It's day two of our amazing Lil' Inker Designs October release bloghop. Hopefully, you are coming from Amy's blog. If not, you might want to go to the Lil' Inker blog to make sure you start at the beginning.
You are going to love the products I'm showing today just as much as yesterday's amazing designs. Lucky for you, all the items from the October release are already available in the Lil' Inker Store. You can have it all on its way to you while you sit back and enjoy the inspiration all along the bloghop. Oh! Don't forget to comment as you go, Laura is giving away a $15 credit to 3 lucky hoppers. Awesome!
This first card uses the new Cover Up Die: Snowflakes and, boy, is this an amazing die. You may think I'm crazy but my favorite thing about this is the fact that there is white space. So many cover dies that I find are crammed full of whatever shape they are using and they leave no space for your eye to rest and really enjoy what you are looking at. I guess, to me, they can be busy. The Cover Up Die: Snowflakes is simple perfection. Just look:
For my card, I cut two of these gorgeous die cuts, one in navy and one in vellum. Let's see what you think.
I layered these die cuts (a bit offset) on some mirrored cardstock. I love the little peek of the vellum around the edges of each snowflake. Finishing the card was easy, a sentiment from the Cozy Winter Wishes Stamp Set embossed in white on vellum and some coordinating enamel dots and the card was done. See how not every snowflake touches another? That is why I love this so much. Each snowflake gets its own shining moment. Gorgeous!
Next up, I'm going to play with some more snowflakes using the Cozy Winter Wishes Stamp Set. I wanted to make a small wintery scene with these wonderful snowflakes so I decided to use the Border Builders Die Set on this card as well.
Here's how I used them:
First up, I inked a cut from Stitched Mats: Rounded Rectangle Dies to look like a winter sky. Then I used Border Builders Die Set to make a hill with glitter paper and another with pearlized paper. I stamped my snowflakes from the Cozy Winter Wishes Stamp Set in black and embossed one in silver on a bit of vellum which I thought looked awesome (I'll be doing that again!). I finished the card off with a strip of vellum stamped with a sentiment from Cozy Winter Wishes Stamp Set and a little bling.
My last card uses another fun stamp set, Big Christmas Stamp Set. These sentiments can carry a card all on their own. Just look...
I was wondering in a store one day with my coffee in hand and I saw the most adorable packaging. It was wood and gold but SUPER simple. When I saw the Big Christmas Stamp Set I knew I wanted to do a play on that packaging. I found some wood panel patterned paper in my stash and cut the Small Bow Die from gold glitter paper to hold this awesome kraft and gold glitter tag that I had in my stash. To make the sentiment pop with all that glitter, I cut a piece of acetate to wrap around the tag. I stamped and embossed the sentiment in black and it really pops...no additional bling needed. ;)
I hope you liked my cards today and I'm so happy you stopped by to see what I created with all these amazing Lil' Inker Designs products. You better get going though, if you want to get to all the amazing blogs in today's hop. See you again tomorrow!
