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 the Lil' Inker Store Blog.  If not, head over there and start the hop from the beginning.

I still have two more cards to share with you today.  Both are CAS and perfect for mailing.  The first uses the Merry & Bright Holiday Greeting Die.




I love that this is a peek-a-boo die.  When I first got it out to use, I thought it would cut out the square shape as well.  Once I realized it was a peek-a-boo, I was like, "ohhhhhh".  I can't wait to play with this some more, so many possibilities.  I used 1/4 inch stripes of glimmer paper to make my own pattern in the background.  Oh boy, I was covered in glitter head to toe but it was worth it :)

Next, I used the Christmas Word Tag Trio to make a very clean & graphic card!



Rather than use the word dies as tags, I snipped off the loops and just used the words.  The ability to do that makes these super versatile.  I placed the words on a white panel that was cut using the Stitched Rectangles, then I ran it through the Big Shot with the Quilted Stitched Pattern Cover Up.

That's it for me!  Next on the hop is the Amy Kolling.  Head over to the store and place your favorites from the release in your cart.


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

I am blown away by how gorgeous the Wish Hope Joy card turned out. I love the stunning sparkle of the Merry and Bright card but the simplicity of the red and green is just beautiful!
