Lil' Inker Designs October Release - Day One


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

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

This month you'll find all of the products you'll need for holiday card making this year.  There are some super cute products, the deer in the header, LOVE!

Before we move on to Christmas, we have one more new product for Fall, Leafy Greeting & Leaf Love die set.





These leaves were so fun to make.  I was going for a nature look and smooshing with Fall colors seemed like the perfect technique to use.  To do this, I pressed Distress Inks onto an acrylic block, then spritzed it with water and pressed watercolor paper into the ink.  I did this several times until I was happy with the result.   Once the paper was dry, I die cut the leaves from my favorite spots.  Some areas got muddy, so I chose the more colorful portions!  I added the leaves to a Rounded Rectangle panel that I also ran through my Big Shot with the Stitched Woodgrain Cover Up die.  All of these stitches make me happy! 

How about a super CAS Christmas card?  I've really been trying to make my Christmas cards flat and have the ideas easilty replicated for mass production.  I think this one fits the bill using All the Christmas You'll Ever Need & Oh My Ornament Dies.






Classic, clean and simple design.  The stitched bow is just fantastic, such a subtle yet beautiful touch.  No bulky ribbons or bows here.  Perfect for mailing!



Time to hop along.  Next up is Chrissy, head on over to her blog to see what she's done with the September release products!
