LID February Spring Release - Day 1

Hello! So happy today to begin sharing some fun projects for the brand new release at Lil' Inker Designs - another fun and fabulous release! You should have arrived here from Chrissy Larson - 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 the amazing giveaway. I also have links to all the new products I used on today's cards!


First up, I have a card featuring a several of the new items - and with a spring feel and color scheme!


First off, I used the heart from Sweet Celebration Dies to die cut two kraft hearts - these feel like grapevine wreaths to me! I die cut the fabulous new background die - Quilted Stitched So Sunny Die on watercolor paper, then did some distress ink smooshing over the top of it. Added some gold splatters for good measure. Once that dried, I added my two wreaths with some adhesive in selected spots, so it hung free in other spots and felt a bit more realistic. Heat embossed a sentiment from Sweet Celebrations Stamp set on a banner from the same Sweet Celebration Dies, and then die cut the new Celebrate Word Die from pattern paper and added those with some gold sequins to finish off!


Next up, I have been wanting to try some ombre watercoloring again - so I made a super simple and nearly one layer card!


I used two shades of blue watercolors, and some green at the very bottom - blending everything together. I added a sentiment from Sweet Celebrations Stamp Set at the bottom, then die cut the word blessed from Brush Script Spring Word Dies from black and white cardstock, layered them together, and adhered directly on the ombre colors.


Your next stop along the blog hop is Jennifer Carter - head over there next to finish the hop before you go shopping. See you tomorrow with more projects and fun!
