Lil' Inker Designs February Release: Day 2


Welcome back to the Lil' Inker Designs February release!!!  Did you enjoy the blog hop yesterday?  So many projects to look at!!  You should have arrived from the talented Alyssa's blog.......but if not, you can start back at the beginning at the Lil' Inker Designs blog.


I've used some some past products paired with some new ones for my first card.  I started by making my own stencil (since they are all the rage right now!) from some scratch cardstock with the new Cloudy Sky Die.  There are mini clouds and ones that have the LID stitching!  Be still my heart!


I began to sponge some white pigment ink from Wplus9 over my Cloudy Sky stencil onto a blue Stitched Mats: Rectangle.  I moved and shifted my stencil down my rectangle until it was full of little clouds!  My sentiment is from a new set called It's today, right? and was stamped right over my clouds in the bottom left.  I thought this sentiment was perfect for a birthday (even though this new stamp set is anniversary themed) so I paired it up with the Mini Party Die Set using the mini balloons!

Using some amazing new Anytime Tag Dies, I've die cut one and stamped the boxing glove images (done with some masking to make the heart pink) from the Stay Beautiful stamp set.  I just LOVE this sentiment.....so perfect for a little pick me up card!!!  Laura has included several little tag hole dies to add if you want or you can use the "tag" as a focal image too.
