LID December Release Day 2 - Plaid and Penguins

Hello! Welcome back to Day 2 of sharing projects with the BRAND NEW December release at Lil' Inker Designs! Such fun products in this release - and if you love Buffalo Plaid (and who DOESN'T?!?!?) - 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've used the beautiful Cozy Plaid Stamp set again - this time to create a background for this fun shaker using the penguins from the new Good Cheer Stamp Set:


For this background, I stamped the main large plaid image from Cozy Plaid in a medium gray ink, then I used the fun sketchy lines to stamp in black over the top in an alternating pattern. The result was this neutral and fun plaid background!


Next, I stamped and colored the sweet penguins from Good Cheer Stamp Set, cut them with their coordinating Good Cheer Dies, and heat embossed a sentiment from the set on a strip of vellum. I die cut a Stitched Oval from a panel of white cardstock, and built a shaker filled with pretty Sparkly Clear Jewels from Pretty Pink Posh and backed with that lovely neutral plaid. I also wrapped the vellum sentiment strip around the panel and tucked it under in the back beneath the foam adhesive for the shaker.


I finished off by mounting the penguins at the bottom of the shaker, then mounting the entire panel on a coordinating gray cardbase. Love the neutral colors with the pop of color from the penguins winter accessories!
