January New Release Hop Day 1

Well, hello there!!! Happy new year and welcome to Lil' Inker Designs' first release of 2017!


I have a whole big bunch of dies and stamps for you that are perfect for Valentine's Day, love-themed cards and paper-crafted projects!

Let's get right into what we're releasing this week!


First up is our new Be Mine Greeting Die. This die will cut away a heart shape and inside the greeting will remain. A sweet little line of stitching will also be left around the outside of your heart. This is a great die for mass-producing cards. It adds maximum impact to your card fronts with minimal effort.


Our Filled Heart Stamp Set is really fun and a follow up to popular sets like it that we've previously released. The space in the center of the heart is the perfect spot for the included greeting stamps. You will love stamping this image or heat embossing it or watercoloring it.


This Dual Stitched Heart and Kisses Word Die Set was designed to perfectly cut out the heart image in the Filled Heart Stamp Set. It features Dual Stitching and we've even included a Kisses word die in the center which is done in a brush script font. Certainly useful and fun even on its own without the coordinating stamps. I love this heart shape!


MORE HEARTS!!!! We have lots of them for you in this release. This is a set of two Fringe Scalloped Heart Dies. The fringe border appears on both sides of the cut line meaning the set will cut two hearts with fringe and the negative cuts will have fringe around them making them fun frames or the beginning of fun shakers! This detail was designed to be slightly lifted and bent up with fingers adding texture and depth to your projects. However, it's just as cute and visually appealing if this detail is left to lay flat. Love these!!!!


This is a FUN stamp set!!!!! This is our new Love You More Stamp Set. I started out with these lovely and hand drawn greetings and then I thought it would be most excellent to include hearts that the sentiments can be stamped on and when I got to that I envision these hearts as balloons as well. So, all the phrases in this set will stamp on these perfectly oversized hearts and if you'd like to make them into balloons use the balloon tail (just above the "together" sentiment) and then stamp a string!

Of course we designed dies to go with this set which will perfectly cut out your hearts and balloons!



Jam-packed with hearts this set is a MUST HAVE. I love the hand drawn feel of these heart shapes. If you'd like to use these dies to cut out balloons start by stamping your heart shape first, then die cut with the balloon die and then add in your balloon tail stamp for perfect alignment.


Call all cat-lovers! We've finally brought you a Kitty Hugger Die and Stamp Bundle! Our kitty was designed to hold a small chocolate treat or lollipop or even a pencil. The stamps included can be used to add character to your kitty die cut but also includes some sweetly done sentiments perfect for treat-giving. If you love our hugger dies you will love this newest addition.


Oh, yes we did!! I know. You love these border dies and we've brought you one more for your collection. Check out more about our Love You Much Border Die here. This one is perfect for creating interesting layouts with a text element!


This is a die that we've had produced since last year and now seemed like the perfect time to release it. Our new Today & Always Greeting Die is perfect for love cards, Valentine's Day and even anniversaries! A must have for sure!!!!


More brush script dies for you but this time with a Valentine's Day and love theme!! You will receive a set of three dies; Hugs, Love and Sweet. These dies are perfectly oversized and perfect for all your paper crafted projects.

Would you like to see some projects??


First up, I wanted to make a project showing you how versatile the Today & Always Greeting Die is. As you can see I've cut it out of it's square frame and paired with with the lion image from our Lovie Friends Stamps which I love so much! Also featured here are our Wonky Squares Dies and our Dual Dotted Squares Dies. So simple to re-create and make lots of!





With these three projects, I wanted to show you how awesome the Be Mine Greeting Die is for mass-producing cards. Here I started with some watercolor paper and my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers which I watercolored in stripes. Once my water colored panels were dry I used my Be Mine Greeting Die to die cut my sentiment which I then backed onto coordinating color cardstock. Love these!!!!!
