Lil' Inker Designs December Release Blog Hop Day 2

It's another awesome day on the Lil' Inker Designs December Release Blog Hop.  I bet you guys all had a great time checking out all the goodies and creations yesterday.  Well, today is just as awesome!  If you didn't know already, the whole release is available right now in the Lil' Inker Store.  Hopefully, you already checked out Amy and her amazing creations.  If not, head on over to the the Lil' Inker Blog so you don't miss a thing.  You will want to start at the tip top of this hop!

Are you ready for some cards?  Well, here's my first creation for today.


I took one look at all the amazing rectangles in the Stitched Mats:  Long & Skinny Rectangles Die Set and knew I wanted to make the keys on a piano.  Maybe it was my son practicing for his piano recital in the background but that is TOTALLY what I saw when I looked at them.  I didn't want a boring piano because these dies are too cool for that so, I decided to have my keys make a wave across the card front.  Then I stamped the first part of my sentiment with the Hello, Awesome Stamp set on a key and placed the Awesome Word Die just so.  To place the sequins, I just dropped a few and glued them down where they landed.  You seriously need ALL of this!

In case you are still on the fence, check these out:


Hello!!!!  The Hello, Awesome Stamp set and Awesome Word Die is just made for card sets.  Just look at how easily these came together.  I started with two already released items, the Quilted Stitched Pattern Die and Stitched Mats:  Rounded Rectangles.  Then, I went to town cutting out awesome after Awesome Word Die.  I embossed some of the sentiments from the Hello, Awesome Stamp set on my rectangles then stuck down my die.  I thought the "awesome" on each card needed a little something extra so I covered them in glossy accents.  My "awesome possum" card got a little extra dose of cute with the possum hanging from the "P".  How cute is he?

Here's the awesomeness I used today:

  9. fun idea to hear you drop the sequins and glue where they drop. Takes away the rigid placement impediment. Love the black and white card - kind of looks like piano keys.
