Lil' Inker Designs October Release - Day Two

We are back with our second day of design team blog hops for the Lil' Inker Designs October release.  Have you seen all of the fabulous new holiday inspired products in the  Lil' Inker Store?  You must check it out!  

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

For my first two cards today I am featuring the Oh, Deer Christmas stamps.  "Oh deer" is exactly what I thought when I saw this stamp set.




This may very well be my favorite card, ever.  I don't say that about my own cards often but this one, I love it!  It took a bit of time to do the paper piecing but it was totally worth it.  It almost looks like a snow globe to me.  I know exactly who this card will be going off to for Christmas but I think I'm going to make a few more of these to send!

Christmas is the only time you will see me using a ton of patterned paper.  I just can't resist it!


I love that you can just stamp this image and it still looks awesome!  I just heat embossed it in gold and added a red rhinestone so it looks like Rudolph.

Next up, is Ornamental Christmas & Ornamental Dies.




There are so many ways to use these fun stamps and dies.  I was kind of on a roll and made another rustic card, but I can't wait to make a little banner with all of these images hanging down in a variety of Christmas-y colors.



I'm the last stop on the hop today.  Head over to the Lil' Inker Designs store and shop 'til you drop!
See you tomorrow!

I love this deer head.
The paper behind it fits in so well - amazing to find something like that. I agree that the paper-piecing was well-worth the effort.
the second card is plain but still pretty. that deer head complements everything.
thanks for sharing.

I really like the way you made the stamp look like a snow globe! Very cool! I can't decide if I could pick just one or two of these stamps and dies. I could hit a homerun with all of these stamps and dies this year!

WOW AGAIN!! Your deer cards are so pretty! I love the gold embossed one. It shows how simple this stamp can be to use. Your red deer card might be one of my favorites ever too! I love all the work you did to it. It really does look like a snow globe. This is awesome! Loving everything!
