Merry and Bright Holiday cards from Lil' Inker Designs

Hooray! Hooray! It's TODAY! I'm so excited to kick off the fabulous October Release blog hop for Lil' Inker Designs. Seriously - you are in for a TREAT this week! I hope you've got your Christmas Crafty Pants on, because you're going to be fired up to start creating NOW for the holidays! 

Sooooo, without further ado. . . .I have three cards to share with you today. 

Sometimes I see a stamp set, and I just know it's going to be wildly popular - and that's just how I feel about the Oh Deer Christmas Stamp Set. This set packs such a punch, and this deer is the perfect size to really fill a card front, so it's just FUN to stamp him and color or paper-piece, and then add a few layers and embellishments. I used my Touch Twin markers to color the deer and leaves, and then I paper-pieced the banner, and stamped the berries. 

Next up, I paired the Ornamental Christmas Stamps and coordinating dies along with the Wrapper's Delight: Sunburst die to create this shiny, bold holiday card. The gold cardstock with the coral and black makes such a striking and just slightly unexpected holiday look. 

And lastly for today - a little sparkle. The Merry & Bright Holiday Greeting Die is. . . AHHHHMAZING. It it so beautiful, and it cuts perfectly. I love intricate dies that actually CUT PROPERLY, and I was quite pleased with how nicely this die does its job! Think about the quick and simple holiday cards that could be mass-produced with this baby!

So? Are you inspired yet? Continue on the hop, my crafty friends because I'm quite sure the designers will WOW you with their projects for the next three days!  Remember to comment along the way, each day, for a chance to win one of three $15 gift certificates to the Lil' Inker Designs store!
