Lil' Inker Designs January Release: Day 1

Hello and welcome to the January Lil' Inker Designs release! The new products are already available in the Lil' Inker Designs store so you can start shopping now 


There is a sale going on too!  If you spend $75 you get a FREE Quilted Stitched So Knotty die valued at $22!  Use code SOKNOTTY when you checkout!



I have two cards to share today and I'm excited to get started!  

Best Friends are Like Thighs...
This sentiment cracks me up!  "Best friends are like thighs...they stick together!"  How fun for a friend card!  This sentiment is from the new Galentine's Day stamp set.  What is Galentine's Day you ask?  Well, I looked that up for you and found this explanation:
Galentine's Day is a holiday Amy Poehler's Parks and Rec character Leslie Knope created that occurs every year on Feb. 13, the day before Valentine's Day. As Leslie herself explains on the show:
"Oh, it's only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies."  
So...now that you know that, on to the card!

Jen Carter Farm Love, Galentine's Day, Quilted So Knotty, Wonky Rectangles wm

First I started with the free gift with a $75 purchase Quilted Stitched So Knotty die for the background of the card. I love the texture it added.  I die cut the animals with the Farm Love Dies and then stamped the images with the coordinating Farm Love Stamp Set and colored them with copics.  What an adorable set!  And I love that this set can be used for so many occasions including Valentine's Day, Birthdays, Belated Birthdays, friendship, etc! 


Jen Carter Farm Love, Galentine's Day, Quilted So Knotty, Wonky Rectangles Closeup wm

For the sentiment I die cut one of the stitched Wonky Rectangle Dies out of patterned paper and then stamped the sentiment from the Galentine's Day stamp setThe little red hearts, stamped with Rockin' Red ink, come from the Love is Love stamp set.   I popped up the sentiment panel and the animals.

You're the Thelma to my Louise
This sentiment is, of course, a nod to the 1991 movie Thelma & Louise who were BFF's. :)  I went rainbow crazy on this card.

Jen Carter Quilted XOXO, Love Honey Dies, Galentine's Day wm

I started by die cutting the super cute Quilted Stitched XOXO die in 8 different colors of cardstock.  Then, I cut each piece a part by rows for each color creating lots of wonderful rainbow colored strips!  I have made so many rainbow cards with these strips which I'll be sharing over the next few weeks.  

Jen Carter Quilted XOXO, Love Honey Dies, Galentine's Day Closeup wm

I used the Love is Love dies to spell out LOL (Laugh Out Loud) and also used the Quilted Stitched XOXO die to create the fun pattern on the letters also.  I popped those up with dimensional tape.  I then heat embossed the sentiment from the  Galentine's Day stamp set in white.

Jen these cards are spectacular! I love how the piggy in the middle looks like he's holding on to his animal friends and I love how you chose to use the sentiment from Galentine's Day here. I love love love that you did your research on the meaning of Galentine's Day - that is AWESOME!!!
I couldn't possibly love your delicious rainbow card more especially that it features LOL! I see lots of possibilities here when using some of our snarky sentiments and then creating that LOL! That's very clever!
Thank you! You always manage to think outside the box and I enjoy it so much!
