Lil' Inker February Release Blog Hop - Day One

 Today is the day we've been waiting for!  Lil' Inkers February release is now available!!  The release includes 2 new stamp sets, 2 new dies sets & 2 new individual dies.

You should have arrived here from Kristen Foreman's blog.  If not, head to the Lil' Inker Store Blog to start from the beginning.

Today I have two Valentine cards for you.  These aren't just any card either, they each have a little something extra.

First up is a photo card using the much anticipated Stitched Hearts Dies!  You KNOW you've been waiting for these.



I paired the Stitched Hearts with the Instant Camera Die and the Love Things stamp set.  I did a little inking with Fresh Snow ink for the chalkboard effect.  To keep my card CAS, I kept the hearts on the right to ensure plenty of white space.  This card will be for my hubby from the kids :)

My next card is perfect for kids or teachers for Valentine's Day, or any occasion by changing the sentiment and papers.  How adorable & CLEVER is this Give a Hoot Gift Card Holder?



I added some Stitched Hearts to this card too and stamped the wing with the xoxo sentiment from Love Things.  The Give a Hoot Gift Card Holder can be used on it's own or you can attach it to a card front (like I did here), add it too a gift bag etc!  I LOVE it!

Time to keep hopping along now.  Next up is the talented Sarah Jay, so head over to her blog.  Make sure to leave comments along the way because Laura is giving away 3 - $15 Store Credits!

Have fun hopping & shopping!  See you tomorrow!
