You Made It Monday Vol. 35

It's time for another You Made It Monday!  We are super excited to share some more amazing creations that you, our customers, have created and shared with us online.  You Made It Monday is now a monthly feature and there are prizes!!!  That's right!  If you're featured in our You Made It Monday post you will receive a $10 gift certificate to Lil' Inker Designs!  Isn't that awesome??

You know how much we love seeing what you create with the products in the Lil' Inker Designs store.  You never cease to amaze us with your talent and creativity. Here is just a sampling of the awesome creations you have shared with us lately.

It's finally Spring and I couldn't help but share some amazingly springy creations that I found including this adorable card from Laurie, @crazycardlady.

I just love this card and how Laurie used the Fringe Scalloped Circles Dies to frame the adorable bicycle from Rustic Spring Stamps.  The flowers in the basket and the little sprigs of grass are too sweet and I love the ombre look on the Welcome Word Die.  Finished off the with the banner from the Warm Welcome Dies and the cute sparkle from the pink flowers, this card is a breath of fresh air!  Thanks, Laurie.

Next up, I just love this cheery card from Lindsey, @occasionalcrafting.

Why does gingham just feel springy?  I love this background and how Lindsey really made this sentiment from The Little Things Stamps the star of the card by highlighting it with these amazing blooms also from The Little Things Stamps and cut with The Little Things Dies.  

This card pops and you can see even more gorgeous cards using these stamps as well as the Hello Beautiful Stamps, Hello Beautiful Dies, and Cover Up Die: Stitched Woodgrain created by The 12 Kits of Occasions Design Team.  Thanks SO much for creating this amazing card, Lindsey, and thanks to the team for featuring our products in February. 

Next is a gorgeous card by Keren Baker that I found while wondering the web one day.

In case you don't already know, I really love our Really Rosemaling Stamps.  You can do SO much with them and Keren shows off their versatility in this card.  You must check out her blog where she shares another card in this same post that is equally as stunning.  I love her combo of colors and the gradients that she gets in each and every flourish.  These colors pop again that dark blue background.  Amazing!

Spring is all about new life and what better way to celebrate that than with this gorgeous baby card from Marcie, @marciesharp.

How adorable is this?  From the sweet pink background created using Quilted Stitched Pattern Die to the sweet wreath created with the Warm Welcome Dies.  Marcie used a simple flower and a bit of foliage from the Warm Welcome Stamps and it is perfect in it's simplicity.  The sentiment created using the Welcome Word Die and the few sequins add just the right finishing touch.  Thanks so much for sharing, Marcie!

The final card features a very inventive background created by Samantha, @mylittlepaperworld.

Who in the world would have thought to make a background this gorgeous from the belly of a springy bird?  Well, that's exactly what Samantha did!  She used a stamp from Hello Beautiful stamped in various shades of gray.  It turned out amazingly and I also love how she wrapped the circle with a sentiment from The Little Things around the cardfront holding the twine in place.  Such a fun design and a unique way to use a stamps.  Great job, Samantha!
