My name is Jacqueline de Groot and I live in the South of France. I love creativity and have been creative all my life. The last eight years I have been attracted to rubber stamps, distress inks and patterned papers and love to make cards as a hobby and it helps me relax. Making cards is also a mission for me as it is a tool of blessing to be able to encourage other people with a hand-made card and a little message to make their day. I have a blog called Jacqueline’s Craft Nest and I would love it if you paid me a visit!

I was so happy to be asked to guest design this week with the beautiful Penny Black stamps. Over the last few months I have been attracted to the new stamps, especially the botanical ones. I find the clings very flexible and excellent to use. They give a beautiful stamped image, which means success every time!

We’re so glad you’re here with us, Jacqueline, sharing your stunning cards. We begin today with this beautiful floral design. How did Jacqueline achieve this beautiful look? Her technique is so fun! She inked up our 25-003 Verdant Stencil Design (yes, inked the actual stencil itself) then spritzed it with water before pressing it onto her cardstock. Genius!

Jill layered several Creative Dies in addition to background stamping using our new T for Transparent stamps, 30-240 Textures and 30-238 Footnotes, when designing her 8.5” x 11” scrapbook page. As a design alternative, Jill’s quadrant of die cuts could also be added to a pocket memory-keeping page.

If you look closely you’ll spy how Heather has used our new Pocket Treasures T for Transparent sets to stamp her background. And her use of the Creative Die 51-053 A Pocket Full and coordinating stamp 30-247 Life’s Journals created the perfect place to add her journaling.

For Heather’s card, she achieved a hip “grungy” look by layering lots of background stamping and inking and then adding a bright pop of color with Creative Die 51-054 By the Numbers.
