Fresh Squeezed Stamps - Wintery Birthday Wishes

Good morning!  I'm up on the Fresh Squeezed Stamps Blog today and would love for you to stop by and say "Brrrrrr, baby it's cold!"  That's right!  It IS arctic blast recently made its way through the states and boy, oh boy...thank heaven for electric blankets!

To embrace the new change in temperature, I couldn't help but grab the new Fresh Squeezed Stamps set, Arctic Friends, and paired it up a sentiment and flower from the Everyday Expressions set.  My dear daughter, Hannah, has a birthday party to attend and she loves this wintery walrus with a little bloom on her head!  If you haven't picked up the Arctic Friends stamp set, you are missing out on the most adorable animal builder set around!  

I was inspired by the Retro Sketches #93 and Dynamic Duos #82 to create this wintery bliss!

I inked up Miss Walrus in Black Soot, then shaded her a bit with Copics.  After fussy cutting her out, I placed her over a couple of fun circle shapes and embellished with twine and sequins!

You can find Fresh Squeezed Stamps at the i {heart} papers store, too, along with Hemptique White Hemp Cord, Ranger Distress Inks, Copic Markers, and Crate Paper!

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
