Lil' Inker Designs {January Release} Day 1

 
  
Welcome to the Lil' Inker Designs January Release!  This month we have some fabulous new products!  You should have arrived from Alyssa Scritchfield's blog.....if not, please start back at the beginning at the Lil' Inker Designs blog.
 
My card uses the new BALLOON image stamps!  Yes, I said balloon images.....they coordinate with the previously released balloon dies!!!  Yippee!  My little "coordinating" heart is just in love!  I've done some basic masking with the new images in a variety of bright colors.

 I wanted to continue the fun on the inside of the card.  So, I used a single die cut balloon and stamping a coordinating balloon through the opening!  Here's a peek at the inside....

 Both sentiments are found in the Balloon Builders Stamps Set along with those balloon images!  Here is a closeup of some of the balloon patterns included......

 I wanted to share a quick tip about my banner layered behind the #7 die cut.  I used the Flags & Tags die and just cut the width I wanted, taped with Washi, and die cut the "flag" end!  You can get soo much more use out of this die this way!
 
 
 
 
Now we need you to hop around because there are a couple of $10 credits up for grabs this release!
I so hope you enjoy the Lil' Inker Designs blog hop......your next stop is Debby Hughes!
See you back here tomorrow!
