Good morning and welcome to the last day of the January 2018 release for Lil’ Inker Designs! We’re introducing a bunch of fabulous love-themed stamps and dies and they’re all available right now! I love that Laura doesn’t make you wait to shop the new release so I totally understand if you want to go shop now, but make sure you come back and comment for a chance to win the entire January release! That’s correct…one lucky commenter will win everything! There’s more details on how to win at the end of my post! Have you gone shopping yet? I’d love to know what you picked up! 🙂
My first card today is dedicated to all my crafty lady friends! 🙂
I kept it pretty simple but bold and stamped the Love is Love sentiment using my MISTI in ombre shades of pink ink! Then I trimmed it and adhered it to a white card base with foam mounting tape. I stamped the sentiment from Galentine’s Day onto black cardstock with versamark, heat-embossed it with white embossing powder, and adhered it to the card!
I love that black and pink combo! 🙂
My last card for the release was loosely inspired by the first card. I did a loose ombre pink watercolor wash on a piece of white watercolor paper and then ran it through using the Quilted Stitched XOXO die. I die-cut the Love You More scripty heart from grey cardstock and adhered it over the XOXO panel. Finally I finished the card with a big bow of metallic silver thread and a sprinkling of iridescent pink, silver, and clear sequins and hearts!
And that’s it for the January release! Did you have any favorites?
