New Release Hop - Day 2 - Sunshine Dies & Sun Sentiments

Hello there! I'm having so much fun already and it's only Tuesday!

I'm here for day 2 of our new release hop featuring our brand new Sunshine Dies and Sun Sentiments stamp set! If you're just joining us, we've released these great Sunshine Dies in two sizes, small and large. They make the perfect sun for your projects as focal image, to compliment our Rainbows & Clouds sets, to create a sky or scene on any project....this set really knows no limits. Our coordinating Sun Sentiments stamps are done in a fun and funky font...a repeat of the font used most in the Rainbows & Clouds set so that these sets can easily mix and match. The rays on each of our dies feature our Signature stitching detail which really just makes these dies SHINE!

The dies can be purchased separately or together as a set with the coordinating sentiment stamp set!

Let's have a look.....





I thought I would share an out of the box idea/use for our new dies. I thought they would make neat flowers which I've created by layering the dies together. Here it is...



For my largest flower I layered 2 large suns and added a small sun with a foam square and made sure to bend up all the rays so that my flower appears more lifelike. For the small flower I layered 2 small suns using a foam square in between for some dimension. I am LOVING the effect of these flowers! They are totally adorable and really unique! I love that once my flowers were done that the centers were large enough for an embellishment! What did I do before I had these dies in my collection? I am absolutely in love with how they turned out. I hope you are too!

Don't forget we're giving away 2 $10 store credits. To be eligible to enter please leave comments along our hop this week. You will have until Sunday, July 15th at 11:30 PM EST to comment to be eligible.

I hope you're enjoying our brand new Sunshine Dies and Sun Sentiments which are available here in our LID Store.

Stay tuned for tomorrow. We are releasing a set that you are going to LOOOOVE!! We've been working on it for what feels like FOREVER and the idea and concept was suggested by our very own Design Team Member, Emily Leiphart!! It should have been released back in May/June but it just wasn't quite ready for its debut until now! I love it soooo much and I think you're going to FLIP for it. Has anyone been over to our shop to check it out yet??

On another note, we have SOOOO many exciting things going on here behind the scenes at Lil' Inker! Ariana is knocking it out of the park with art. We're adding a brand new line of illustrated stamps to our collection, we're getting ready to release the most adorable 2 Cute Ink images ever, we've added a graphics designer to our team who you know and love AND........{drum roll} we're finally getting ready to introduce our brand new Lil' Inker Designs Color Team!!! I am SOOOOOO excited! So stay with us for some really great things to come!

I'm going to send you on your way now to the AMAZING Alicia Thelin of Scrappy Betties! I can't WAIT to see what she's got for us today.

Enjoy the rest of our hop!
