LID:: December 2015 Release:: Day 1



It's the first day of the Lil' Inker Designs December Release and we have so many follow-ups to your favorites to showcase during this release! 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 Maureen Merritt's Blog!

I'm showcasing so many new products with a few cards today. The first is the stamp set called Inky Flowers. So beautiful, so versatile! For the above card, I stamped many flowers in white on kraft cardstock and colored a few in with colored pencils. I then die cut the beautiful corresponding sentiment with the With Gratitude Greeting Die in white cardstock. I finished the card with May Arts Burlap.



This next card also features Inky Flowers. I first stamped some of the flowers and then outlined them with marker. I then added a background for my focal point using a mask made out of the fun Dual Dotted Oval Dies. I outlined the dots and the oval with black marker for a bit of extra pop. I finished the card with a die cut sentiment from the corresponding With Sympathy Greeting Die.




I made this card by embossing (instead of die cutting) the new Diamond Lace Cover Up Die onto blue cardstock. I then added a die cut white sentiment from the With Sympathy Greeting Die and an additional word from Inky Flowers Stamp Set. I finished the card with a stamped and die cut flower from Lil' Inker's Sketched Floral Stamp Set and corresponding Sketched Floral Die Cut.



I have one last card to feature! Here I stamped and colors some flowers from the Inky Flowers Stamp Set onto a white die cut circle from the new Dual Dotted Circles Dies. I then added a stamped sentiment from the Inky Flowers Stamp Set and then adhered this to a card base that has been covered with Lil' Inkers Dip Dyed Ombre Papers. I finished the card with a bow made from May Arts Silk Ribbon.


Your next stop is Lea Lawson!
