LID August 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!


First up, I have this dreamy card - for some reason the Cinderella fairy tale comes to mind whenever I look at this stamp set, so I obviously was a bit inspired by that for my card! :)


This uses the new Ever Stamps and coordinating Ever Word Die, along with some distress ink smooshing with lots of gold watercolor splatters. I also applied Glossy Accents on the "ever" to give it a bit of shine and simple dimension.


And then I had fun playing with the fun Modern Mandala Stamp set and a couple of fun color combos to make these simple one layer cards!


I used a fun color palette with some Reverse Confetti dye inks for each card - this one a bit softer:


And this one a bit bolder:


I stamped the sentiment directly on the card base as well, and then added some white Nuvo drops for a simple embellishment.


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!
