My first project as Hampton Art Design Team member. I am using the Happy Birthday Set from Hampton Art Signature Collection. Every image and every sentiment in this set makes me happy!

I like how it has both solids and outlines.

Studio G ink pads are great for collecting multiple ink colors all at once! I would like to share how I keep track of my ink colors - using a stamp image with both solids and fine lines (the cake from Happy Birthday is perfect!) onto a strip of scrap and number them. I like how easy the reference cards are to take with when going to a craft store to find some matching papers! Quick and easy!
