You Made It Monday Vol. 13

Monday is here again and we have some more amazing projects to share with you guys.  I have to say, I got stuck on our Flickr group this week.  Each time I looked, more and more gorgeous projects were being shared by you guys.  Thanks SO much for helping us show off Lil' Inker Designs products.  It makes us so happy to know you guys enjoy them as much as we do.    
First up, an adorable card by Gaylynn from Neat Nook Creations.

Gaylynn's combo of Vintage Ink Stamps and Send Pretty Greetings Stamps make this card such a sweet way to send thanks.  I love how she used Cover Up Die - Pieced Chevrons to emboss the background and Border Builders Die Set to make a doily like area for her focal image and sentiment.  It's a vintage masterpiece!     

Sonja's use of Stitched Hearts Die Set on this next card blew me away and I kind of wish it was something I made but I cannot watercolor like that. She has SKILLS! :)

The painted background popping through the heart is perfection!  It makes this simple card just jump off the screen.  Did you notice the sentiment?  That's Sonja's own handwriting.  You can read all about it on her blog, The Art of Stamping.  More skills!!!

Next up, Jenny.  I just can't stay away from her blog, Crafting in the Country.

I just love Jenny's style and she really shows off the versatility of Teacher Talk Stamps with these two projects.  Her choice of color combo is absolutely perfect and as she say in her blog post, it's very "Orla Keily-esque".  Ha ha!  The sentiment from All About Ampersand Stamp Set is great but my favorite part of this?  The tissue holder!  You must check out Jenny's blog to see how this works.  Genius! 

Next up, a couple of awesome projects I spotted on Instagram.  First, this stunner from @cealp.

Ceal made the Inky Flowers Stamp set shine with this amazing background and layout.  I love the touch of the rounded corner!  WOW!

Finally, a card inspired by our very own Lisa Henke from Jeanie, @gglafashionista.

Just look at that gorgeous water colored background created using Smooches Stamps.  Absolutely stunning!
