Guest Designer; Lisa Bourget

December 8, 2011

Hi! I’m Lisa Bourget (a.k.a. 78thistles), and I am honored to have won the World Card Making Challenge on the Penny Black Blog. I would like to thank Penny Black for allowing me to share my work here with their wonderful stamps.

My husband and I live at the edge of an orchard in Massachusetts, with our two great boys. After I put my guys on the school bus, I like to be in my studio creating as much as I can. I like many types of media, though papercrafting is top on my list! I’ve been stamping for about three years and have enjoyed every minute. My style leans toward a slightly embellished Clean and Simple look. I love trying new techniques and products to see what I can do with them. I also enjoy changing up stamps as they are and combining different stamps together. Adding dimension with punched elements or whatever else I find interesting is not usual to see on my cards.

I had such a great time working with these Penny Black stamps and Mix & Match Cardstock. I worked with wood-mounted, cling, and clear stamps, and all three were excellent – all inked up great the first use! Penny Black’s range of stamp styles is terrific so anyone can find just what they’re looking for and not be disappointed. Thank you so much for the opportunity!

    Congratulations. The variety of techniques & styles is a joy – the bag is quite amazing, I love the detail of the stamped tissue paper. The Santa tags are a super idea & again it is the detail that catches my eye.

    I absolutely love the wreath card. it is beautiful in it’s simplicity. The card with the birds answers my ongoing question about what to do with a stamp facing one direction when you really want them to face another. i just wish you had more instructions about using the tissue paper this way. thanks for sharing your wonder cards
