Lil' Inker Designs Release Day 1: Owl Love

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the Lil' Inker Designs new release blog hop!  I have had so much fun playing around with these products!  I know you're going to enjoy them!  They are FUN!

I happen to really like owls so when I saw this first product I'm going to share today I was pretty excited!  When I was looking for inspiration for the owl die, I came across this photo which inspired my card.

Here's a little peek...  

Those little clouds you see?  That is from a fabulous new die called "Cloudy Sky Die".  I love it!  The die cuts out several sizes of clouds, some stitched, some not, some tiny, some larger!  You can use this die so many ways!  For this card I also used it as an impression plate.  It worked fabulously and I'll share another card later this week that also features the die used as a cover plate.  The sentiment on the front is from Birthday Owl set.

Here you can see the impression a little closer.  The circle was die cut with LID's fabulous Stitched Mats: Circles die.

Now...what is on the inside?

Give a Hoot Wiser Inside

Surprise!  Isn't that owl the cutest?  There are so many different ways to use this die!  It is actually made to be used as a gift card holder all by itself, but it works very well inside the card too!  I die cut the owl body twice.  Once with the orange cardstock and once with patterned paper.  I also die cut just the nose part on another piece of patterned paper and then pieced it all together.  I did add a little "hinge" to the wings to work on the card which you'll see better in the next photo.  The balloons were die cut with the Balloon Dies and the string stamped with the Balloon Builders Stamp Set.

Here's a closeup of the owl.

Give a Hoot Wiser Sentiment

For the inside you have several options, which I love!  You can insert a gift card here or a note that you've stamped.  I found that the Lil' Inker Notebook Die fits PERFECTLY inside!  YAY!!  And it matched perfectly with the patterned paper I used for the owl wings on the front.  The Celebrate sentiment  was embossed and then the Have Some Fun was stamped underneath still leaving enough room to write a personal message.

Here's the new release items that I've used in this post (there's lots more to see tomorrow and Wednesday too, so be sure to come back):
