Lil’ Inker Designs April Release Day 1 ~

April113BlogHop

Welcome to the April release for Lil’ Inker Designs!!  We have a super fun stamp and die set we’re introducing today called Mom & Dad Sentiments.  The dies are ‘Mom’ and ‘Dad’ word dies with fun little twists to them.  I am soooooo in love with these word dies!!  They are just so awesome.  Check it out!

Isn’t the @ sign for the ‘a’ perfect??  Totally adore it!  I used the negative die cut with a scrap strip of patterned paper to highlight this fabulous die.  ‘You’re the best’ is from the accompanying sentiment stamp set – such a wonderful, clean font that pairs well with everything.

To begin, I impressed the soft stone layer with a linen impression plate to give it some texture.  Next, the sentiment was embossed above where the die cut was going to go.  Very simple, but the words say it all.  Here’s a little peek of the products I used today
