Lil' Inker December Release Blog Hop - Day 1


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! Lots of on-trend goodies and classic Lil' Inker style.

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's first card features the Faceted Cover Up Die and All About Ampersands.






Is this design not brilliant?  Sarah Jay designed this die and hid a heart in the design!  Holy Smokes, I love this!! 

This next card uses the Girl's Best Friend Stamp Set & Die and the Long & Skinny Rectangles.







What a fun set of products to play with!   Here I die cut three Long & Skinny Rectangles and adhered them to my card base.  I die cut the Girl's Best Friend die from Glimmer Paper then adhered that using liquid glue.  The stardust (not sure what that's called :) was heat embossed.   Lots of detail, yet still CAS!

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!

Stunning! You're made a pretty compelling 'argument' that "might want' will become 'must have' with that first die. WOW!

pcm said...

I love what you did with the heart in the faceted die! So neat to use the pieces popped up like that! Really enjoy the CAS look of your 2nd card and the color combo is very pretty!

MMmmm! Hadn't noticed that "sparkle" stamp (reminds me of when "Tinkerbell waves her magic wand" in the old kids' books-on-tape). It really adds that little extra something to these facet dies and stamps.
