Lil' Inker Designs Release: Day 1

Amy_Baubled_MerryChristmasWordDie

Welcome to Day 1 of the Lil' Inker Designs October Release!  This release is FULL of amazing dies and stamps for this holiday season.......are you ready?  You should have arrived from Joy Taylor's blog.   Guess what??  The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!!



I wanted to share this awesome new die called Baubled Christmas Wreath.  There are SO many ways you can use this!  I did a bit of watercolor........starting with a die cut wreath, I placed it on my cardstock and adhered lightly using it as a mask.  This die just screamed to use retro colors........using various Distress Inks, I watercolored all the insides of the circles and let dry.  After they were dry, I used a shimmer watercolor to paint over the top of them.  It gives such a gorgeous sheen!  (I did the same technique with the new Merry Christmas Word Die)  Once everything was dry, I removed my "mask" and adhered a black Baubled Christmas Wreath.  My sentiment was adhered over the wreath.  My wreath panel was die cut using the Stitched Mats: Rounded Rectangles and mounted with foam adhesive to a white notecard.

Next up, I have a "punny" card to share using the new Moody Santa stamps.  You can make him angry Santa, happy Santa, grumpy Santa......man are these so cute!  I created a little winter wonderland scene using the Speech Bubble Die Set and the Border Builders Die Set.  My background was made using the Quilted Stitched Pattern Die....one of my all-time FAVORITES!!!  I stamped a sentiment from the new set, All the Christmas You'll Ever Need 2, onto the speech bubble.  I colored my Santa with Copics and adhered with foam adhesive.
