Lil' Inker Designs August Release-Day 1

Welcome, welcome! So excited you are joining us for the August release from Lil' Inker Designs. I had so much fun playing around with all the gorgeous new stamps and dies. I just know you will love what we have to share.


I am kicking things off with two cards using LOTS of the new products. Both cards use the gorgeous new floral sentiment set, Encouraging Words. The sentiments are wonderful and I adore the flowers included in the set as well. This first card I made the flowers and sentiment the focal point. I stamped them in black ink and used my Copics to color them up. I used the Encouraging Word Dies to cut them out. 

I mounted them onto a Stitched Mats-Circles dies. Check out that background.....isn't it soooo pretty and really fun?? It's the newest Cover Up-Hello Beautiful (it coordinates with the Hello Beautiful stamp set. We loved the design, so Laura made it into a bigger background for all of us). Here's a closer look at the details. 


While I had the Encouraging Words stamp out, I decided to create a customized background. I then used the Silly Stitched Rectangles to create the panels. I then used the gorgeous new Fringe Scallop Tag Die and cut it from vellum, so it didn't completely hide the background I stamped. 


To the top of that I used the Ever Word stamps and Ever Word die to create the sentiment for the card. I loooooove the giant die cut word. I sponged on some dark coral ink to give it an ombre' effect. 


Soooo, you have a chance to WIN the ENTIRE August Release!!

  1. Hi Lisa ~ Your cards are both beautifully done but I especially love the way you've used the Encouraging Words stamps with the background die. We could all use more encouraging words these days and these stamps are perfect for that. Thanks for sharing. ~HUGS~
