Another introduction for the 100 Proof Press Design Team

The next member of the team I am going to introduce is Gerri Herbst.  Gerri's work is has a touch of nostalgia,  hint of romantic vintage, lots of sparkle, and limitless creativity.  I'm very happy that Gerri is a part of the team and I'm excited to see what stories she tells with 100 Proof Press images.  You should stop by her blog to find what creative treasure  Gerri has created today.  Here is her first piece as a part of the Design Team.

Gerri used the "long tower row" stamp.  Isn't is wonderful how she made a 3-d piece, used buttons, and watercolors to create this piece.  I hear cityscapes are on the rise...

Presenting the next member of our Design Team. . .

The next artist I need to introduce is Tracy Evans.  I have been inspired by her work from The Stamper's Sampler, and I am very excited to have her artistic talent combined with 100 Proof Press images.    I am sure you're going to want to visit her blog to see other stamp-art that Tracy has created.   Here is her first piece for our design team.  I think she had this card in the works before she even received the rubber!
Grow Where you Are Planted
In this piece, Tracy has used only one image to create a layered affect.  The card is beautifully completed with embellishments to add even more dimension.  She also made a co-ordinating gift bag to go with the card.  I can't wait to see share what Tracy stamps up next.

It's time I introduce one of the members of the first ever 100 Proof Press Design Team.

We got the big, I mean big, order out the door.  It was crazy stamp-making time around 100 Proof Press the past 12 days.  But now we're back to our "regular" way of life.  And I have been wanting to do this post for about week - I am so excited to introduce  the first member of 100 Proof Press's design team! Many of you are familiar with her energetic work, and she might even be how you found our blog. . . Now presenting, Jennifer Ingle and her Thimble Fairy!
Tiny Thimble Fairy by Jennifer Ingle
Jennifer showed some creativity and imagination when she came up with this cutie.  She used image #1931, the waving doll.  If you would like more details about the creation of this little fairy, visit Jennifer's blog, Just Jingle.  I look forward to sharing more of Jennifer's projects with you & introducing the other four members of the Design Team.

The 100 Proof Press Poppy Diagram Stamp

There were nine beautiful entries for the poppy stamp design contest, and I am so glad it went to a vote because it would have been way too difficult for me to choose a winner by myself.  The winner of the  design contest is Kristy Small of Sinister Soaps.  She stamped the poppy stamp in black on a white label and used it on her Black Opium Tea Soap.   I thank everyone who participated, in creating art with the stamp, as well as those to who voted.  It made the first design contest a success!
