Big Christmas and a Big Announcement! {Lil' Inker Designs}

It's a two-post kinda day! For today's Go-to Gal Designer Challenge, scroll down, or click HERE!


Hey friends! I have some news! I've joined the design team at Lil' Inker Designs, (woohooo!) and today I am thrilled to take part in the October new release blog hop! We'll have posts for the next three days, sharing BRAND NEW stamps and dies, and each day there will be one lucky winner of a $15 gift certificate! {If you're just joining us here, start back over on the Lil' Inker blog!}

For today's card I used the new Cover Up Snowflake Die. This die is SO cool. It creates a background that fills a card front. I stamped the sentiment from the new Big Christmas Stamps, onto vellum, which I die cut with the Flags & Tags banner die.  I finished off the card with some simple twine and a button.



Here are the new goodies I used! (They're available in the Lil' Inker store NOW!)


Next on the hop is the lovely Lea Lawson

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Come on back tomorrow - okay!?

Love the red. Putting the sentiment on the vellum so the background pops was a great idea.
thanks for sharing.

Congratulations on the new DT gig! What a FUN team to be a part of! Your card is lovely and easy to mass produce too! I never used to like the idea of black on a Christmas card, just seemed morbid and depressing at first, but now I am totally smitten with it in combinations with red & white! :)

Laura Pryor said...

This might be my favorite card of yours from the release! I love the use of the sentiment on vellum over your cover up snowflake panel. I didn't see you blog the card where you stitched the word dies and used the border builder die. Did I miss it? It's so great! You've got to share it!! It was so lovely I used it for one of our website's homepage graphics!
