LID:: January Release:: Day 1




It's the first day of the Lil' Inker Designs January Release and I'm positive you will love it! As usual, we have a fabulous hop for you featuring innovative stamps and dies! You should have arrived from Jen's Blog!


I have two projects to show you today! I started by creating a custom, patterned background with the new Quilted Swirl Stitch Pattern Die. I then trimmed a bit off the bottom before mounting it to a white card base that was stamped with a sentiment from the new Smooches Stamp Set. I finished the card with a die cut heart and the lovely, swirly and dainty new Doodled Love Word Die!



My next card features a kraft card base that has the added detail of a slanted stitch from the new Stitched Mats: Side-Stitched Rectangles. I then cut a sentiment panel with a smaller die from the Side-Stitched Rectangles set and stamped it with a sentiment from the lovely Love is All You Need Stamp Set. I finished the card with two cute banners from the new Hearts Banners Die! I colored the hearts in with markers and added a black drawn line.


Your next stop is Kristen!

Don't forget to comment along the hops, as there are three $15 gift certificates up for grabs to the Lil' Inker Designs Store!
