I’m back today with the next sneak peek from Lil’ Inker Designs :)  Hopefully as part of the new release hop you’ve arrived here from Alyssa’s blog. If not pop by and see Laura to start at the beginning so you don’t miss anything :)

I’m not sure if you noticed; on my children’s party invitation that I shared on Monday, the invitation details were stamped onto the most perfect little stitched mat. Here’s a reminder:

I can’t tell you how stoked I was when I found out LID were releasing these mats! The dies nest into one another – 6 in total. The first five cut a mat and stitched edge and then the largest die just cuts the stitched edge. The possibilities with these dies are endless! 

Today I’m sharing a project using these Stitched Mats along with the Balloon dies and You’re Invited stamp set that I showed you on Monday. Monday’s post was aimed at a children’s party invitation but I wanted to highlight how versatile these sets are and that they can be used for adult occasions too. 

I created a wrap for my invitation out of some Summer Starfruit card and the most gorgeous ribbon from Angela Ligouri. Inside is nestled the invitation which is backed onto white card with a couple of mats of patterned paper followed by a scallop of white card across the top. Over this I added the invitation stamped in grey onto Soft Stone card die cut with a stitched mat and then popped up two patterned paper balloons with twine strings.

The colours in the second photo seem a bit washed out – the real colours are more like the top photo vibrant and fun yet classy (hopefully).

Well that’s me for today. I’m back with more LID on Friday :) Now it’s time to hop on over to Laura’s blog :)
