Special Guest

We have a special Guest Designer today - Michelle from The Card Grotto is a Lil Inkers fan so I asked her to do a guest spot to coincide with the release of new goodies which are in store today.  Michelle is using products from earlier releases - some of which are currently out of stock - but restocks were posted from the States on Friday so will be with us, along with lots more new goodies, in a couple of weeks. 

Spot On

I have two cards to share with you today, the first uses the new Spot On stamp set along with the Stitched Stars dies.

Here is the video showing how I made it:

As you can see, I kept the stamping quite minimal using two stamps from the Spot On set. I then ran the panel through my Cuttlebug using the Stitched Stars dies but embossed these without cutting. I think they give an added texture and interest to the card. I then finished off with a few Sprinkles and mounted it to a Citrus Slice card base with foam tape.
My next card uses the Spot On stamp set as well but this time I used two of the spots to create a focal point. I took the solid circle image and stamped this in the top centre of a white cardstock panel with MFT Blu Raspberry Ink and then followed up with one of the patterned circles either side. I stamped the sentiment from the Modern Mehndi set below in black ink.  

I then took a small heart die and cut this from the centre of the middle circle. The panel has been popped up with foam tape on to a Robins Egg card base adding a little white cardstock behind the heart for contrast. I then finished off the card by using the clear Wink Of Stella brush pen on the spots and added a small rhinestone in the centre of the heart.
I would like to say a big thank you to Tara and Make The Day Special for having me today. The new release from Lil' Inker Designs will be in the shop today :)

 Thanks Michelle - we've loved having you!
