LID December Release - Hello Awesome

Hey there, blog friends!  Welcome to the final night of the Lil' Inker Designs December release!!  If you haven't already checked them out, there are 4 new stamp sets & 6 new dies are now available for purchase in the Lil' Inker Designs be sure to go over & add some items to your Christmas wishlist!

I've got two more projects to share with you, and I'm using the following items tonight: Hello, Awesome stamp set, Awesome word die & Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangles, among other previously released items.

I used a rainbow theme for my first card, and the super fun "possum" sentiment!  Check it out!
I started with cutting an A2 card from white cardstock.  I then diecut the stitched rectangle from rainbow colored cardstock strips, then adhered them all to a block of white cardstock.  I then diecut the word "Awesome" from bottom of it.  Because it is fairly thick, the word leaves a perfect impression but does not cut all the way through.  I then stamped & heat embossed the rest of the sentiment to the front.  After adhere the entire rainbow block to the card front, I accented it with jewels to finish.

I created a baby themed card for my next project.  I combined the awesome die with some previously released stamps & dies, and I love how it turned out!
 I started by cutting an A2 card from white cardstock.  I cut a chevron paper block slightly smaller, then diecut "seriously awesome" from the bottom of it. I added a strip of gold glittered paper to the bottom of the card, then added the chevron paper block to the top using foam adhesive.  I then diecut the speech bubble border to a block of art paper, & painted the watercolor background.  I diecut the speech bubbles from vellum, & adhered them to the top of the watercolor blocks.  I then stamped the rest of the sentiments as shown to finish.
