Learning Through Inspiration: Jill Foster (Day One)

My Learning Through Inspiration series continues today on the Penny Black blog. You can find my post here. Would love if you checked it out. Here's a snippet of the card I made inspired by the card artist Jill Foster.



I  had recently purchased a bunch of Penny Black stamps in anticipation of doing a series on the amazing Jill Foster when Jill reached out to me on behalf of Penny Black to do a series on its blog. Thanks so much to Jill and Penny Black for providing me with additional new products from its Timeless series.

I'll be back on the Penny Black blog two more times, but I'll be sharing a lot more Penny Black here.

If you are new to my blog, welcome. You can find more about this series here.

MOOD WHEN DONE: EEEK. I'm pretty excited. I love writing and I love stamping and the opportunity to write in my own voice on a company blog has been a goal of mine. And for it to be Penny Black is a super dream come true! I hope you enjoy the series.

  4. I'm on my laptop and, weird, but I can't leave comments on WordPress blogs, so I'll comment here. I enjoy these posts of yours and your very useful observations I can apply to my own card making. Note to self about stamping the sentiment first. Been down that road. That's such a gorgeous stamp you used! You and Jill have shown how it can be used over and over again and never the same card twice. You did a beautiful job. Sigh... I need more Penny Black in my life. Thanks, Joan!

  10. Thank you so much for this series! It's given me a new way to think about looking for inspiration -- and it's also challenged me to see whether I can identify things about my own cards that make up my "style" (I'm not sure I have one!). I also ditto the congrats on having your work on the Penny Black Blog -- that's a dream of mine!
