Lil' Inker Designs July Release Blog Hop {Day 2}

Welcome to {Day 2} of the Lil' Inker Designs July Release! If you arrived from Teresa Kline's blog, you're on the right track. If you'd like to start at the beginning, please go to Laura Pryor's blog for all the details. This month, Lil' Inker Designs is releasing two incredible sets of stamps and coordinating dies. The first one is Sunshine Dies and Sun Sentiments. There are two sizes of Sunshine Dies and they are sold together with the coordinating stamps or individually without the stamps. You choose! Here's the card I made using both Sunshine Dies as well as loads of other Lil' Inker Designs products.

I did a ton of die cutting on this card. I die cut both suns in various colours so I could layer them. The stems are the post from the Sentiment Flag Additions Dies and the leaves are the sole cushion/shoe label from the Flip Flops release which will be showcased by the design team starting tomorrow!! The frame is the inside section of the Texture Plate Collection - Frame 1, Side B.

Here's what the dies and stamps look like in their entirety. If you'd like to purchase either of these now, just click on the graphics and you will be taken to the Lil' Inker Store!

You definitely don't want to miss the projects from yesterday. Here's a recap in case you want to see what the other half of the team cooked up using the Sunshine Dies and Sun Sentiments Set:


Plus, if you comment on every post each day this week, you will have more chances to win one of two $10 gift certificates to the Lil' Inker Store to spend it on whatever your sunny heart desires. ;) Thanks so much for stopping by today! I will see you on Thursday to show you what I made for the Flip Flop release!!
