New Release Hop Day 5: Bonus Goodie Item/Group Post Day

Hi there!! Wowee! What a fun week this has been! Our designers have really created some amazing projects with our new goodies and I have had the best time creating cards and projects this week and reading every one's comments - thank you for that!

Before I do a brief recap of the new products and some projects from this week we have one more new thing to share with you! It's this week's Bonus Goodie item! Have a look....

This brand new Stitched Sentiment Flag Die just about completes our Sentiment Flags Collection!
It is the exact same size as our original die except it has our signature stitching detail. It will fit all of our sentiments from Sentiments Flags Original and Sentiment Flag Additions Stamp Sets! I wanted this for my collection and I'm really glad that we're able to bring this to you and for a limited time, our new Stitched Sentiment Flag Die is available at a reduced price!
Have a look at the project I made to share with you today...
Oh, gosh I love how this card turned out! It's so pretty and vibrant in person and there is something about that stitching detail that just makes me giddy!
This was super easy to make. I die cut 5 flags from card stock and glued them to my card base and added the chipboard glitter stickers, added twine and stamped my sentiment which is from our  Rainbows & Clouds Stamp Set.
Truth be told, I almost showed up to this party with no project today because I liked this so much that I thought I should submit it to the current Paper Crafts call but I REALLY wanted to share this with our customers and fans today so you can see how awesome this new die is :)
Admittedly, this has been a very busy week here at *headquarters* so normally I would grab all the projects made by our designers this week and make this a lengthy post. I am going to hold off on that as I'm sure you would rather hear that I spent the night mailing out your goodies instead and that's precisely what I did!
Instead, I'm going to share all of the new products with you here and the projects I made to show them off and then I plan to return with a re-cap post AND we will announce the hop prize winners as well as the winner of our informal challenge from last week.
Here is everything we've released this week just in cased you missed any of it!
Balloon Dies - pure awesomess! You thought so too because they are all gone BUT more will be here in about 10 days or so. Be sure to jump on our notification list is you missed out on the first batch and would really like them for your collection. You will NOT be disappointed. The sizes are PERFECT and the overlays are super fun to play with!

What's a party with balloons and no party hats? It's NOT a party! HA! These guys are really quite fun to build and I think work perfectly with our new Balloon Dies. It's the little embellishments included in this set that really make them come to life!

You're Invited is a brilliant stamp set designed by Karen Baker. She hit the nail on the head here AND it's even more cool because the invitation stamps fit in the center of out Texture Plate: Frame 1! Love! Great fonts too! Paired with the coordinating Balloon Dies and Party Hats Dies it's a homerun!

Ba-BOOM!!! That's the sound of my head exploding from the pure excitement that these dies bring me, LOL!!!! There is nothing better than having a die that cuts a stitched border all the way around the border of my card base...NOTHING......EXCEPT maybe that this set also has five other dies all of which cut rectangles with our signature stitched border! They make perfect layered mats, are great for sentiment panels and can even make cute tags...HELLO!!

Our Stitched Sentiment Flag almost completes our Sentiment Flags Collection...I say almost just in case there's more :)'s a great little piece to have especially at the reduced price we're offering for a limited time.

Ghostie Witch is probably my favorite image and sentiment combo of all time! If this doesn't grab you I don't know what will! It's simple to color or even paper piece and I just love it!! What's so neat about our 2 Cute Ink sets is that we always try to give you more with the background/scene builders. Gotta love that moon and stars! This is a hit for Halloween for SURE!!

Our Sugar Kissed Cottage line is really starting to take could it not? Vintage images are so hot and ours are exceptionally cute! Best Witches is fabulous and I think everyone should have one!

Carving Pumpkins was really fun to color. I love this sweet little boy and girl and I'm just loving the font combos on these sets! They are so well done! I feel like you really get a lot for your money in these small sets!

What can I say about Thanksgiving Wishes? The little boy with his tongue sticking out and rubbing his hungry tummy is the greatest! There aren't a ton of Thanksgiving sets out there and this one is surely a hit! It's PERFECT for fall.....I envision a sweet tag as a hostess thank you or even fun place settings!
Here is everything I personally made using all of our new goodies.......and let me just stop for a second......I was just saying in a post last week or so how I felt like my mojo had left me....I SO ENJOYED making cards this week and last week....I can't even begin to tell you! The best thing that could have ever happened for my card making mojo was 5 half days of preschool.....HA!!!! And I'm not even saying that to be funny! It's great for my son, of course, but seriously.....I had time to CRAFT people....greatest thing ever....I digress.
Before I show you my pictures, remember to please leave some love along our hop as we have 2 secret prize blogs and prizes to give away! Amy Kolling is your next stop today...I can't WAIT to see what the team has for you today! I hope you enjoy!
Thank you! Thank you for hopping this week! Thank you for your support of Lil' Inker Designs! Thank you for sharing Lil' Inker with your crafty friends. Thank you!!! And thank you for stopping by today!
