Lil’ Inker Designs February Blog Hop: Day 3

Sarah_bicycle_Rustic Spring Stamps Rustic Spring Dies

Win Entire Release BadgeIt’s already day three of this month’s Lil’ Inker Designs blog hop. We released a bunch of new products this week, and I have three things I can’t wait to share. But first I need to make sure you have the details on our hop. It starts at the Lil’ Inker Designs blog, and continues through Lisa Henke’s blog, until you land here. We’re giving away a huge prize to one lucky commenter, so be sure to leave a comment before the drawing!

First, I need to share the absolutely adorable Rustic Spring stamps and their coordinating dies. For this card, the whimsical images reminded me of my old A Muse wood stamps, so I picked a layout that I would’ve used 10 years ago. I stamped and die cut the bike and spring flowers, then colored them with Copic markers. I added two strips of washi tape before mounting the bike to my 4.25″ square card base.

Sometimes, we got it right in the olden days.

Next, I made an elegant setting for the bunny in Rustic Spring. I stamped my card base with Corner Adorner in a coral pink, then mounted a die cut and colored bunny. I stamped a small “happy” from my Vintage Ink stamp set in gray ink. Then I used the Brush Script Spring Word dies to cut a stack of Easter sentiments that I could layer with glitter glue.

Finally, I used the Sweet Celebration dies as the focus of this warm, sunny card. I started by covering my card base with sunflower paper. Then I die cut the heart wreath from kraft and dark brown card stock. I ran just the center of the heart, in brown, through with the Quilted Stitched So Sunny die before placing it into the kraft wreath and adhering it to the card. Next came the banner, stamped with a sentiment from the Sweet Celebrations stamp set. And finally, I cut mustard yellow card stock with the Celebrate Word die and placed it over the heart and banner with foam adhesive.

    Old, new, what does it matter? The important thing is that you are incredibly talanted. In each card you found a special twist that made it unique and, may I say, unforgettable (at least for me :-)) Sunflowers? Brilliant!
