LID June Release Day 2 - Plaid, Shakers, and Babies, Oh My!

Hello! Welcome to Day 2 of the blog hop to celebrate the BRAND NEW June release at Lil' Inker Designs! There are SOOOO many incredible new stamps and dies in this release - and if you like coffee, kitties, or babies - you are going to LOVE this release!!! You can find the entire new release HERE!


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 I have FOUR cards to share - all baby theme! Lots of this release is geared toward baby cards, and I couldn't resist building up my stash a bit - I created two each of boy and girl cards!


This first card also uses the fabulous Cover Up Die: Perfectly Plaid. This die is genius! You die cut it twice, and rotate one layer 180 degrees - and it makes a plaid design like this! I layered together a lighter and darker aqua over a dark gray cardbase for this card!


I also used the new Baby Word Tag Dies - only I trimmed the tags off with scissors so I could just use the words. I die cut each word once from white cardstock, blended some coordinating ink over the bottom of each word, then die cut again from white fun foam and layered together to make them super dimensional. Finished off by covering them with a thick coat of Crystal Glaze to make them shine, and feel even more dimensional!


For the second boy card, I used another new favorite - Baby Onsie Shaker Die - to make a shaker card!


I love how this cuts the stitching on both the negative, AND the positive of the die cut! Perfect for making an entire shaker full of sparkliness like this.


Layered it on some Lawn Fawn Gingham pattern paper, filled it with Mini Iridescent Star Confetti from Pretty Pink Posh, and finished off with a heat embossed sentiment from the darling new Little Ones Stamp Set on a strip of gray cardstock that I hand trimmed into a banner.


Now - onto those girl cards!


For this first one, I again used the new Cover Up Die: Perfectly Plaid, only instead of die cutting, I used embossing pads to create an embossed background! I added some soft pink distress ink blending over the top to make a focal point area.


I die cut the Baby Onsie Shaker Die from pattern paper, and this time used the positive die cut. I heat embossed a sentiment over the top, again using the Little Ones Stamp Set, added some jute string behind, and mounted that panel on a pink cardbase.


And finally, combining these two new dies and new stamp set one more time for the second girl card:


This time I die cut the Cover Up Die: Perfectly Plaid frome white cardstock two times, ink blended over the top of one of them, layered them together, and trimmed the edges slightly smaller than my pink cardbase. This allowed me to attach them together behind the onesie and leave the edges more free floating for a whimsical look.


I used the positive die cut from my shaker card above, and stamped a sentiment from Little Ones Stamp Set over the top with a soft gray ink. Simple and fun!
