Designer Spotlight; Heather Telford
How/when did you begin stamping? I started stamp as a teenager because I loved making my own cards. I got back into it as an adult about 10 years ago.
What is your favorite technique/style? My favourite technique is to mask an area on my cards and complete my stamping inside the mask, usually using sponging to define the edges.
What Penny Black product are you most drawn to? I am drawn to silhouette stamps, particularly nature ones because they are perfect for creating landscapes.
What do you do when you’re in a stamping ‘slump’? When I am in a stamping slump, I browse other people’s creations, on their blogs, in galleries and on Pinterest.
How would you describe your craft space in three words? My creative retreat.
What would be your advice to beginner stampers? Buy 1 set of sentiments, one set of images, white cardstock and a few colours in both ink and cardstock. It is amazing what you can do with limited supplies. As you start stamping you will work out what you want more of, and what doesn’t appeal at all. Also, browse the blogs for ideas.
Do you have any questions for our readers? Are there any techniques you would like to learn how to do?
