Lil' Inker Designs May Release Blog Hop {Day3}

More fun from Lil' Inker Designs today! Are you ready? You should have arrived from Laura's blog.  I am super excited to share a new product to the LID line-up.....Texture Plates! One side has a Woodgrain "Frame" and one side has a Plain "Frame".  This texture plate works with any die cut machine using your usual embossing pads but for a limited time you can get them from LID if you don't have any!




I have 2 cards to share today. First up, is the new Texture Plate paired with the new small Bow Die. It's not too early to make your Father's Day cards and that's just what I did! I've used the Woodgrain Texture Plate to "frame" a Father's Day ribbon! The tails of the ribbon were stamped with the Houndstooth pattern from Flags and Tags (previously released). I love how this turned out!!  My sentiment is also from this set but I just masked off the words to make them fit on my award ribbon!

My second card focuses on the Plain side of the plate. This card is for my MIL....she will LOVE it! I've used this side to "frame" a family photo taken recently on vacation. I've kept this simple for the sheer fact I didn't want to take away from the photo.

That's it from me today but I will have another card tomorrow using this Texture Plate for a very CAS card.  Until then there is lots more inspiration from the DT showing off these dies so go check them out! Remember the prizes? This month's prizes will be a $10 store credit and a Sentiment Flags Additions set. Oh, and before I forget.....these and all the other goodies we are releasing are available RIGHT NOW! Check it out HERE.

Your MIL will love that card for sure! It is perfect!! I also love how you added the tails of the bow on the first card hanging down to make the ribbon! What a fabulous idea! I also like how you trimmed the frame down to a smaller size! It looks great that way!

Christina said...

The embossed frames are so awesome! I LOVE your idea to make a Mother's Day card with a family photo--what a beautiful keepsake.

Mary-Anne V said...

love your card and frame...so pretty.

Makalah said...

That texture plate would work so well for dramatic matting in a scrapbook layout! Genius!

canadian_liner said...

Great job of showing how versatile those texture plates can be! Both projects are great. I especially like the idea of framing/matting your own photos--could be used for cards or scrapbooking.

Mary J said...
