Lil' Inker's April Release Day 2

Hello - and welcome back to Day 2 of the hop for the new release at Lil' Inker Designs!


Today I'm sharing some a couple cards featuring another one of my favorite stamp sets from the new release - Vintage Flower


I absolutely LOVE how elegant and versatile this one is! Really endless possibilities! I started off by just stamping it in black to make a background for my card - simple and elegant just like that!


I added some distress inking around the edges, then tore some strips of vellum and layered them together, before adding my sentiment from Vintage Label Sentiments and die cut with the coordinating Vintage Label Die. I heat embossed it in black cardstock - and also added some black jute twine under the sentiment.


Next up, I heat embossed those flowers and leaves from the set on vellum using white and gold embossing powder, then die cut with the coordinating dies. to make a shaker card.


Isn't that die around the edges AH-MAZING?!?!? It's the Fringe Scallop Rectangle dies - they SOOO unique and fun - I love it! And that pattern paper behind it? That is another one from the beautiful Tribal Chic Pattern paper set.


I filled it with a fun mix of goodies from Pretty Pink Posh - gold and charcoal sequins, white seed beads, and iridescent heart confetti.
