Welcome to the second day of the Lil' Inker Designs April 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 features an adorable owl from Hootie Patootie, isn't that the cutest name ever for the cutest owls ever?! I also am showcasing the diverse Stitched Chevron Border Die. The bottom front of this card has a chevron edge to it, and I layered some more chevron strips in roses and pinks halfway up the card. The top half of the card features a vine stamp from the newBest Blooms Stamp Set.
The most fun part about this card is the cute owl stamped and colored with the Hootie Patootie Stamp Set and coordinating Hootie Patootie Die Set. I then created an action wobbler with thin, coiled wire. Here' a super quick video of it in action, that just makes me smile! (Let's hope this works, shall we? It's my first video!)
My next project also happens to be interactive (this release was sooooo much fun!). I created a shaker gift card holder featuring the Apple of my Eye Stamp Set and Apple Shaker Die.
I started by creating my gift card holder by die cutting some kraft and white paper with the previously released Stitched Gift Card Holder Die. The top flap of the die holds the stamped sentiment from Apple of my Eye Stamp Set. I then constructed the apple shaker with the Apple Shaker Die and it couldn't have been easier to do! I know my youngest will be so excited to give this little, fun gift to one of his teachers.
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 APRIL 2017 RELEASE products are already up at the store!
