LID:: October Release:: Day 2



I love this time of year when new stamps are released for the holidays! It's Day Two of the Lil' Inker Designs October Release. As usual, we have a fabulous hop for you featuring innovative stamps and dies with a holiday theme! You should have arrived from Jen's Blog!


My first project today features two new products, the innovative Baubled Christmas Tree Die and Stitched Mats: Rounded Rectangles! I die cut the bauble tree from a piece of patterned paper that first had been die cut into a Rounded Rectangle with the LID Exclusive Double Stitching. Then I had a bit of fun finding some coordinating patterned paper to stick behind the die cut tree for the leaves and trunk. I finished the card without a greeting and tied it with some May Arts Natural Burlap String.



My next card features three products from this release! I started by die cutting the background from white cardstock with the very beautiful Cover Up Die: Snowflakes. Such intricate designs but so easy to use! Then I adhered that to a blue base and added some snow hills created from the Border Builders Die Set. Finally, before attaching the last snow hill, I added the sentiment via a die cut from the Stitched Script: Holiday Word Dies! Talk about innovative, clever and oh so cool!

Your next stop is Kristen! Lil' Inker Designs has added two new members to their design team. Stop by the blogs Christine and Laura during the Blog Hop to welcome them.

Don't forget to comment along the hops, as there are three $15 gift certificates up for grabs to the Lil' Inker Designs Store!
