Featured Designer - Harriet





I live in Castro Valley, California, which is across the bay from San Francisco.  I’ve been married for 30 years to my wonderful husband Bruce and we have 1 daughter, Alexis and 3 sweet and fun cats!  Bruce and I both retired in 2008 and we love it.  I started on the blog team for Mark’s Finest Papers in August, 2010, and then onto the Sr. Design Team in October, 2011.  I love to make cards.  My favorite technique is paper piecing.  I am generally a clean and simple stamper but do like to try techniques and different styles.  When I am not stamping I am knitting for charity, reading and traveling.  You can see my work in the galleries as well as on my blog, allycatcards@blogspot.com.


You can find Harriet's tutorial here on SpeedyTV.

Featured Designer - Patty Penn





Hello and welcome to Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company's new weekly Speedy Fox Featured Designer spotlight and tutorial. Each week, we will be highlighting one of our Senior Design Team members and bringing you a tutorial they will be presenting.
This week's Featured Designer is our Senior Design Team Liasion Patty and she will be presenting a video tutorial on using Nestabilities.
I have been stamping for 10+ years.  I have been on Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company's Senior Design team for almost 2 years.  I enjoy making cards more than anything else, although I do scrapbook our vacations and other special occasions.  My favorite technique is using Copics to color, and my favorite card is the center step card.  I have been married to a wonderful guy for 30 years and we have 3 "fur children", Winnie, Geordi & Nyko. 


You can view Patty's tutorial here on SpeedyTV: http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com/video/how-to-use-nestabilities.  While you're visiting SpeedyTV, check out the other video  and step-by-step tutorials listed on the site. 

Also don't forget about our new release blog hop starting today here on the Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company blog.

Featured Stamper- Pat Garvin

Hello and welcome to Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company's new weekly Speedy Fox Featured Designer spotlight and tutorial. Each week, we will be highlighting one of our Senior Design Team members and bringing you a tutorial they will be presenting.



This week's Featured Designer is our Speedy Fox Blog Team Leader Pat and she will be presenting a tutorial on Coloring on Black Card Stock.


Hi my name is Pat. I live in sunny Central Florida moving here in 2005 from Northeast Ohio. My husband and I live on a small farm. We raise Berkshire pigs. You can also find a couple cows, dogs, a flock of chickens and various wild creatures that roam our pastures. My 4 children have all flown the coop. The youngest is in college hoping to work with Shamu or work in a zoo when she graduates. I have been on the MFP a HC Sr. DT since january 2012. I started stamping back in 2004. My daughter wanted to learn to scrap book. The park programs in our county in Ohio were awesome. We spent many hours participating in hikes and crafts of all kinds. This time they were having a scrapbook night. You could make a page or make 3 cards. My daughter made her page and I made 3 cards. Been hooked ever since. I especially love trying techniques and making my own backgrounds to use on my cards instead of designer paper. I truly find this a relaxing hobby.



To view the Full Tutorial for this technique, please click HERE.


(This card was made with the soon to be released Lighthouses stamp set.)
