Greetings and Salutations - Lil' Inker Designs


Hello friends! Welcome to Day 1 of the Lil' Inker  Designs July release blog hop! We have some beautiful, crafty goodness to share with you this week, so I hope you'll join us for the next three days of inspiration! (If you didn't start at the Lil' Inker Designs blog, head back there first, so you don't miss a thing!) 

Today's cards feature the brand new stamp set called, Greetings and Salutations. This set has sentiments that will mix and match with so many other Lil' Inker sets, although on this first card you can see that this set can absolutely stand alone as well, creating a simple but striking card. (See that beautiful Lil' Inker 6x6  Ombre Stripes patterned paper too!? Swoon!)


Next up, another Greetings and Salutations card, but this one features the new Quilted Flowers Dies as well. 
The Quilted Flowers Dies set comes with three dies - and it is really fun to play with. There's an outline shape, (which isn't shown on this project) and then the swirly flower die (the black flowers you see) and then the stitched/quilted line die. The quilted line die can be used on it's own (as seen on the white panel of this card.) or it can be used right on the swirly flower (as seen on my little petal card below.) 


See the fun detail that the stitch lines add to the flower? I just love that! 

I'm always a sucker for fun floral stamps and dies, so this die will get a lot of use in my stash! 

Thanks so much for hopping with us today. Remember to come by and comment along the blog hop each day for a chance to win one of three $15 gift certificates to the Lil' Inker Designs shop! And now. . .without further ado, go check out all the new goodness in the Lil' Inker Shop, because I'm your last stop today!
