Lil’ Inker Designs October Blog Hop: Day 2


The Lil’ Inker Designs blog hop is into its second day and I’m sharing projects made with the new release. But before I tell you about them, I need to tell you that today’s hop starts at the Lil’ Inker Designs blog. If you’re following the hop, Lisa Henke’s blog was your last stop. We’re also doing a big giveaway: one lucky visitor who comments on all of the blog hop posts this week will win the entire new release.

LID_Noel Word DieFirst up is a quick and simple card made with the new Noel word die. I started by covering my card base with patterned paper die cut with the largest Dual Stitched Rectangle die. Then I made a short stack of patterned paper and card stock with the Noel die that I layered over a few pieces of torn vellum. I finished it with a gold glitter dot.

I love the size and style of this die because it can hold it’s own on a simple card base and makes really clean and simple cards that are easy to mass produce. One small pack of 6×6 paper paired with this die could yield a couple dozen of these cards!


Sticking with the deer theme, I pulled out this year’s hilarious followup to our popular Naughty Santa stamp set: Rowdy Reindeer. I felt like doing a little no-line coloring, so I just die cut the reindeer and used Copic markers to color him. Then I stamped the Christmas Calories sentiment onto my stitched panel and added my little deer. I used part of the new Joy to the World stamp set and Versamark ink to create a patterned card base.
