Lil' Inker Designs April Release: Day 3

I hope you all are enjoying the projects you have seen so far for Lil' Inker Design's April Release. If you got here from Amy's blog, you are in the right place.

Today, I have a fun little project for you....a tag bag! These cute little glassine envelopes are the perfect thing to complete your gift packages!
What's even cooler? You can heat emboss on them! I used a black glitter with the You're My Favorite stamp set and it worked out perfectly. Inside the bag, I die cut the Quick Notes Star Fold Out Die and poured some sequins inside. Such an easy, cute way to spice up a gift!

Hi there, friends! I hope you all are enjoying the projects you have seen so far for Lil' Inker Design's April Release. If you got here from Amy's blog, you are in the right place.

Today, I have a card using the Smart Cookie stamp set.
Hee hee! Isn't he adorable? I love that this set is so versatile, too. You can stamp him with glasses, a graduation cap or nothing at all. Perfect just in time for graduation season!

Lil' Inker Designs April Release: Day 1

WOAH. I haven't blogged in a WHILE. I've been busy in Vegas and all that.

But today, I'm here to post a project for the Lil' Inker Designs April Release! You guys are in for a real treat, just you wait and see! If you came from Amy's blog, you are in the right place.
I used THREE new Lil' Inker products on this card! Quite possibly my very favorite of the release is the Quilted Stitched Pattern Die. Isn't this amazing? Such a simple, yet intricately detailed die that will add SO MUCH to your card. Love it!
I also used these awesome new funky flower dies from the Frames & Flowers Die Set:
And last, I used a sentiment from the Quick Notes set, full of so many versatile sentiments:

Hey there friends! Happy Saturday!

I'm here today posting a card I made for my girl Taheerah's Cure For the Monday Blues Challenge. So fun! Here is the photo inspiration she posted for this week:
Yeah, that photo pretty much screams my name, no? HA HA! 
Here is my take on the photo in card form:
I definitely knew when I saw this photo that I wanted to use one of my new Hero Arts Background Stamps, Highline Chalkboard. So fabulous! The bright yellow flowers are from Simon Says Stamp's Best Mom Ever set,  and the xoxo die is from the ever fabulous Amy Tangerine's Plus One line. 

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! xo

Super tricky for me, but super fun! Here's my take:
Ha! This girl cracks me up and totally fits the sentiment from Lil' Inker Designs The Fine Print stamp set. I also used Lil' Inker's Stitched Hearts Die Set, Cover Up Die - Swirls and Instant Camera Die

Bravo Roses + Stamping Royalty!

Hi there, friends!

So I have some pretty exciting news to share with you....this morning, on the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine blog, they announced I was a winner of the Stamping Royalty Contest! WHAT?!?!? Yeah. Pretty amazing. I got the email on Friday and I'm fairly confident I may have started screaming.

You will be able to see my winning Season's Greetings card in the July 2014 issue. Yipee!

I am posting a card today that sort of fits my news. I made this using a few fabulous products, including Lil' Inker Designs On The Diagonal die, WPlus9 Coming Up Roses stamp and die set and Avery Elle Circle It stamp set.
I am having so much fun with those roses!

I have been SO busy the past few days moving craft rooms. Yep, you heard right! I am taking over the media room. I hope to have photos and even a video VERY soon!

See you later!

What Makes You AWESOME.

Helloooooo! Welcome to my blog, so good to see you today!

I have a card for you using some fabulous Unity stamps.
I used the March 2014 SMAK kit to heat emboss white flowers and a splatter from Splatters & Stars on a cardstock panel. I then inked it all up with  various Tim Holtz Distress Inks and rubbed off my excess ink from the flowers. Then, I heat embossed the What Makes You Awesome sentiment onto vellum and adhered that to my card. So fun!

Another awesome sale will start on the Unity website at NOON today!
Your next stop on the hop is Jolande. Enjoy, and don't forget to leave those comments for your chance to win a fabulous Unity prize!

Lil' Inker Designs March Release: Day 3

Hi friends! Posting one last card for you today as we wind down the March release. I hope you all have enjoyed the projects so far and are able to pick up a few of your favorites in the LID store VERY soon.(The bunnies and bows are already sold out, but more are on the way!)

If you've arrived here from Amy's blog, you're in the right direction. If somehow you got lost, be sure to start back at the Lil' Inker Design blog for a complete list.

I know St. Patty's Day is over, but I had to create a card using the Mixed & Stitched Number dies and Spot on Spring, they were so perfect for this card. So many LID goodies in one card here!
