LID Christmas Release - Day 2


Hello! Welcome back to Day 2 of the fun new release at Lil' Inker Designs - a super fun mix of stamps and dies in this release! I'm back with more fun inspiration with some of the new dies this time! 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!


Today's cards are all rustic and ready for a cozy cabin style Christmas! This first one uses the fabulous new Christmas Words Tree Die! I die cut it twice from white cardstock and glued the layers together to make it a bit thicker. I die cut again with gold cardstock and trimmed just the star off to adhere at the top. That lovely background pattern paper was die cut using Stitched Mats: Rectangles. Finishing touch was some nice rustic jute twine wrapped around several times and tied in a loose bow.


Next up - another rustic feeling card, but a bit more CAS, using the fun Noel Word Die!


For this one, I also cut the die with two layers of white cardstock to stack together, then again from pattern paper to layer over the top of that. I used Cover Up Die: Stitched Woodgrain for the background, and used a scrap of red pattern paper to run through again, trimming out just the heart part of the Woodgrain die. I adhered the Noel Word Die so that the "o" was centered over the heart. Finally, I covered all of those pieces with a good coat of Nuvo Crystal Glaze for lots of shine and extra dimension!


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!
