Lil' Inker Designs April Release: Day 3

 AmyPartyPachy2

Welcome to Day 3 of the Lil' Inker Designs April Release!  This release is FULL of amazing dies and stamps that will be perfect for those any occasion cards.......Have you checked out the new release yet????  You should have arrived from the  Karen's blog.   The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!!


I've been busy 'SHAKIN things up in my studio..........I have 2 shaker cards to share and a fun "girly" card!  So hang in there with me........this post is a bit long!

My first shaker card uses this awesome new Party Pachyderms set.  I love the elephant trend with stamps lately and this one does not disappoint!  This set has 3 elephants that are SOLID.  For those of you n0n-colorers out there.....this one is for you!  I've also used several other NEW die sets for this.......Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles and Speech Bubbles 2.

I thought it would be fun to create my shaker frame using the new Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles.  This is another MUST HAVE set for your stash!!!  Come on.....you know you need it!  :)  

One design note......I wanted my pachyderm to really stand out so I stamped it inside the shaker and then again on scratch cardstock cutting only the head out.  I mounted this and the speech bubble on top of the clear cardstock.  My shaker was filled with Watermelon, Aquamarine, Marigold, and Mini Star Sequins (from Pretty Pink Posh).

My second shaker card uses the Boxed Up Birthday Greeting die.  To create my rainbow greeting, I blended in a number of Copics at an angle and diecut my greeting.  The frame was made using the Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Squares.  I also used the original Stitched Mats: Rectangles for the stitched border around the perimeter of my card.  The balloon image (from Party Pachyderms) was stamped in Versamark.

Now since I decided to use some beads vs sequins for my shaker, I doubled up on the foam adhesive so that the beads would have room to shake shake shake!

My final card uses the AWESOME new Perky Posies die set!  Oh how I've waited for a stitched floral set from Lil' Inker Designs!!!  Thank you Laura!!!  I just love how some have straight stitches and some with curved details!

Ok......I wanted to talk some about all the dry embossed framing used here.  I've used the new Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles (3 smallest sizes).  I simply lined them all up on my cardfront and taped them down with painters tape.  I ran this through my Big Shot using 2 embossing mats.  I love the results!  (This is just another reason you NEED this new die set even if you have the original!)  Now, I must mention that sentiment......so bold!  It is from the new stamp set called Just Sayin'.

Hi Amy!! That elephant shaker just made me laugh! I love the other one too. I'm debating put a couple of shakers in with my Mother's Day greeting cards/gifts that I make for the moms and grandmas and this year my 2 girls that are moms too. Love all of those stitched dies too, great impact with them all embossed into the floral card. Great release, thanks...Paulette S.
