StampNation Guests: Welcome Heather!

May 13, 2014

We love discovering places for stampers to play, find inspiration, and learn. If you haven’t heard of StampNation be sure you check out their amazing community. StampNation members have access to over 400 videos, a classroom, fun challenges, gallery, message boards, and more! And as we mentioned last week, Penny Black is proudly sponsoring one of their challenges as we speak. Lucky for us we can get a taste of their designers’ talent here on our blog as we have 6 very special guests joining us this week! Let’s check out who’s up today…


Hi, my name is Heather North and I am an avid paper crafter who got my start in scrapbooking as a teenager.  The card-making bug bit me hard a few years ago and I decided to start a blog to have an excuse to make even more cards. Almost a year and a half ago I joined the design team at StampNation and have been consumed by the stamping world ever since.  I’ve been having fun working with Penny Black stamps because of their wide variety of styles and lovely sentiments.  They are perfect for any occasion.

Heather, we just love the elegant look you’ve achieved using our collage stamp 4381L Gathering Together.


Even the inside is gorgeous!!


And just to tease you a little bit J, here’s a peek at another Penny Black creation by Heatherthat we snuck over from the StampNation site. (Sssh!! Don’t tell!)

    The first card is nice, but I’m not keen on the vintage collage stamps. But the second card is definitely a “WOW”. Love everything about it!!!

    Thank you for all the lovely comments. I’m so touched and humbled by all of you. If I ever have a day where I need some cheering up I will come back to this post. 🙂 I’ve added a new post and video if you would like to see how I created the background of my focal piece.

    Thank you again, Jill and the Penny Black team for giving me the honor of guesting on your blog. Your stamps make it easy to create works of art.
