Hanging Out with Lil' Inker Designs!

Welcome to the last day of our Lil' Inker Designs new release showcase!  I hope you've been enjoying the new products!  I know I have been!   If you are following along in the blog hop, you should have come from Isha's blog.  If you'd like to start at the beginning, visit Laura's blog.

I told you on Tuesday that when I was making the cards for this release, I must have been in a "hanging" mood.  Well, today both of my cards feature stars that hang!


Fabulous Stars

If you follow my blog you know how much I LOVE to add color to my creations! This one is no exception!  I paired up some fun patterned papers with several great Lil Inker sets!  First up, those fun new Stitched Star dies.  Oh my!  Aren't they great!?  You may already have some star dies...BUT I bet they don't have that fantastic, textured stitching around the outside AND I bet they don't also die cut that stitch into the negative part!  I'm pretty sure you need these in your collection. I'm not trying to twist your arm or anything, though! I'm just saying! LOL!


Fabulous Stars Closeup

I used the largest star die cut to make that puffy star.  If you would like a tutorial on how to make that star, visit my post here.  I used several of the smaller sized stars too.  For the star "tail" I used a swirl stamp from the Notebook Doodle set and the sentiment comes from "Mom & Dad Sentiments" stamp set.  I hung the star with some Solid Marigold twine from The Twinery.


Congrats Expecting

I made one more baby card using several new products.  Those tiny stars on the blue/green cardstock are the stars that are cut out when you use the Starry Sky die!  Another great feature of this die is that all the stars are like little bonus pieces (and here I used four different sizes of stars)!  The sentiments come from "On the Spot" and the newly released "Snarky Sentiments".  I love those little stamped stars which come from the "Notebook Doodle" set (I seemed to use that set quite a bit for this release!).  And of course I hung the star from Gold Shimmer twine from The Twinery.

I hope you enjoyed this release!  What was your favorite new product?  Comment below (and on the other blogs along the hop) for your chance to win one of two Lil' Inker Design gift certificates being given away during this release!

  6. Two awesome samples! Love all the wonderful things that you've been showing with the stars. My first thought was "I already have a star set" but now realize how many more things I can do with the stitched ones!
