Lil' Inker Designs October Release - Day One


The fun begins today with the first of three days of blog hops for the Lil' Inkers October release.  All of the new, amazing products are available NOW in the Lil' Inker StoreYou must check it out!   This release is a combo of both holiday and non-holiday products, something for everyone!

Before we get to that though, today we say goodbye to Heather Campbell.  She is such an inspiration and will most certainly be missed.  She is joining us today with one more post as part of the Lil' Inkers team.

With every goodbye comes a hello...I'm thrilled that Chrissy Larson & Laura Williams are joining the Lil' Inker Designs team!!!!  They are going to knock your socks off with their talent.

You should have arrived here from Mary Dawn Quirindongo's Blog.  If not, head to the Lil' Inker Store Blog to start from the beginning.

Today I'm bringing on the bling.  I love to use glimmer paper on my holiday cards and that is exactly what I've done here.  My first card features the amazing Baubled Christmas Tree Die, along with Stitched Mats:  Rectangles and the Quilted Stitched Pattern.




It's hard to see in this photo, but the tree and stars were cut from glimmer paper.
 Then the tree was decorated with lots of sequins and rhinestones!


I didn't think this card even needed a sentiment, the tree says it all.

This next card is my favorite card for this release!  It uses the Big Christmas Stamp Set (which I have been using a TON) and the Seasonal Stars Die set.




Silver and navy is such a classy combination and one of my favorites to use at Christmas time.  Here I heat embossed the sentiment from Big Christmas with Silver Embossing Powder.  The Seasonal Stars were die cut from both Dazzling Diamonds and Silver glimmer paper, then layered with a dimensional.  A scattering of Sparkling Clear sequins finished this design.   


Time to keep hopping along now.  Next up is Sarah Jay, so head over to her blog because you know she'll have something AMAZING to show you.  Make sure to leave comments along the way too, because Laura is giving away 3 - $15 Store Credits!

Have fun hopping & shopping!  See you tomorrow!
