LID:: December Release Day 2



Did you enjoy yesterday's projects? Today is the second day of the December Release for Lil' Inker Designs! If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from Jen's Blog, although the complete line-up and details can be found at the Lil' Inkers Design Blog.

 
My first card today showcases the fun new Love Tags Die Cuts. (It also features embossing of a little hearts border which is so sweet!) I die cut two tags, one from purple and one from white. I stamped a greeting from the new Love Things Stamp Set, designed by Laura, onto the white tag and added a die cut heart from a previously released product,  Of the Hearts Die. I adhered the tags to a kraft card base with May Arts 3/4" Purple Chevron Twill Ribbon and Pink Waxed Cord.


Then my next card features the fun, newly released, Floating Hearts Die. I started with a white cardstock panel. I placed the die at an angle and ran it once through my die-cutting machine. I then moved the die up and ran it through again, at the same angle. I folded the card in half, stamped a sentiment from Flags & Tags, and finished the card with a May Arts Burgundy Silk Ribbon bow and Gold String Bow.



I hope you enjoy hopping through to the Lil' Inker Designs Design Team Blogs. Remember to leave comments, for a random winner will be chosen to win a gift certificate! Your next stop is Sarah!

Beautiful cards. The kraft and that pretty pink are so lovely together. I'm amazed at how elegant and gorgeous a card you have created with some heart shaped holes and a bow - less definitely is more.
