LID:: December Release Day 1



With two growing boys in the house, I often times find myself reading between the lines, trying to figure out the true meaning of their stories...Today is the first day of the December Release for Lil' Inker Designs and yet again, there is a fantastic line-up of products being released! If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from Jen's Blog, although the complete line-up and details can be found at the Lil' Inkers Design Blog.






The first product I'm showcasing is this hilarious set designed by Laura. It is called The Fine Print. I stamped two of the sentiments onto a skinny cardstock base, stamped the magnifying glass, added a punched heart and some glossy accents.


My next card features two new products! I went for a bold, graphic and FUN look for this card.



I started by die-cutting with pink cardstock a panel with the Cover Up Die: Stitches & Stripes and before adhering it to the bright orange card base, I glued yellow cardstock under the pink panel in selective areas. This was so easy and simple to do, and I can only imagine the fun color combinations and designs one can come up with! To finish the card, I stamped two sentiments from the Shiny Happy Sentiments Stamp set, designed by Laura, onto a handcut banner and ahdered it to the card with dimensional adhesive.

I hope you enjoy hopping through to the Lil' Inker Designs Design Team Blogs. Remember to leave comments, for a random winner will be chosen to win a gift certificate! Your next stop is Sarah!
