LID July 2016 Release:: Day 1 (+ Giveaway!)


It really doesn't surprise me that Lil' Inker Designs just released some awesome and unique new products, I adore this company, the owner and their products. Today is the first of three days of the Lil' Inker Designs July 2016 Release Showcase!


Once again, we have a fabulous hop for you featuring innovative stamps and dies! If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from the ever so talented
Amy Kolling's Blog! 

My first project features the seriously pretty and versatile The Little Things Stamps and coordinating The Little Things Dies as well as the Fringed Scalloped Circle Dies



I started with a black stamped sentiment from The Little Things Stamps on a white card base and then die cut a series of leaves and flowers from The Little Things Dies with various shades of green from the leaves and white for the flowers. I also die cut all of the circles from the Fringed Scalloped Circle Dies in a deep teal color. These were arranged onto the white card base, with the middle circle set adhered with dimensional adhesive. I then arranged the vines and flowers around the fringed circle and sentiment, and finished with yellow accents.

My next card also features a couple of products from the new release, and I'm still in awe on how Lil' Inker Designs products work so well together!


For this card, I embossed an distress inked kraft panel with the Quilted Stitched Spirals Die. I further outlined the spirals with a warm gray copic marker. I adhered this to a white card base. For the sentiment, I painted a watercolored panel with shades of blue and purple and then die cut a fun sentiment from the super versatile Everyday Word Tags Dies. I simply trimmed off the tag part before adhering the die cut to my card! I finished the card by rounding the bottom corners and adding a loose double bow of burlap string.

Here's a look at the new release products showcased in my card today:





Also, the Stitched Gift Card Holder Die is back for a limited time! The size is slightly improved (a bit larger for more wiggle room and easier folding...). These are just perfect for your holiday gift-giving!

It is with pleasure that I get to send you to the talented Chrissy Larson's Blog as the next stop along the hop. I hope you get a chance to visit the Lil' Inker Design Store now as all the NEW JULY 2016 RELEASE products are already up at the store!


Don't forget to leave a comment along the each of the stops on the hop, as there are three $15 gift certificates up for grabs to the Lil' Inker Designs Store!
