Inky Impressions 1st Ever Design Team Announcement for STAGE ONE

Okay ladies, I have to be perfectly honest in saying that I never imagined that we would have this many Design Team applicants. We are so happy that you all love our images so far! This is truly an honor and such a DREAM COME TRUE!!! This was one of the hardest decisions that I have ever made in my life! NO JOKE! The beautiful cards that we have seen from all of you are just beyond INCREDIBLE! I mean that with all of my heart.

I also wanted to let you know that we have tried our best to narrow it down to 12 ladies and I have to be honest in saying..... What was I thinking??? HOW IN THE WORLD can I only pick 12 of you out of 122 applicants? LOL Every last one of you are so very talented. So, what we have decided to do is just pick more. If your name is not on the list, please keep in mind that this was a very hard choice. This is why I opted to have a few of my fellow stampers help me pick. (Thanks ladies) Also, if your name is not on the list, Please keep in mind that we will be featuring a Guest designer EVERY MONTH....so many spots will be available for that as well.

Please see image above post---- As a "Special Thanks" to all of of my Design Team applicants, followers and bloggers in general.....I have added a special treat for you all! We were planning to use this image that we had purchased exclusive rights to (for stamp making) back in October for our line, however......for many reasons, we have decided against adding her. (Our direction has changed for the most part & we would like to stick to a certain style.) Please feel free to download her into your files as a special Thank You gift from me. Just right click on the image, hit copy, then paste her into your pics, print her out and go to town. Thank You all so very much for your support. I hope you enjoy the FREE image. HUGS! Nicole :)

  2. Congratulations girls!!! That is so awesome that you had such a great turnout Nicole! I love how you went from 12 to 26 - HAHA! It doubled and then added 2 more for good luck. ;) You picked an incredible first round of semi- finalists, I am familiar with a lot of their work and recognize some of those names.
