Lil' Inker Designs + 2 Cute Ink Release Week {Day 1}

Welcome to Day 1 of Lil' Inker Designs' December Release featuring a collaborative new line of stamps with 2 Cute Ink! Artist Heidi Schwoerer, formerly of 2 Cute Rubber Stamps, will now exclusively release her stamps with Lil' Inker. All stamp sets will be released in clear stamp format and feature sentiments in a fun font designed by Laura and Ariana of Lil' Inker Designs with ag designs! If you've come from Laura's blog, you are on the right track. Now how 'bout a card using the first featured set, Arctic Friends?

Yes, you're still at my blog! LOL Even I couldn't believe what resulted since this card features a lot more layers and papers than I normally use. Sometimes the stamps just inspire and I like to run with it, you know? ;) Of course, I had to colour and fussy cut the penguin and polar bear. Aren't they cute?! I liked the idea of them dripping different flavours of ice cream all over. I made a monochromatic background using some patterned paper and glittery trees die cut with the Holly Jolly dies released last month.

Check out all the versatile sentiments that are included with these two cuties! Just click on the image to purchase. ;)

Thank you for stopping by today! Be sure you hop along all week for a chance to win all three of the new winter-themed stamp sets or one of two $10 gift certificates to the Lil' Inker Store! For Day 2 of this release and to see more projects using Arctic Friends, please start at Laura's blog tomorrow at 12:01 a.m. EST. I'll be posting for Lil' Inker again on Wednesday for Day 3 and the next adorable stamp set in this series!

Your next stop today is the amazing Jen del Muro!
