LID:: March 2016 Release:: Day 1


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

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 Sarah Jay's Blog! I have quite a few cards to showcase today, because there are that many amazing products being released!

This first one features the lovely, new Stitched Easter Basket Die Set. I die cut the basket from cream colored cardstock, first inking the actual die up with Vintage Photo Ink. I then spritzed the die cut with water, so the ink that was impressed into the paper with the dies became softer. I filled the basket with custom inked and die cut eggs, added "grass" from made from green cardstock die cut from a previously released product, Fanfare Scalloped Border Die. I finished the card with two die cut and glued layers from the beautiful Dual Stitched Egg & Easter Greeting Die Set.



This next card features some simply beautiful, new stamps and dies, Fresh Cut Flowers.


I started by die cutting the entire set dies from Fresh Cut Flowers Die Set from pale green cardstock. I then stamped each of these with various shades of green, and some blue from the Fresh Cut Flowers Stamp Set. I adhered them onto a white cardbase and finished the card with a die cut sentiment from the With Sympathy Word Die. These flowers were so very easy to stamp and arrange, and in any combination it will come out beautifully.




And one final card for today!


This Easter card came together so quickly and would be perfect for mass producing. I adhered a panel of one of the pretty patterns from the new Easter Greetings Paper Pack that was die cut with the second largest rectangle from Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Mats: Rectangles onto a yellow cardstock panel, first tying a bow made from May Arts Pink Wrinkle Ribbon. I tucked a beautiful scallop underneath the bow (made from the Fanfare Scalloped Border Die). I finished the card with a white bunny die cut from the previously released Bunnies and Bows Die Set, and added a sentiment with the new Easter Hodge Podge Stamp Set.


Gah! I so very much LOVE everything in this new release, and how well they work with previously released products. Makes card making so easy!

Your next stop is Amy Kolling!
