LID:: March 2016 Release:: Day 3


Welcome back to the third and last day of the Lil' Inker Designs March Release! As usual, we have a fabulous hop for you featuring innovative stamps and dies! You should have arrived from The Lil' Inker Designs Store Blog!

I've got some non-card projects for you today! My first project features the the really versatile and awesome Dual Stitched Easter Egg & Easter Greeting Die Set. To make the tag, I sponged a variety of distress inks onto white cardstock and then spritzed lightly with water. It truly looks like a hand-dyed egg! I die cut the greeting in black cardstock and adhered to the egg. I punched a hole in the top of the egg and tied the tag onto a filled Clear Pillow Box (now available at Lil' Inker Designs, and in kraft too!) with May Arts Black Burlap String.



I have a series of two tags next using the Egg & Flower Greeting Stamp Set! I wanted to showcase this lovely set used beyond the egg shape, and beyond the Easter/Spring Holiday, because they really are versatile! For the candle tag above, I stamped in gold a bottom half of an egg onto a white circle and then the greeting in black above. I adhered it to the candle with a mini clothespin, added some mini pinecones and a one-loop bow from May Arts 1/4" Black Grosgrain Ribbon to complete the look.


For this next project, I made some muffin toppers! Truly, I had more than one made, but, umm, I ran out of muffins. My boys really, really like these pumpkin muffins and I wasn't quick enough to claim but one for today's project. I used the same idea as above, this time stamping a top part of the egg from the Egg & Flower Greeting Stamp Set onto a white, cardstock circle. I then stamped a sentiment, and selectively colored bits with an orange marker. I adhered the circle to a toothpick onto the back of the circle with some orange washi tape. The end result is a quick and pretty muffin topper!


I really hope you enjoyed this release as much as I did, all products are available at Lil' Inker Designs Store and are ready for you to grab up and create magic with.

Your next stop is Chrissy Larson!
