Lil' Inker Designs January New Release Blog Hop {Day 3}



Welcome to Day 3 of the Lil' Inker Designs January New Release!!  You should have arrived from Laura Pryor's blog and if I must say.......did you check out her post yesterday??  I am in LOVE with the LOVE frame she made with the new dies!  Go check it out and leave her a comment as she did a FABULOUS job with it!  I am so excited to hear what you think so far about Flags and Tags.  It's a true staple and a MUST HAVE set in your collection.  Today, however we are showing the newest addition to the 2 Cute Ink collection:  Cutie Cat.  Here's the full set:



I think my favorite part of this new set are those adroable flowers.  Particularly the center one!  But I also can not resist that Cutie Cat face!  Here I've chosen to color him in with various Copics and cut out the image.  I layered the new BIG Flag die over some DP from FancyPantsDesigns that coordinates with my colored image. 


Call me crazy but for some dimension, I colored and cut out the flowers and popped them up!  My Cutie Cat was layered over the tag die showcased in my post yesterday.  I love how it looks like he's sitting on a little rug!  hehe  I've also stamped a tiny image included in the Flags and Tags stamp set onto the bottom of the tag for fun. 

My sentiment (also from Cutie Cat) was stamped half on one part of the flag and half on the other part.  I love this for a different look to the sentiment!  The last thing I wanted to point out was the big Sentiment Flag die.......do you see the subtle yet embossed line around the die?  This new die DOES that when used with the embossing mat!!  Here is what Laura said about this new die:

"The oversized sentiment flag is a uniquely designed die. The die was designed much like a frame and then overlayed with a clear backer. It closely resembles a nesting die yet it has the addition of the clear backer which is really neat as it allows for perfect placement when cutting and it even embosses! Also, because the die was created with the clear backer it allowed us to keep manufacturing costs lower which means reduced costs for our customers. It's really a win win!"



I want to extend a huge THANK YOU for everyone stopping by and leaving such sweet comments on my projects for Day 2.  Remember that Laura is giving away 2 prizes if you continue on this hop and leave comments along the way each day!  Your next stop is one of my good friends, Jen Carter, and I'm sure she is going to show something awesome like she always does!

****Are you all wondering what the BONUS goodies are that will be released on Friday?  Well, I got them in my little hands just today and you will LOVE them.  hehe  Perfect new additions for all your Valentine's.****

Thanks for stopping by and we'll see you tomorrow for Day 4 of the Lil' Inker Designs New Release!
