Tag You're It & Holiday Hop Winners!!

Good morning! I am here to announce the winners of the two Holiday Hop $10 store credits! BUT before I do I thought I would share a couple of tags I made using our Holly Jolly Set which I made for this week's CAS-ual Fridays Challenge, CFC28!

Last week, Lil' Inker was the challenge sponsor at CAS-ual Fridays and I just wanted to say a quick thank you again to Michele Gross and Julie Ranae for that great opportunity! THANKS!!

This week's challenge is "Tag You're It" and the theme is to make a clean and simple tag. I actually had time to sit down yesterday and create! Ariana came over for the day and we crafted and chatted and had lunch AND we brainstormed loads of ideas for upcoming products that are so exciting and you will LOVE them!!! We had a great day!

Here are the tags I made....

I hope you like them. I am really in love with both of our new releases, Holly Jolly and Jingle Joy and we're are just beyond thrilled at the response they've received from you our fans and from our amazing designers too!

Welcome to Holiday Release Day 5: Group Post Day!!

Happy 11/11/11!!! Well, this week just flew by! Today is the last day of our Holiday Release Hop and it's group post day! Each designer from our team is posting today featuring a project using Jingle Joy or Holly Jolly or a fabby combo of's sort of an anything goes day to see what else we can do with these wonderful new sets!

Here is a card I made using our new Holly Jolly die and stamp set....

I can't believe I ever went a Christmas without these Holly Leaf dies in my collection! LOL! I cannot put them down! Here is a a close up of these fabby dies....Don't you just love that center detail?

My wreath was VERY easy to make using a circle die and a scallop circle die. The result was then embossed with a woodgrain texture plate and red rhinestones added as berries for a little bling! Of course my Holly Leafs was the perfect accent tied off with some gold twine.

I honestly don't think that cards have ever come together as quickly for me before! I love working with our new sets!

So, I am going to send you on your way to Sarah's blog so you can hop along and see what the designers have in store for you today! But before you go a couple of things....a big thank you to all of our fans and customers for your support! Stay with us because we've got SO MANY GREAT THINGS in store for the next few months!

And a very big thank you to Julie Ranae. Today's post will be Julie's last as our Design Team Coordinator. Julie did for Lil' Inker what she does best.....She got our team up and running and helped me focus on the goals for our team. She gave me the tools I need to keep everything going and working like clock work and for that I am truly truly grateful! Thank you, Julie! You will be missed!

Thanks again everyone! Enjoy the remainder of our posts for today and then head on over to the LID Store to get your copies of Holly Jolly and Jingle Joy today!!

Jingle Joy is a set of 4 dies; the letters "j", "y" and "l" and an adorable 2 piece jingle bell die. The idea is that you can make the words joy and jolly and using the jingle bell as the "o" in each of the words! You will also receive a set of j,y,l stamps in three different patterns; peppermints, stripes and houndstooth, which can be used to stamp onto your die cut letters or directly onto cardstock!!

Here is a look at the set itself...

LID Holiday Hop: Introducing Jingle Joy!!!!

Ok, this is something neat that we think you are going to LOVE! The new set we are introducing today is called Jingle Joy! Jingle Joy was designed specifically to make clean and simple projects, cards and tags for the holidays!

Jingle Joy is a set of 4 dies; the letters "j", "y" and "l" and an adorable 2 piece jingle bell die. The idea is that you can make the words joy and jolly and using the jingle bell as the "o" in each of the words! You will also receive a set of j,y,l stamps in three different patterns; peppermints, stripes and houndstooth, which can be used to stamp onto your die cut letters or directly onto cardstock!!

Here is a look at what this set contains...

Have a look at two clean and simple project I made......

I can't think of anything better than a set designed specifically to help make clean and simple cards fast and mass produce them easily but still have an elegant and adorable look!

What's also very cool about this set is how we intentionally designed the "j" and "l" so they can be used as candy canes!!! If you notice, there is a neat sentiment in the Holly Jolly set that will work nicely with a candycane "j"! We also think the mini holly leaf from the Holly Jolly set will be the perfect finishing touch for a candycane OR jingle bell topper!

Let's talk a little more about our the jingle bell die in this set....I LOVE IT!

The bell die is actually 2 pieces. When you die cut the bell it cuts the bell shape but also a "belt", or at least that's what Ariana and I have been calling it. It's for the center of bell as an added 3-D detail and it is FAB. There is also this little notch where you can add bits of twine or DMC floss as an accent. Another cool thing about this little guy is that it also cuts three wee little stars which we thought would be really neat to use with the Christmas Tree die we featured as part of the Holly Jolly set! Neat, huh?

I think it's fabulous that there is a lot of overlap between our two new sets. We are hoping you love each one as much as we do!

Now, head on over to Sarah's blog to begin your hopping! Our team will have gorgeous designs to share with you and inspire you to use your Jingle Joy set. Don't forget to leave comments along the way as we will be giving away 2 $10 store credits to the Lil' Inker store!

And join us again tomorrow when the remaining DT'ers will share their Jingle Joy projects and again on Friday for our group post where anything goes!!
