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.

  2. Such beautiful cards Jen and a great personal message in your post about being stronger together. This is SO true. Wouldn't it be wonderful if EVERYONE got this message at the same time and really tried? However, as you said, let's try to reach folks one person at a time. All great things have to start somewhere...(((HUGS)))
