Introducing Arctic Friends!

Hello and good morning friends!

It's release week at Fresh Squeezed Stamps and today I get to introduce you to a darling new set called Arctic Friends.  Arctic Friends is a builder set where you can create your own chilly chums including a penguin, polar bear and walrus.

For my card, I decided to focus on the walrus and the accompanying sentiment. (I just love a good pun!)

I stamped and masked and masked and stamped the walrus again and again on a piece of white cardstock. The walrus/polar bear body was very simple to cut out and I made 3 masks from post it notes to create this group scene.  Once the stamping was complete, I outlined the walruses with a pale gray Copic Marker and added a pale blue shadow below the front line.

Next I stamped the sentiment, mounted the stamped panel on a piece of red cardstock and added some red and white baker's twine.  I adhere the matted panel onto a piece of aqua cardstock.

I love this design for a group card and will likely be using this for my daughters' teachers this holiday season. See that guy in the back row- there's one in every group, right?  I was thinking it would be super cute if each kid in a class decorated their own walrus for their teacher's card?  Hmmmm....

Be sure to stop by the Fresh Squeezed Stamps blog to check out the rest of the design team's creations! This set will be available for purchase on Thursday morning!  I will be back tomorrow with a sneak peak of another new Fresh Squeezed Stamps set.
