LID:: February 2017 Release:: Day 2


Welcome to the second day of the Lil' Inker Designs February 2017 Release Showcase...full of innovative, fun and beautiful items! Once again, we have a fabulous hop for you featuring new stamps and dies perfect for spring and really, every day! If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from the ever so talented Jessica's Blog! (Visit the Lil' Inker Design's Blog for the full link up.)


My first card today showcases a variety of new products. First, I just adore the background here, created with the Quilted Stitched So Sunny Die. With this die, it is so easy to create a beautiful backdrop for all other fabulous dies and stamps! I then used the Sweet Celebration Stamps and Dies to decorate the card front with a wreath, flowers and vellum banner. Finally, I die cut the sentiment using the Celebrate Word Die. I can see myself using these products for many, many future cards that celebrate many events!

My next card is special because my oldest son created the background using the ink blending technique for the fabulous Rustic Spring Stamps and coordinating Rustic Spring Dies.


I die cut and colored the sweet bicycle, basket and flowers as well as the word happy and arranged them on the inked background using Rustic Spring Stamps and coordinating Rustic Spring Dies. I then added a double banner from the Sweet Celebration Dies. The panel was bordered in kraft and adhered to a white card base. Simple, but oh so fun. I am pleased to say that my son liked the outcome as well!

Here's a look at the new release products showcased in my two projects today:




It is with pleasure that I get to send you to the talented Lisa Henke's Blog as the next stop along the hop. I hope you get a chance to visit the Lil' Inker Design Store now as all the NEW FEBRUARY 2017 RELEASE products are already up at the store!
