As You Like It: I'll be brief..


Happy Saturday!

So.. I am back in the gym today after a 2-week pause because I broke my foot. I am more mobile now and off to craft class at The Inkpad NYC tonight..

To cheer myself up, I thought I'd play with some challenges and I came across the current As You Like It challenge.

The theme this time is to show a project using your fave stamp company and you have to explain why.

NOT easy at all. I love SO many companies LOL.

I love Lil Inker Designs - they are a small company and they make really great stamps, dies and papers.

I always fall in love with their new releases and Laura that owns Lil Inker is an absolute sweetheart - she tries really hard to help you if need something (aka me on a hunt for long retired dies..).

I chose to use the 'I'll be brief' set for this card as it always makes me smile and to be fair - who wouldn't smile at an Alligator in underpants!

I stamped one of the 'briefs' from the set to create a background and coloured them using Copic markers, I made a mistake with my choice of black ink, but it didn't smudge too much..

I added a little border strip to house the sentiment also from the sent and I stamped, coloured and die-cut the cute Alligator.

I love using this set, everyone I've ever sent one of these to always contacts me and asks me to make them a little batch.

That is one of the reasons I love Lil Inkers, the cards I make using their products are so well received and that always feels so nice.


p.s if you ever get a chance to get a Lil Inker grab box BUY ONE - they are such good VFM and check out their annual Black Friday blowout sale, it's ridiculous!
