Seeing Stars: Lil' Inker Designs Release Day 3

Today is the last day of the Lil' Inker Designs release showcase!  All of the products being shown are currently available in the Lil' Inker store already!  If you are following along in the blog hop you should have come from Heather Campbell's blog and if you'd like to start at the beginning, visit Laura'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!

Before we get on to our projects today, I wanted to say a little goodbye to another team member, Alyssa Scritchfield.  She is going to leave to focus on establishing a new family business.  She will be missed!  I always enjoying seeing what her creative mind comes up with!

Jen Carter Star Kite 1.1

For my first project today, it may not be real obvious where all of the pieces came from.  As I was cutting the Quick Notes Star Fold Out die, there is a negative piece that is left (see the dark diamond on the product image below?) behind.  I would set this on my desk and the more I looked at it I thought it looked just like a kite.  So, why not put that little piece of paper to work and create a kite out of it?  I did just that!  The kite string is the balloon string from the Balloon Builders stamp set.

That green hill is made from a new product too.  It is the edge of the Frames & Flowers die set!  It made the perfect hill!  The sentiment is from the Quick Notes stamp set and the clouds are from the Cloudy Sky Die & Rainbows & Clouds die set.  And, last but not least that awesome background is from the new Quilted Stitched Pattern die.

One last card to share.

Jen Carter Star

I used the Quick Notes Star Fold Out die on this card.  The stars look like they are dancing!

I embossed the sentiment & star tails from the Quick Notes stamp set.  

Jen Carter Star Inside

When you open the card up, there is a little surprise inside!  The recipient will find a glassine envelope with a sentiment embossed on the front of it.  

Jen Carter Star Unfolded

The stars are attached to the inside frame of the Frames & Flowers die set. This frame fits perfectly into the little envie!  When you unfold the stars there is a little message.

That's all I have for you this release!  I hope you enjoy the new products!  I'd love to hear what your favorite is!

 Your next stop on the hop is over to Karen's blog!
