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!

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.

For this spring card, I used the new Stitched Butterflies die set as well as Spring Sentiments and Stitched Rectangles. I seriously just LOVE the detail Laura puts into her products. Like that flutter line? Brilliant! Something so little adds so much perfection to cards.
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!

Wish Big Unicorn

Hi there friends! It's been a while. I've been in Kansas visiting family, which is alway a nice time, but BOY it's good to be home!

I'm posting a card I actually made a few weeks ago, but am just getting around to posting it. I could not resist this sweet little unicorn in the new Paper Smooches stamp set Spectrum. OH isn't he adorable? My daughter loves My Little Pony, so I thought it would probably get a good workout by a 6 year old's little hands too ;)
I can't wait to give this birthday card to one of her little friends! So adorable.
