Introducing PB&J: Weekly Tutorial Videos

May 9, 2011

We are thrilled to announce a new feature on the blog today–weekly tutorial videos by our designer Jill Foster!  Sit back and enjoy Penny Black and Jill, or as we like to say “PB & J.”   And be sure to visit every Monday for lots of  delicious inspiration.  Let’s begin! (Watch directly on YouTube by clicking HERE.)

Here’s another look at the cards featured in today’s video:

Finally, click HERE to download a PDF with full instructions and ingredients for all three cards.


Now for our challenge this week… This week we challenge you to create tall cards using Penny Black stamps.  Upload your work to our Gallery by Midnight Sunday night, PST and be sure to tag your entry with “pennyblacktallcard“. We’ll choose a winning entry to receive their choice of a Penny Black transparent set of stamps and a package of Mix & Match cardstock. The winner will be announced in next Tuesday’s post. Good luck and happy stamping!

    Thank you so much for the video to go along with the cards. Just loved them and learned some new techniques – loved the “candy” – I’ll have to buy some.

    I’ve adored PB stamps for years and have many of them and within the last 6 months added Jill as a favorite and now you two are together, just like Peanutbutter and Jelly you guys are awesome!!! One of the things I love about the video is that Jill used the same set of stamps for all three cards…fabulous!!!

    PB&J…I love it! 🙂 FABULOUS tutorials – it made my Monday too.

    Loved the video and the cards. What a great new feature and the name is great! Jill is the queen of distress.

    Thank you for such good clear and user friendly instructions. These videos are going to be a delish addition.

    I really loved the techniques in these cards. Jill is definitely the distress inks queen! Inspired by the cards on her own blog, I have got myself quite a few distress inks and I can’t wait to try out these techniques. I absolutely loved the paisley backgrounds (tone on tone). The green one reminds me a lot of Indian henna designs! In fact, that dark moss green is called Henna color 🙂 Thanks for sharing these!

    This is a lovely idea & much appreciated. The vibrancy of the flowers is amazing.

    I enjoyed the video for these darling cards so much that I’d like to make some. However, I’ve searched & searched for the little ‘Candi’ paper pieces & cannot find them for sale on the net in the USA. Any suggestions where I might find them in my country?
