LID December Release - All About Ampersand

Hi there, blog friends!  Welcome to day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs December release!!  Weren't all of the projects from our team yesterday just amazing?!   4 new stamp sets & 6 new dies are now available for purchase in the Lil' Inker Designs shop....so be sure to go over & add some items to your Christmas wishlist!

We've got two more days of amazing projects and today I am featuring the following items: All About Ampersand stamp set, All About Ampersand dies & Anytime Tags Die Set 2.

My first card is very clean & simple.  I've used white on white, with a touch of gold & black.  I think it looks very elegant, but still very trendy.  Check it out!
 I started with an A2 card base cut from white cardstock, then diecut the anytime tag from the same.  After adding the gold thread to the middle of the card base, I layered the white tag on top of it with foam adhesive.  I diecut the ampersand from shiny gold papern & added it to the middle of the tag with foam tabs as well.  To finish I stamped the rest of the sentiment to white cardstock, cut it out & adhered it to each side of the gold ampersand.




For my next card I created Christmas shaker card using the ampersand cover plate.  Are you sick of me making shaker cards yet?  I certianly hope not, because I love them!!!  :)  Check it out!
 I started with an A2 card base cut from white cardstock, then covered the front with red glittered paper.  I diecut the ampersand cover plate from white cardstock, then backed it with a transparency.  I then added all the sequins to the middle of the card base.  After lining the edges of the ampersand block with foam tape, I adhered it to the card front.  I made sure all of the edges were sealed, then shook the sequins loose.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment in cottage ivy ink to white cardstock, cut them out & adhered them to the lower left corner to finish.
