Lil' Inker Designs February Release - Day 3

Welcome back for day three of Lil' Inker Designs' February release!   Today I'm sharing my very favorite cards of the release - these both use the fabulous new Cover Up Die - Mod Circles!

This first card is so bright and cheerful!   I die cut the Cover Up Die - Mod Circles from black, aqua, raspberry, lime & orange papers.  I adhered the black die cut to a white card base and inlaid the colored pieces.  I heat embossed the sentiment from Sassy Pants in white, then stamped and die cut the Snarky Shadow Hello and adhered it with foam tape!

This next card also uses the Cover Up Die - Mod Circles, but this time I've snipped just a strip from two colors and offset them to create a fun border.  

 stamped and heat embossed the Hello sentiment from Snarky Shadow Hello with aqua glitter, and added a supporting sentiment strip in coordinating cardstock to finish the card!

That's all I've got for you today, but be sure to check back in the next few weeks to see some more projects using this fabulous new release!   Don't forget to comment along the hop for your chance to WIN the entire release!   To head on over to the shop, CLICK HERE!

Lil' Inker Designs February Release - Day 2

Welcome back for day two of the Lil' Inker Designs February release!   I've got a card to share today using the cutest new stamps & dies - Sassy Girl!

Since the set is all about the sass, I wanted to add an animal print border to my card so I began by stamping an image from Unstoppable along the top and bottom of my card panel.   I added detail to the stamped images with a black marker and voila!   Cheetah spots!

Next up that sweet & sassy gal!  I die cut the sunglasses, lips face & hair and stamped and embossed the pretty hair bow.   I added some embossing ink to the sunglasses and heat embossed the frames with a matching red glitter!  A little blush to the cheeks and glossy accents on the lips finish off this cutie!

The sentiment is from Sassy Girl and that awesome Fabulous word die is new as well!   There's one more day of inspiration headed your way tomorrow, so be sure to stop back then.   The entire release is available right NOW, so if you'd like to shop, head on over to the LID store!  Remember to leave comments along the hop for a chance to win the entire new release - how awesome would that be?!?

Lil' Inker Designs February Release - Day One

Hello there!   Today the Lil' Inker Design team is sharing projects featuring the brand new February release!   Be sure to hop along and leave comments at all of the stops for a chance to WIN the entire release!

Today's card features the absolutely adorable Dog Hugs stamp set.   Remember the super cute Cat Hugs stamp that was released a few months back?   Now the dog lovers have a stamp set all their own as well!
I stamped the Dog Hugs stamp and then cut around some of the dogs to make the scene a bit smaller.  Then I used the awesome die that cuts slits around the dog paws - how clever is that?   Then you are able to tuck in all of the cute accessories included in the stamp set!  I used some dog bones and hearts for this card, but there are a TON of accessories you can use!  Next I added details with a white gel pen and then coated the entire piece with Glossy Accents.   The fun background is an older cover-up die called Dotted Scallops.   I adhered it to a piece of cardstock that I used Distress Oxide Inks to blend a gradient on.   The little supporting sentiment finished off this card!

Hope you've enjoyed today's card - I've got more to share with you over the next few days, so be sure to stop back and leave a comment for a chance to WIN!   See you again tomorrow!

MFT February Release

Hello there!  I'm thrilled to be joining the amazing MFT designers and guests for this month's MFT & Friends, celebrating the brand new February release from My Favorite Things.

Today is the day all of the awesome February products are available for purchase and let me tell you....I had so much fun playing with everything!  I've got three cards to share with you, so let's get started!

First up is a card using a bunch of new goodies - the Super Dog stamps & dies, the City Block die and the Tag Builder Blueprints 7.   I created a shaker with the Tag Builder and adhered some of the City Block buildings inside along with some star & moon sequins I had in my stash.   To carry on the theme of the shaker on my card base, I used Distress Oxides to blend some blue shades onto the black cardstock.  Next I flicked some gesso onto the top portion of the inked cardstock piece to represent stars.  I added more of the City Block buildings to this piece as well.    The final step was to heat emboss the sentiment and add that cute superhero pup to the tag!

Next up is a card featuring the Raccoon Cutie Die, the sentiment flag from Tag Builder Blueprints 7, and the Birthday Cake dies.

The Raccoon Cutie is soooo easy to put together!   And he definitely is a cutie!   I added some detail with Glossy Accents and white gel pen.    A birthday cake, complete with shiny chocolate frosting, was the perfect complement to my little woodland friend's birthday greeting!

And finally, I couldn't resist using the City Block die again.   When I first saw this die, I knew exactly what I wanted to do - create an awesome sky background.  I broke out some orange, yellow, pink & red alcohol inks and created a gradient effect.  

I adhered the City Block die in it's entirety, and then stamped the greeting (part of the new Spectacular Birthday stamp set) with Archival ink and added the gorgeous scripty Birthday Wishes die (this month's Free with $60 Die-namics).

I had a fabulous time creating with this month's new release - and there is SO much more to see!   Head over to the MFT shop to check it out!   Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today - see you again soon!

More Than Words Can Say....Plus a SALE!

Good morning, crafty friends!  Today I've got a colorful Valentine card to share with you, and I also wanted to let you know about an awesome sale over at Lil' Inker Designs!   

I used the gorgeous Love You More Than Words die to create this card.   I started by using a couple shades of alcohol ink on some Yupo paper, then I die cut the heart from the inked Yupo - super simple!    I adhered the die cut onto a  black background that I added the fun stitched heart detail to with the new Quilted Stitched All Hearts die.    I used some of the leftover Yupo to create a mat for the stitched heart panel.

I hope you've enjoyed my card!    Now - about that sale I mentioned!   With a $25 purchase, you will receive the Love You Much border die for FREE!  And....there's a sale category over at LID as well, so be sure to check out lots of goodies at 25% off!  (Prices will reflect the discount in your shopping cart.)  Have a great week everyone!
