Sweet Stamps Blog Challenge #2 New Release Stamps

Sweet Stamps is excited to present new Wildlife rubber stamps by designer Jacqueline Hill.  Not only is Jackie joining us today but she will be a new member of our design team.  We are having a blog hop to showcase these wonderful new stamps.  Visit each team member's blog and collect a letter.  Once you get all the letters, unscramble them to reveal the 2 word phrase.  Then return to the Challenge blog and leave a comment with the answer.  We will be chosing one winner to receive all of the new stamps.  We will also be awarding random prizes of rubber stamps chosen from the readers who comment on each member's blog so be sure to leave some love.  If you get lost along the way, you can always return to the Challenge Blog for a list of the DT mEmbers in hop order.  Blog Hop winners will be announced on Monday, February 21st before our next challenge.  You should have arrived here from Joni's blog, if not return to the Challenge blog and start at the beginning.

I chose the PEnguins # 3006G for my easel card. They are fun and easy to color with Copics. The Penguins are stamped with Black Momento Ink on Iced Silver paper for a snowy white look! The greeting is #915C and it was stampEd with Shades Ink, Ocean Blue. The same ink was used to distress the snowflakes.  Cheery Lynn's Ice Skating Plate embossed the Star DrEam background and their Snowflakes highlighted the 'icy' look.

Next stop is  Kendra's blog. 

Please leave a comment first!

 This card was created with Water Birds #3011G.  I stamped it on White Cryogen with Rich Cocoa Momento Ink. I colored the sand and water with Copics.  The sand is stippled with Adirondack Mushroom Ink.  The sky is stippled with Adirondack Cloudy and Denim Ink.  The shells have brown glitter outlining them. I added Stardream paper for more sparkle. The dew drops enhance the water.
