Lil' Inker November Release Blog Hop {Day 3}

IMG_3076





Welcome back for the final day of the Lil' Inker November Release Blog Hop.  I am the Guest Designer this month at Lil' Inker and I can't wait to show you what I have for today. You should have arrived here today from the fabulous Isha's blog.  If you just happen to be here and would like to start at the beginning of the blop hop go to the Lil' Inker blog for the start.


I have my final two projects to share today. They are both made using the new  Cover Up Die - Swirls Pattern. I die cut the Cover Up dies using using Soft Stone cardstock and again using patterned paper from Echo Park Bundle of Joy.  My first card is in portrait orientation, then I paper pieced using the pattern paper pieces and stamped my sentiment on a pink On the Diagonal paper strip.

My second card is in landscape orientation. I used the patterned paper die cut piece adhered to a pink card base. Then I die cut some Stitched Clouds and a Sentiment Strip. Same die but two totally different looks.

Such a cool use of the positive and negative! All your projects were stunning, so glad that you got to join in!

Love the paper piecing with the swirls, it makes such a fun background and your use of the "leftover" die cut is so creative!

Terri (blindstamper) said...

Two cards in one! Cool pattern for those splashes!

Fantastic cards today, Tracey! I love the 'sky's the limit' design. Love how you used patterned paper for inlays--looks amazing. You have done a really awesome job as GD.

Kara said...

cute! love that paper!

Brenda in IN said...

Both made with the same things but such different looks. So, so pretty.

Bobby said...

It's great how one background die can make two very different cards. Great job!

Michelle said...

Wow!
Tracey, you showcased the die beautifully! Love the pattern paper you chose! Really beautiful!

Loly Borda-Towery said...

Lisa said...

OUTSTANDING cards Tracey!! love the floral paper peaking through on the first one but your design with the cute clouds is my fave!!

Anja (scrappie) said...

This is so clever and beautiful love both cards. Thanks for the inspiration.

Lindsey said...

Oh, wow! These cards are amazing. I love the laid in patterned paper and what a good idea to use the leftover outline on another card. It created a totally different feel to just see the pink in the negative image vs. flush inside the cut outs.

Lyndal said...

Two GORGEOUS cards Tracey - LOVE that you used the negative & positives!

Larissa Heskett said...

Such neat cards for today!! Loving the FUN Designs!! Thanks for sharing and have a Fabulous Week!! ;)

Laura Pryor said...

Barb Ghig said...

Both cards are really beautiful, Tracey! Such pretty colors, and I love how you used the positive and negative of your die cuts!

Barb Ghig said...

Both cards are really gorgeous, Tracey! I love how you paper pieced the first one, and used the negative on the 2nd card...so pretty!

canadian_liner said...

You and Lil'Inker are a match made in...the sky! Love your second card especially. THe swirls work great as cirrus clouds. Enjoying your 25 days of tags, too! Great idea!

Mary-Anne V said...

Wow that must have taken some time but the results are so worth it....so pretty.
