Hi there! Welcome back to the second day of the Lil’ Inker Designs February release hop! The fabulous Alicia should have sent you on your way here, but you can always start at the wonderful Laura’s blog to begin this little shindig correctly. Let’s start today off with a fun new die that is sure to become one of my all time favorites – Gift a Hoot
Ha! Isn’t she great?! Give a Hoot is a fun gift card holder die that can be used all alone or on a card like I’ve chosen. I used a textured gray as the body along with some pale lavender and turquoise for the eye area. The buttons as eyes are a fun little addition although the die comes with a smaller circle cut that could be used as well. The speech bubble is one of those wood veneer shapes. I painted mine with a combo of white acrylic paint and Mister Huey mists. Slip in a gift card, tie it up with some coordinating embroidery floss and voila!
My second card today uses the new It’s Today, Right? set. This card has been knockin’ around the old noggin since I first saw the preview of the set. All I could imagine was a comic strip, so I set out to make just that!
I used Stitched Squares to mat out each part of the happy couple’s relationship and paper pieced her dress as well. The heart die cuts are left over from the Floating Hearts die. I save all those little pieces! The ring is covered in Icicle Stickles for a ton of sparkle in real life. Quirky and cute! Love this set! It has great sentiments too in that fun font.
