Lil Inker Designs New Release Day 1

Oh my goodness, you guys!! I have been keeping this secret for so long and it has been SO HARD!!! I am SO very proud to announce that I am a new member of the Lil Inker Design Team!!!! (shrieking girly squeals of joy… don’t mind me…)

Stephanie Gold Golden Simplicity Lil Inker Designs

You should have arrived here from the super talented and lovely Chrissy Larson’s blog! I have been working all month getting new release projects ready for this hop (and I may have gotten a bit carried away) and I am so happy to share a few of them with you today!!

I thought I’d start out the hop using the Vintage Flower Stamps and Coordinating Dies! These flowers have so much detail, they are absolutely gorgeous! I used a teal ink to stamp the flowers and then wet a paint brush to blend the color in a bit. I used the same technique on the leaves with a green ink. The “happy birthday” sentiment is from the Vintage Label Sentiment Stamps and I made the background with Lil Inker’s Dotted Scallop Cover Up Die which is from a previous release.

I used the same techniques for this second card and finished it off with the Diamond Lace Cover Up Die (also from a previous release).

Aren’t those flower stamps beautiful?? For my last project today I made a little pillow box (I LOVE to use these as gift card holders because you can dress them up and make them so dang cute!!) and fancied it up for a nice gift for Mother’s Day or the like. I used the same Vintage Flower Stamp and Die sets and also the Vintage Label Sentiments and coordinating Die. I love this Label Sentiment set. You could use that baby on cards, on gifts as a gift tag, for scrapbooking, it is SO versatile.
