Cozy Winter Wishes Snowflake Projects {Lil' Inker Designs}

Hello friends! It's Day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs October Release! Hop with us and comment along the way, for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate each day! (If you're just starting here, head to the Lil' Inker Designs blog to start at the beginning!)

On today's first card,  I used two new products. Cozy Winter Wishes is a beautiful stamp set with sentiments and simply lovely snowflakes. I am always a sucker for snowflakes. (Maybe because living in Florida, I don't see many snowflakes!) The Border Builders die set is going to be such a versatile set in my die collection. There are 5 border dies to create pieces that can be used together or individually, creating scenes, strips and borders. I used the wavy line border to create the panel my sentiment is on. Two quick passes through the machine and I had this fabulous customized piece.

After I stamped my large snowflake, I took a water brush and an ink pad and just grabbed a little ink and brushed it over my snowflake to add a little color. It doesn't show in the picture, but after it dried, I added some glittery goodness with a Wink of Stella - I'm just in love with the subtle sparkle these glitter brushes can add.  

(Patterned paper on this card is from Close To My Heart - called Snowhaven)
Next up, I created another card using the Cover Up Die: Snowflakes. I shared a red and white version on yesterday's post, but I really REALLY like to mix up the holiday colors a bit, and I thought pink and blue could be fun accent colors with the snowflakes. The sentiment is from Cozy Winter Wishes, and the banner die is from Flags & Tags. The Cover Up dies make it so easy to mass produce cards - Just fold a card base, die cut the background, and adhere it, then add a quick sentiment layer. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. Remember to comment along your way for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to Lil' Inker Designs!

I like the patterned paper on the background of the first card. Had kind of an alpine feel to it. Fit in with the snowflakes.
The second card is so pretty. The pink is great.
