Our InKredible new Amber Ink (Th)Ink tank! You probably saw a flash of light and wondered what it could possibly be! Not a contrail, not a U.F.O.? No doubt it was the new torchbearers then, catching the hand-off in mid air, and already running with all their might!

Join with us in cheering them along!

Stacie Gorse runs a blog called “Hestia’s Helper” and for those of you who may not be up to snuff on your Greek Mythology, “Hestia” is the virgin goddess of domesticity.(obviously :-)
With one husband, two kids, two cats and two dogs, Stacie may not exactly be the virgin goddess, but just look at her blog and you will see that she definitely has the goddess of a certain North Carolina sanctuary part down pat. When she’s not busy tending to her hearth, she runs her own building services company and builds farms on facebook. No doubt Stacie will be able to teach us a thing or two about keeping a fire burning. We are feeling so toasty about Stacie's running with the Amber Ink flame!


Julie Elak is a card making, cake decorating, puppy training, (we would say logical also, but with a Westie on board we wonder *lol* ) systems analyst who hails from Connecticut. With all of these extra curricular activities plus one husband, three children, Bolt (the Westie) four fish and one frog her specialty MUST be organization and implementation!
Julie still finds time to read and her favorite place to hang out is in a chair in her son’s room where they read books together. Okay, hearts' officially melted. Sounds like the perfect presentation to us! We are so thrilled that Julie can not only run a computer, but a torch as well! Please... let's all try to keep up with this Last Minute Crafter!

With over 500 images posted on SCS , an Etsy Store, too many past and current Design Team positions to even mention in this small space - let it be known that the stamping world should be ecstatic that Kerri Michaud did not pursue her first dream of becoming a Veterinarian! While her Yorkie, Hannah benefits from this first love, her three children and husband of ten years, Barry, benefit from Kerri's being a retired R.N. and a stay-at-home mom. Kerri is a self proclaimed reality TV junky and once you see her blog there will be no question that she and Project Runway's Mondo have a pretty bright and cheerful color palette in common! See Kerri's perfect presentations and perfect posts @

There is a certain aura around Ms. Julia Dunnit that exudes light. For anyone that peeks at her desk on a weekly basis there is an oft chance that you may sometimes catch a few bits and bobs, and perhaps sometimes they may even seem out of place, but always, always there is a glow. Could it possibly be from the out-of-this-world windows that Mr. Dunnit (of 25.8 years no less) created for her? Could it possibly be from the energy of a certain sweet 17 year old Miss Dunnit who lives on the premises? Could it possibly be from the consumption of that coffee, gin and tonic, or gin and tonic, coffee, depending on the time of day? Alas, we think it is all of the above but mostly it is from the magic of a gifted Brit (who will not use Pritt) named Mrs. Julia Dunnit. Once you plant your feet on her stamping ground, we guarantee you will never want to pick them up again!


Angela Hathikhanavala loves Detroit, Roller Derby (she trains with Nancy RayGun) Indie music, her hilarious hubs and her two girl cats, Marty and Dexter. Is it any surprise that her college students (she teaches writing and literature full-time) rate her as hott, with two t's? This quirky daddy's girl started stamping and scrapping nearly a decade ago when she decided to make her own wedding invitations. If she's not doing ALL of the above, she may be cooking or eating pie and maybe a homegrown heirloom tomato or two, but NEVER meat!
Angela had us at "hello" and we are so excited to see her voice as a torchbearer for Amber Ink! You'll be amazed at what you'll find in Angela's paper cupboard!

Haha! I know, didn't Pam (inkredimombo) do an INK-redible job documenting these new babes!? They're already kicking up a cloud of dust on their way into that bright horizon!
