LID:: September 2016 Release:: Day 2


Welcome back to the second day of Lil' Inker Designs September 2016 Release Showcase! I hope you've enjoyed seeing all the new products in action as much as I have enjoyed working with them!


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
Joy Taylor's Blog! 

I wanted to showcase some of the Halloween specific products in ways that can be used all year round, as I like to get the most out of my stamps and dies. So my first card features the adorable Batty Hugger Die and Stamp Bunch, as well as the Halloween Word Tag Dies, on a birthday card! I die cut the adorable bat from white cardstock and inked him up in soft purple. I personalized the bat even more by stamping some details in soft gray from the Batty Hugger Stamp Set. He was then adhered to a white cardstock background that had some clouds stenciled onto it-made with the Border Builders Die Set. I am obsessed with the cloud looking border in this die set!


I finished the card by die cutting and stacking three times the "Eeek" word from the Halloween Word Tag Dies. Before adhering, I snipped off the tag hanger. Then I stamped a mix of sentiments from the previously released Seriously Awesome Stamp Set.

My next card features many of the awesome new dies from this release, along with some previously released dies. Still lovin' how Lil' Inker Designs products work so well together!


I started by die cutting in white cardstock the Spiderweb Greeting Die and then adhered the spiderweb portion over a piece of black cardstock. I then created the spooky headstone from the new Tombstone Peek a Boo Die. (This die was designed to make interative cards, as it has a score line on the left side, but I easily just trimmed in a straight line to make a stand alone tombstone). I think the end result is so cool! The next step was to create a mound of grass using the Border Builders Die Set from green cardstock (sky on the first card, grass on the second, this die set is so versatile, I tell ya!). I adhered the grass and the tombstone to an inked up nighttime sky panel and then cut the panel with the Stitched Mats: Rectangles Die Set. This was mounted to a white cardstock panel. For the greeting, I adhered the words from the Spiderweb Greeting Die and for the finished touch a added a bat cut from the previously released Bats & Broomsticks Die!

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