Hey, there, stamp fans! Welcome to the Hampton Art Blog!
My card today features a beautiful rubber stamp - Hello Little One (PS0835) from the 2015 CHA show; I really love it! (Isn't it sweet?)

Hello Little One
There's no reason you can't do a little "redesign" of a stamp if your spacing needs won't accommodate the image exactly as it is. When I first tried to put my owls on my die-cut circle, the heart over the mama's head felt crowded. So I just cut it out and moved it over to the side where there was more room. (Works for me!)
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
