CardMaker and Lil' Inker Designs Hop

Good morning! It's blog hop time again for the CardMaker Blog Design Team - today we are partnering up with another one of my favorite companies (and yet another of my current Design Teams) - Lil' Inker Designs! You should have arrived here from Jen Carter - full blog hop is at the bottom so you can check out every stop.


I made a couple simple thank you cards combining some of the most recent release with some previously released items!


I absolutely love the new Wreath of Roses Stamp Set - and while it is lovely colored, once I started putting these together I loved the simple intricacy of them on these cards. So lovely to have a stamped image that can stand on it's own with no coloring! I used the coordinating Wreath of Roses Dies to cut them out, using my MISTI to line them up perfectly.


I used Diamond Lace Cover Up Die to cut the background out of white cardstock. Layered on my white cardbase this gave a great bit of texture without being overwhelming in the entire design.


Sentiment is from Mom and Dad Sentiments Stamp Set, heat embossed in white on a strip of black cardstock. Some pretty pattern paper from Lawn Fawn make a great backing for the wreaths so that they pop. I adhered the wreath and sentiment with foam tape, then adhered the other layers leaving the edges loose and curling them up a bit for dimension. A bit of jute twine finish these off!


Your next stop along the hop is Lisa Henke - but make sure and leave a comment before you leave. Here is the prize that is up for grabs! YAY!


Here is the entire blog hop line-up so you can follow along and see all the fun inspiration!
