Lil Inker Designs

Day 6 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year.

The sponsor for Day 6 was Lil Inker Designs – and the DT had come up with tons of amazing tags! As I had bought a cute (unused) Lil Inker Designs die at the end of last year, I knew I wanted to use that for my tag. I took one of Lynda Pryor’s tags as inspiration and got to work!

I used the ‘Merry & Bright’ die to make a shaker tag – my second so dar this year! I’m loving it! I like how Lynda used patterned paper as the backdrop for her shaker – perfect way of using up some of my massive paper mountain (which never seems to go down!). To finish of the tag, I stuck it to a frame cut from a Spellbinders die and then added some ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!


Striped birthday

Hi everyone!

There’s another eye-catching sketch for this week’s Case This Sketch challenge. For my CAS take, I used some double-sided tape and gilding flakes to create the silver strip and then added a few strips of coloured cardstock either side. The Happy Birthday strip was cut using a @lilinkerdesigns die. I added a few silver nailheads to finish off the card. Super quick and simple!

I’m also going to enter this into the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge – add metal.
