Lil' Inker Designs January Release Day #2


It's day two of the Lil' Inker Designs New Release Hop and I get to share even more fun goodies with you today!  I'm sure you've already been eyeing all the awesome new items, lucky for you, you can get it all right now in the Lil' Inker Store.  Hopefully, you checked out all of Amy's blog amazing creations before hopping here.  If not, make sure you check it out and if you get lost along the hop you can always find your spot by going to the Lil' Inker Blog.  For now, I'm ready to show off some more fun stuff!

I couldn't wait to share this card with you guys because I love the Perfect Palette Heart Die.  It is so cute and pairs so well with the Heartthrob Stamps.


I cut the Perfect Palette Heart Die from so many different colors and was just having fun playing with it but when I cut it from kraft card stock, I was hooked.  I layered this cut on some white card stock and started stamping some hearts from through the openings with the Heartthrob Stamps.  I just love the options with this stamp set!  So many fun combos.  I added a few of the stitched hearts back to the card front with some foam tape.  My sentiment was simple and stamped using the lovely sentiments in the Heartthrob Stamps on white strips.  A couple enamel heats finish off the card.  Here's a closer look:


My next card uses the adorable Bear Hugger Die & Stamp Bundle, a heart from the Perfect Palette Heart Die, and the previously release Fringe Scalloped Border Builder Die Set and Fringed Scalloped Rectangles Dies.


In case you didn't know it, I'm a sucker for all of the Hugger Dies.  They are SO cute and SO versatile.  I started this card by cutting out my Bear Hugger Die & Stamp Bundle from kraft and stamping his cute little face on.  I wanted this guy to be the center of attention so I cut a white Fringed Scalloped Rectangles to frame him.  It looked a little plain so I used the stomach sentiment from the Bear Hugger Die & Stamp Bundle to stamp circles as a background.  The next sized rectangle wasn't quite the right size for what I wanted so I grabbed the Fringe Scalloped Border Builder Die Set to create the exact size pink heart layer with the same border as my rectangle.  Love how it ended up looking side by side.  I layered all of this on a kraft card base and gave my bear a sweet stitched heart from the Perfect Palette Heart Die to hold (told you I cut it in a ton of colors!).  Here's a closer look:


Thanks so much for looking at my project today!  Thanks for checking me out and don't forget about our giveaway!

Lil' Inker Designs January Release Day #1


Hi, you guys!  It's day one of the Lil' Inker Designs New Release Blog Hop and I'm super excited to share all the new products with you!  I think you are really going to enjoy this release and all the new inspiration from our team.  It's packed with fun, as always and, lucky for you, all the new products are available right now at the Lil' Inker Store!  We have an amazing blog hop for you today so, hopefully, you are coming from Amy's blog and if not, you won't want to miss her amazing creations!  Make sure you didn't miss anyone and start at the Lil' Inker Blog.  Now for the fun!

Today I'm sharing my cute little coffee tag with you and I just know you will love it. 
 

I created this tag by cutting out a Love Tags Die Set from red card stock.  I just love the little hearts on the border!  Next, I cut the mug from Coffee Talk 2 Die Set out of the side of a disposable coffee cup that I had been saving because I loved the pattern.  I added some dark coffee inside with a little reflection added with a white gel pen.  I layered this on my card and got to work on my sentiment.  The sentiment couldn't be easier with the new With Love Word Die.  I cut a black and a vellum "with love" and layered them before adding it to my tag with some foam tape.  I added some touches to of white gel pen to the words too.  Finally, I used some of the hearts left over from the card I made with the new Perfect Palette Heart Die (I'll be showing that off tomorrow).  To finish the tag off, I added some enamel hearts, a piece of black twine, and a little touch of red Stickles.  Here's a closer look:


The next project I have to share uses the Radiating Love Heart Die and the Sending My Love Word Die.


This card was super simple but I love the look of it.  I started with a dip dyed card base and added the radiating look to the background with the Radiating Love Heart Die.  I found a piece of card stock that was the same tone as my card base but deeper and cut the heart from Radiating Love Heart Die and popped it in the center of the embossed area with foam tape.  Next, I layered several cuts of the Sending My Love Word Die, cut in black, before adding that to my card front also with foam tape.  Here's a closer look:


Thanks so much for looking at my projects today!  Don't forget about our giveaway!

Good morning, you guys!  It's an amazingly nice day here for January and I'm not complaining one bit.  I'm sitting here with a kitty on part of my keyboard so it's taking me a little longer to type this since I have to correct for kitty butt errors.  ;)  Again, can't complain.  I hope you are having a morning as nice and relaxing as mine and are excited to join us for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  It's a fun one and you won't want to miss out on the amazing cards the team created!  Make sure to go check them out.  For now, here my creation(s):



Yes, I made three cards for this sketch because I used the awesome Lil' Inker Designs Color Blocking Die.  I picked three pieces of paper from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Lovely Day paper pack and layered them so I could make one cut and three cards from that cut.  You can check out Jen's video to see how you can line them up for an easy one cut/three card method.  After cutting, I mixed up the papers and attached them to my card bases before adding a sentiment on a strip of coral cardstock using the Because Stamp Set.  I just love the font on this stamp set and it's a perfect little birthday sentiment.  Here's a closer look at my super simple card and take on this week's sketch:


Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my take on this week's sketch.  See you over at CAS(E) this Sketch.

Happy 2019!!!!  How in the world is that even possible?  I'm not really sure where the holidays went but they certainly flew by.  I hope you all are having a great new year so far and are ready to play along with us at CAS(E) this Sketch.  We have a fun challenge for you guys today and I happen to LOVE how my card turned out.  It might not be super CAS but, oh well!  Ha ha.  It took me awhile to create something I liked so I'm going with it.  I swear I lose all my card making mojo during the holidays and it takes FOREVER to get back.  I think I also lose a little bit of my mind because I totally forgot to photograph my card until this morning and, of course, it is pitch black out.  Oh well, some picture is better than no picture, right?  Here's my card:


I used some stamps and dies from Neat and Tangled (links below) that I just adore!  The paper are from My Mind's Eye Wander collection and I thought they were perfect for this little alligator.  I thought you also might get a kick out of seeing the card I made the last time this sketch was on our challenge:


I like my newest take so much better but isn't that always the way?  I swear when I look back at older cards that I have made, I never like them like I thought I did.  Well, here's hoping whatever you make for this sketch is a card you love!  I'll see you over at CAS(E) this Sketch!

Good morning!  It's another awesome Thursday and I get to share my take on this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  This is a longer than normal challenge to run through the holidays so you have plenty of time to play along!

I'm just getting things all wrapped up for Christmas and I actually feel like I'm ahead of the game this year.  I'm still in denial the Christmas is rapidly approaching.  I swear it still feels like October to me.

This past weekend was the church Christmas Program and with that behind me, I can relax.  I stress about it every year and every year, it goes smoothly.  It is done and now I can have some fun.  Speaking of fun, have you see the new sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch?  The design team has some AMAZING creations this week and you simply have to check them out.  While you are here, here's my take:


I used the My Mind's Eye Winterberry collection for this card.  I simple layered papers (some cut with Lil' Inkers Dual Stitched Rectangles) and elements from the chipboard sticker pack.  It was super simple and I hope you like it.  Here's a closer look:


Thanks so much for checking out my card today and I hope you'll join us CAS(E) this Sketch at for this fun challenge!
