Lil’ Inker Designs Mini Release Blog Hop

FullSizeRender (9)

Earlier in April, I got a chance to hang out at the Whatever Craft House with my retreat girls, and we were spoiled by Laura Pryor with a sneak peak of  super cute positive message goodies from Lil Inker Designs! This sentiment is so poignant to me… and today, it’s MINI RELEASE day, and we are all sharing cards and prizes with you!


Today my retreat friends are hopping and sharing our new stamps with a Lil Inkers Mini Release Blog Hop! You may have arrived here from my talent-oozing-friend, Heather… If you randomly landed here today, you can find the first post of this hop with Laura at the Lil’ Inker Store Blog.

never regret

I loved these stamps for several reasons – 1) They are beautiful thoughts…  2) The layouts are great for full card front sentiments that stand alone. And, 3) The mimic the hand lettered look that is so popular right now!

To create my card, I started with my Mini Misti and Petal Point Pigment Inks from Clearsnap! The tiny tip of each petal ink pad lets you easily ink precisely where you want on the stamp.

I chose a monochromatic look with the reds to orange color run in my Petal Point pad, and the mini, removable ink pads were perfect for inking up small sections of the sentiment.

Love how vibrant these colors are!

After inking, I pressed once to the paper using the Mini MISTI. I embossed with detailed clear embossing powder and voila! So punchy!

I finished my card off with Circle Confetti – a fun gift from Pretty Pink Posh! So fun!

To celebrate this fun mini release, Lil Inkers is giving away prizes!  Two winners for one sentiment stamp set and one winner to receive the cover plate and angel pets goodies! 

Be sure to visit and comment for each of the participants because the winners will be drawn from any of the participating blogs! All of the details can be found here.
