Lil' Inker July Release - Day 3

Hello! Today is the final day of the new release from Lil' Inker Designs - you should have arrived here from the Lil' Inker Designs Blog - if you stopped by here you can refer to the entire blog hop at the bottom so you don't miss a stop or a chance to win one of the giveaways. I also have links to all the new products I used on today's cards - so much fun stuff!

First up today - I have a card featuring the new Alphabet Gems Dies that coordinate with the Alphabet Gems Stamps:

These are such fun letters! I stamped and heat embossed them on watercolor paper, watercolored with distress inks, then after they dried used the dies to cut each letter out. I created a watercolor background for them, also with distress inks, then mounted them with foam adhesive.

The sentiment is from Tribal Chic Stamps, and I added that lovely Quilted Stitched Spirals background to my soft gray card base. Finished off with some enamel dots!

And then a soft little baby card - this one combines a couple new products, with some older ones!

I started off by cutting an offset window using the Fringe Scalloped Circles, and the hello using Everyday Word Tags Dies. I love that the little loop on the top makes a perfect spot to tie on my twine bow!

I added a heat embossed sentiment from from Warm Welcome Stamps, some purple ombre pattern paper from Lil' Inker's Dip Dyed Ombre Paper Pad, and a kraft card base that I used Quilted Swirl Stitched Pattern Die on. Finished off with a few Clear Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh.

And one final bonus card to share! I also love that the Everyday Word Tags Dies can be extra versatile - you can easily cut off the little loop to make them just simple word dies!

I made this card very simple - pretty pattern paper and a simple focal point so that the "Thanks" really stands out.

I used On The Diagonal Die to cut out a base for the word, then backed it with some torn vellum to help it pop from the card a bit more.
