Please extend a warm welcome to our newest designer

November 2, 2012

Meet Therese Schaffer! This New Yorker calls Texas home, and has written a short bio to tell everyone more about herself:

“I am a SAHM to 2 children who keep me very busy. I have dabbled in some sort of craft since I was a child. My first introduction to stamping was at a SU! party 5 years ago. I had no idea what this party entailed but once I got my hands on those stamps and inks, I was completely hooked. I started sharing my cards on Flickr just last year and finally created a blog a few months ago. I lean toward a clean and simple look (love white space) but I am willing to try different techniques and mediums for a different effect. I have always loved Penny Black stamps. My first ever set of clear stamps were Spooky and Holly-Jolly – love those little critters (especially Hedgie)! The collection has vastly multiplied! I am so very thankful to Shaida for this opportunity. I am very excited to be on the Penny Black design team and am looking forward to working with the rest of these talented women and sharing my work with you all.”

Therese shares her creations on her blog, Cardography, and has sent us a few of her favorites to share here:

Stamps used:  Free Flight 30-117 , Warm Wishes 40-074 , Sweet Home 40-054 , Gratitude 30-105

There is glitter on the furry parts of the birds’ hats.  Also, Therese added flock on the snow that these cute little birds are standing on.  The images were colored with Prismacolor Pencils. Here’s a close up:


Stamps usedChristmas Friends 30-084 &  Winder Wonderland 30-083

Make sure to say “Hi!” to Therese, and see what she contributed to this week’s Pinterest challenge, too!

    Brilliant to see the use of pencils with that little flock of birds & I love the subtle variations in colouring to create different cards.
