Lil’ Inker Designs June Blog Hop: Day 1



19105974_10209878793342424_7472398251735368130_nHey there! And welcome to the first day of the Lil’ Inker Designs June Blog Hop.

There are loads of new goodies to share this week, so here’s the scoop: all of the new products are now available in the shop, the blog hop starts on the Lil’ Inker Designs blog, and we’re giving away the entire release to one lucky visitor who comments on all of the stops on our hop. Sounds pretty good, right?

If you’re following along, Lisa Henke’s blog was the last stop.


Today, I’m sharing a simple card made with two new stamp sets and a fantastic new quilted stitched die. I cut a white card base with the Quilted Stitched Basket Weave Die and started layering components. First, I stamped and die cut two jars from Jar of Flowers. I used the solid and accent stamps to color the jars: a light application of Distress ink and a few sprays of water gave me a great watercolor effect without actually breaking out any watercolors. I layered the two jars together to make the jar appear taller, covering the meeting point with the floral banner from Blossoms & Banners. The banner and flowers did get a little watercoloring, with a water brush and Distress ink smooshed onto a clear block.

    Gorgeous card… love that you made a custom jar size by using two jar dies and hiding the “seam” with the pretty flower banner… so ingenious!

    So sweet & summery. It really makes me want to have a mason jar full of watermelon juice. Now, if only someone would wrap wildflowers around my jar….
