A Perfect Pair: Lil' Inker Designs Release Day 3

Welcome back to day 3 of the Lil' Inker Designs release!  If you are following along in the blog hop you should have come from Erin Schreiner'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! 

First up today is a pair of cards.

Jen Carter LID Perfect Pair Red Duo


Both of these were made with the super cute Perfect Pairs stamp set.  Now, I'm not one who usually enjoys coloring images but I have to honestly admit that I had a lot of fun with these!  They are small and very easy to color and so super cute that who can resist them?!  So, if you are not a colorer at heart, these may be the perfect sized set for you!


Look at all of those cute choices!


Jen Carter LID Perfect Pair Red Duo Top Side

For this one I used the Cover Up Die: Center Point Chevron as an impression plate.  (Someone asked last time how to do this.  All you have to do is change your cutting plates to how you would for an embossing folder.  My sandwich using the Big Shot is my multi-purpose platform with no tabs, cutting plate, rubber mat, cardstock, die facing down, cutting plate on top.)

I cut the tag with one of the Pinking Edge Sentiment Flag dies and then used the single line from the Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangles set to "stitch" the line.  I colored the images with copics and added details with Sakura Gel pens.  For the fries, I first added a light yellow with the gel pens and then I colored over the top of that with several layers of yellow copics.  I liked that it made the fries nice and bright and vivid and also gave them a little texture.

This card is very similar obviously.  I did cut my card base a little less wide than usual so my tag could fit over the side and still fit into an envelope.  I used my copics to color the images again.

Aren't those the cutest stamps? ;)


Jen Carter LID Love In Air Envie WM

For my last release card, I cut those cool side stitches into my card base using the new Stitched Mats: Side-Stitched Rectangles.  I love how the largest one just stitches the slits into the card base and doesn't actually make a cut.  I embossed the sentiment from the Love is All You Need stamp set onto the card base (using Judikins Pink Twinkle embossing powder) and also embossed several different colors of lips onto vellum from the Smooches set and cut them out.  I placed the lips in an envelope included in the previously released Mini Envelope Dies & Accessories set.
