Lil' Inker Designs June Release - Day 1


Hi there, and happy Monday, friends!   Not only is today the last day of school for my kiddos (aside from going back for a few Regents exams) - it's also the first day of the Lil' Inker Designs June release!   There's definitely something for everyone this release!   Are you a cat lover?   Know a cat lover?   Then the stamp set I've used today is purr-fect for you!

For my card I've used the super duper adorable Cat Hugs stamps and dies.   This stamp is a coloring lover's dream!   This crowd of cats looks great whether you color them entirely (like I did with Copics for this card), or if you just highlight a few cats, or even just their accessories, as you will see in some of the other design team members' projects.


The best part of this stamp set is the coordinating dies - there are traditional dies to cut out each of the tiny accessories, but then there are two other dies - one will cut along the top edge of the cats, and the other will cut tiny slots for their paws so that you can insert those cutie pie accessories - very cool!!  

I wanted to have my crowd of cats as a bit of a surprise on the inside of the card, so after scoring my card base, I used the Fringed Scallop Heart die to die cut a window on the front.   Then I adhered my patterned paper and cat die cut on the inside and stamped the sentiment.   


Would you like to win the ENTIRE June release?   I know you would!   Just leave a comment here before hopping over to Lisa's blog - and be sure to leave comments on each stop of the hop for even more chances to win!   Some lucky crafter is going to be very happy!  Below you will find the entire hop list, as well as links to the products I've used for today's projects.   Be sure to stop by again tomorrow for more projects with this new release!   Have a great day!

  35. Love how you framed the cats - figured
