Hello again! Welcome to the last post for the Lil' Inker Designs release week! Hasn't this been a fabulous release, full of fun and inspiring products! If you are following along on the blog hop, you should have come from the fabulous Debby Hughes! If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop, be sure to visit Laura Pryor's blog!
Today all the design team members will be showcasing the new products on their blogs! And, we have another little extra item that is releasing this month that will make a great addition to some of the Lil' Inker products you may already have, the new Stitched Sentiment Flag die!
Let's get on with the samples!
I wanted to show you a fun way to use several of the new products! This is an invitation in a glassine bag. Since the bag is semi transparent, you can see the invitation through the bag. Something fun to note about the outside of the invitation...can you see that I used the new (and fabulous) Stitched Mats die on the outside of the bag? Because it just cuts the stitches and doesn't cut out the rectangle shape on the largest sized die (the other smaller sizes cut the mat too plus the stitched lines) it made the perfect frame for the invitation (sorry the invitation inside the bag is crooked so it is hard to see in the photo).
For the invitation closure, I used the smallest Stitched Mats Rectangle die and the new Stitched Sentiment Flag Die (which is available right now at the GREAT price of $3.50!!) layered on top of each other. Aren't the stitches pretty!! I folded the ends over the back of the bag and then used a tiny piece of Velcro to secure the flap of the bag down.
I embossed the "let's celebrate!" sentiment from the new "You're Invited" Stamp Set onto the front of the bag. I love how this turned out!
Here's the invitation on the inside of the bag. I used a Smokey Shadow cardstock for the base. I embossed the sentiments and the star borders in different colors of embossing powders. Since the stamps are clear, they bend easily which allowed me to make the curved star border above the flags. I stamped the lines and the invitation sentiments in VersaMark ink. I also used the largest Stitched Mats Rectangle die around the outside of the base.
I have one more card to share today to wrap up this release!
This is a simple card. I used the second largest Stitched Mats Rectangle die to die cut the rectangle and the stitched border from patterned paper. I love how the five smallest dies in this set cut out the rectangle and the stitches! It makes layering SO easy!
I then cut out three coordinating shades of cardstock with the Stitched Sentiment Flag. The beautiful sentiment is from the Flags & Tags set.
Well, that is all I have for you today! I hope you enjoyed this release week! I have heard a rumor that these products have been very popular and are flying off the shelves! Yippee!!
