A Little More Joy

Today is the wrap-up day for the Lil' Inker Designs holiday release!  I hope you've really liked the products that you've been seeing the design team showcase!  I know I sure had a lot of fun working with them!

I have two last cards to share with you today!  Bur first, if you are following along in the blog hop, you should have come from Jeanne Jachna's blog!  Hasn't she impressed you with her work this week?  What a joy to have her joining us! If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, visit Laura's blog.

Traditional Joy

This card combines some other previously released products with the new "joy" die.  I used the Starry Sky Die to cut the stars in the Flags & Tags Banner die.  I also used the Spot On circle stamps with the Connected Circle Die to create a traditional Christmas colored banner.  The "joy" is cut with glitter paper (of course!).  To add a little more sparkle, I tied some Gold Shimmer twine from The Twinery around the middle.

Glad Tidings 1.1

This last card is way outside of my normal.  I don't usually use these colors but I was going for a more vintage look for this one.  I stamped several of the images from the Jolly & Joyful Sentiments set onto my patterned cardstock.  I embossed the sentiment, from Instant Camera Christmas, in gold.  The large Jingle Bell die was die cut and hung with shimmer twiner from The Twinery.

Thank you so much for joining us for this release!  Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a great prize from the LID store!  Your next stop on the hop is over to Karen's blog!

  13. Really like the contrast of the bold colored stripes with the die cut stars from the bright red banner on your first card (nice CAS layout too!). And I like the look of that intricate bell die cut with the pretty musical patterned paper behind it as well.
