Lil' Inker October Release Previews - Joy!

It's the last day of the Lil' Inker October new release previews.  I really enjoyed being guest designer this month and appreciate your kind comments over the past few days.  These dies were lots of fun to work with and I am looking forward to seeing what you will do with them just as soon as you get them in your own hot little hands!  If you are following the blog hop you should have reached here through Amy's blog.   If you want to start from the beginning you can find all the details here on Laura's blog.  

I saved the best for last!  I made a classic card in traditional colors - green, red and kraft and fit in as much Lil' Inker goodness as I thought this one could hold.  Across the top is an embossed panel using the Cover Up:Christmas die.  The label is from Flags and Tags and topped with the Joy Word die.  The bitty bow and greenery (bitty trees) are from Christmas Bits.  I topped the little trees with lots of red pearl "berries" 
Before you go I hope you will leave me a comment - there's some hidden blog candy on the hop and you have to comment to enter to win!!    Next stop is Jen Carter!  

Have a great day and good luck!

I love the way you used the tiny trees Jeanne! They look so good clustered together. Beautiful bright Christmas card. How fun that you got to be a GD for one of our favorites : Lil Inkers! Great job!

Great card! I love the embossed panel at the top and the use of the little tree as the pine sprigs! So fun! Love it!

Great use of patterns and the tree die for leaves on this card.

This is terrific! I LOVE how you used the tree die cut to make pine bough branches with those yummy real pearl holly berries. And I think it is so cute how you have the bow die cut dotting the 'j' of 'joy' too.

So what don't I love about this one? Apparently I love it all because I would love to case it exactly as it is! I love cutting plate used to make the impression...subtle but really adds a lo to the look. Great job on this release, bet you helped sell a ton of things for Lil Inker.
