Whipper Snapper Release and Stamper's Dream!

Hi everyone! Okay, this is going to be a long post, but I have LOTS of exciting news to share today!!

First, today is the release day for three new Anna Wight cling mount sets at Whipper Snapper Designs. If you know me at all, you know I LOOOOVE Whipper Snapper and Anna's illustrations. Sooooo, you can imagine how incredibly excited I was to be asked by Anna (THE Anna herself!) and the owners of Whipper Snapper, John and Lisa, to join the design team for September and October! OMG, YAYYYYY! Thank you Anna, John, and Lisa!!! I feel so lucky to be working with all of you and the incredibly talented DT for the next couple months!

So here's my card using Anna's new Crazy for Chickens set. I love this set. Not only are the chickens adorable, but check out that funny sentiment. What a crack up! Love it! I just had to use it on the first card I made, LOL!

The main image was watercolored with SU classic ink. All of the stamps used on this card are in Anna's set, even the "grain" around the main image. The Close to Cocoa panel that the chicken is matted on is up on dimensionals. The inside of the card has a Pumpkin panel, a White panel, and then I stamped the same green checker pattern along the bottom.

RECIPE ~
Stamps: Whipper Snapper/Anna Wight Crazy for Chickens
Paper: Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie, Papertrey Select White, K&Company Fall Harvest Mat Pad (green scalloped DP), Provocraft Butteream DP from Michael's (yellow checker DP)
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Orange and Cocoa Gingham Ribbon from Joanne's, Scallop Edge Punch, Dimensionals
Technique: Watercoloring


...The new SCS Fan Club gallery opened TODAY! Soooo, if you're a fan club member on SCS, be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made this month and to see the newest dirty girls...drumroll...Mary Jo Albright and Jennifer Buck! Welcome to the dirt pile, girls!!! You both so deserve to be in the dirt pile and I can't wait to get to know you better. Enjoy the ride, it goes fast.


...now for some MORE exciting news! Just this weekend, I got an email from Michelle at Stamper's Dream asking me to be a part of her incredibly talented DT starting in November! ...oh my word, seriously, can you feel how much my head is spinning right now?! She not only has such a great variety of stamps and supplies in her store, but she's super nice and has SUCH an incredibly talented team. Thank you, Michelle, for the opportunity and to everyone on the DT who gave me such a warm welcome yesterday! I think you're all awesome!

That's it for today. Be sure to stop back throughout the week, as I'll have more cards using Anna's new cling mount sets!
