LID:: July 2015 Release:: Day 1


It's the first day of the Lil' Inker Designs July Release and I'm positive you will love it! As usual, we have a fabulous hop for you featuring innovative stamps and dies! You should have arrived from Chrissy Larson's Blog!

I have two projects to show you today! My first card features the new Cover Up Die: Stitched Woodgrain (which I helped design!!) as well as the Snailed It! Dies and Snailed It! Stamp Set. So cute together but could be used separately too! I started by embossing a pink cardstock background panel with the Stitched Woodgrain (see the awesome heart in the middle and bottom corner?? Love!). I then cut a series of dots with the largest rectangle from Dual Dotted Rectangle Dies (released last month) for the snail to rest on. The next step was to die cut a snail and then I inked the entire panel and adhered it to my cardstock base. I finished the card with a sentiment from Snailed It! then was stamped in a die from Speech Bubbles 2 Die Set. I completed the look by stamping a cute smile for the snail from the Piece of Me Stamp Set (perfect size for this snail!) and added a paper flower shell.


My next card features the coordinating Snailed It! Dies and Snailed It! Stamps as well as the Wrapper's Delight: Sunburst wrap around die released last month.This card was so quick and easy to put together! So cute.


Your next stop is Lisa Henke!
