Lil' Inker's April Release Day 3

Hello - and welcome back to the third and final day of the hop for the new release at Lil' Inker Designs! I hope you have enjoyed this release - it sure has been a fun one here for me!


I feel like I keep saying each days goodies are my favorite - but it is pretty much true! I love them all! Today's cards are a mix of fun and cute, and masculine and simple!

First up - using the amazing new Tribal Chic Cover Up Die - I love the cover up dies for adding simple texture, and this one is a super fun new one!

I paired it up with the new Kite Flying stamps and Kite Flying Dies (NOTE: for this release, we as designers were all working with a sample set of dies - the final product cuts closer to the stamp set and doesn't leave as large a margin around the edges)


I used the cover up die on watercolor paper, then added a watercolor backdrop to my cute scene - adding a few paint splatters as well. The sentiment was heat embossed on black cardstock from the same stamp set - but the happy birthday portion came from Clean Lines: For the Guys stamps. I finished off with some jute twine for the kite string, and a few wood veneer shapes for fun.


And next up - a simple masculine card using Clean Lines: For the Guys stamps - this set is fabulous for Father's Day or just birthday or whatever for the guys in your life! I also used the Tribal Chic pattern paper on this one as well as the Silly Stitched Dies


I colored it up simply with Copics, stamped my sentiments, and tore the edges of the paper before mounting with foam adhesive. I always want to add more embellishments to guy cards, but I managed to restrain myself and keep it simple!
