I’m in SUCH good company too! You NEED to see all the wonderful crafters on that list! Go! Click! (After you finish reading, of course!)

I can’t wait to get started sharing my HA creations with all of you and with all those artist and crafters I’ve yet to meet! So - I decided not to wait.

Let me explain.

I am, and have been, a long-time fan and user of Hampton Arts crafty goodness. So, when I heard about the call for designers, I had SUCH a hard time choosing what products to use for my submission! I ended up making several more projects than were required. I want to share with you today, a couple of cards that didn’t make MY final cut - for one reason or another. (And tell you a little bit about each one. : )

HA_MissingYou1

I LOVE this feather stamp! (It coordinates with Curtain Call by Graphic 45, but I love that it can be used for such a clean design too!)

HA_MotherCard

I really like to use a stamp or supply that is meant for one thing and see how it works for something else. On this card, for example, the little swirly border at the bottom is actually a small (Studio G) journaling stamp that I just stamped over and over to create that border. I am excited to use it to make a background paper now, because I really like how it came out.

HA_JustForU

You don’t know HOW torn I was between this card and the card I sent with my application! I just LOVE how this one came out. But, in the end, I loved the other one JUST a little more. (I felt like I was trying to pick my favorite CHILD! lol).

Get excited! I think you are going to have so much inspiration from this team – it will be coming out of your ears!! Thanks for stopping by!

Keep it royal people, because today, it REALLY IS good to be queen!
