Here is a sneak peek of this weeks New Release Digital Stamp! I had fun inking this design for I tried a new inking technique using the pencil tool and the brush tool in Adobe Ideas! Can you guess what it is? If you are the first to get it right you will get this digital stamp FREE on FRIDAY! :)
I am super excited to share my colored "Sweet Ladybug" image! I think this ladybug would look cute on a t-shirt, card and even napkins, What do you think? I am still working on my new coloring style, I started to add some yellows for some warmth but it just didn't look good. So I took them out and decided it looked good just like this! I am also ready to start a "New Project" and I think it woul
I am really loving my new line art "Sweet Ladybug" that I released today in my 2 Cute Ink Digi shop and Etsy shop as a digital stamp. I am always trying to think of fun and different ideas and all of a sudden I had the idea of "why not have a cute ladybug holding a chocolate covered strawberry"? So that is what I did. I really would like to make a series of images using this ladybug character and jotted a few ideas down. Let me know what you think of this design and if you have any suggestions on what else this ladybug could be doing. Make sure to stop back here tomorrow to see how I colored this Sweet Ladybug in adobe ideas!

I am excited that Lil Inkers has just released my super cute design "Bunny Star" as a Mini Clear Stamp Set! I love that Laura decided to do this as mini set because it makes that Bunny that much cuter!
He is perfect for a birthday card, teacher card and so much more! Get Bunny Star Clear Stamp set in the Lil Inkers Shop!
So I was contacted this past weekend by a Magazine Company and they want to feature my "Cute Turkey Digital Stamp" in one of their issues! I was super excited because this will be the first time 2 Cute Ink digital stamps will be featured in a Magazine! So they are needing a sample card made with instructions/tutorial and I thought how fun it would be to give everyone a shot!
I need all cards and instructions emailed to me by January 29th and if your submission gets pick we will need to mail the actual card and instructions to the magazine! How cool would it be to see your card featured in a magazine right?
All you need to do is make sure that it is an autumn/fall theme card you are making and you are all set. Please don't post this card on your blog or to challenges just incase yours gets picked, we want to have it revealed in the magazine! If you have made a cute card with this digital already, just make it similar to the card you have done or add a new twist! Remember all card samples and instructions need to be emailed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 29th!
You can purchase the "Cute Turkey Digital Stamp" in my 2 Cute Ink Digi Shop if you don't already have it and start creating! :)
So I started out sketching this dog referring from a friends dog picture on Facebook. I had trouble trying to make the doggie hair look curly so I changed his hair to be more scruffy and I loved how it turned out! I also went a little bold and after I did the initial sketchy sketch you see in the light grey colors I put my stylus down and decided to do some finger drawing! I turned my opacity up on the red so it was more vibrant and just started drawing away with my finger! It is very relaxing when drawing on the ipad and even more relaxing to just use you
New 2 Cute Ink Artwork Panda Love!
I created these cute panda's as a 2 cute ink digital stamp and thought I should give my digital coloring a try in adobe ideas. There is not too much to color since the panda's are black but I think the pink heart makes the panda couple pop! I am thinking about starting a zazzle shop and this art being my first piece, what do you think? What would these panda's look cute on? Oh and don't forget this Panda love couple is available as a digital stamp in my 2 Cute Ink Digi Shop and Etsy Shop!
Going to Get Back to Using Etsy for Digital Stamps and Look Through Some Books I Bought a While Back
So as you know I have added some of my digital stamps back to my Etsy shop and they are now INSTANT downloads thanks to Crafthub.me. You pay a small monthly fee and you no longer have to send out emails to customers it is done automatically with a downloadable link. I will stil have my own digital stamp store up at www.shop.2cuteink.com but I do find it hard to drive traffic to the site. So I was thinking maybe I should get back into promoting and re-listing with etsy and see what kind of traffic I can get. I actually have made a few sales this last week and I have done nothing. I remember I bought a couple books awhile back one specifically fro selling on Etsy by Timothy Adam and then a general handmade marketplace book by Kari Chapin and I am going to re visit them along with looking into what all you can do now to promote and drive traffic to my Etsy Shop. :). Here is my Etsy Shop link http://www.etsy.com/shop/2CuteInk Do you do anything specific that helps drive traffic to your etsy shop?
Loving Squirrel Sketch
So This year I am trying to sketch more! I am taking ideas and requests on my facebook page everyday and then writing them in my notebook. Then when it is sketch time I am choosing and idea from that list! Today I picked the idea of drawing a squirrel holing a nut with a ribbon around it. I really like the sketch though I am not so sure it looks like a squirrel lol. Maybe I should add some teeth? What do you think?
to 2 Cute Ink! Where I share my digi's, doodles, crafts and more!
I hope to inspire you with my arts and crafts!
