Inky Impressions Stamps: Snow Much Fun Blog Hop

Welcome to the Inky Impressions blog hop!! We have some new digital releases to show off.....yes that's right, digital stamps :) Of course there will be some rubber too for you rubber lovers but today we are showing off the new digis.

The blog hop will run today and tomorrow (November 1st and 2nd) and one lucky winner will win a $25 gift certificate to spend in the Inky Impressions Store!

Today I am showing you Marisa's Sleigh Ride, and I have decorated an ice cream tub and filled it with candy.


This is also one of my dt projects for By The Cute and Girly where the challenge this month is "Christmas Girls".
 I used some MME Christmas papers, some ribbons from my stash, a few snowflakes cut with Marianne Design dies and a Woodware punch, some tiny sticky back gems and of course the sweet Inky image which is coloured with Promarkers.

Both sides are the same except I used a small snowflake for this side and a larger one for the other side, and I covered all the white snowflakes with stickles as well as the pom poms on Marisa's hat.

And finally a close up of the little cutie. I must point out that the lines on my image (especially on the eyes) are not a defect in the actual image, it was my stupid printer....or should I say the stupid ink that I used.
I normally buy genuine Epson ink but I ran out and couldn't get any close by (I needed it that say or else I would of ordered online), so I bought some compatible ink from Asda (their own brand). It was only the magenta one that I had to replace, the others are all genuine Epson, but the print quality is rubbish :( Now I remember why I never buy compatible inks!!

Anyway, enough of my moaning! Here's the hop order in case you loose your way.



Thanks for stopping by.
I will be back shortly with another post for Digital Tuesday and also a guest design spot card.
