LID:: February 2017 Release:: Day 1



Today is the first of three days of the Lil' Inker Designs February 2017Release Showcase...full of innovative, fun and beautiful items! Once again, we have a fabulous hop for you featuring new stamps and dies perfect for spring and really, every day! If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from the ever so talented Jessica's Blog! (Visit the Lil' Inker Design's Blog for the full link up.)


One of the adorable, hip bunnies from Bunny Buddies is the star of my show on my first card. I stamped, embossed and watercolored the hip guy, and die cut him out. 


He was mounted onto a panel cut from one of the fun designs from the Tribal Chic Paper Pad and Dual Dotted Rectangle Dies. I masked the balloon and stamped just the bunny onto some speckled white cardstock before mounting the focal panel. I finished the card with a die cut word from the new Celebrate Word Die.


This next fun card features some really cool, new products too! I created the background with an innovative die called the Color Blocking Die. This die essentilly divides your card panel into three pieces with the nice die edge. You can use it to get three cardstock panels, or a nice color angle element, just to name a couple! It takes the guess work out of angled measurements and leaves the nice, crisp and even die cut line. Here I used it in conjunction with three bright cardstock panels, two of which were stamped with images from the Cat Treats Stamp Set. One panel was bordered with a black sentiment die cut from the Happy Birthday Border Die


I then stamped and die cut one of the cute kitties from Cat Treats Stamp Set and corresponding Cat Treats Die Set, coloring a few elements with boldly with markers. That finished up the card!

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





It is with pleasure that I get to send you to the talented Lisa Henke'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 FEBRUARY 2017 RELEASE products are already up at the store!
