Lil' Inker Designs: Release Day Blog Hop!


Yay............Today is RELEASE DAY for Lil' Inker Designs!  Have you enjoyed this week of projects using the newest Lil' Inker stamps and dies?  We certainly hope so!  If you are on this blog hop, you should have arrived from Sarah's blog.

I have 2 cards to share with you today.  My first card uses Holly Jolly in a traditional way using the holly leaves paired with this fabulous pattern paper from Authentique.  I actually bought this paper for another project but I haven't started on that just yet.  I'll be sure to show you pics when I do!



I thought the sentiment was perfect to use with this pattern paper and fits perfectly on the strip wtih some die cut Holly Leaves and Berries!  Just a close up photo of the tiny signature perforated details of the leaves and berries!  Love!



My second card uses the Jingle Joy set of dies.....specifically the bell.  Boy, I tell you when Laura and Ariana look at details, they certainly get them right!  The bell die even features a tiny band to layer over the main bell image......makes for even more dimension!  Here I've die cut the bell 3 times with glitter paper in an aqua color.



My color scheme came from this gorgeous snowflake paper by fancy pants design: Saint Nick collection.   



There is some Lil' Inker news that I have to share.........this will be Julie's last posting with Lil' Inker Designs.  Her time with us has brought us to this great place in the industry and it's time for her to move on.  I wish her the best of luck and many thanks!  :)

Now let's keep moving along on the blog hop to Teresa's blog and don't forget to leave comments as Laura is giving away 2 gift certificates to the Lil' Inker Store somewhere along the way!  Have a great time!
