It's a TAC BLOG HOP

Hi there! If you are joining me, then you are in for a real treat! I don't normally post over the weekend. I mean heck, half the time I don't have enough to share during the week, LOL. But tonight is special as I'm participating in a Blog Hop with some fellow Angels. I'm excited to share some wonderful cards featuring The Angel Company (TAC) papers and stamps.

Our theme for the blog hop is to replenish our card stash. We could use any theme so I decided to do a few cards using new stamp sets from TAC's new catalog (do you have one? Do you need one? Just contact me!!) First up is this darling bear from the Bears & Bubbles set. I used a technique I learned at seminar known as skin tones to Stickles technique.


The bear REALLY shines so I had to include a close up so you could see that!!

Pretty, huh? The dots were made with VersaMark and a pencil eraser. Next up is a super cute image PERFECT for summer - it's called Hit the Beach.

For this one, I used prismacolor pencils and OMS...I've really been practicing my coloring and LOVE how this turned out - I even shaded!! Yeah, for me!! I used crystal lacquer on the snorkel mask but not sure you can see that. The paper is from A Little Whimsy...Doesn't it just SCREAM summer???


For my last card I used a set known as Jeans & Wings. I used Lilly Anna SWIC for the papers & cardstocks. It's one of my favorite lines!


I colored the adorable image using my Dove blender pen and Aquacolor crayons. I bought the crayons last year and haven't used them much. They are getting a workout now though! I added Crystal Stickles to her wings - I mean wings have to sparkle, right?!


Well there you have it - I hope you've enjoyed my creations! To see more wonderful creations using TAC products just visit my fellow Angels blogs. I can't wait to visit their blogs and see what they've done! They are:
