Lil' Inker Designs August Release Hop 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 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 card uses the new Encouraging Words Stamps, Encouraging Words Dies, and the Hello Beautiful Cover Up Dies.  


I was playing with the new Encouraging Words Stamps and got a little crazy stamping and masking flowers on my background and then adding some color with my zig markers.  Once I came up with an arrangement I liked, I started layering a slice of the Hello Beautiful Cover Up Dies backed with black to show through those awesome dots.  This made for a great border through the center.  Next I created a sentiment block with a sentiment from Encouraging Words Stamps and a piece of orange paper cut with a Dual Stitched Rectangle.  A added a heart and colored it in to match the flowers.  Next, I cute some more flowers using the Encouraging Words Dies and arranged them around my sentiment.  Here's another peek:


Next up, I just couldn't resist playing with the Encouraging Words Stamps and Encouraging Words Dies again.  I paired it with the gorgeous new Fringe Scalloped Tag Dies with a little topper I created using the Deco Edge Border Dies.


I started this card by creating a tag.  I just love the look of the Fringe Scalloped Tag Dies and  I love it in kraft.  I added a little extra fun by adding a yellow piece of paper to the top of my tag that was trimmed with one of the dies in our new Deco Edge Border Dies.  To finish it off, I wound some twine around the top.  I created a thicker banner by trimming the end of a Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangle and then embossed a sentiment from Encouraging Words Stamps.  Next, I layered another colored flower cut using the Encouraging Words Dies.  I tried a ton of different card bases but settled on this black and white striped paper cut with a Dual Stitched Rectangle.  A few sequins and I was done!  Here's a closer look:



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 is giving away the ENTIRE NEW RELEASE to a lucky commenter during the new release hop.  The winner could be you.  I hope you are enjoying our new release!  We love sharing these awesome products with you!  Be sure to keep hopping, here's the list:
