Lil' Inker Designs March Release - Day 2



Hi there!   Today I've got a few more Easter/Spring projects to share with you using the fabulous new March release from Lil' Inker Designs.   You'll find a clickable links for all of the LID products I've used at the bottom of this post!


First up a card using the clever Easter Egg Pop Up die!  This is such a unique die, in that it cuts the eggs while leaving a small portion at the top and bottom attached.   You can then curl the edges up for dimension!   (A little trick here is to place something round, like a pencil, in the center of the egg before folding.   This will ensure that you don't get a hard crease when lifting the edges!) 


This is such a cool die, and I wanted to do something really colorful with it rather than just die cut it from a solid - so I decided to add watercolor patterned paper strips to a piece of white cardstock with removable adhesive before running it through my die cutting machine.  Once die cut, I removed the paper from the negative space, leaving the paper only on the eggs.   I did have to snip some of them with my scissors to cleanly remove all of the excess paper.  

I didn't want to cover up too much of the cool background, so I added some more strips of watercolor paper and added a sentiment from the Brush Script Spring dies to finish the card.

My next card uses the super sweet Easter Parade stamps and dies.   I am a sucker for an adorable critter stamp set, and these springtime cuties totally make me smile!


I had the perfect strip of patterned paper from Echo Park in my stash, so I used it as a place to ground my Copic colored bunny & chick.   I used the Quilted Stitched Pattern die for the background.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!    We have one more day of inspiration left, so be sure to stop back tomorrow.   And remember, you have a chance to win the ENTIRE March release - just leave a comment on each stop of the blog hop and you'll be entered to win!   Now head on over to Lisa's blog to see what she has in store for you!
