Oh my have we got some Lil’ Inker Designs fun for you today! We are hopping along with a new teamie, a couple of our regular DT joining the core team, fabulous inspiration, amazing prizes and the best part is that you get to play along too!

First off let me say that I’m delighted that we have the amazing Taheerah Atchia joining the LID family! Taheerah can pull off any style and is always right on trend and I just can’t wait to see what she does with LID goodies. Please give her a big welcome! In addition Alyssa and Isha will be continuing to wow us with their LID magic but now as part of the core Design Team :)

So onto the hop, hop, hop! Hopefully as part of the hop you have arrived here from Amy’s blog. If not pop by and see Laura to start at the beginning so you don’t miss anything as believe me there is lots going on today! Here’s the photo we used to inspire our hop projects:


I was inspired by those wonderful bright summer colours, clouds and that pop of yellow and translated it into an inky tag :) I pulled out my clouds and sunshine dies to cut masks and used the negative space to ink up my little scene. I started with the large cloud and then the smaller one (masking the larger cloud) before finishing on the sun (masking both clouds); each time working Distress Inks into the area.


Finally a I stamped a sentiment from the Sun Sentiments set and added a few enamel dots. I tied the tag to a pocket which could be used to hold a gift card or similar but I put in the necklace I’d bought my niece and sent off this sunny gift for her birthday :)

Now for the fun part for you! Make a card or paper crafted project inspired by this graphic. Use LID products as the focus of your project but do not need to be used exclusively in order to win. Pop the inspiration photo in your post and link it up in the little linky tool here.

Now onto the prizes! Two lucky honorable mentions will receive $10 gift certificates to Lil’ Inker Designs. Our Grand Prize Winner will receive a $50 Gift Certificate to Lil’ Inker Designs – our BIGGEST PRIZE EVER!! The Grand Prize winner will also receive a cutie badge for  their blog. Also, for every 10 challenge entries we will be giving away a stamp set to randomly chosen participants! So there really is a LOT you can win! You have until Sunday, June 2nd at 11:30 p.m., EST to enter.
