Hello! Super excited today to share some of the brand new special Mini Release from Lil' Inker Designs! We are celebrating with a HUGE hop and lots of special guests today! You should have arrived here from Jill Hawkins - feel free to head to the Lil' Inker Designs Blog to start at the beginning if you just happened along on the hop.
I have three cards to share with you using the new items - I'm starting with these two using two big beautiful new sentiment sets - I can't tell you how much I LOVE these! They are gorgeous and so versatile - it has been super fun to see all the things the Design Team have been making with them! I used them both with the same technique and different color combos.
First up I used You Will Never Regret Being Kind and a blue color scheme - I love these tones together! I also can't help but think of Jennifer McGuire with this particular sentiment, and which might be why I unconsciously gravitated toward these colors that I associate with her blog! :)
And then I used Be the Reason That Someone Smiles Today and a yellow and orange color scheme - made me think of sunshine, which always makes me smile! :)
For each of these cards, I masked out a square panel, blended two colors of distress inks, splashed on some water and white paint splatters, then peeled off my masks and let them dry. Once they dried, I stamped my sentiments on, using my MISTI to stamp a couple times for a nice dark impression over the distress ink. I added some accents with a white gel pen on the design (filled in dots, added stripes, etc...) and then a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins and a coordinating colored card base.
Next up, I have a card perfect to send to a friend who has lost a treasured pet:
I love the new Cover Up Die - Stitched Clouds! It is so fun and clever - not to mention easy! I used ot for my base, then die cut an Instant Camera Die in black to create my focal point. I used this to heat emboss a sentiment, then stamped the dog from Angel Pets with his little wings on kraft paper and colored with Copics before cutting out with the Coordinating Dies.
I also used a white gel pen to add some accents to this, then mounted everything with foam adhesive, adding another extra sentiment that I snipped apart to separate. The little paw print was perfect to stamp around the background to finish.
