LID:: July 2015 Release:: Day 2


Welcome back to the second day of the Lil' Inker Designs July Release! As usual, we have a fabulous hop for you featuring innovative stamps and dies! You should have arrived from Sarah Jay's Blog!

My first card features the really cool, really easy to use, and really versatile Quilted Flowers Dies as well a beautiful stamp set, Greetings And Salutations. I helped make these dies happen, with Laura's amazing idea. They sure were a labor of love, and I couldn't be more proud of them. They are so cool, and so, so, so versatile. I used the middle die from Quilted Flowers only, both the positive and negative parts. I adhered these to the card after inking the flower and leaves, and added a sentiment from Greetings And Salutations.



My second card features the Quilted Flowers Dies as well, this time I die cut the middle piece again and then added the stitching by placing the die cut piece over the stitched die and running it through the die cutting machine one more time. So easy and quick-but look at the cute stitched detail! Before adhering to the card base, I prayed each flower with shimmer spray for a lovely, subtle look. I finished the card with a shimmer stitched strip made from Stitched Mats: Long and Skinny Rectangles Set and a shimmery, large die cut sentiment from the Thanks Word Die. I really, truly love the possibilities of the Quilted Flower Die and I hope you do too!

Your next stop today is the Lil' Inker Designs Store!! Stock up on your favorite new releases.
