I got to play with ELLIE! Heather Hambleton is the illustrator for all of the Sweetie Pie line images. Heather is an uber talented artist! I am sure you are going to agree with me when I say that her images are the cutest! She tells us she has been drawing ever since she was old enough to hold a pencil. We we are so happy to have her as part of our team!

Card Details:
  • images-computer print-out of ELLIE (of the soon-to-be released HUMBLE PIE SWEETIE PIE stamp line), sentiment is The Greeting Farm.

Ellie was given some colour with the use of Nicholson's Peerless Transparent Watercolour sheets. Her eyes were made to shine using Judy Kins' Diamond Glaze. Ellie's hair was provided some shimmer thanks to Diamond Stickles. The sentiment was inked-up with VersaFine Onyx Black.

  • DP-October Afternoon's Cherry Hill: Cookie Jar
  • cardstock-a variety of manufacturers
  • buttons-provided by Phebe, The Town Scrapper
Most of the supplies used to create this card were obtained from The Town Scrapper.
This stamp, as well as others will be available for purchase only at the Town Scrapper! We are taking preorders now, so if you want to be sure to get your stamp, give Phebe a call, (519*882*0623) or send her an email…(

Phebe is offering a GRAND PRIZE to those bloppers who leave a comment on all 6 Humble Pie designer blogs. After you have commented on all six blogs, you will end up at Phebe/The Town Scrapper's blog.
