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 since, lucky for you, you can get it all right now in the Lil' Inker Store. You should have come here from the amazing Karen Baker's blog. Hopefully, you can still see after she blinded you with her awesomeness! If you didn't, don't miss out on anything and make sure you start at the beginning of the hop by going to the Lil' Inker Blog. For now, I'm ready to show off some more fun stuff!
First up, I made a cute card using the Ornamental Christmas Stamps and Ornamental Christmas Dies.
I started by creating a frame for my card using Dual Dotted Rectangles. Then I cut two stockings out of my card front using the Ornamental Christmas Dies to make windows for a shaker card. I then stamped my stocking in the center in black for a focal point using Ornamental Christmas Stamps. After adhering acetate to my stocking windows, adding foam tape, and filling them with sequins, I added some fun black and white patterned paper as the background of my shakers. I ended up with a simple, fun, and slightly elegant card. Can't beat that!
Next, for a little more Christmas fun, I used the Oh My Ornament Dies and the All the Christmas You'll Ever Need Stamps to create this fun card.
I started by cutting ornament upon ornament from various colors of paper using the Oh My Ornament Dies. I love being able to cut the hanger separate and I decided to use some silver paper for them to get a little shine on the card. I cut a larger ornament from some glitter paper to hold my sentiment from the All the Christmas You'll Ever Need Stamps. This set is serious all you could possible need sentiment wise and I LOVE how they are arranged and decorated. There is a ton of fun to be had with this stamp set. I strung my ornaments on some twine and hung my larger ornament from this twine with another piece of twin. The ornament are free floating on this card and I think it adds just a little extra fun!
You get a third project today, can you believe it? I just couldn't help myself from dressing up a gift bag with the Oh Deer Christmas Stamp Set.
I started this fun tag with a cut of red and a cut of vellum using the Lollipop and Pencil Treat Holder Die. I just love the shape of this for tags and it has the perfect spot for ribbon! I stamped my deer image from Oh Deer Christmas Stamp Set in a permanent black ink and then colored on the backside of my vellum with copics. I love how it gives an almost frosted look to the coloring. Next, I embossed some of the snow around the edges of my tag with white embossing using some of the berry shapes for larger snow flakes. I finished it off with a big red ribbon which looks just amazing on my chevron bag.
I hope you enjoyed my creations and will join the rest of the team on the hop. You'll want to leave comments along the way because Laura gives out a $15 Lil' Inker Designs store credit to a lucky commenter each day of the hop. It could be you. I'm sure I'll see you on the hop and tomorrow for another fun day of release projects. See you then!
