LID Christmas Release - Day 1



Hello! Today is the beginning of a fun new release at Lil' Inker Designs - a super fun mix of stamps and dies in this release! So excited to start sharing them with you! 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!


This release is totally fabulous as always! I love the mix of fun and cute - and then there is this JAW dropping and gorgeous Vintage Christmas Wreath stamp set that I used on this card!


It is just beautiful on it's own - but for this card, I colored it in with a bit of distress inks used as watercolors, then layered it up with some gorgeous pattern paper finished off with some jute twine to add some lovely finishing texture - perfect for the rustic feel of this! I love how the Coordinating Dies make it super easy to get such a lovely border around the whole thing without fussy cutting!


And then the next card using some more florals, but a more modern and simple design - I told you there was lots of variety in this release!


For this one, I started by cutting out the new Cover Up Die - Geometric Snow from white cardstock, then layering over a soft blue cardbase using tiny bits of foam adhesive to adhere it for lots of dimension. I then added some florals from the new Festive Florals stamp set, colored with Copics and cut out with their Coordinating Dies.


I added a sentiment - also from Festive Florals stamp set, white heat embossed on a tiny panel of black cardstock cut with Rounded Rectangles dies. I colored in the center of the letters a bit with a red colored pencil, then used the Press & Seal technique of layering everything how I wanted it, picking it up with the Press & Seal, adding adhesive to the back, and then adhering it back on the card. As a finishing touch, I added some sparkly Nuvo Drops to the berries for shine!
