Lil' Inker Designs July 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 Karen's blog and if not, you won't want to miss her amazing creations or anyone's for that matter!  So make sure you didn't miss anyone and start at the Lil' Inker Blog.  Now for the fun!

My first project for today features Doodled Daisies Stamps, Doodled Daisies Dies, and the Happy Birthday Border Die.


I actually started this card playing around with all the different combos of dies and stamp options available using Doodled Daisies Stamps and Doodled Daisies Dies.  These are really fun to play with and I enjoyed mixing and matching solid stamps with the image stamps.  When my desk was full of flowers, I realized I better figure out what I wanted to do with them all.  I found this green pattern paper that reminded me of the doodled quality of my stamped images so I went with that for a card base.  Next, I new I was dying to use the Happy Birthday Border Die so I cut it from black to make it really stand out against the green.  I added it to my card front using some foam tape so I had plenty of room to arrange flowers in front and behind the cut.  I laid all my flowers out so I could get the alignment of the swirly sprig just right before stamping it in black on my patterned paper.  Next, I fastened all my blooms to my card.  Here's a closer look at the dimension:


Next up, I had tons of fun with the new Quilted Stitched Spirals Cover Up Die and the Boxed Up So Happy For You Die.


I started by cutting the Boxed Up So Happy For You Die from a sheet of cork.  I was really in the mood for cork.  Ha ha!  It looked awesome, especially when I lined it with black card stock.  I played with various color combos but I ended up loving it with black and gold.  I embossed the Quilted Stitched Spirals Cover Up Die on my black card base and strip of gold paper at the same time so the swirl pattern was continuous across the two.  Next I wound some twine around the gold section before adding the Boxed Up So Happy For You with foam tape.   I added some glitter stars and a dot for a little extra fun.  My favorite part of this card?  They way the swirls look on the gold paper.  Check it out in the close up:    




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!
