You Made It Monday Vol. 6

Good morning!  We hope you had a wonderful holiday and are ready for the new year.  Can you believe it is almost 2016?  I decided to have a little fun and dig through our Flickr gallery and hunt for some cards that really show off the amazing things our customers, friends and fans have created during 2015.  I've got to say, it was hard not sharing them all.  Wow!  You guys are so creative and I'm SO glad we started this weekly feature to show off how talented our you all are.  

Thanks for a great year and we hope you are ready for another amazing year full of new Lil' Inker Designs products.  Here's just a few of the awesome creations I found from this year.
First up we have this card from Jenn Shurkus using the Stay Beautiful Stamps.

I just love how Jenn colored the gloves and added glossy accents, they really pop even on a card so full of pink.  The glittery hearts and and striped background just suck your eye right in.  You can read more about how Jenn created this card on her blog, Creative Chick. Thanks for sharing, Jenn.  This card's a total knock out!

Next up is a seriously awesome card from Julia Altermann.

Do you see the amazing rainbow of sparkle on this card?  It's GORGEOUS!  You can read all about Julia's technique for making this amazing background and glittery sentiment using the Seriously Word Die, on her blog Just One More Card.  Seriously awesome card, Julia!  Wow!

This next card by paperpicnic (Jayne) really took my breath away.

Jayne made the Sketched Floral Stamps and Sketched Floral Die Set really pop against the black background.  I love how she added the colored flowers on two layers and the stripes on either side really keep your attention on this amazing card.  You can't help but look.  Thanks for sharing, Jayne!   
Another card that couldn't help but grab my attention was this one from Sarah Haines.

Don't you just love how Sarah inked up the Boxed Up Birthday Greeting Die?  Turning it into a shaker card was absolutely brilliant.  I just adore the colors with the kraft paper.  It's so bright and cheery and a perfect birthday card.  Thanks for brightening our day, Sarah!

Next, is a card from, Kim Singdahlsen, that I know will make you feel alright.

Kim loaded this gorgeous card with Lil' Inker goodies.  I love how she used the Ombre Stripes Paper Pad to create a border along the bottom of the card.  Her sentiment using Stitched Sentiment Flag Die and Sentiment Flags Original Stamps is just perfect but the layering of Quilted Flower Die Set with vellum, totally makes this card.  You can read all about her card on Joyful Creations with Kim.  

Our final card comes from Jeanne J.

I just love how how Jeanne used the Stitched Stars Die Set to create this card.  I would never have thought to use this color combo but it's so perfect.  I also love how she created tails for her stars and the buttons.  Wow!  You can read more about her card on her blog, A Kept Life.  This card is a star!

December Release Review, Winners Announced & A Sale!!

Hi there!!! Fancy meeting you here. I hope that everyone who celebrates had a marvelous Christmas. Admittedly, I'm not yet ready for it to be over and I think it's because the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year were extraordinarily busy for me and I feel as though I may not have had enough time to enjoy the holiday build up. BUT, Christmas was indeed a wonderful celebration.
