Sparkle & Shine with Lil' Inker Designs!

It's Day 3 of the Lil' Inker Designs release!  I hope you've enjoyed what you've been seeing this week!

If you are following along in the blog hop, you should have come from our guest designer's blog Jeanne Jachna! Isn't her work terrific?  If you'd like to start at the beginning, visit Laura's blog.

Up today, I am showcasing another new stamp & die set that I have used on a few cards this week already, the Jolly & Joyful Sentiment stamp & Christmas Bits die set!

Sparkle & Shine

I love the little tree image in this stamp set (and there's a tree die to match!).  I stamped the tree repeatedly and then added some fun chunky glitter below. The sentiment is from a previously released set, Winter Greetings.  And that bow...ahhhh, so cute!  It is also a previously released die, Bow Die Mini.  I die cut it from white glitter paper.

Pink Christmas

When I make Christmas cards, I tend to like to use non-traditional Christmas colors. 
For this card, I started with my pink base and added the sentiment from the Jolly Joyful Stamp set. I die cut "joy" from patterned paper and then added the enamel dots.

Pink Christmas Closeup

I added the new Christmas tree die to a snow hill that I created. I added a tiny die cut star from the previously released Starry Sky Die to the top of the tree. Isn't the tree so cute?

That's all I have for you today!  Be sure to come back one last day to see more projects from this release!  Your next stop on the hop is over to Karen's blog!  Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win one of two gift certificates to the Lil' Inker Designs store!!

  12. Jen, I am drooling over how you orientated the bow in your first card. LOVE the use of the new tree die in both of these designs. I'm inspired to try something different with my Christmas colors. I ALWAYS do red and white. I'm so inspired by your pink and colorful cards this week!! Great stuff!!!!

  14. Sweet and happy pink card! (would also work great for a post-season "thanks for the Christmas gift" card). These new dies lend themselves to easily making multiple cards.
