Lil' Inker Designs April Release Day 1

Hello! I'm super excited today to finally start sharing all the projects I have been working on for the new release at Lil' Inker Designs - this is a HUGE release, so full of fun stuff!


I figured I would start with my very favorite project with the new goodies - I am in LOVE with these sweet new flower stamps and dies:


There are SOOO many amazing combinations you can make with these - and the font is so super fun and flirty! Here is a look at Awesome Blossoms and Awesome Blossoms Dies:



I stamped them with some of the new Hero Arts ombre inks - I wasn't sure how I would feel about them, but I officially LOVE those as well! I used Pointelle Cover Up Die for the background, and the recently released Dual Stitched Rectangles for my center with the sentiment.


Another favorite from this release is a darling elephant set, which I combined with a super fun new sentiment set:


Look at those elephants! I LOVE silhouettes in any form, and there are so many on this fun set called Party Pachyderms:


And here is the sentiment set I paired with it - called Just Sayin':


I used Dual Stitched Rectangles on this one again - then added some Simple Stories pattern paper, and flicked on a bit of Heidi Swapp color shine, then finished off with a bunch of Pretty Pink Posh Sequins - so festive! 


And finally - I used the same sentiment set from above - Just Sayin' - and made a simple shaker card:


I also used the other recently released die set - Dual Stitched Square Dies - the stitching on the cut and negative made it super easy to for my square with stitching on all sides. I set it on a diagonal on my square card base and filled with some Pretty Pink Posh Seed Beads.


Here is the entire Blog Hop line-up - make sure and check out what the rest of the Design Team has been busily creating to share today! And don't forget to leave a comment to win one of three $15 gift certificates that Laura is giving away to celebrate the new release!
