Thank You Card - Hampton Art Stamps

Welcome to my very first post as part of the Hampton Art Stamps Design Team! After working "behind the scenes" for Hampton Art Stamps for the past 18 months, it's fun to step out front and be part of the company blog! {I still work behind the scenes, too!} 

I am sure you saw the fantastic box of goodies Hampton Art Stamps and Clearsnap sent me! (Click HERE for my YouTube Channel.) Here is the card I made with my new goodies!


I confess that I did not wait for my box to come before I started to make projects! Since I already had a lot of stamps and inks, plus I had this Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe paper on my desk, I got right to work!



I stamped the collage image (Hot Fudge Studio - On Butterfly Wings) with Graphic 45 Decades Triumphant Red Antiquing Ink, then placed the image behind the Graphic 45 chipboard frame.



I tied a bow with some sheer old gold ruffle edge ribbon. I found some flowers in my stash that were almost the same color as the ink, which was great as I did not have to color them myself!



The sentiment is a Hampton Art Stamp set called Celebrate and Thanks, which may be retired. I don't see it in the current catalog, at any rate. I think this came in one of my Graphic 45 DT boxes last year. I love all the different fonts in this set.


If you have not seen what Hampton Art Stamps has available, or if you only know them for their Studio G line of stamps, check out the new catalog HERE. They carry stamps from: Doodlebug Design, 7Gypsies, Graphic 45, Outlines Rubber Stamp Company, Diffusion Art Stamps, Art Warehouse, Hot Fudge Studios, Spellbinders Stamp and Die Sets, Hampton Art Signature Collection, and Ditto. There are clear, cling, and wood mount stamps! There really is something for everyone! Plus, Hampton Art Stamps carries all of the Clearsnap/Colorbox inks and paints! As a special bonus, there is quite a lot of my work featured in the catalog! You will probably recognize it from seeing it here on my blog. {wink}
