Lil’ Inker Designs Release Hop Day 3~

Welcome back to the Lil’ Inker Designs Release Hop!  I have a couple more cards for you today using Stitched Squares, Winter Greetings & the Snowflake Dies.  I absolutely adore these new products!  I love to make square cards and can’t sew…I can’t even thread a needle!  So the stitched squares add just that little extra umph! that takes the card over the edge.  Don’t believe me?  Take a look-see
happy holidays snowflake
This card uses the second and third largest square dies on the red and birch wood layers.  I cut out a square in the rustic cream and lined up the stitches on the birch wood after stamping it with small polka dots.  These are the two smallest snowflakes – the first layer cut out of birch wood and the second in cupid’s bow.  The sentiment is from the Holly Jolly set.  A couple of cream flat backed pearls finish this traditional colored card off.
Now for one that’s a little more bright and fun!

Say hello to raspberry fizz, hawaiian shores and royal velvet all on a smokey shadow base.  Yum!  The focal layer is up on foam tape over the white background.  The darling sentiment is from Winter Greetings.  The embroidery floss is in coordinating colors and is tied in knots to go with the CAS-ual Fridays challenge #81.
Ok, this is a hop, so you should comment for your chance to win a gift certificate to the LID store.  You should have arrived from Jen del Muro’s fabulous blog.  If not, bop on back to Laura Pryor’s to start off in the right direction.  Your next stop on this hop in the incomparable Emily Leiphart!  Have fun!  Thanks for stopping by!  :o) lyss
