*Exciting news!* I'm a Guest Designer!

Hi everyone!

I'm super excited to finally share this wonderful bit of news ~
I'm absolutely delighted to have been asked 
to Guest Designer for Dare2B Artsy stamps for the month of March :)
For the next couple of weeks, I'll be showcasing several stamp sets
on various cards and styles ~ like this one today!

I know most of you had a little bit of warmer weather - 
and now this weekend a little more snow!
Even in March, there is snow much fun to be had ♥

One of the stamp sets I chose to work with is Penguin Fun!
For my playful arctic penguin scene,
 I stamped out 2 of the penguins, the sled, and the christmas tree.
The images are stamped in Dare2BArtsy's Premium black ink ...
so crisp and clean!
I use prismacolor markers - which are alcohol based - 
 and look at how wonderful it colored and blended!

While I hand cut these images for today's card,
 this Penguin Fun stamp set does have a matching die set, too.
 I added a few layers of dsp for snow banks and background,
a few enamel dots and propped up the penguins with 3d foam tape.

                              Here is my arctic Penguin Fun card:

 For the inside of my card,
I left the image uncolored and added another sentiment from the set.
A few more enamel dots 
and this penguin's winter fun card is finished :)

To find this stamp set, dies, stamps, inks, and more
please visit Dare 2 B Artsy's store,
as well as the inspiration blog
to see all the super cute cards and ideas

Here's a quick peek at them

Thanks for stopping by today!
I'll have more cards for you to see coming up later this week :)
Big hugs, bigger blessings!
