I created this light and airy Christmas card by first adding texture to the card base using the Lil Inker Designs Stitched Quatrefoil Cover Up Die. Next I added a piece of vellum with the “NOEL” (from the Filled Christmas Tree Stamps) stamped repeatedly across it in cream. I used my Tiny Attacher to adhere the vellum so it would flow at the bottom.

The main sentiment is from the All The Christmas You’ll Ever Need 2 set.

The card is finished off with some Natural Twine and red and white striped curling ribbon (from the Papertrey Ink Wonderland Kit).

I have 2 last cards for you again today using some super cute new stamps and dies.

by Stephanie Gold for Lil Inker Designs hi word die ill be brief

I got the rainbow out of my system this release with the “hi” word die. I cut it repeatedly and sewed them directly onto my card base for a fun and simple look. 🙂

Lil Inker Designs // June Release Day 1

Hello Lil Inker Loves! Today is the beginning of a really fun new release with Lil Inker Designs and we have so much fun in store for you!! Before I get started I wanted to share that this will be a bittersweet release, for it will be my last with LID. 🙁 I have had nothing but wonderful times on this incredible team and it has been such an honor to work with Laura. So I am hoping to send myself off with a bang of awesome projects for you all and I am ready to get started!!

by Stephanie Gold for Lil Inker Designs flowers and banners chevron cover up die

My first card today uses the new Blossoms and Banners stamps and dies. I used the die to cut off just the bottom portion of my banner and trimmed the sides to keep the top in tact. The bottom of my card is made with the Diamond Chevron Cover Up Die. I am obsessed with each of these products individually but even more so together!! 🙂

Lil Inker Mini Release with Special Guests!

Hey everyone! Steph here again and I am so excited to be joining the lovely Lil Inker Design Team as well as some very special guests for a super fun mini new release blog hop! You should have arrived here from the lovely Cheryl Knutti’s Blog. Let’s get started!

How gorgeous are these new big beautiful sentiment stamps?? The designs left me breathless when I first saw them. To make my card be all about the sentiment I put a few ink pads together and created an ombre effect. The top and bottom of my white cardstock were die cut with the Dual Dotted Border Dies and the background was cut with the Fringe Scalloped Rectangle Dies.

Aren’t the colors so pretty together??

My next card is all about our sweet fur babies. I always picture animals in Heaven when they pass so I really wanted to try to convey that in my card. I put the sentiment with a puppy paw in the center of a Sweet Celebration heart and used the wings and the cloud stitches to give it a floating angelic feel.
