The Angel Company

Chris Franco is a dear friend, and a wonderful demo. Way back in the day, when I thought all good stamps came from Stampin' Up, I lamented the severe lack of good stamps with hats for my Red Hat Society customers. A friend of mine showed me a catalog from The Angel Company (TAC), and I immediately was seduced. Not only did they have a brilliant selection of hat stamps, but the cost was about a third to a quarter of what I would pay for similarly sized stamps from SU. TAC stamps are great deal no matter who sells them to you, but Chris always goes the extra yard.

Right now is a good example of how Chris goes the extra yard. Right now she is sponsoring a card sketch at Card Patterns, and not only is she offering the usual prize package most sketch sponsors offer, but if you email her with an order and mention Card Patterns, it will be tax free!

Anyway, since Chris is sponsoring the sketch, I have to do it, and I have to use TAC stamps and papers, too.

This is from the Asian Art stamp set, the the Rustic Chic paper pad. I'm embarrassed to say that I've had this stamp set for about 6 months now, and this is the first time I've used it. It won't be the last, though. I think I will try to make a point of using my previously unused TAC stamps this week, since I'm going to Chris's house on Friday.

I LOVE Asian stamps- you have done such a beautiful job with the colors and BG papers! I will go check out the link you provided- can you use retired TAC stamps??? Not sure I have any that are current.

This is just stunning! I have a "thing" for anything oriental. Just love this.

Tax Free - Sister!! :) Thanks for putting a plug for me Juliet. This card is terrific. Who would've thought that you could pair Rustic Chic and oriental?! Only you and thus proving again that Rustic Chic is the best paper out there! tee hee... See you Friday!
