LID:: January 2016 Release:: Day 1



It's the first day of the Lil' Inker Designs January Release!

(There was a wee bit of a mix-up so this is the second time posting, if you commented yesterday, PLEASE comment again today for your chance to win! Sorry for the confusion!!)

If 2016 starts out with these amazing products, I KNOW it is a going to be a great year. As usual, I love the new products, and I am pretty sure that you will too. Once again, we have a fabulous hop for you featuring innovative stamps and dies! You should have arrived from the Lil' Inker's Design Blog!

I'll start with my favorite card I made during this release. It was so simple to put together, and (I think, but I might be biased) that it is so cute! I first embossed a kraft card base with the previously released Cover Up Die: Stitched Woodgrain (see that heart right above the bear? Love!) and then die cut the word "Hugs" from the new Valentine Word Tags Dies from the new, beautiful Love You Paper Pack. I simply trimmed off the tag. To finish the card, I die cut the cutest ever little bear from the new Lovie Friends Stamp Set and coordinating Lovie Friends Die Set, adhered him to the card, colored the heart and applied glossy accents for some shine to match the paper, as it is made from the Ultrasmooth Premium Cardstock and so beautiful.



This next card also features the Lovie Friends Stamp Set and coordinating Lovie Friends Die Set, as well as the Valentine Word Tags Dies and Love You Paper Pack.


I stamped, colored and die cut the lion from the Lovie Friends Stamp Set and Lovie Friends Die Set and adhered him to a peach cardstock base. I then die cut the word Love from the Love You Paper Pack with the Valentine Word Tags Dies and once again cut off the little tag. I finished the card with a some words from the previously released Sending You Stamp Set to finish my sentence. I like how this card features the Lil' Inker Designs Valentine's Day products but is not for Valentine's Day!


Your next stop is Heather Hoffman!

  30. We had a "great minds" moment! I love that we both did the bear over the hugs word tag and yet had such different outcomes. I love that you used the Stitched Woodgrain in the background. Super super sweet cards for this release, karen. Thank you so much for everything!
