Lil' Inker Designs January Release Blog Hop {Day 1}

Welcome to Day 1 of Lil' Inker Designs' January Release! If you've come from Laura Pryor's blog, you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, you will want to start at Laura's blog every day this week so you don't miss a thing. Be sure to leave comments on every designer's blog each day this week for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the Lil' Inker Store or the 2 Cute Ink sets being released this week!

Today, half the design team is featuring the first release of the week, Flags & Tags. This set comes complete with three dies and 21 stamps. It is beautiful and incredibly versatile! There are five background and outline stamps plus little flourish images and a multitude of sentiments for every occasion imaginable. This set is a must-have for your paper crafting projects.

I made a birthday card in my favourite 6½" x 3¼" size using two of the dies from Flags & Tags plus the clouds dies from Rainbows & Clouds. On the sentiment label, I double-stamped the diamond mesh background in yellow and the solid outline in pink. I love having layering options with these stamps! After die cutting the oversized flag die, I added some staple accents and adhered all the layers to the card. As you can see, the possibilities with the Flags & Tags dies and stamp set are endless. Just click on the image to purchase!

Now head on over to my talented friend Jen Carter's blog where she has several fun projects to share with you!
