Lil' Inker Designs / September Release Day 1


We are starting off Day 1 of the Lil' Inker Designs October Release!  This release is FULL of amazing dies and stamps for the upcoming holidays.......are you ready?  Guess what??  The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!!

Let's get started because I have THREE cards to share using the new release!

I like to start out with my favorite stamp set of the release and Festive Florals won me over.  Holiday florals and white heat embossing?  LOVE!  To color the poinsettias, I used Bristol Smooth Watercolor Paper with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and kept adding color and shading until I was satisfied with the look.  My sentiment was done using gold embossing powder.  The panel was finished using the Silly Stitched Die Set, gold spatters, and then added with foam adhesive.  



My next 2 cards use the same non-traditional color palette.  I particularly LOVE these colors for holiday cards!

I began this card with a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper and did the smooshing technique using Distress Inks:  Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, and Peacock Feathers.  While allowing this to dry, I diecut the Christmas Words Tree Die in black and several white layers.  Once the dies were all adhered together, I added some Prisma Glitter to the star and added my element to the water color panel.




My next card uses the same colors but this time using Catherine Pooler inks (which are amazing and you can shop for them on my sidebar!).   Using the Peace, Love, and Joy Stamps, I stamped the highlighed parts of the words with the colored ink onto a strip of white cardstock.  This strip was layered with a strip of vellum with foam adhesive.  The whole sentiment was added to a white top folding notecard that was layered with the Geometric Snow Cover Up Die and some iridescent sequins.


Now for the fun part!  There is a giveaway for one lucky make sure to check out the Lil' Inker Designs Blog for details!

Spellbinders / October 2017 Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY


Welcome!  I am so honored to be helping Spellbinders alongside so many fabulous designers to celebrate their October release of Die D-Lites.  They have some amazing new die collections! 


I went very Clean and Simple to show off these dies.  I love florals and used the new Die D-lites Daisy 2 Etched Dies I started with 2 panels trimmed at an angle, one in grey and one in black.  After adding these to my white top folding notecard, I added a stamped sentiment to follow the angle of the panels.  Using the Daisy 2 Dies, several were die cut with red, pink, yellow, green, and orange cardstocks.  Once I had these in an arrangement I liked, I used Press 'n Seal to pick up the arrangement, add glue, and adhere in place.  TIP:  these dies also emboss but I didn't want that much dimension here.  


To celebrate this release, Spellbinders is giving away a $50 gift certificate to FIVE lucky winners. Please leave a comment on Spellbinders blog by Thursday, October 19th 11:59 pm EDT for a chance to win. The winners will be announced in the blog hop post on Spellbinders blog the following day.

Lil' Inker Designs / A Haunting We Will Go


Hello!  Stopping in with a quick Halloween card.  I adore these cute critters from the A Haunting We Will Go from Lil' Inker Designs.

I used the Side Stitched Rectangles on a grey panel and stamped the spider web multiple times in black ink.  Using the Stitched Chevron Border Die, I ran it through once and then again shortening it for my card layout.  I added my Copic colored critters and bat along with some black gems.


Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!
