Lil’ Inker Designs Release Hop Day 3 ~

February Blog Hop Graphic

Hello!  Welcome back to the final day of the Lil’ Inker Designs February Release hop!  You should’ve arrived here from Alicia’s wondrous blog.  You can bop right back to lovely Laura’s to get started off right if need be though.

First off, a little card to encourage and lift the spirits using the new Cloudy Sky die and Stay Beautiful stamps.

lid deep breath

I started by cutting the clouds multiple times on a piece of vellum sliding the die from side to side to get a different cut every time.  The vellum is layered over pattern paper with foam tape cleverly covered by some stitched clouds. I thought the sentiment paired well with the symbolism of letting a balloon go, so I stamped it on one of the larger clouds.  The balloon is from the mini party set and uses some reddish pattern paper to further carry out that whole symbolism thing.  The inside is stamped with another sentiment from the set, “You’ll fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life,” along with a couple of the vellum clouds {with stitching detail} to piece it all together.

Last, but certainly not least, are the Anytime Tags.  These little beauties not only feature the signature stitching and a wonderful rounded design, but offer up two separate choices for adding or leaving out the hang hole.  I chose to do a layered tag to add to a birthday gift bag.  This little cutie is Birthday Owl {sorry, he’s out of stock! :( } all Copic colored up to match the paper.  The sentiment is from Surprise! – I just left the ‘belated’ part off when stamping.  Now, if I were up and up with trends, I would’ve added some sequins here, but alas, I am not a trendy gal.  Some colored rhinestones fit the bill for me!  I can see myself making a lot of these in the future!  I get to color but don’t have all the muss and fuss of making a full blown card. 

Ok, thanks for sticking around here! 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!!
