An Interview with Lisa Foster

Happy Sunday everyone!!

I wanted to share with you a little "interview" that our June Sugar, Lisa Foster, completed with us!

First, isn't she GORGEOUS? Your smile is so lovely Lisa and while I've never met you, I feel your smile burst out of my computer every time I read your blog or an email!

Tell us about the first time you stamped.

I went to a Stampin’ Up! Party at a friends house having no clue about what stamping even was! As soon as I saw the beautiful cards the Demo had made, my jaw was on the floor. After she showed us how she’d made those amazing cards, I was hooked!!! Now I’m hopelessly addicted with no chance of recovery!

What 3 stamp related products can you not live without?

I love color, so definitely I couldn’t live without my Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. I also would be very lost without my Cuttlebug!

What is your favorite technique to use?

My favorite technique is masking, because I love to build scenes with the images.

What process do your follow to create a card?

Gosh, I wish I had a “process”. It depends on if I’m doing a challenge, or just making a card. If it’s a challenge, Of course I begin there, if it’s something on my own, I usually start with the image or images, then choose color, layout and lastly embellishments.

Describe your style for us.

I don’t think I really have a style per se. I consider myself an eclectic stamper. I like all types of art, so I suppose that reflects in my own crafting.

I feel like something is missing from a card if it doesn't have
lots of color

If you won the lottery, what stamp related item(s) would you buy first???

Wow, that is a really tough question because I truly do want it all…LOL. I think I would buy the rest of the Copic markers that I don’t currently own.

If you knew you were dying, who would you will your crafting supplies to???

My daughter, Katie. She is an excellent stamper, scrapbooker and artist. .

If you could attend a stamping party with 3 of your "idols" who would they be?

Michelle Bartnett, Michelle Wooderson, and Amy Werner.

What is your favorite MSB image or line?

I love all of the MSB images, but my favorite MSB image is Girly-Girl Rain Boots.

Along that same line - what MSB image is You?

The Girly-Girl Rain boots ARE SO me…Feminine, Rugged and Funky all at the same time!

What's your guilty pleasure?

Ice Cream for sure!

Where do you see yourself in 20 years?

Still hiding Hobby Lobby receipts from my husband…LOL

Tell me more about you - the basics: family, job, other hobbies/interests, etc. Anything you want people to know about you. Have you ever been published/won a stamping contest, etc.

I have a wonderful, very supportive husband, Ed. WE have 2 kids, Kurt and Katie, who are both currently serving in the US Army. We have 1 gorgeous granddaughter, Holly, who is 20 months old. I work as a nurse in an outpatient surgery center. My husband and I are both avid motorcyclists and snowmobilers (yes, I ride my own). You’d be surprised how much stamping stuff you can fit on a motorcycle…LOL.

I am currently on the Jessica Lynn Original and Beary Box Design Teams. I’ve never published, but I hope to be one day.

Thanks Lisa for sharing a little bit about you. We are thrilled to have you as our June Guest Designer!

Lisa Foster is from Marlette, Michigan. You can find her at SCS and PCP as well as other galleries as lisa foster. Head over to her blog and see all the lovely things she has there: Stampin' for Sanity

I also asked Lisa to share her favorite card/project to date that used Modern Sugar Blvd images. Here it is:

It's one of my favorite cards too! Lisa has a terrific knack for creating a layout that really puts the focus on the image and using embellishments as accents and not focal points.
Stick around because we aren't done sharing all the wonderful creations that Lisa has to share this month!
Have a Sweet day Sugars!!
