Designer Inspiration with Jill: Day 2

May 19, 2015

Click HERE to view today’s new SIMPLICITY creation.


And now scroll down for more colorful inspiration from Jill!


As the temps outside begin to rise, here on the blog we are also heating things up with designer inspiration! Over the next several weeks our designers will be bringing you inspiration and design ideas featuring their trademark styles and products from our new collection, Sunshine and Smiles. This week Jill Foster joins us with colorful fun!


It’s no secret that Jill loves butterflies… today she is stamping with the elegant pair found in our transparent set, 30-296 Floral & Feathers.



A simple watercolor technique makes this artistic look easy to achieve. Just color directly onto your stamp with markers, press onto paper, and then go back with a paintbrush and water to blend the color.
