Look who's a Torchbearer!

Alright - so it's not in the Olympic sense, but this is much more fun! I've been asked to be a part of the August 2010 Design Team, so I'm carrying the torch for the next four weeks and I hope I can do some justice to these fabulous products, which you can find at AMBER INK.

The other torchbearers this month are some truly talented and wonderful ladies - be sure to check 'em out!

Of course, the General Stamping Ambassador of Awesomeness is the amazing Shannan Teubner, which means you can't help but to ALWAYS be inspired by some super duper Amber Ink awesomeness! And never to be forgotten, Amber...a creative genius!

There's some super fun new releases coming up and this card features one of the new kiddos!

I used some of the hot pink swiss dots ipaper, which was a first attempt at printing on our new printer with some Staples paper. I liked the muted rose that it turned out as, though, and rather than waste it, I used it and tried to match a button for the layered bow.

A computer generated sentiment and it's my niece's birthday card. She was tickled pink by this cutie! "It's me in school!" (She's not yet in school, but she's hoping this fall she'll get there.) This was exactly what my niece looked like when she opened up her Dora birthday video and Zhu Zhu Hamster house, too....such a blast when they're that age (and you can douse them in sugar & send them home!)

Be sure to check out what the other ladies carrying the August Torch have got under their sleeves. Special thanks to the July Talented Carriers of the Torch for their inspiring creations, which included my friend Karin (who passed along her torch), as well as Nicole, Pinky, Suzi and Taylor.

  1. Very cute Tanis! A perfect card for your niece, I can imagine how tickled she must have been! Love the button treatment!

  2. Darling! LOVE the sentiment you created for this image! I have one in the works that starts with Psst but then goes on to say something different! Aren't these Amber Ink images fun?

  3. This is so Suhweeet! I'm so glad you gave it to your little niece and that she loved it. This card was absolutely meant to make a real kiddo feel special. The "Happy Birthday" on the card is a great touch too.
