Lil' Inker Designs - June Release - Day 1

Hello! The day has finally arrived to share all the projects I have been working on for the new release at Lil' Inker Designs! Super excited about this release - there is a wide range of fun new goodies being released!


My post for today is all about the baby cards! I used LOTS of the new releases - they are all hiding on here in some form or another! First up a card requested by my hubby for a co-worker. His boss was going to go pick up a card for one of their group who was expecting a baby, and my husband figured I would either have, or could quickly make something (he knows me well!) :-) He couldn't remember if it was a boy or girl, so I made it somewhat neutral, just to be safe!


Here are the new products I used for this card:





I die cut the stork quite simply out of kraft paper, and heat embossed my sentiment. Pattern paper is from MME, added a doily and some machine stitching, as well as some star sequins and a bit of hemp twine. Congratulations was heat embossed on vellum and folded around and stitched on.


Next up, I made a baby boy card - love all the sentiment possibilities with these sets!


Here are some more of the new releases that I used on this card:




I also used the little sentiments from the Stork Stuff Stamp set shared above. I used watercolor for my background, and machine stitched on the center word with a bit of silver thread. The little sentiments were heat embossed in white. Pattern paper is from American Crafts, and I die cut the dot banners with white cardstock and shiny silver cardstock.


Finally, a card that is ALL girl!


Here are the additional goodies I used on this card:



For this one, I used the Eyelet to emboss instead of die cut - simply by layering together with some embossing pads. Almost makes it look like textured pattern paper! I then layered the Alphabet die over the top, and stamped the stork and sentiment from Stork Stuff stamp set shown above on vellum. I added a little bow that I made with a scrap of lace, and a tiny enamel dot, then machine stitched that panel to the front of the card, leaving some loose threads hanging.
