Sneak Peek Samples

I am so excited to be unveiling 5 new Artful Inkables stamp sets! Only one more day before they will become available. I just wish I was having more luck stamping some awesome samples of the new sets to share you all! It has been so long since I've been ables to stamps that I think it might take awhile to get my 'mojo' back! I did stamp one card earlier this week but honestly, Im not very happy with it. I will share it with you since it is all I have at the moment but I urge you to visit the blogs of our Design team to see some more exciting samples!!

Both the background and the focal point of this card was made using our new Pressed Petals stamp set. Other materials are as follows: Card stock Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla and Elegant Eggplant from Stampin' Up! - May Arts stitched organdy ribbon, Dew Drops and stickles.

It is high noon here in Utah and it is HIGH TIME I announce the members of our NEW DESIGN TEAM!

But first let me Thank the over 100 talented stampers who applied for these positions...You all ROCK!! I really, really wish I could have taken you all, it takes real guts to apply for a position of this sort and I know not making it is hard! But take comfort in the fact the the competition was fierce and there were only 5 positions to fill...that is a small percentage to be sure. So pat yourselves on the back, it was a close race.

Now please join me in congratulating the 5 talented ladies who will be the Artful INKables Artists for the next six months.

The New Design Team Members are:

Jennifer Muraoka
Julia Aston
Kim Teasdale
Pam Miller and
Beth Thomas

Then be sure to join us all here next week for the sneak peek of our FIVE NEW STAMP SETS!! These lovely ladies will be showcasing our new sets and soon as I get them into their hot little hands.

And finally I want to thank everyone for finding our blossoming new stamp company and spreading the news about our new venture. It was so much fun for me to read about all of you who had just found us and loved what they saw!! I look forward to hearing from you all again, and I hope you will feel free to share your AI artwork with us...and spread the word!

Get Well Thanks!

A big THANKS to Jennifer over at her Glitter in my Hair crafting blog for the lovely Get Well card she sent using AI stamps! I really appreciate you thinking of me Jennifer and I LOVE that you sent a card using our cool is that? I'm posting her card here for all of you to enjoy but be sure to visit her blog for all the card making details.

And for those of you who have asked for an update on our healing: we are both doing well! Thanks! My daughter is all healed and has moved on. As for me, there were some setbacks but lots of progress. The setback...a broken foot bone that went unnoticed in the ER. The progress, I now have a walking cast boot which makes it much easier to walk. In fact I can get around the house without crutches and even take the stairs to bed. The less injured ankle is much stronger due to my physical therapy and is also making it much easier to get around. A few more weeks and I should be as good as new like my daughter.
