Guest Designer; Jill Foster


Please welcome Guest Designer, Jill Foster!  What a treat to have this uber talented crafter who is a friend and fan of SRM!  We are thrilled to showcase her amazing work with stamps, inks, stickers and just a touch of twine!  Jill is truly an artist who works wonders with any materials that she works with. 

 Always looking for fresh inspiration, Jill loves to create cards, tags, and various mixed media projects.  As her “Inspired By” blog followers know, Jill loves to share her passion for paper, color, stamping, and stickers through video and photo tutorials..  She also designs for Penny Black stamps, Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft, and Ribbons Unlimited.  



'Where to begin! I love working with SRM stickers.  They are of top quality and truly complement any stamped image.  I find them especially wonderful when I've finished a card and left the sentiment for the last step -- with a sticker sentiment there is no worry about ruining an entire project with a stamping boo-boo right at the end!  The pillowboxes were incredibly fun to decorate and they add a handmade touch to gift giving.  The glassine bags are great on cards or for gift giving as well.  I loved that I could ink and distress the bag, too. It's been an honor playing with SRM products and I love that not only is the product wonderful, so are the folks behind-the-scenes at SRM." 

We gave Jill all of the new products from CHA Winter and she had great fun playing with them!  Here's a collage of the various projects that Jill made: 


First up is a stunning card featuring inking and stamping on a glassine bag.  Jill added SRM's new Stickers by the Dozen Thank You to decorate both the outside of the bag and the removable tag.  So beautiful and bold!





The moment Jill opened her package of goodies from SRM she fell in love with the clear Pillow Boxes.  What a perfect palette for her artistry!
Using the Small and Large Pillow Boxes, Jill first decorated them with watercolor panels in some of her signature bright and bold colors.  



Jill then added SRM Thank You Stickers by the Dozen, Mandarin and Lilac Twine some ribbon and buttons.  Simply gorgeous!


For her last project, Jill did a stamped card.  The coloring is exquisite! Who ever knew that stamping and stickers are such good companions! :)  On this card Jill used SRM's new Bright Blank Labels by the Dozen.  She says, "Love that these are labels are blank they work great with stamps!"


Thank you Jill for your wonderful creations.  We love your work and we love that you love your SRM Stickers!

To celebrate Jill's guest spot here at SRM Stickers, we'd like to host a giveaway!  Leave a comment on this post (make sure you're a follower first!) and we'll choose a winner to receive a prize packet that includes all of the SRM products that Jill used in her projects!
