A Little Love: Lil' Inker Designs Release Day 1


Hello!  It's time for a new Lil' Inker Designs release! The new products are already available in the  Lil' Inker Designs store!  If you are following along in the blog hop you should have come from Lisa Henke'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!

These new Lovie Friends stamps and new Lovie Friends dies have captured my heart!  I've always said I'm not a colorer, and well, you can tell that my skills haven't seen much practice lately but this lion...well, I LOVE this lion so much!  I couldn't resist giving him a mane full of color!  And of course, the balloons needed to follow suit!

I used the new XOXO Valentine Tag Die (3 dies in this set) for the tiger to stand on.  I first used the Quilted Swirl Stitched Pattern Die to cut the pattern into the XOXO for added texture and then stamped the sentiment from the Lovie Friends stamp set underneath.

I thought that the new Silly Stitched Die Set (which has been in the works for quite some time!) was the perfect way to frame this scene.  I added one of the Hearts Banners to the top corner.

For my 2nd card, I again used the cute Lovie Friends stamps and Lovie Friends dies for my animal images.  Aren't they adorable?!  I put a bow die cut from the Bunnies & Bows die set on the giraffe.  I adhered them to a tag that I die cut using the Dotted Tag Die.  I stamped the sentiment from the newly revised Pinwheel Sentiments Stamp Set on patterned paper that I had die cut with one of the Pinking Edge Sentiment Flag dies.

You can also see a couple of the Silly Stitched Circle Dies on the background paper that I die cut to frame the tag.
All of the Lil' Inker products that I've used (and more!) are available to purchase right now in the Lil' Inker Designs store!  Your next stop on the blog hop is over to Maureen Merritt's blog!

I hope you enjoyed these cute little animal projects!  They are just the right size to color and can be used all year long!  Thanks for stopping by!

  28. Excellent coloring here, Jen! Beautiful photos too. I have to say my fave is the lion because I'm obsessed with how you've colored is mane. I wouldn't have thought to make him colorful and if I color him again I wouldn't do it any other way now. I'm inspired!!!! So so well done, Jen. Thank you so much for your hard work!
