Color Team New Release Hop Day Three: Our Brand New Line!

Hello and welcome to day three of our Color Team New New Release Hop! Today is a very, very exciting day!!!!!!! We are introducing our brand new illustrated stamp line today!!!

Please help me welcome.......

The Sugar Kissed Cottage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yahoooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Sugar Kissed Cottage is a line of absolutely fabulous vintage inspired images by creator, Lindsey Amschler. I knew as soon as I saw these images that they would be a PERFECT addition to the LID Family!

I am SO into vintage lately. I'm buying Bermuda bags from eBay, designing a guest room in an eclectic Cottage Chic style with some vintage decor, I'm incorporating vintage treasures from my grandmother's basement into the redesign of my craft room, I'm wearing vintage jewelry from my husband's Nana and wearing my Grandfather's vintage watch.....I seriously cannot get enough. If it's *old*, to me it's hip and chic all of a sudden and I'm obsessed!!!! So I thought, "Why not bring this sudden obsession into my crafty life too?". And that's when I found Lindsey's amazing images.

What's equally exciting about adding the Sugar Kissed Cottage line to our store is that right about the exact same time we added a second and brand new graphics designer to our team!!!!! You know her, you love her....... Please help me give a very warm welcome to Karen Baker!


They say that timing is everything and that is so true with Karen joining our team. All of a sudden, Lil' Inker Designs is growing and so very fast and we really needed another designer to help Ariana with her laundry list of work and POOF here we are. I saved this announcement for today because Karen actually designed all of the coordinating sentiments in our first three Sugar Kissed Cottage sets as well as the art production for manufacturing. She will work specifically with this line going forward AND she will be designing a lot of upcoming stamp sets for Lil' Inker. I couldn't be more thrilled to have her with us and I just know you are going to LOVE what she does here at Lil' Inker Designs!!!!  (wait until you see next month's release with an unbelievable set designed by Karen with amazing coordinating dies from Ariana and I. Hold onto your hats!)


So finally, without further delay, I give you the first three hip, trendy, vintage inspired stamp sets from our new collaborative line from Lil' Inker Designs and The Sugar Kissed Cottage,  ta-daaaaaaaaaa.....




AREN'T THEY AWESOME??!!!

I seriously squeal every time I see these graphics! I can't put these stamps down and I just know that once you have them YOU won't be able to put them down either!

Just like the three awesome 2 Cute Ink images we released previously this week (click HERE to see them), these sets are a new and improved standard size of 3x4 inches - perfect, perfect, perfect for card making and easier on the wallet!! A total win win!

Here is a card I made to share with you today using our brand new School Girl image. Have a look:




I started by using our Texture Plate: Frame 1 to emboss a kraft card base. Then I added a black piece of card stock to the center as though it's a chalkboard. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder so that the sentiment really pops off the background. I colored this adorable School Girl image with Copic markers and cut her out, added a large gingham bow and called it DONE! It's super cute and I think I will give it to my son's new teacher in the Fall!

Ok, so before I send you on your way for more goodness from our Color Team Designers, a reminder to leave comments along the way. We'll be picking 2 winners from a secret prize blog along our hop this week and each can choose 2 stamp sets from our new releases, a $20 prize value!

I so hope you love these images as much as I do and love the sentiments equally as much! Head on over to visit our new team member and graphics designer, Karen Baker of The Bald Dragonfly who will then send you on your way to our Color Team Designers. You will LOVE everything they have for you today! See you tomorrow for our final hop day featuring more new creations from our designers using our new stamps from our Sugar Kissed Cottage line! All six of the sets we released this week are currently available at the LID Store.

Thanks for stopping by!
