lil' inker designs

Wohoo, finally my Lil' Inker Designs dies and stamps arrived and I had the chance to play with them! You would not believe how jealous I was of the other DT girls as their parcels arrived and mine didn't. However, I'm thankful that eventually I did get happy mail and was able to play with these beauties!

To start of with I'm going to show you my favourite project of the three I've put together. A simple little tag, but oh it makes me so happy. Clean, simple and a punch of colour - just up my street.

Supplies: Stamps - Lil' Inker Designs holly jolly sentiments, Papertrey Ink tiny treats valentimen, tiny treats birthday; Inks - Versamark, Versacolor pinecone; Card - Papertrey Ink vintage cream; Paper - Cosmo Cricket pixie-licious; Dies - Lil' Inker Designs holly jolly, Papertrey Ink mat stack 5; Punch - Stampin' Up word window; Brads - Stampin' Up in color

I die cut those beautiful large holly leaves out of some patterned paper. I love the pierced vein along the leaf, and added some chunky brads for berries. I added these to a die cut and stamped tag along with the "Deck the halls" sentiment - isn't that font gorgeous!

Now onto my next project - a card featuring the tree from LID holly jolly die set. 

Supplies: Stamps - Lil' Inker Designs holly jolly sentiments, Ink - Versamark; Card - Stampin' Up cherry cobler, soft suede, sahara sand, Papertrey Ink vintage cream; Dies - Lil' Inker Designs holly jolly die set, Papertrey Ink tage sale 3; Clear embossing powder; Button; Twine - Stampin' Up; Ribbon - Stampin' Up

I cut the tree out of two colours of card. I found that card rather than patterned paper really shows the pierced details of this lovely tree to its full effect. I mounted the tree with pop dots onto a cream tag and attached a yellow button with twine to top the tree. The twine gathered a length of striped ribbon which I notch cut at one end and cut with pinking shears at the other. Finally, I liked the subtle effect of the clear embossed sentiment on some sahara sand card. All of this was mounted onto a rich red card base with more pop dots.

For my final project today, but believe me you will be seeing plenty of these great dies and stamps in the weeks to come, I went with another clean, punchy card.

Supplies: Card - Stampin' Up sahara sand, cherry cobbler Papertrey Ink vintage cream; Paper - Cosmo Cricket pixie-licious; Twinery twine; Brads; Dies - Lil' Inker Designs jingle joy die set

I die cut the letters 'j' and 'y' out of a piece of cream card, leaving enough room for a holly wreath 'o'. The wreath is made of small holly leaves interspersed with patterned brads. A simple twine bow finishes it off.

 I hope you've enjoyed seeing these projects as much as I enjoyed making them! If you want to see more details of the products I've used today pop over to Lil' Inker Designs where the dies and stamps are available to purchase.
