Hi Ladies. I would like to start this post by saying that it has been an ABSOLUTE HONOR to have had so many talented crafters enter the 1st Ever Inky Impressions Design Team Call. I can not even put into words how hard it was to choose just some of you. You are all so gifted! This was so much harder than I ever thought it would be! I have had 2 sleepless nights agonizing over the final decision of who to choose. I don't like having to choose, AT ALL!

I would like to thank all of you for your amazing efforts. You ALL have such beautiful work! I have to be honest in saying that if it were not for a few of my Wonderful Friends I may still be sitting here pondering! They repeatedly reminded me of keeping it to a minimum. (What's that) LOL After hours upon hours of going through things I have FINALLY narrowed it down... to 17 ladies! LOL Okay, so you think I'm crazy! I just could not do it. I know that 17 is alot, but... My Goodness, the talent that applied for our Design Team was just AMAZING! It was so hard to even narrow it down to this amount! Okay so here are the names of the final seventeen...

2.)Cassie Larson
4.)Chris Sather
5.)Christine Ousley
6.)Heather Schlatter
7.)Holly Young
8.)Kristen Catalano
9.)Kristine Breach
11.)Michelle Roos
14.)Simonne (Sem See)
17.)Tonya Hopkins

For those of you who's names are not on the list... Please know that I wholeheartedly appreciate your time & support. Please understand how VERY hard this was to do! We will be having another DT call in just a few more months and will also be having monthly guest designers. We are so excited for the release and can't wait to show you all of the new stamp designs!!! Please email me at if you have any questions at all! Thanks again ladies & Happy Stamping!!! BIG HUGS! Nicole :)
