Welcome back to the last post of the last day of Lil’ Inker Designs’ January Blog Hop. I’ve seen some absolutely gorgeous things along the way and I hope you have too. As always, the full details about the hop, the release, and some fabulous prizes are available at the start of the hop on the Lil’ Inker Designs shop blog. If you’re following along, Maureen’s blog was your last stop.
As you can see, I had a little help with today’s projects, which feature the Robot Builders stamp set. My son Tom would tell you he’s a stamping pro, even though he’s not quite six years old. But he’s been helping me since he could hold a stamp and he’s watched a few YouTube videos. You know, same thing.
I let Tom pick out a few small ink pads, handed him a stack of pre-cut Love Tags and Lollipop & Pencil Treat Holders, and let him go wild with the Robot Builder stamps. I taught him a couple tricks to use multiple ink colors with one stamp. We finished these two before school and had to get everything out when he got home because he wanted to make more!
In case you didn’t see the resemblance, the tag is supposed to be Optimus Prime, Tom’s all-time favorite robot. Everything is Optimus and Transformers around here. Or Lego. Or Transformers Lego creations. Seeing how much fun it he had building robots, I had to make a robot of my own.
For my card, I started with a natural white card base embossed with the Center Point Chevron Cover Up die. Then I added a stitched heart die cut, heat embossed with a gold robot and sentiment. And around that, a gold embossed heart and the new Hearts Banners. Most of the gold elements have two or three layers of gold embossing powder for a seriously metallic finish. (Tom was seriously jealous when he saw my gold robot because it’s so much more gold than his. Apparently, it’s his third favorite color, after blue and black.)
And that’s it for the hop! The last stop is the Lil’ Inker Designs store, where you can find all of these great new products and all of our old favorites. Until next time.
