New Beginnings, Lil' Inker Designs Release, Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs Release!  There is some fabulous product for this month's release!  Have you stopped by the store yet?  It's all available right now!  If you are following along in the blog hop you should have come from Heather Campbell's blog and if you'd like to start at the beginning, visit Laura's blog!  There are three $15 gift certificates to the LID store up for grabs, so the more blogs you comment on, the better your chances are of winning!

I have several cards to share with you today.  I was so inspired by this release!

Jen Carter New Beginnings 1.2

This first card was so much fun to create!  Aren't these bunnies PERFECT for baby cards?  They are from the new LID Bunnies & Bows die set.  Don't just think Spring with this release...think baby showers and baby gifts too and even a "congratulations" to an expecting mommy!  How cute would these be on a onesie?  I love how the "mama" bunny is kissing the nose of the baby bunny!  So adorable!  And that sentiment, from the new Spring Sentiment set, goes so well with a baby theme too!

I watercolored the grass with my aqua crayons and then cut the bunnies from several different patterned papers from We R Memory Keepers Simply Spring collection.  The sun, shown on the first image of the card, is from the new Spot on Spring stamp set.  There are so many possibilities with that stamp set!

Sticking with this baby theme, I came up with a card based on a much-loved children's book and a gift.

Anyone remember reading this book as a child?


It is a touch and feel book and the inside looks like this:


I remember reading this at my Grandma's house and loving it!  It brings back fond memories when I see it.

My card and gift are based on this Pat the Bunny book.

Pat Bunny Duo

I kept the card very simple to keep it in line with the book.  I used the new Bunny & Bows dies to create my bunny silhouette.  The sentiment is from the previously released Pinwheel Stamps.

I placed a piece of white cardstock behind the cutout.  On the white paper I added glue to cover the surface and then sprinkled white Fun Flock over that to make the bunny fuzzy. I added a white pom pom for her tail.

For the little gift favor, a great idea for a baby shower, I took a little votive candle holder and a decorative cupcake wrapper and tied twine around it to hold it in place.  I made a little tag by die cutting the smallest circle from Stitched Mats: Circles in white.  I stamped one of the new stamps from Spot On Spring on to the tag and then stamped just the "girl" sentiment from the Pinwheel stamp set.  I added little Robin Egg candy into the holder in pastel colors.

  14. I DO remember that book! I LOVED IT! (I continue to be a very tactile person to this day, have to touch fabrics of clothing before I buy them, things have to be soft...) and I LOVE your take on it as the inspiration for your card! (your patterned paper die cut bunnies are adorable as well, but I REALLY LOVE your 'Pat the Bunny' inspired card!!)
