Peet Roeven

How/when did you begin stamping? Many years ago – I remember the first Penny Black stamp I purchased. It was that sweet stamp with two hedgehogs hanging on heart balloons (at that time it was woodmounted now it is available in slapstick/cling) – Hedgehog Kisses.

What is your favorite technique/style? Paper Piecings and Wet Embossing (with a lot of layering and hand-stitching).

Which Penny Black product are you most drawn to? It is hard to choose just one. I love that Penny Black has so much variety. Sometime I like nature and other times I like cute stamps.

What do you do when you’re in a stamping ‘slump’? I start paper piecing an image, then the idea mostly will come itself .  Or, I visit blogs or pinterest.

What would be your advice to beginner stampers? For cutting/trimming a stamped image I always use Pergamano scissors.

How would you describe your craft space? The kitchen is my craft space.

Do you have any questions for our readers? What is/are your favorite Penny Black stamp(s)?

SUPPLIES: Joyful Birds & Madison Paper Pad.

    So interesting to hear of Peet’s choice of scissors & I love the advice about starting & then the ideas happen – we’re all so different in approaching a creation & this is illustrated beatifully by the PB Design Team.
    Favourite stamp – that’s very hard indeed – I think it would have to be the Blue Wings 2422J

    Great card!
    I, like you, find it hard to choose a favorite PB stamp but, if pressured, I would say Brushstrokes. I am looking forward to seeing more of your wonderful creations.

    Your creations are always so beautiful – your style is very unique and personal! I love the way you use subtle color. The animals are my favorite PB stamps. Wishing you a sunshine day!

    I am a big fan of Peet’s work and I’m constantly marking her cards as “favorites” in Flickr. Her fussy cutting is amazing, as well as her handstitching which gives all her cards the perfect finishing touch.
