Orchard Girl and team call

It is my pleasure to announce that I'm now a template designer at Scrap Orchard!  I'm beyond thrilled.

I'm running also running a creative team call.  I'd love for some traditional crafters to join my team as well.  

Thank You

7 Kids College Fund offered a challenge to create a thank you card.    Since completing my last challenge, I already had pink and yellow papers out.   I searched through my Magnolia stash and found this adorable little angel from the Fall Stamp Club.   She's absolutely precious!   I thought that she'd be a lot of fun paired with a "thank you" sentiment.



It feels good to stamp!

Maybe I should say, it feels good to color!

One of my co-workers is a Stampin' Up demonstrator and she gave me a TON of discontinued cardstock and some designer paper too!  I was using Gingerbread Tilda and wanted something more fall in theme.   I decided to use yellows and green and honestly, I couldn't be happier with the results.  I used Copics and some distress inks.

I have wanted this stamp for such a long time!  I finally had the opportunity to order it and when my order was lost, I cried!   Lucky for me, the seller reshipped my order and this lovely girl arrived safe in my hands!
I've been admiring the work of Angie Hunt and truly envy her ability to work with distress inks.  A few months ago, I won  a set of distress inks from her!   I still haven't mastered any of the techniques as of yet, but I'm working on creating deep shadows using the Walnut Stain distress ink.  I colored my image with Copics and then used the distress ink to really bring out the shadows.    As usual, I have no idea which papers I used.  I'm on a big mission to use my stash and didn't keep track of my papers.   (I really wish all paper companies would print their name on the back!)

Last but not least is this cutie.  She was in the same order of stamps that got lost.   I was so happy to finally get her!  I've had this pack of paper for a long time and honestly, I really don't like it.  But like I've said, I'm on a mission to use it up!    I think it looks great as a background for this image!

Santa and Hug Me

He's checking his list, he's checking it twice...

My adorable Fall kit arrived last month and this is the first chance I've had to use it! :)

First up is Edwin.

I reached far into my stash and found these Christmas papers.  I have no idea who makes them.  The ribbon is new, I found it at Michaels earlier this year.  I didn't keep track of my colors, please forgive me.

Next up is this cutie for the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. The challenge was to create using pink and yellow.   This presented a little challenge for me as I didn't have any pink or yellow paper.  I'm really on a mission to use some of my personal stash before I run out and buy more paper!   For those of you that know me, you know that I've been stamping for nearly 20 years.   I have demonstrated for Stampin' Up, Close to My Heart, and a host of other companies.   I may have sold off many of the stamps, but I kept almost all the papers.   I went digging through my old Close to My Heart stash and found some adorable papers.  I have no idea what collection they are from or if they're still available (I'm guessing no).   I used some silk flowers and ribbon from Michaels.  The leaves are from Sizzix.  I also used some paper flowers from Prima.
