Lil' Inker Designs April Release: Day 1


Hello!  It's time for the next Lil' Inker Designs release! The new products are already available in the  Lil' Inker Designs store!  


If you are following along in the blog hop you should have come from Heather Hoffman's Blog!  

I have two cards to share today.

Jen Carter Painted Alpha Chevron Border Gator 1 wm

First up is this gator card. This was inspired by the new Stitched Chevron Border die. As I was playing around with it I thought it would make good teeth.  I had so much fun figuring out how to put this together.  

To make the gator, I used the "cloud" border from the Border Builder die set to cut the top of his head and the rounded stitched border from the same set to cut the bottom of his head.  I used the Stitched Chevron Border die to create the teeth.  The eye was die cut with the smallest die in the Stitched Mats: Circles die set.  The little black dot was die cut with the circle in the Anytime Tags 2 die set.

The blue sea was made using a few layers of the Fanfare Scalloped Border die.  The letters for the sentiment "Later Gator" are die cut from the new & GOTTA HAVE 😉 Pretty Painted Alphabet die set & then stamped with the coordinating Pretty Painted Alphabet stamps.  I 💗 these new alphabet stamps & dies!

Jen Carter Hootie Patootie Weather 1 wm

I am so excited about the new Hootie Patootie stamps!  My daughter & I both love owls!  I colored in the owl with copics.  To make the background, I used the Cover Up Die: Swirls with a dark teal paper and left all of the pieces in, die cut it again in a lighter green and popped up a few pieces to emphasize the rain drops.  I then used the Color Blocking die that you know I am a huge fan of (you can see a video on how to use this die here) to create the diagonal pieces at the bottom.  The sentiment also comes from the Hootie Patootie stamp set.
