Spiffy Borders!

Hi guys!   Just popping in today with a cheery birthday card.    The new Spiffy Spots stamp set from Lil' Inker Designs is just so darn versatile!    Here I've used it to create a border for my sentiment.   I just repeatedly stamped a few of the images with Catherine Pooler inks (they're so nice & vivid!), not worrying too much when they overlapped.   The sentiment is from Hand Drawn Happiness!
I hope you've enjoyed my card today!    Just another fun way to use the new Spiffy Spots stamp set.   Take care and happy crafting!

Lil' Inker Designs July Release - Day 3


Hello there!   It's the third and final day of  Lil' Inker Designs' July release.  Be sure to read to the end to find out how you can win the entire release!
I've got a card for you today made with the new Perfect Palette die, Spiffy Spots stamp set and the Quilted Stitched - So Stylish die!

I used the Perfect Palette die to quickly cut several circles in shades of coral, orange and yellow.   I lined them up on a white card panel die cut with the Quilted Stitched - So Stylish die.   Isn't that texture gorgeous?!   All of the Quilted Stitched dies are my favorite - I could never pick just one, lol!   I added some circles stamped in black ink from the Spiffy Spots stamp set, and a flag with the sentiment heat embossed in white to complete this card!

Lil' Inker Designs July Release - Day 2


Good morning!   It's day two of Lil' Inker Designs' July release.  Be sure to read to the end to find out how you can win the entire release!
Today I'm sharing a card made with the most adorable new set, Animal Doctors, and the new Perfect Palette die!

I die cut the Perfect Palette die twice - once from a heart patterned paper and once from a plaid patterned paper.   I popped the plaid circles inside the empty circles, and cut a small rectangle to place in the center for my doggie doctor!  I die cut and colored Dr. Dog and the tiny accessories with Copic markers and added them to the card with foam tape.

Lil' Inker Designs July Release - Day 1


Good morning!   It's time for Lil' Inker Designs' July release - this month's release is small, but mighty, lol!     There are lots of awesome products that I'm sure you're going to be excited about!  Be sure to read to the end to find out how you can win the entire release!
Today I'm sharing a card made with the super duper cute new Scooter Balloons stamps and dies.    Ever know just exactly how you want to use a stamp set when you see it for the first time? Yep, I knew this adorable scooter would be awesome partially die cut.    I decided where I wanted the scooter on my card panel and die cut just half of it (by only covering the portion of the die I wanted cut with my cutting plates).   I stamped the images and colored them with Copic markers, and added some Glossy Accents to the balloons.   I added the panel to my card base with foam adhesive.

Newton's Nook 5 Year Anniversary Blog Hop


 

Hi there, crafty friends!   I'm super excited to be joining the Newton's Nook design team and special guests for the 5 Year Celebration Blog Hop!   I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a NND design team member, and I was thrilled Jen asked me to be a part of their 5th year celebratory blog hop!  Now - on to my projects!
First up, a card using a brand new stencil and one of my all-time favorite NND sets, Tranquil Tides.   I started by inking a square panel of Yupo paper with shades of turquoise, blue and purple alcohol inks.   Next, I used the brand new Tropical Fish Stencil and spread on some metallic embossing paste.  After allowing that to dry a bit, I added a shaker element with a vellum window.   A tropical fish & piece of coral stamped, heat embossed and die cut from Tranquil Tides finished off this card!


Next up is a card using the super fun new Shark Frenzy stamp set!  I created a card fit for a dapper dude by first adhering three shades of grey cardstock to a thin piece of white  paper.   I stamped and heat embossed the sharks on this piece.  I fussy cut a little bow tie for one of the sharks to go along with the funny sentiment!
I hope you've been enjoying the hop!   Details on how to win one of FIVE fabulous prizes from NND are below. Your next stop is the super talented Jen Shurkus!

Sweet!

Hi friends!  I've been playing some more with the June Lil' Inker Designs release this week and I wanted to share a card today that uses several of the new release items!
I used a piece of the new Cover Up Die - Perfectly Plaid for my background.   There are so many awesome uses for this die!   I didn't layer it here, but if you cut it twice and flip one of the layers around, they layer up and create the coolest plaid pattern!   I snipped the hole from the Sweet sentiment (from the Baby Word Tag Dies) and layered the white cut on top of the pink cut.   The large flowers and leaf are from the new Perky Posies XL dies and the smaller are from Perky Posies.   These dies are so much fun to use - the color combinations and layers are endless!   I added some clear Nuvo drops to the center of each flower.   The 'You Are' sentiment from the previously released  Best Mom was stamped and heat embossed on a strip of pink cardstock.    

Thanks for stopping by today!    Be sure to check out all of the new goodies in the Lil' Inker Designs shop.   If any item is out of stock, you can go ahead and enter your email and you'll be notified when it's back in stock.  Have a wonderful Wednesday!
