StampNation Guests: Welcome Catherine!

May 16, 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…


I’m thrilled to be guesting for Penny Black today!  I’ve been a scrapbooker for more than 20 years and a card maker and rubber stamper for more than 10.  I would say, probably much like YOU, I’m a bit obsessed with this amazing hobby!  I am a blogger, youtuber and the owner and founder of StampNation.  StampNation is an Online Paper Crafting community that has grown beyond my wildest dreams.  It is now bursting at the seams with inspiration, tutorials and the most amazing women on the planet who share this passion. How much do I love Penny Black?  TONS!  I was lucky enough to attend CHA this past January and when I found the PB booth, I walked up and said, “I LOVE Penny Black!”  What a line, right?  It’s true…gorgeous, innovative stamps, dies and stencils that are easy to use on CAS cards, but lend themselves to amazing creativity at the same time.

 We love your color combo today, Catherine , it’s to-die-for FUN!


And for all of you StampNation members, Catherine will have a video tutorial on how to create this card on the StampNation site.

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

    With our long winter, the blue is a delight and resembles “robin’s egg blue” with the hope of spring here in Northern Wisconsin! I had never heard of StampNation but after being allowed to see such talent, I may join in! Thanks to Penny Black for sharing!
