Lil' Inker Designs December New Release Blog Hop Day 2!

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, lucky for you, you can get it all right now in the Lil' Inker Store.  You should have come here from the amazing Lisa'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 new So Prickly Paper Pack, Boxed Up Thank You Greeting, and the amazing Cover Up Die: Diamond Lace.

How gorgeous is the Cover Up Die: Diamond Lace?  I think I gasped when I pulled it out of the package the first time and then again when I cut it for this card.  I cut it out of a mint card stock which I then layered over a green card base that would match the new So Prickly Paper Pack.  This paper is TOO fun and full of cute cacti but also fun coordinating prints and patterns.  You are going to love it.  I cut strips from two of the fun papers and layered that with a coral color card stock to make a fun strip across my card front.  Next, I cut the new Boxed Up Thank You Greeting from the same coral color and layered it on some polka dot paper.  I wanted to make the greeting stand out just a bit more so I added some white dot accents with a gel pen.

Sticking with the thank you theme, my next card uses Dual Dotted Circles and the With Gratitude Word Die.

This card totally started with the background.  I just fell in love with this paper and knew it would make a fun winter card.  So, I tore a piece of patterned vellum to add a focal point before layering a glittery Dual Dotted Circle with some fun snowflakes cut using the Snowflakes Dies.  Next, I cut the new With Gratitude Die from a light snowy blue and layered it with another cut in a darker color to shadow the first cut.  I added a puffy heart and some enamel dots and sequins to finish off the card.

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!
