Lil' Inker's September Release - Day 2

Hello! Welcome to Day 2 of the new release at Lil' Inker Designs


I'm tackling some fun apple inspiration with the new Teacher Talk stamp set today!


Love the fun modern take of this stamp set:


I kept this card super clean and simple - layered the apples all together in a row (LOVE the sketchy look of this design!), then added stems, leaves, and sentiment. Finished off with a bit of jute twine at the top. Easy!


Next up, I wanted to do a fun and un-traditional color combination. Here is what I came up with:


On this one, in addition to the Teacher Talk stamp set, I also used the coordinating Apple Pieces Die Set:


I masked and stamped the sentiment in the center of the apples after die cutting them all out. I layered them together, then mounted with foam adhesive on a rectangle cut with Embossed Dots Rectangle Dies. The background was created with the Quilted Swirl Stitched Pattern Die. This set lends itself so well to creative interpretations, don't you think? LOVE it!


And now the fun part! There is, of course, a chance to win some shopping money to spend on the new goodies! YAY! Laura is giving away 3 gift certificates for random comments left along the hop - so the more comments you leave, the better your chance of winning!
