You Made It Monday Vol. 38

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.

First up, I couldn't help but share a little Christmas in July with this collection of cards from @ajourneyofexpression.

These cards make such a gorgeous collection!  I love the combination of patterns and all three different layouts.  They really make our Joy Word Die and Jolly Word Die shine.  These dies were the perfect choice to finish off these cards.  Do you have them in your collection?  You should!

Another great take on Christmas in July comes from Joan, @dearpaperlicious.

Just look at that watercolor background!  I love that Joan used nontraditional Christmas colors for this card.  It's just fabulous and our Oh Deer Christmas Stamp is the perfect centerpiece.  Those little speckles of black really direct your attention to the center and the card is AMAZING!

Schools are busily wrapping up for the summer and I just love the way Lori, @ltecler, chose to express her thanks!

Such a simple way to show off our Apple Shaker Die and Teacher Word Die.  It's so focused on those elements and they make a fantastic focal point!  I love how Lori used the twine!  It's such a unique look and does the job of focusing your eye.  The touches of kraft are just perfection!  Great card, Lori!
Speaking of simple and focused, check out this card from @tatepiacraft.

This sentiment from Hello Beautiful Stamps is awesome and I love that it is the focus of this whole card.  What a fun way to create a background and then change up the color just slightly to make one element jump out.  Such a fun creation!

The final card today is simple amazing and come to you from Brenda, @bcannova.

I love the amazing selective coloring on this card!  The You Will Never Regret Being Kind Stamp is such a fun stamp and I'm always amazed at how many different ways our customers use it.  This is simple gorgeous and if you check out Brenda's Instagram feed, you'll find a couple more cards using this awesome stamp.

We hope you enjoyed this small glimpse of the amazing creations you guys are sharing using Lil’ Inker Designs products.  I can’t wait to see what else I discover in the weeks to come.  As I mentioned above.  You can expect to see You Made It Mondays on the first Monday of each month, unless it's a new release day, then we'll bump it to the next Monday.
