Hop Day 5: Introducing Cocoa Bear!

Well, it's the final day of our hop today but it's the one I've been looking forward to the most!

If you've been hopping along with us this week you've seen that we've collaborated with artist Heidi Schwoerer of 2 Cute Ink. Heidi is going to release her designs exclusiely here at Lil' Inker and Ariana and I are designing the sentiments to coordinate with these fabby lil' images!

Today we're releasing Cocoa Bear and I love him, squeeee!!!!!

What I think is so fun about this set is that his mug is actually blank when you stamp the entire image and Ariana and I decided to include this little snowman and little snowflake desiged by Heidi as individual stamps to decorate his mug or even incorporate into the background scene!

Here's what I did with Cocoa Bear...

Love him? I do!

You could be one of our lucky prize winners to receive one of 2 store credits or our grand prize...all three images from the December release! All you have to do is leave comments for all of our designers throughout this week's hop.

Speaking of designers, let's get onto the hop. Today our entire team is posting with their Cocoa Bear designs and Amy Kolling is up next! Head on over to see what crafty goodness she's got for us today!

All three of our images are now available in the LID store. Head on over to check them out. There is still plenty of time to receive these images in time for the holidays. I happen to think that our new images will make fabulous stocking stuffers!

I hope you enjoyed the hop this week and are excited about our new line from 2 Cute Ink!

Thanks for stopping by!

December New Release Hop Day 2!

Good morning! Did you enjoy yesterday's projects featuring our brand new set Arctic Friends? I'm so excited to finally be able to reveal the new sets from our first collaborative line, 2 Cute Ink.

Heidi Schwoerer is the artist of the 2 Cute Ink images. Her style is incredibly adorable and her existing images are already very popular among the paper crafting community under her former line 2 Cute Rubber Stamps. Wanting to really focus on her art and creativty, Heidi decided that Lil' Inker would be the perfect outlet to bring more and more new images to her existing fans and make new fans! We AGREE!

In case you missed it, the Arctic Friends set (seen above) is the first set we're releasing here at Lil' Inker and with these adorable sentiments designed by myself and Ariana. I just love this image of these cutey friends sharing a treat and I love the versatility this image has when used with our fun sentiments.

One of my favorite things about new release week is PRIZES! This month we have a Grand Prize up for grabs.... our entire Winter collection of all three 2 Cute Ink sets being released this week. In order to be eligible to win our grand prize, we ask that you leave comments all throughout the week for our designers. We're also giving away 2 $10 store credits to lucky commenters as well!

We'd also love for you to head on over to the 2 Cute Ink Facebook page and we'd love it if you'd *like* it!

To see what fabulosity our designers have created for you today, head on over to Debby Hughes's blog!

Don't forget Arctic Friends is available today and you can pick up your copy by visiting the Lil' Inker Designs Store.

Thanks for stopping by!
