LID January Release - Day 1

Hi there, blog friends!!  Today is the start of Lil' Inker Designs January release, and I have a couple of cards to share with you today using some of the new stamps & dies!

Up first is a shaker card using the new cover up plate, & a couple of the Valentine's themed stamps.  Check it out!
I love this cover up plate, and I've added foam adhesive in the middle of it so that the sequins stay on the top & at the bottom as well!  I've combined two of the new stamps sets to create the heat embossed sentiment.

Card Challenges:



For my next card, I created a Valentine using the chalkboard technique...and I LOVE how it turned out!
 I've used lots of layers & dimension on this one...the diecut banners are probably my favorite part!!

Card Challenges:



Be sure to check out what all the other designers have created as well!


I will be back tomorrow with another project using some of the new products!  Be sure to like the Lea Lawson Creates Facebook page to easily keep up with my crafty creation, & become a follower of my blog in the right sidebar.  :)  Have a happy Monday!

Until later,
~L.
