It's Flashback Friday!

Guess what?? Today is FLASHBACK FRIDAY!!!!!!!!! Fri-yay!!!

Hello Spring and hello Lil' Inker Designs friends! Welcome to our Flashback Friday Post, where we share a project using a previously released stamps or dies as the focus of the post. To celebrate, our flashback item or items featured will also be ON SALE for a limited time! 

Karen B. from The Bald Dragonfly here and I've got a spring tag duo showcasing an easy, custom designed background using the Spring Sentiments Stamp Set. I am also featuring the adorable, versatile and extremely affordable Bunnies & Bows Die Set and Anytime Tags Die Set and Anytime Tags Die Set 2. (I also threw in some other Lil' Inker Design products that will be mentioned, because so many Lil' Inker Design products work so well together.)

After stamping a random pattern of the small flowers from Spring Sentiments onto white cardstock and coloring in with markers, I die cut a tag using the Anytime Tags Die Set. I created a sentiment border with the Stitched Scallop Border Die and Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangles, and then stamped a sentiment from Spring Sentiments.

The second tag was made with the same custom stamped background from Spring Sentiments, but colored with slightly lighter shades and die cut with the Anytime Tags Die Set 2. I then added a stamped banner made with the Warm Welcome Dies. I die cut a cute bunny from Bunnies & Bows Die Set and popped him up with dimensional adhesive.

Here are the featured products used in my tags today which are also ON SALE 15% off through April 7th, EST! No code is necessary. Just add these items to your cart and save!

Here are a couple of other projects we're flashing back to that have been made with Spring Sentiments Stamps for your viewing pleasure and hopefully inspiration as well.

Thank you so much for joining me today for this fun post! Have an excellent weekend!

Join us Monday, April 3rd for our brand new April Release Blog Hop!
