Keep reading for details...


Introducing the HUMBLE PIE SWEETIE PIE Illustrator/Designer:
Heather Hambleton is the illustrator for all of the Humble Pie Sweetie Pie images. Heather is an uber talented artist! 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 the Humble Pie Design Team!
Here is Heather's story:

This sweet, beautiful girl is only 19 years old! She is creative beyond her years! I predict a fantastic future for this girl!

Here is what Heather shared with me:
Hi there! My name is Heather Hambleton and I have recently started designing stamps for a line called Humble Pie! I live in Southwestern Ontario, Canada, and I am a former Beal Art student. I have been drawing since I was old enough to hold up a pencil. Drawing is definitely what I would call my one true passion in life! But when I’m not drawing I can be found at the gym or reading a good book. I am super excited to be designing for Phebe's new HUMBLE PIE stamp line at The Town Scrapper as she is just such an exceptionally amazing lady! Hopefully all goes well and you will like my images as much as she does!! -Heather
So, welcome Heather to the world of stamping, paper crafts, and card making!

Card Details (for above card):

  • stamps-SWEETIE PIE'S Witch Maggie and pumpkin, sentiment is C.C. Designs' Autumn Sentiments
Witch Maggie and the pumpkin was printed on Fabriano 140 lbs cold pressed watercolour paper and painted with Reeves Water Colour Pencils. The orange accents on her hat, hair elastics and collar were given a little sparkle with Diamond Stickles. Her cape, hat and boots were outlined using Black Diamond Stickles. I added some sparkle to Maggie's eyes with Judy Kins' Diamond Glaze. The sentiment was stamped on painted Fabriano watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black.

This cute little card layout is one I found on Sheetload of Cards (May 2009 issue).
