Lil’ Inker Designs Release Hop Day 1 ~

Welcome to Day 1 of the October Release Hop for Lil’ Inker Designs!!  We have some fabulous new holiday goodies for you!!  This is a hop so hopefully you’ve found your way here from Alicia’s blog.  If not, comment here first, and then bop on back to Laura’s blog to get started off right!

First up is the Cover Up Die: Christmas.  I.am.in.love.with.this.die!  I only wish I owned a Vagabond so I didn’t have to crank it through the little bug though.  LOL!  This die is so fabulously trendy and fun!  To me it embodies the the whole chalkboard trend in a fun, fashionable way.

Don’t you just love it?!?  All the fabulous fonts, sayings and snowflakes! LOVE!  I wanted it to really pop off the card, so I cut it out in bright white.  The card base is a beautiful red embossed with the old Swiss Dots embossing folder and swiped with white ink.  I added a wooden snowflake die cut from the Snowflake dies tied up with twine and jingle bells. 

My second card today uses the new Jolly & Joyful Sentiments stamp set, Jolly word die and Snowflake dies for an easy to mass produce card.

I just stamped the sentiment after die cutting, and popped it all up over some pattern paper.  Easy peasy, lemon squeezey!  

It’s your turn to head on over to Amy’s blog.  Before you go, leave a comment here for your chance to win some Lil’ Inker Designs yummies!!  Thanks for stopping by!
