Hey there! I’m happy to have you here as part of the very first blog hop for Lil’ Inker Designs. If you’re visiting by way of Debby’s blog, you’re headed in the right direction. If not, you’ll want to start with Laura’s blog to get all of the details on the hop and the versatile Rainbows & Clouds stamp and die set, because there are some great prizes for up for grabs if you complete the hop by leaving a comment at each stop. With a week to make your way through twelve blogs, you have plenty of time to get in on the fun.

It’s all because we want to share all the great ways to use the Rainbows & Clouds stamp and die set from Lil’ Inker. Don’t tell the other stamps, but it’s my favorite Lil’ Inker set.

I used the stitched cloud dies and a textured, shimmering paper to make my clouds. I added a little vellum and white glitter cardstock to round out this light and airy little card. Don’t you just love the shape of those clouds and the extra stitching detail at the edges? I was certainly on cloud nine when I saw how cute they were right out of the die cut machine.

To be elligible to win one of the fantastic prizes from Lil’ Inker, just leave a comment here telling me “what puts you on cloud nine?”. And then head on over to Emily’s blog for an incredibly clever take on the rainbow dies.
