Good morning and welcome to the final day of the October 2017 release for Lil’ Inker Designs! We’re introducing a bunch of fabulous holiday stamps and dies and they’re all available right now! Today I’m sharing the last three cards I created for this release!
The floral image from Vintage Christmas Wreath is perfect for coloring and I decided to try it with colored pencils! I started by stamping the image with white pigment ink using my MISTI to give me an outline of the image for easy coloring. Then I put down a layer of white colored pencil and then added colors. You could also do this without the white layer but the colors wouldn’t end up quite as bright! Once I was done coloring I put the panel back into my MISTI and stamped it again with versamark before heat-embossing it with gold embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment and heat-embossed it with the same gold embossing powder. Finally I trimmed the panel down and layered it with white and dark red cardstock!
My last two cards are easy mass-produceable cards when you need to quickly build your Christmas card stash!
I started by die-cutting a white cardstock panel with the Silly Stitched dies and then swiped green dye inks to create an ombre Christmas tree shape. I wasn’t aiming for perfection here…and I really love how it turned out! I die-cut the Christmas Words Tree die from red cardstock to suggest tree trimmings and adhered it over my tree. I also die-cut it from yellow cardstock and cut off the star to add it to my card. I added a little spectrum noir clear sparkle to the star and that was it!
My final card is quite colorful but also CAS! 🙂
I just wanted to play with the Peace Love and Joy set and used pigment inks to create a non traditional holiday palette. I used pigment inks so that I could stamp on kraft cardstock and then layered the panel on pink and white cardstock. Easy peasy! 🙂
And that’s it for the October release! Here’s one more look at all the cards I created for the release!
