It's Team Tuesday again, and we are happy to be introducing you to Ceal Pritchett. If you've ever met Ceal in person, you know her sweet southern drawl is beyond charming, and if you haven't met her - you need to! Ceal is a Stampin' Up! demonstrator as well as an experienced design team member. Her colorful and airy style and her kind heart are why she is on our team. Here she is in her own words.
My name is Ceal Pritchett and currently reside in the Smoky mountains of western NC, I say currently because my husband's company likes to move us around. My very supportive husband and I are empty-nesters, except for our fur baby Willis, a Shih Tzu who is more spoiled than the children were. We share 3 children and one gorgeous perfect granddaughter and a grandson on the way.
I have been crafting since childhood, crafts was always my favorite at church or school. My mom always told me as a child I would rather color on a rainy day when we couldn't go outside to play than watch TV, the same hold true today, I love to color and craft.
My style is clean and simple and you can find me and my work on my blog Simply Beautiful or over on Instagram as Cealp.
I am so blessed to be part of this amazing team that represents the most amazing stamping tool ever invented. The MISTI has truly changed the way I stamp and how much I stamp. How did I ever stamp without it??
Hey Ya'll !
I am so blessed to be a part of Team Misti, this tool totally changed my relationship with stamps. It has also saved me lots of frustration. I would finish my card and go to add the greeting and stamp it crooked or not dark enough and I don't know about you but clear stamps or not, I could not line it up to over stamp it to make it darker.
I love my Misti! If I were told I that I could only keep one crafting tool, it definitely would be the Misti, no question about it.
Before the Misti was invented I had also quit buying layering stamps because I just could not get them to work for me, the Stamp-a-jig was my worst enemy, no matter how much I tried it just didn't work. Now I can buy all these gorgeous layering stamps like the one I used on my card from Concord & 9th.
To make my card I used the Original MISTI and the new Creative Corners, these were released at Creativation this year and they are amazing! They allow you to stamp off of your panel at any angle.
Using cold press watercolor paper I randomly stamped the butterfly and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder.
Next I stamped the butterfly on repositionable labels and cut them out to mask off the embossed images and and stamped "Happy Birthday" across the panel using Brustus Monroe Raven Ink. The Creative Corners also allowed me to move the panel where I needed to continue to stamp across.
The next step was to remove the masks and watercolor the butterflies using Zig real brush clean color pens.
