Just The Way You Are.

Hi! Happy Sunday evening. I've had a fairly productive day getting ready for my week. Even braved the grocery store tonight, which turns out was a HORRIBLE idea! haha.

I had some time to create this card using My Favorite Things products last week and am posting. I am really trying to branch out a bit of my comfort zone and use more techniques like stenciling and watercoloring more.
I wanted to keep this card fairly monochromatic, so I stuck with the colors Blu Raspberry (the lighter teal) and Tropical Teal (darker). I mixed my own embossing paste using white paste with Blu Raspberry Dye Ink - super easy!

Here are the supplies I used to create this card:
Tropical Teal Cardstock
Blu Raspberry Cardstock
Smooth White Cardstock
Tropical Teal Dye Ink
Die-Namics Rose with Overlay
Blueprints 18
On The Diagonal Stencil 
I Love You More Stamp Set

Lil' Inker Designs Release Blog Hop: Day 1

Hiiiii! We are kicking off an awesome and amazing January release for Lil' Inker Designs with some inspiration using the new products! Let's get started. Are you in the mood for LOVE?!?!

My first card for the hop is a soft pastel watercolor Valentine card. I typically don't do pastel, but was happy with the result of my distress ink blending over the white embossed sentiment. The FONT on this stamp is to die for!

Lil' Inker Designs Release Day 3

The final day of the hop has arrived. Another fabulous release under wraps! I hope you are enjoying the new products and inspiration the design team has brought you. I have had so much fun creating with these new products.

For my final card, I was able to come up with this design that packs a punch in a jiffy. I love products that make casual and simple cards so easy!
I die cut various colored stitched panels from the Stitched Mats: Long and Skinny Rectangles Die Set and then die cut the Awesome word die in glossy black. I then adhered matching enamel dots to tie off the card.

As I was wrapping presents today, I decided I needed to whip up some more casual and simple tags. This Anytime Tags Set is amazing!!! I love the various sizes and the shape and stitching on this set!
The gold ampersand is seriously so gorgeous in real life! I love the lines through it. I stamped the merry and bright from the All About Ampersands Stamp Set. I tied off some gold ribbon and voila! Tag done.


I hope you enjoyed this month's release hop and all the new products and all the inspiration! Be sure to leave your comments today because you have a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Lil' Inker Shop!
