My Favourites by Alison Hall

Hello Stampers!

This will be my last post for The Artistic Stamper. I have decided that the time has come to move on. I've spent a great 4 years on Jennie's team, using her wonderful Artistic Stamper stamps. I'm so grateful to dear Jennie for giving me my first ever design team opportunity, and the chance to work with some very talented Teamies.

I've had a scroll through all 115 projects that I've made for the Blog, and picked out my six favourite pieces.

I was a guest designer back in 2010, so I thought I'd share my very first piece of art for the Blog. It's a Steampunk frame that I made, using some of the fabulous Steampunk Stamps. You can see my post and tutorial HERE.

Here's a trio of frames that I made in January 2011, using one of my favourite sets of stamps, The Nudes Plate. HERE's my original post.

Next comes another piece from 2011, a canvas using some of the fabulous Artistic Stamper Background Stamps. Jennie has this hanging up in her shop :-) HERE's my original post.

Another of my favourite sets of Artistic Stamper stamps is the Seaside Plate No. 1. Here, I used the stamps on a piece of Stampbord, and altered a mint tin back in 2012. HERE's my original post.

I've always loved to make wearable art, and here's a Grungebord cuff that I made in 2013. And HERE's my original post.

In the last couple of years, I've started to enjoy using paint a lot more, and here's a tiny canvas that I made in May this year, with an abstract background, and one of the lovely Gibson Girls. And, HERE'S my original post.

There does seem to be an abundance of blue in the pieces that I've chosen! Lol! So I'll throw one more piece in, if I may. It's a card I made in May this year, using the wonderful Dressmaking Plate No. 1, and some warmer colours. HERE'S my original post.

Phew! I hope you're all still with me!

Finally, I'd like to say a huge thanks to Jennie & my wonderful Teamies (past & present),
and of course, to all of you fabulous crafters, who have given me so much support and encouragement over the last four years.
