Today is an interview with one of our original Design Team members, Angel Wilde. Angel has a fun blog, Angelosity, and also a gallery at Splitcoaststampers. We are excited to share a little bit more about her with you today!
How long have you been stamping, and how did you start?
I think it was 1995 when I was invited to my first "stamp party" (Stampin' Up! workshop). I went to be polite to the hostess, but had no intention of buying postage stamps which is what I thought they were selling...LOL
I was hooked from the beginning. I've always loved sending cards. I haven't bought a card in years!
How long have you been on the ODBD DT?
Since it began... one year already!
How would you describe your "style"?
That's a hard question. I don't know. Uncomplicated maybe? What is my style?
What was the first stamp you ever bought?
Stampin' Up!'s Button Bear and I still have him!
Describe the "weirdest" stamp you have.
After looking at my stamps I guess it would have to be my Nebraska Cornhusker mascot...is it Harry or Herbie? I got him to make my dad a card... Go Big Red!
What is your favorite medium to work with?
I am not a big fan of coloring, but when I do I usually use a blender pen and the lids of my ink pads.
What is your favorite technique?
I love the simple elegance of embossing.
What is your favorite or most used tool? (Other than the basics: adhesive, scissors, etc.)
Hands down it's my Cuttlebug! I do think the paper piercing tool is underrated though... such a simple inexpensive tool, but it can add magic to your designs!
What inspires you in your stamping?
Other stampers mostly. I love looking at Splitcoast galleries and stamping blogs!
What is one of the top items on your stamping wish list?
I don't want for very much, but there are many dies and folders for my Cuttlebug I'd love to have! Then there is paper....I love paper!
What is one food you couldn't live without?
CHOCOLATE... I have to have chocolate at some point during the day!
Next is corn.. weird I know, but I LOVE corn anything....popcorn, corn on the cob, corn chips, corn nuggets....anything corn!
Is there a song title that reflects your personality? There is a song by Martina McBride that reminds me of me... mostly because of my name "Wild Angel"...LOL
Do you have any friends that understand your addiction? (Other than your stamping friends that live in the computer)
Yes, my friend Tracy I think understands.
Anything you'd like to tell about yourself or stamping that I haven't asked?
My favorite color is Soft Sky! But green seems to be a color I can't stop buying things of...ribbon, paper... Green is running over in my stamp room! Does anyone else have that problem?
I'm so happy to be a part of Our Daily Bread Designs which combines two of my loves.... Jesus and Stamping!
Thank you for sharing your art and heart with us, Angel!
