Lil' Inker Designs Blog Hop FINAL DAY!

Today is the LAST day of 
the Lil' Inker Designs (with ag designs)
Design Team New Release Blog Hop!

We are featuring our NEW Acorn die and Sentiment stamp set!

Its really just ADORABLE see for yourself!

Welcome to the last day of our Hop. If you have arrived from Sarah's Blog then you are on the right path! If not head back to the beginning to check out all of the Design Team's amazing work! So today I am re-purposing my card from yesterday. Now on the last release day of the Lil' Inker Designs Design Team Blog Hop, I can show you how I combined the mini pinwheel die with the brand new Acorn Die Set and Acorn Sentiment Stamps. First up is the Acorn Die Set. I used the cute little leaf die with my magazine flower paper to get a bunch of great fall colors for leaves. I put them on the card in a falling pattern with the Falling for you sentiment from the Acorn Sentiments Set. I hoped to accent the movement of the mini pinwheel. Don't you just love all of these together!  I used a few markers to make the sentiment pop out a bit more. I hand drew some spirals and a make shift stem, to connect the mini pinwheel and falling leaf dies, visually. Here's a bunch more photos of my creation using the leaf die from Acorn Die Set and Acorn Sentiment Stamps with our mini pinwheel die

I wish my time with Laura for craftiness was much much longer then I could have done more with this guy too!!!!!

I look forward to crafting again!
At the moment my full time job as a designer in Prepress 
is just soooooo busy!!!!
I'm glad to have the work but it doesn't leave me much time 
also after my two boys run me around at night!!!
But planning a day again, is in the near future, 
with my partner in crime Laura. It is a MUST DO!

Next up on the Acorn trail is Chan.
