Lil' Inker Designs Release Day 3: Brush Word Dies

Hello!  I am so excited to share this next post for Lil' Inker Designs release week with you!  We have saved the best for last!    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!

Today you will see three new dies that haven't been previewed yet on the design team blogs.  If you've checked out the store, then you've probably seen them there.  Hot on the watercolor/brush script trend LID is introducing three new word dies:  smile, thanks & hello!

hello wtmk

First up is "hello".  This card couldn't have been simpler!  I cut the hello out of watercolored paper and then again out of black paper and adhered them together so that the black made a little bit of a shadowed outline.  I then adhered them to a piece of patterned paper and added enamel dots.  SIMPLE!!

Isn't a brush script word die COOL!!??  Love it!  And, glittered enamel dots aren't too shabby either, heehee!!  And, can you believe that there is NO stamping on this card...or the next one either!

Next up is another simple card.  I die cut the "smile" out of several pieces of cardstock.  The turquoise smile I layered on top of two smiles that I had die cut from black cardstock to make it thicker and easier to pop up on the card.  

Smile wtmk

I adhered the die cut smiles to patterned paper that was first die cut with a Stitched Mats Square die, added some enamel dots and a strip of colored cardstock across the card base and the card was done!  Again, super simple but it packs a punch!





Thumbs w wtmrk

Moving in a different direction, I have one last card to share with you and this one uses the new Thumbs Up stamps.  I stamped the thumbs and then added in some doodles from the Notebook Doodle stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment, also from the set, at the bottom of the card.  You can't see it in this picture, but I went over the stars and hearts with a Wink of Stella glitter pen.  This is such a fun and unique stamp set!  It makes great masculine cards too as I'm sure you've seen from the other design team members the last few days. 


Well, that's all for me today!  Don't forget to leave a comment to win!  The more blogs you comment on, the better your chances are of winning!  There's plenty more inspiration to see using these sets today!  Your next stop on the hop is over to Karen's blog!
