Lil’ Inker Designs Release Hop Day 1 ~

February Blog Hop Graphic

  Welcome to the February release hop for Lil’ Inker Designs!  You should be excited!!  We have some fabulous goodies to share with you over the next few days.  Hopefully you’ve found your way here from the amazing Alicia’s blog.  If not, bop on back to Laura’s to get started off right!

Let’s start out with a set of stitched dies that I happen to know will make quite a few crafty ladies out there very happy!  May I have the pleasure of introducing Stitched Hearts…

I chose some Echo Park Love Story paper and a zesty pink to showcase the dual stitching of these dies that is exclusive to Lil’ Inkers.  The sentiment is pieced together from the Hamster Cupid set.

The stitching on the pattern paper gets lost in the business of the design but looks oh.so.fabulous on the pink!  A quick wooden heart and button tied with twine finish off the outside so that I didn’t feel like it was too clean and simple.

Ok, you’ve stuck around here long enough.  Head on over to Amazing Amy's fantastic blog!  Don’t forget to comment along the way for your chance at three $15 gift certificates to Lil’ Inker Designs!!  Thanks for stopping by!
