LID:: October 2015 Release:: Day 1



It's the first day of the Lil' Inker Designs October Release and the new products make me so giddy! I love the new products, and I am pretty sure that you will too. As usual, we have a fabulous hop for you featuring innovative stamps and dies! You should have arrived from Chrissy Larson's Blog!

I have two projects to show you today! My first card features the new Leaf Love Dies and coordinating Leafy Greetings Stamp Set, as well as a release from last month, the Wrappers Delight: Lattice Die. I really wanted to bring out the fall, rustic theme on this card. I went with a kraft card base and die cut a few leaves in fall colors. I adhered the leaves over the top of a die cut the Wrappers Delight: Lattice Die. For the sentiment, I stamped a beautiful greeting from the Leafy Greetings Stamp Set onto the top leaf and curled all of the edges. I finished the card with some Line and Gold Burlap String from May Arts. I adore the texture and the subtle hues on the card, perfect for fall.



 

My next card features the revised Nuts About You Stamp Set and Acorn Dies! I created a clean and simple, punny birthday card by adhering a kraft tag (from the Anytime Tags 2 Die Set) tied with May Arts Silk Ribbon to a white card base. I then stamped a sentiment from Nuts About You Stamp Set and finished with the three different sized acorns you can get from the Acorn Dies. I added a bit of texture to their caps with the Quilted Stitched Pattern Die.



Your next stop is Lisa Henke!
