Lil' Inker Designs April Release: Day 3



Welcome back to the last day of the Lil' Inker Designs release!  All of the products are currently available in the Lil' Inker Designs store, so you can start shopping now! :)   

Have a Nice Day
This first card uses a new stamp set in a series of stamps that Lil' Inker Designs has released in a similar style.  This new addition, called Have a Nice Day, is another beautiful image that makes producing quick & simple cards a breeze.

Jen Carter Have a Nice Day One Love Quilted Swirl wm

I started with the background of this card using the Quilted Swirl Stitched Pattern die on white cardstock.  I then die cut the banner from the new One Love stamp set and cut it in half to place underneath the main image panel.  I embossed the Have a Nice Day stamp in white and then die cut the border with the Dual Dotted Rectangle dies. 

Graduation Class 2018
If you remember last year Lil' Inker Designs released a wonderful graduation stamp set called Grad Class shown below.  This year there is a Grad Class 2018 Supplement stamp set and the best part is that it is retailing for a mere $5!  If you didn't purchase the first complete set, it is on sale for $10 and so with the supplement you are only paying for the price of the original set but getting a full set plus the supplement.



Reach for the Stars
Our school colors are orange & black so usually all of the graduation cards I create match that theme.  This year we have quite a few graduations to attend so this updated set comes at the perfect time.

Jen Carter Grad Class 2018 Dotted Chevron Shaker Tag One Love wm

I started this card by die cutting the orange cardstock with the Cover Up Die Dotted Chevrons.  If you would like to see a video on an easy and quick way to get out of those little dots easily check out my Youtube video here.  I die cut the black banner with the One Love die set and the image panel with the Shaker Tag die set.  I stamped the sentiment with the Grad Class 2018 Supplement stamp set and the graduation hat and the little orange stars with the original Grad Class stamp set.  I adhered that panel with dimensional tape.

Jen Carter CP WooHoo Eat Cake Cupcake Stand Party Hats

For this card I started by stamping the black & white background.  I arranged the sentiments on the Large Rectangle Acrylic Grid which is the perfect size for this technique and it makes lining up the sentiments a cinch!  I then stamped the sentiments over and over until my card front was filled and added in a few little filler stamps to fill in any gaps.

I used two add-on die sets on this card.  The cake/hat stamp is from the add on set called I Eat Cake DiesThis cake stand fits the cupcakes in the coordinating stamp set perfectly but I also thought it served well for party hats!  I die cut the party hats from another add-on die set called WooHoo dies.  The hats are stamped with Party Dress, Be Mine (included in previous SOA set and will be available at a later date), Fiesta Blue, Flirty Fuchsia, Orange Twist & Sauna.  I attached them to the card base with dimensional tape.

Lil' Inker Designs April Release: Day 2



Welcome to day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs Release!  All of the products being shown today are currently available in the Lil' Inker Designs store!  

Today I have two cards to share with you and both use a variety of new products but they each have the Best Mom stamp & Best Mom die sets in common.  The unique thing about the Best Mom sets is the size of the flower!  Finished it is about 3" in size.  The other unique thing is that the petal stamp is also the same stamp you use for the leaves, just using the other side "up".


Have a Wonderful & Amazing Day
For this first card I created a framed card using another new product called Shaker Tag Die Set and also focused on the smaller flowers in the Best Mom stamp set.

Jen Carter Hand Drawn Happiness Best Mom Shaker Tag Quilted Swirl wm

I first die cut the white card panel with the Quilted Swirl Stitched Pattern die, one of my favorites from a past release.  I then used the Shaker Tag Die Set to cut out the window in the middle.  I stamped the gorgeous sentiment from the new Hand Drawn Happiness stamp set and colored in the sprigs with a white gel pen.  I die cut the leaves and flowers from the Best Mom die set and then stamped them with the coordinating Best Mom stamp set with Pixie Dust, Tiki Torch, Be Mine, It's a Girl & Lime Rickey inks.  

Hello
I mentioned this before but the size of the largest flower in the Best Mom stamp set is such a fun size to use on a card!  Here I paired it in 3's but you could easily use just one flower on a card and it would still be beautiful!

Jen Carter Best Mom Hello Dotted Chevron wm

I first die cut that background with the new and fabulous Cover Up Die Dotted Chevrons and backed it with a light purple cardstock to match one of the flowers.  If you are looking for an easy way to quickly remove all of those dots pain free 😉, check out my Youtube video here.  I die cut three of the large flowers & leaves and stamped them with Amuse Lichen & Papaya ink, Fresh Ink Pool & Mama Elephant Sweet Lilac ink.

I die cut the Hello Word die out of white glitter paper and adhered it to the top of the flowers. I used a drop of Simply White Nuvo Crystal Drops in the center of two of the flowers and sprinkled it with glitter to dry.

Lil' Inker Designs April Release: Day 1

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


Brushed Plaid Hello
Let's start with a Public Service Announcement: If you don't purchase anything else this release, you NEED to purchase the Brushed Plaid stamp set...seriously!! It's that good and so versatile!  You might need to see it to believe it so here you go.


The Color of Spring
For this first card with the Brushed Plaid stamp set I wanted to create a soft feel.

Jen Carter Brushed Plaid Spring Wreath Hello wm

I first stamped the Brushed Plaid stamp background in a soft pink, Sugar by Fresh Ink, and then stamped the gray lines for emphasis, Slate by Fresh Ink.  This is an amazing background stamp!  I love how it looks stamped in bold colors, stamped in rainbow colors and stamped in soft colors too.  Believe me when I tell you that this stamp is calling your name. 😁

Jen Carter Brushed Plaid Spring Wreath Hello Closeup

For the focal point, I die cut one of the beautiful wreaths in the Spring Wreath die set with white cardstock.  I also die cut a few of the leaves included in that die set and adhered to the wreath.  I die cut the Hello Word Die three times and stacked them together to create dimension.  The Hello die set also includes a shadow for the hello that I didn't use here.

Stronger Together
We all strive to be the best we can be and to love our neighbors.  In today's society it is sometimes hard to find love and unity.  This set promotes coming together, working together, dreaming together and living in peace with one another.  We will all have differences, strive for different goals, have different passions but if we choose to love one another as Christ has loved us, we can make a difference in our world, one person at a time.

Jen Carter One Love  Stronger wm

For this card I started by die cutting the heart with the One Love dies on Midnight cardstock.  I then stamped the heart with the coordinating One Love stamp set and embossed it using Zing Glitter Gold embossing powder. I die cut the Love die and the banner die with the One Love dies and then stamped the sentiment from the One Love stamp set in Aquatini ink.

Here is a closeup of the glittery embossed heart.
