Sunshine!

Yep, it is definitely sunny here in good old (hot) Kansas!!  But, that is not what this post is all about!! Welcome to a fun new release from Lil' Inker Designs!  I am so excited to share today's products with you! If you are following along in the blog hop, you should have come from my fabulous friend Amy's blog!  If you didn't start there and would like to start at the beginning, visit Laura's blog!

Let's get on with it, shall we?


Today the design team is sharing a new set of sun dies (they can be purchased as a set OR individually but you really will want both, heehee!!) AND a coordinating Sun Sentiment Stamp Set.  These are a GREAT compliment to the Lil' Inker Rainbows & Cloud set!  For this first card I used one of the rainbow dies, the largest cloud die and both of the sun dies for a fun little collage. 


I LOVE how well they all work together! AND, the dashes...oh the dashes are so wonderful!  They add such a nice, finished look and a feeling of texture.  So fun!


Also on this card I used the Texture Plate Collection Frame 1.  It makes such a great frame for the card!

I have one more project to share with you today using these new sun dies.  Are you ready?


I have two kids, one boy and one girl and they love to play games in the dark.  They really love flashlights.  I thought a fun gift idea would be to pair the sun die AND the super fun sentiments (that you NEED for your collection as well) with a flashlight & lantern.  What kid wouldn't LOVE that?  Makes a great birthday gift or stocking stuffer too!


Here is a closeup of Sadie's lantern.  Of course it HAD to be hot pink, her favorite color!  I used the sun die and die cut a piece out of the tag.  Then, I die cut the sun with cute, girly patterned paper and adhered it to the tag.  I added the sentiment, "You are My Sunshine" to the little border (isn't that the perfect sentiment for your children?).  I also punched a little circle from a coordinating piece of cardstock and popped it up in the middle of the sun.


Here it is turned on.  She's going to love it!


And, here is the boy version.  I had a piece of corrugated wrapping that I had saved and it made the perfect outdoorsy/boy tag.  I die cut the smallest sun out of the tag and then backed the "hole" in the tag with patterned paper.  I then cut the largest sun out of patterned paper and used the small sun from the tag layered behind it.


Here you can see how I layered the two suns on the tag a little more closely.  It gives it such a fun and unique look! 


And, here it is with the flashlight turned on.

Want to see what the dies look like?  Here you go!


The great thing is that you can order them now!  And of course I know you are so curious to see all the sentiments in the stamp set too!


Aren't there some fun ones!  Just reading them all gets my mind spinning with more and more ideas!  

Well I'm sure you'd love to see more wouldn't you?  I'll be back on Wednesday with another new release product that I know you'll love!  To continue on with more inspiration today, visit new mommy Sarah's blog!
