Lil' Inker Designs October Release - Day Three

It's the last day of the Lil' Inker Design Team Blog Hops.  If you haven't checked out the new release make sure you do so, everything is available now in the Lil' Inker Store

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.

For the past two days I've been sharing Christmas cards, today I'm moving away from Christmas and showing you designs that can be used all year long!  My first card uses the I'm All, You're All stamp set which I've pair with the Balloon Dies.




This was such a fun card to make, a fun sentiment set certainly deserves a fun technique.  I painted with watercolor paints on watercolor paper that I die cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies.  Once dry I stamped my sentiment.  The balloon dies and stars were covered with Wink of Stella for a little added shimmer and shine.

My next little project features the Eat More Donuts stamp set, Donuts Die set and the Limited Edition Stitched Gift & Note Card Holder.






How cute is this?  I'm thinking this is perfect for Dunkin' Donuts gift cards!!!  Speaking of donuts...ugh, I don't usually get personal on my blog, BUT I'm dying for a donut friends!  I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in May and have done amazingly well eating gluten free (the only "medicine" for a celiac).  I feel great...except that I'm craving donuts something terrible!  My sweet husband has offered to make them for me, I don't know that it's the same.  If there are any fellow Celiacs out there that can point me to a donut, I'd be forever grateful ;)  Until then I'll just keep stamping donuts and dreaming about them....

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!

I hope you've enjoyed my release projects!  I'm excited to start seeing some of these projects popping up around blog land!

FUN & FABULOUS cards!!!
LOVE the donut with the sparkling sprinkles - sad that you can't eat them, if it is any comfort, I can't eat them either, but that is purely for dieting. I cannot imagine the change you must have made to your diet since diagnosis. Hope that the ones your husband makes are tasty :)
As for your AWESOME birthday card, LOVE your BEAUTIFUL watercolor background and the "I'm All, You're All" sentiments are SO MUCH FUN :)
THANK YOU for sharing your CREATIVE INSPIRATION!!!

Very pretty watercolor background and love the donut card. My daughter in law was diagnosed with celiac disease around the same time and we are still getting used to making sure there is gluten free food for her.
