Autumn Blog Hop

Don't you just love the cool crisp feel of fall... when the leaves change colors and you just want to snuggle up with a good book and your favorite blanket!

Debra Miller is hosting a 1st day of Autumn hop and she was gracious enough to extend it a little longer so more of us could join in!

I made this card using an older TAC set called Luscious Leaves... It's perfect for an Autumn hop! I colored the leaf with my aqua watercolor crayons and die cut with Labels 3. I then ironed beeswax over the top... the paper is Blackbird Collection from Memory Box. I hope you will join in on the fun....

Thank you for stopping by!

A Very Sad Day

This was posted today on The Angel Company web site

It is with great sadness that I must announce we are hanging up our wings. These past several years our industry has faced enormous challenges and as a result, we have seen many companies close their doors. We continued to hope we could see The Angel Company through this recession and back into prosperous days and we held onto this hope as long as we could.

One of the largest challenges affecting each of us is our industry not being able to support all of the direct sales companies in our field. Even in a healthy economy, we are a niche market trying to compete for a very limited number of distributors. As a small company, this has been a grueling challenge for us. Times are tough for everyone ~ in direct sales and retail environments.

I would like to thank each of you for being an customer and Angel these past 14 years. Indeed, it has been a pleasure to serve you.

The Angel Company

I have been with The Angel Company since 2005 and it has been such a blessing in my life! Thank you Mischelle for all these past years, and for including me in your TAC family!

God Bless

"Christmas In July" Angel Art Blog Hop

It's time for another Angel Art Blog Hop sponsored by Paper Wings! I have been crafting up a storm and and have quite the odd mix of Christmas that I'd like to share.

First is a very traditional Christmas Tin & Card Gift Set using a new TAC stamp from Nina B. called Love Never Fails. This isn't even a Christmas set, but I knew right away it would be perfect... I can see lots of uses for this set and I'm sure it will become one of my favorites!

Next is a  vintage 3 sided ornament featuring the lovely lady from the hostess set Beautiful Soul. She was colored with Copics and I used melted beeswax over the piece before it was framed inside the Heirloom Nestabilitie.The shape was cut from corrugated cardboard and dry brushed with lt. ivory acrylic paint sprinkled with glitter while wet. I decided I liked it turned upside down with the touch of pearls across the top. I added a rayon tassel and loop for hanging and a velvet ribbon to finish it off.
Last is a very un-traditional Christmas Card using Joyful Ornaments and the More Mimi paper collection. Love the richness of this one! I embossed the ornament with Versa Magic Pink Petunia & Clear EP the top of the ornament was Embossed with Color Box Platinum & Clear EP. I pieced the two papers and the border that I cut from Parisian Accents together then cut using Labels 5, a string of pearls on each side finish it off.

Be sure to check out the wonderful Christmas creations from these talented angels below!

Angel Art Blog Hop "Clean and Simple"

Tonight I'm sharing a clean & simple card I designed for one of my card classes a few months ago. I used one of my favorite floral sets by Mabelle RO called Simply Devine. It is on the retired list and will only be available through June. I created a vase  from one of our double sided papers More Mimi SWIC and my extra jumbo circle punch and by trimming a piece from the bottom. I stamped the flowers with one of my favorite VersaMagic Dew Drop collections called Jewel Box. The sentiment comes from a level B Hostess set called Love You. Thank you Paper Wings for sponsoring another great blog hop! Now make sure you check out the wonderful creations from these angels listed below.
