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.

Lil' Inker Designs Release Day 1

Hiiiiii guys! It's day 1 of the BRAND NEW Lil' Inker Designs Release for December! Get excited. This release is going to knock your socks off!

I am starting my projects off with a card I made using this kick butt cover plate die. I mean, it is GORGEOUS. And there is a hidden heart design in it that you can use or not, totally up to you.

I also used the new All About Ampersand Stamp Set and Alphabet Gems Stamp Set.
I can totally see this cover up plate being used with watercolors and also a rainbow of colors to look like stained glass. Eeeek!

Paper Crafts Magazine Thank You Blog Hop

Wow. What a difficult blog post to write today. About a month ago, I learned that Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine was shutting its doors for good. I was so sad, because this meant many things - awesome, talented people were losing their jobs, there would be no more fun submission parties and celebrations and finally, no more magazines to oo and ahh over.

But I know in my heart, the paper crafting industry will stand strong. I know this talented team will bounce back and find amazing opportunities open up for them. And I know we as paper crafters will continue to stamp. Nothing will hold us down.

We are hoping in honor of this great magazine and all the joy it brought us. If you have arrived from Niki's blog, you are in the right direction.

I created this card for the past Stamp It! Call that never went past the publication call. I think it's very appropriate for this hop, and for the paper crafting industry as we suffer this major blow.
Thank you, Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine, for the emails, the fun and publishing my creations and name in glossy print. It's been one SUPER fun ride. 

Your next stop on the hop is Vanessa Menhorn. I can't wait to see all the beautiful inspiration from all these ladies on the hop! 

Much love to all my paper crafting friends!
