Lil' Inker Designs August Release: Day 2


Jen Carter Foiled Closeup 11

Welcome to day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs Release!  All of the products being shown today are currently available in the Lil' Inker Designs store!  If you are following along in the blog hop you should have come from Heather Hoffman's blog.

Today I have 2 cards to share using the new Encouraging Words Stamp Set, Encouraging Words Dies, Cover Up Die: Hello Beautiful & Fringe Scalloped Tag Dies.

Card #1


Jen Carter Foiled Enouraging Words Fringe Tag Hello Beautiful 2 wm

I love this new Encouraging Words Stamp Set and Encouraging Words Dies a lot!  The flowers in the set are just so pretty and the sentiments speak to me.  For this card I colored the flowers with Zig Real Brush Markers.  I added some glitter to the flowers with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer brush.  After diecutting and coloring the flowers, I attached them to a vellum tag that I had die cut using the brand new Fringe Scalloped Tag Dies.  I also embossed the sentiment from the set using a gold glitter embossing powder.  There is A LOT of sparkle, glimmer & shine on this card!

Let's talk about that background.  It's. So. Pretty.  I used the new Cover Up Die: Hello Beautiful to create a stencil (I used a thin acetate but you could also use cardstock if you wanted to).  Next, I taped the stencil in place and used a knife to spread out Deco Foil Transfer Gel onto the stencil.  Once the paste was completely dry I took a sheet of foil and then ran it through my Minc machine (you can also use a laminator).  This is what resulted!

This short video (30 seconds) show you the shine, shimmer & glitter on this card that is hard to capture in the photos.



Bible Journaling: Project #2

I'm trying my hand at something new to me for this next project, Bible Journaling.  I'm not a doodler.  Ok, I like to doodle but it never looks like anything so I've always been a little intimidated by it.  But I also realize that Bible journaling isn't just doodling. It's using stamps, ink, paint, etc too.

This is my humble first attempt at Bible Journaling.  The Encouraging Words Stamp Set just seemed so perfect for this project.  I stamped the flower & hearts & sentiment from the set and then colored all the images in with palette watercolors.  I added some white pen for the detail on the largest flower and some washi tape at the bottom.

    that idea. Ive been bible journaling
