Hampton Art and Authentique Blog Hop

Welcome to another great blog hop! This week Hampton Art is featuring our partner Authentique! Hampton Art partnered with Authentique to create their licensed designs into great quality stamps!

Make sure you check out the Hampton Art blog and the Authentique blog all week long! Leave comments each day for chances to win a great package of Authentique branded stamps from Hampton Art. We will pick a winner next Monday from the daily comments on the blog.

I was lucky enough to snag all three of the new sets, plus I am a HUGE fan of Authentique papers, so I have a huge stack at my disposal. I made this sweet friendship card for the hop.

I love the new Hampton Art/Authentique stamps! They are perfect to use with many of the Authentique paper collections! I used the NEW Grateful Heart stamp set (#IC0231) with Authentique Blissful papers.

I stamped the decorative sentiment onto cream paper with Chestnut Roan chalk ink and colored parts of it with Copic alcohol markers. I then "fussy cut" the image to show the unique shape of the stamp.

I used three-dimensional tape to give the banner and the sentiment dimension.

I used a few other stamps from the set to decorate the inside of the card.

Enjoy the hop this week!
