Wishing You Joy & Jolly

Hello!! It's time for another Lil' Inker Designs Release!  Yea!  This is a holiday release too!  That is hard to believe also!  How can the holidays be sneaking up on us already?

This month we have a special guest designer with us!  She has such beautiful work and I am so excited to have her join us!  If you are following along in the blog hop, you should have come her blog!  It is none other than Jeanne Jachna!   If you'd like to start at the beginning, visit Laura's blog.

There are prizes up for grabs, so be sure to leave a comment on my post for your chance to win!!

Now, to the cards!  I am pretty sure that I found a new favorite color combo...or at least one I haven't used for a long time!  Turquoise, gray & white!  Love!!

Wishing Joy 1.1

For this first card, I used a few old sets and a few new items!  I love mixing and matching!  I used 3 circles from the Spot On Stamp set and made them into ornaments using a new bow hanging stamp included in the Jolly Joyful Set.  The scalloped stamp at the top is from the Mom & Dad Sentiments set.

The "Wishing You" is also included in the new Jolly Joyful stamp set and the "joy" is a wonderful new die that I cut from white glitter paper. 

Jolly 1.1


To go along with the new "joy" die, there is also a "jolly" die.  Both dies coordinate with the Jolly Joyful stamp set!  I love the options!  Isn't that "jolly" font fun!?  I die cut it out of white glitter paper.  The sentiment also comes from the Jolly Joyful set.

I created this Polaroid with the LID Instant Camera die and the background was made using the previously released Circles & Diamonds Stitched Pattern die.  That jingle bell in the center?  Yep, it's new too!  In fact, with this release there are now 3 sizes of bells available!  A small, medium & large!  This is the largest Jingle Bell Die.  I used a piece of yellow glitter paper for the bell center.

There are so many FUN holiday items in this release!  We have three more days of sneak peeks to share with you!  Tomorrow, I will be showing a fun new cover plate die!  If you want to purchase these items now, they are all currently available in the Lil' Inker Designs store right now!
