Lil' Inker Designs Release Day 3

I have three more projects to share with you today.  I know, project heavy this release but there were so many great new products to play with! :)

Jen Carter Merry Bright 1 wm

This is probably my favorite card that I made from the entire release, and one of the easiest!  I cut the gorgeous new Merry & Bright Holiday Greeting Die from white cardstock and backed it with gold & white striped paper.

I used one of the previously released stitched Snowflake Dies which are GORGEOUS :) that I cut out of gold glitter paper & adhered to the corner as an accent.  Pretty simple!

Jen Carter Angel Joy 1 wm

I really like Christmas sets that focus on the true meaning of Christmas and this new Ornamental Christmas stamp set does not disappoint!  I die cut the angel with the coordinating Ornamental Christmas dies and then stamped the angel from the set and embossed it in gold.

I die cut a mat for the card with the Stitched Mats: Side Stitched Rectangle Die and wrapped a piece that I die cut from Kraft cardstock using the Cover Up Die: Dotted Scallops.  I tied the angel piece on with red shimmer twine.  I stamped the sentiment on the bottom, another gorgeous sentiment, from the All the Christmas You'll Ever Need stamp set which is FULL of wonderful Christmas sentiments!  The font from this set just makes me happy! :)

I also thought that this idea would work well as a napkin ring for a place setting on a table.

Jen Carter Angel Joy Napkin Ring 1 wm

For this I just adapted my card from above using the Ornamental Christmas stamp set & the coordinating Ornamental Christmas dies to die cut and stamp the angel again.

I also die cut the "Joy" with the Christmas Word Tag Trio dies from red glitter paper. I tied the angel, joy tag & bells on with red shimmer twine.
