Lil' Inker Designs January Release - Day 1


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

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

Love is in the air this month, with lots of fun products perfect for Valentine's Day.  Plus fun dies, paper and other goodies that you are sure to love.

Today it's all about Valentine shaker cards.  My first card features Lovie Friends Stamps & Dies, the Dual Dotted Hearts and Silly Stitched die sets and the Love You Paper Pack.









I was able to combine a ton of the new products on this one card.  The little bear reminds me of puffy stickers from when I was a kid.  I even added some glossy accents to the heart to make him look even more like it :)   To stamp the background, I drew fine pencil lines and then stamped each of the sentiments repeatedly.  This faux shaker shows how easy and effective it is when you take advantage of negative space.

My next card uses the Love You Greeting die and well as the Love You paper pack.  It has the same basic design as my first card. but this one is a true shaker.




To make this card, I first die cut the Love You paper using the Rounded Rectangle dies.  Then I centered the Love Greeting die near the top of the rectangles and die cut it again to make a window.  I layered a black greeting behind the window, a bit off-set, to make the greeting pop. 

Make sure that you have left comments along the hop.  Laura is giving away 3 $15 Gift Certificates to the Lil' Inker Store!  woohoo

I'm the last stop on the hop, head on over to the Lil' Inker Designs store and shop 'til you drop!  



See you tomorrow!
