Let's Have a Party!

Let's have a party...a mini party that is!  Welcome to Day 2 of the Lil' Inker Design's release!   If you are following the blog hop, you should have come from Isha's blog!  If  you would like to start at the beginning, visit Laura's blog.

If you love the balloon and party hat dies from LID, you'll love this new die set as well!  It is a mini version of the original die sets!


I told you yesterday I'm in a Valentine making mood, so for this cute die set, I created a banner with the Mini Party hat dies and also used hearts from the Of the Heart die set.  I added the mini squiggly party hat border as a topper to the banners.  For the banner string, I used the balloon string from the new Balloon Builder stamp set and it worked like a charm.  


The mat is die cut with the Stitched Mats: Rectangle dies.  I can't quit using those!  They are so perfect for the matting on card fronts!  You can see the tiny little squiggly pieces a little more closely here.  To adhere them to the banner pieces I used a glue pen.


I pulled out a few more LID goodies for the bottom portion of the card as well.  I used the Stitched Sentiments Flag Die, the Sentiment Flag Additions Dies (the wavy flag die) and the double ended banner die from Flags & Tags Die Set.   I also used the heart again from the Of the Heart set and the sentiments come from the coordinating stamp set Of the Heart (PS...the Of the Heart Stamp Set & Die combo is ON SALE!!).  The paper is a wonderful line by Pink Paislee called Secret Crush and the beautiful twine is The Twinery's Platinum Shimmer

Below is a image of what this mini set contains.  Lots of tiny cuteness!  And, this set also includes a small balloon string die as well!  Bonus!! :)  And, do you see that long, skinny balloon!  I love it!


There are a couple of the dies that are the same size as the dies in the original balloon die set, but I found that to be SOOOO handy because I could cut multiple balloons at the same time and didn't have to run them through my die cut machine one at a time.  You all know how slow that can go!   I'll show you some samples using those tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win one of TWO $10 gift cards to the Lil' Inker Designs store!  To continue on in the blog hop, visit Judith's blog!

Have a great day!
