Welcome to Day 3 of the Lil' Inker Designs January Release! I hope you've been enjoying what you've seen so far! Wasn't the Flags & Tags set great!? If you are following along on the hop you should have come from Amy Kolling's fabulous blog!
Today the design team is showing projects using two new sets from the 2 Cute Ink line! I am working with the Sweet Bee stamp set which is available for purchase at the Lil' Inker store today!
Isn't she cute?
I went with a "traditional" yellow bee but put a spin on her stripes. Of course this sweet little bee is perfect for Valentine's Day but she is also so cute for cards in general to those you care about and the "Just Bee-cuzzz" sentiment is perfect for those "everyday" occasions.
I paper pieced her stripes and the heart and also added rhinestones on her antennas and hair bow.
I used the double ended flag that was showcased earlier this week from the Flags & Tags set and scored several lines, folded them and made sort of a ruffly banner for the sentiment. It is one more way to make those dies even more versatile and give them a new look! I also used the full sized flag from that same die set to layer everything on top of.
I also created a mini card using the flower grouping that is included in this set.
If you like to create quick and simple cards then this 3 x 3 card fits in that category! I stamped the flowers and then colored them with my glitter pens. Love those pens and I just don't get them out enough!
Can you see how cool they look all glittered up?
I also did another little trick with the banner on this card similar to the one on the bee card. This time I only scored the double ended flag twice and folded and then put a little dimension behind the flag to make it slightly curved. One more way to change up the look of the double ended flag.
