Hello again! We are celebrating a new little Valentine's Day release at Lil' Inker Designs over the next couple days! Lots of fun Valentine theme things - but also stuff you can use all year around! I have links to all the product I used today at the bottom of my post.
The first card I have uses the darling new Lovie Friends - a super cute Valentine animal set, but I've added a sentiment from another set to show how you can stretch it for so many other uses! That little giraffe is SOOOO cute!!! Would also be fun for a new baby card or shower invitation!
After coloring, I die cut the giraffe with the coordinating dies. I used the new Silly Stitched Die set (LOVE LOVE LOVE this one!) to cut the rectangle, and also add the circle stitched detail. I love that it only adds the stitching and doesn't cut the circle as well - great for adding detail! I added a bit of distress ink to ground the giraffe, then as an afterthought, added a bit of glitter washi and a scrap of doily. The sentiment is stamped using the recently re-released Sunshine Sentiments Stamp set. Finished off by mounting with foam on some of the new paper from the Love You Paper pack.
So, what if coloring isn't your thing? I love finding ways to use images without necessarily having to color them in - so I made this card as well!
For this one, I simply stamped and die cut the lion, then left him plain and simple! I layered together some scraps of Lil' Inkers Dip Dyed Ombre paper pad together, then die cut it, again with those fun Silly Stitched Dies. Added the sentiment, and mounted with foam on a white card base that I had used the Diamond Lace Cover Up Die on. Nice and easy!
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!
