Lil' Inkers December Release - Day 2

Hello! It's time for Day 2 of the new release at Lil' Inker Designs! Such a fun set of goodies in this release - I am in love with all the variety! I have links to all the product I used today at the bottom of my post.

I really love this new thank you die - such an easy way to share your gratitude with someone!

And here is the stamp set I used for this card - linked below:

I very simply cut it out of gold cardstock, tied on some gold thread, then mounted on some of the amazing Ombre pattern paper from Lil' Inkers, matted in a little more gold. This would even be an easy card to drop in the mail without additional postage!

Next up, a very simple and understated sympathy card - I tried to keep the colors super soft and simple:

Here is a peek at the new goodies I used on this card - all of them are also linked below:

I stamped the flowers in gray ink on watercolor paper, then did some light and messy watercoloring. Added a few ink splatters and let that dry before attaching under the new Dotted ovals as a window. The sentiment was die cut from black cardstock, then glued over the window and finished with a good heavy coat of Glossy Accents.

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!
