Happy World Card Making Day 2018

Hello there, crafty friends!!!

Happy World Card Making Day!!!!!



I celebrate, I'm stopping by with a fun post for you today and a couple of projects I made. Lil' Inker Designs has two categories of products called Cover Up Dies and Quilted Stitched Dies. Our Cover Up Dies typically cut out a rectangle piece with a pattern or design cut into it that can be adhered to a card front while our Quilted Stitched Dies add a stitched pattern or background directly onto your card front. I love them because they each add visual interest and texture to cards fast and beautifully. These are some of the best tools a card maker can have - products that give you versatility but beautiful projects quickly and they're what I always reach for when making a card.

When I realized that celebrating World Card Making Day was quickly approaching I thought it would be the perfect time to do a sale on both of these die categories AND release a brand new Cover Up Die!!! Let's get right to the goodness!!!!

Here is a look at our brand new Cover Up Die: Diagonal Plaid.


This die is so cleverly designed because it's meant to be layered but only one die is required to get these gorgeous layered results. You can actually achieve a tri-colored plaid by diecutting with two different colors of cardstock and using a third colored card base. 

This new die is on SALE THIS WEEKEND in honor of World Card Making Day. Read on for more details.

Would you like to see this in action? Here are a couple of things I made using this great new die.


Here, to make my background, I simply cut my background using my new Diagonal Plaid Die twice from white cardstock. I was able to make the cuts layer perfectly by rotating one of the layers to get this dimensional background. I added both layers over kraft cardstock. I really like this look. Then, I made my focal images. I started with my Coffee Cozy 2 Die which I cut from teal stock. Then, I adorned it with the florals you see from our new Fall Foliage Stamp and Die Set which I simply heat embossed in white and die cut. My sentiment is from my Bouquet of Roses Stamp Set and the banner die is from the Warm Welcome Die Set. Loving this!!!


I have to say, I think this one is my favorite of the two! Here I made a tri-colored plaid by using white and kraft plaid layers over a burnt orange base. I simply sprinkled my florals over top and once I like where they landed I picked them up with Press n' Seal, added some adhesive and fixed them to my card base. My hello sentiment was created using our Hello Word Die and I decided to use my Nuvo Gold Gilding Flakes. I don't know what I'm doing wrong but it took me FOREVER to make the sentiment just right. I need to watch a tutorial, I think, but I was able to make it work.

Wondering if you've noticed that my photos are brighter and clearer in the last few posts? I purchased a Foldio so that I could photograph any time of day in any light and get great results. It's my new favorite tool other than stamps and dies.

OK! So more about our SALE for World Card Making Day......

You Made It Monday, Vol. 53


It's time for another You Made It Monday and I can hardly wait to share the amazing creations I have spotted while looking for all that you have shared online for us to enjoy.  You guys made it hard for me this month and it sure seems like more and more of your are sharing your awesome creations which I love.  Keep it up!  We hope you enjoy our monthly You Made It Monday post as much as we enjoy sharing it with you.  So, keep sharing your creations and they could earn you $10 to spend in the Lil' Inker Designs shop.  We hope that will keep you creating with our products and keep you sharing your creations.

Here's this month's sampling of awesome creations!

First up, Stephanie (@peachykeencraftroom) shared this card on her way to the wedding!  I thought it was so cool that she thought to share her creation with us even with an event on her mind.


Our Perfect Pairs Stamps set is so fun for so many occasions and I always love seeing how you guys use it.  This little bride and groom is just he peas knees...ha ha ha!  I love how Stephanie created a window to showcase them and added some texture to the panel using our Cover Up Die: Stitched Quatrefoil.  Absolutely perfect!

Another fun card that I just couldn't help sharing comes to us from Mags, @magsoffduty.


Again, another awesome wedding card using our Perfect Pairs Stamps.  Just a touch different here but still just as adorable.  I love the couple inside the heart and popper up on a carrot patch in kraft.  The twine and banner are awesome and the cards soft edges from the Stitched Mats: Rounded Rectangles are perfection.  LOVE!

Are you ready for a fun take on a bunny?  I just couldn't help but share this card from @wadaerieri.


I never would have thought to turn our Peek-a-Boo Bunny Die into a Halloween card but how fun is that?  Nothing like a bunny playing peek-a-boo to add a little spice to your Halloween.  What a great idea!

Jen, @scatti_studios, shared this super fun shaker and I wanted to make sure you saw it.


Our line of shaker dies makes making a shaker card SO easy.  Just look at how Jen used the Apple Shaker Die here to create this card that is CAS perfection!  Did you ever think a shaker could be CAS?  This card is clean and lovely and I love what Jen filled the apple with.  So cute.

My final card to share today comes from Rachel, @racheyjaycrafts.


I couldn't help but share a little Christmas since I know so many are working on their cards.  I loved all the ways that Rachel showed off the Christmas Words Tree Die on her feed.  You will have to go check out her Instagram feed to see the others.  I chose this one for how simple it is because even with only three element, it's a knock out card.  You could make so many of these and still give each person on your list that handmade touch.  Thanks for sharing, Rachel!

We hope you enjoyed this glimpse of the amazing creations you guys are sharing using the Lil' Inker Designs products.  I can't wait to see what else I discover in the week's to come and have the pleasure of sharing them with you on our next addition of You Made It Monday.
