LID Christmas Release - Day 3



Hello! It's the third and final day of the blog hop to celebrate 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 feature some fun with letters and words! This first card I used the new Peace, Love, & Joy stamp set - a fun set that has two part stamping options for the letters to build these three words. I couldn't choose just one, so I used all 3 on my card! It's hard to see, but I used the smaller part of each letter to stamp in Delicata Gold Pigment Ink - which adds a subtle shine.


To emphasize the words, I added "joy" and "peace" from Rustic Christmas underneath their respective words, and since I couldn't find "love" in the same font I added some little hearts from Greetings & Salutations to reinforce that word in a visual way.


Next up, I used the FABULOUS new Joy to the World Stamp set - this one is PERFECT for making Christmas cards with a simple focal point!


I heat embossed it with some fabulous new Lawn Fawn Rose Gold Embossing powder that I picked up recently and hadn't had a chance to try - LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I added some pattern paper to the top and bottom trimmed with Border Builders Die Set, and tied on a bit of jute twine to finish off.


It was hard to capture it with a photo, but check out the pretty shine this has:
