Lil' Inker Designs June Release - Day 1


The fun begins today with the first of three days of blog hops for the Lil' Inker Designs June release.  All of the new, amazing products are available NOW in the Lil' Inker Store.  


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

The June release is filled with products for babies, grads & more.  Today I'm focusing on Grads!





I absolutely love Go Confidently and the Sunburst die together for graduation.  To make the sunset background, I pressed Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed Distress ink onto an acrylic block and then spritzed it with water and smooshed my paper onto the ink.  I did this repeatedly until I was happy with the result.  I heat set the ink which made fun watermarks.

My next card shows a few of the new dies.  I'm so loving the Dotted Squares and Rectangles!





This time I went with a party theme.  I combined the Circle Banners with sequins to create a Faux Shaker card.  The Dotted Squares are perfect for shakers, windows and layers!!!  The color palette is suited to both male and female graduates in any field.

Time to keep hopping along now.  Next up is Lea Lawson, I've seen her projects and they are fantastic!   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!
