Spring! with Lil' Inker Designs Release, Day 1


Welcome to Day 1 of the newest Lil' Inker Designs release!  I can't wait to share projects with you this week!  I've created so many that it was hard to choose which to share now and which to save to show you later!  If you are following along in the hop, you should have come from Heather Campbell's blog.  If you'd like to start at the beginning, please visit Laura's blog.

Today I'm going to start with something that some of you have been waiting for for a long time...LID Mixed & Stitched Alphabet & Numbers dies (sold separately) and a small peek of Stitched Butterflies & Spring Sentiments too!

Jen Carter Spring in my Step

You are going to love adding these stitched alphabet dies to your collection!  I love how there are both mixed upper case & lower case letters...so trendy!  I used a partial sentiment from the new Spring Sentiments set.   I die cut each letter from the Mixed & Stitched Alphabet dies three times and adhered them together to add dimension.  Don't you just love those stitched letters?  SWOON!

You are also seeing a sneak peek of another new die set called Stitched Butterflies.  See that little "spring" stitched into the card?  That is the butterfly tail from the Stitched Butterflies set!  LOVE this little detail!

I have another project to share today.  It was almost an afterthought and once the idea came to me, I decided to go with it and that is how this next project came together.

Jen Carter Stitched Alpha Baby Frame

I have to admit that I had babies on the brain with this release!  NO, we are done having children, lol, but when I looked at this release I saw more than just spring themes...I saw products perfect for baby themes too.  

With that in mind I kept this project simple.  I pulled out a picture of my daughter shortly after her birth. I used the number dies to make her birth date.  Think simple & easy but very thoughtful baby shower gift idea here!   Doesn't the stitching just go perfectly with the sweet little baby picture?  And, isn't my daughter so sweet too, lol?  She's six now and growing up way too quickly before my eyes!

The stitched butterfly up in the corner is one from the Stitched Butterflies set that I added an enamel dot to.

What BETTER alphabet and number dies for a baby theme then STITCHED?  There is just something so homey about the letters with the stitches...they truly are perfect for baby projects! 

The products that I used today are:





With this release we are saying goodbye to a long-time Lil' Inker Design Team Member, Alicia.  She will surely be missed!  I always enjoyed seeing her creations and how her creative mind worked with the products!  We are also welcoming a new Design Team member who has also taken on the additional responsibilities of Director of Social Media.  Her name is Erin Schreiner and you'll be hearing from her a lot!  Speaking of social media, did you know LID is on Instagram?  Check them out at lilinkerdesigns.  

There are THREE $15 store credits to Lil' Inker Designs up for grabs during this release!  The more blogs you comment on, the better your chances are of winning!  Good luck!
