Lil' Inker Designs January Release - Day 1


Good Monday morning to you!    Today marks the start of the new January release from Lil' Inker Designs - and let me tell you.....it's AH-mazing!!!   First up a card featuring the brand new stamp set, Love & Honey (along with the matching die).


I stamped that gorgeous floral heart on silver shimmer paper and colored it in with Copics.   I used the coordinating die to cut it out and adhered it with foam tape to the background panel (featuring Quilted Stitched So Knotty - which is available FREE with a $75 purchase through the end of the month!!!)  The sentiment is from an older LID set, Filled Heart.



Next up is a card using a really cool new die called Forever Heart, Layer II.   There is also a Layer I, which works as a companion if you wish!   I'll be sharing more projects with both layers throughout the week!


This die has an awesome stitched edge, but because I wanted a colored border for this card, I trimmed the stitched edges off.   I masked off the background area and stamped several of the 'Love' words included in the new stamp set Love is Love within the stitched heart.   I love how this turned out!  



When I had the stamping finished, I sprayed the entire piece with sparkle spray from Therm-O-Web and added a sentiment from an older set, Clean Lines: For the Guys.
Want to win the ENTIRE January release?!?  Of course you do, lol!    Be sure to leave comments on all of the DT blogs over the next few days - the more you comment, the more chances you have to win!   Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Lisa Henke!

  4. Kim, these projects are so so stunning. Your first card just pops off the screen! I love the layout and colors and the sentiment!! The sentiment from that previously released set is PERFECTION!!!!
    I am obsessed with your stamped text background on the second card and how you've been able to show off yet another way in which the Forever Heart Die Layers can be used. Brilliant!!!
    I'm so so excited that you are part of our Lil' family!!! Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into this release!!!
