Crafty Comeback Party - Day 3 - Lil' Inker Designs + Giveaway

Good morning, and happy Wednesday!  We've made it to the middle of the week!!  I hope you are having a great one so far!

We are on day 3 of my Crafty Comeback party, and it has been so much fun so far!!  I'm loving getting back into the groove of creating, and seeing my ideas come to life.  Today is all about Lil' Inker Designs, who is so near & dear to my heart.  I have been working with Laura forever now, and she creates some of the cutest stamps with matching dies!

About 3 years ago or so, I created this cute Halloween card for Lil' Inker Designs that had adorable cut-out ghosts that I popped over the top of tulle.  I STILL love that card to this day - in fact, I loved it so much that I kept it & use it in my Halloween decor.  I got to thinking about that card when I saw the latest Ghost Shaker Dies, and decided I wanted to take it a step further!  I kept the tulle, but also turned it into a shaker card!!!  I combined the new Ghost Shaker Dies with the previously released Stitched Ghost Dies, which go together perfectly!!  It is so cute...check it out!

As the card progressed, I realized I chose really feminine colors in addition to the tulle, which is pretty girly itself.  So, I decided that this cute little ghost NEEDED a rose gold bow!  The Mini Bow Die did the trick, and created a perfect bow for her!

I found these jewels while browsing through the aisles at Michael's the other day.  They won't be in the link list below, so I wanted to make sure you knew where to grab them!  They are Recollections brand, and located in the jewel/rhinestone section of the scrapbooking aisles.

 The gold foiled star vellum is an older item from Studio Calico.  I have just remnants of it left in my vellum scrap pile, and I don't think you can get it any longer.  But, there are so many amazing gold foiled vellum options out there now, that you can absolutely substitute!  I'm a huge advocate for using up your scraps, and this was a perfect fit for my card!

For some added interest & dimension to the card, I purposely put the top layer on with a little tilt.  I know that won't be everyone's cup of tea, and it would still look awesome if you kept it nice & straight!

Eeeek!!!  I can't even tell you how excited I am that it turned out!!  I seriously LOVE this card you might become a part of my Halloween decor too!! :)

  9. I had to pop over and see your original card with the tulle - so cute!! Your shaker card is just as adorable and I love the use of tulle with a shaker. I will have to grab some tulle the next time I go to the craft store so I can experiment. I don't create projects for Halloween, but I do like to create and decorate for fall/autumn. My favorite thing is making something new each year and bringing in coziness and warmth to my house with a new project. Haven't quite figured out what I'm going to do this year yet....
