Welcome to the Lil' Inker Designs Mini Release Blog Hop!
I'm thrilled to be hopping along with Lil' Inker Designs today and to showcase this awesome new Be The Reason That Someone Smiles Today greeting stamp! The message of this sentiment is one of my favorites and the style of this greeting makes it fantastic to make it the focal point of a card (or two!).
To create my cards, I first die cut two panels from Bristol Smooth Cardstock using the Lil Inker Design Dual Dotted Rectangles. I love the embossed dotted borders around each panel (I used the largest A2 sized die from the set).
I stamped the Be The Reason That Someone Smiles Today greeting stamp in the center of both panels using Versamark Ink and heat embossed the greeting with white embossing powder. I applied Distress Inks over the greetings for the embossed resist look shown here, using a trio of inks per design:
Once inked, I spritzed each panel with water from a Distress Sprayer and blotted the backgrounds dry with a paper towel.
I adhered each panel to a side fold card base and then embellished each with Nuvo Crystal Drops.
