LID:: June 2017 Release:: Day 2


Welcome to the second day of the Lil' Inker Designs June 2017 Release Showcase...full of innovative, fun and beautiful items! Once again, we have a fabulous hop for you featuring new stamps and dies that'll make you swoon! 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 project features some of my favorite products from this release, the beautiful Blossoms and Banners Stamp Set, the coordinating Blossoms and Banners Dies. I paired these two with some older products,...the classic Quilted Stitched Pattern Cover Up Die and Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangles.


I started by embossing the front of a kraft card base with the Quilted Stitched Pattern Cover Up Die and ran a piece of pink cardstock through as well using a piece from Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangles. Then came the beautiful focal point! I stamped one of the banners from Blossoms and Banners Stamp Set, and die cut it with the coordinating Blossoms and Banners Dies. Then I stamped the sentiment, also from Blossoms and Banners Stamp Set, and then stamped some of the flowers on various shades of pink cardstock and fussy cut them to attach as highlights to the banner image. What an easy to create card that is so beautiful (in my humble opinion.)


I was really loving the way pink looked on kraft, so I used the same palette for this card. First, I die cut a kraft panel with the Dual Dotted Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a white card panel. Then, with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink I stamped a custom sentiment from the new Lovely And Sweet Stamps. What a quick and easy way to create a focal point! I added a few hints of black, and white as well to finish the card off.

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

  15. You had me a kraft paper. It's my all time favorite! But I really love the layout of the first car. The addition of the pink die cut really grounds it. Love the stamping you did on the second card. I love seeing how this set can fill up a card front. So well done!! Thanks!!
