I am really happy to be able to participate in this blog hop as I have been a long time admirer of Lil' Inker Designs and had the pleasure of receiving the gorgeous and uplifting Be the Reason Someone Smiles Today stamp set when I went to Stamping Away earlier in April (I had to pinch myself that I was there with such incredible woman that I admire for not only being amazing crafters, but amazing women. I may be dating myself, but I felt a bit like Wayne and Garth bowing and saying "We're not worthy!" when they met musicians they idolized. lol).

So as a big stamp lover it is a pleasure to work with well designed stamps like the one I played with today which is part of Lil' Inker Designs' mini-release available today (May 1 at 12:01 am EST):
I made two simple cards for you today. I played with water, inks and embossing powder on watercolor paper for the cards.
For the black embossed card I went with cooler colors and emphasized the "today" by cutting it out from a reject panel I had embossed (don't throw away those less than stellar tries!) and mounted it all on a piece of patterned paper attached to a card base.
On the second card I colored in warmer tones with white embossing powder and trimmed closer to the image before adhering it to a white panel and then to a vibrant patterned paper covered card base.
As this stamp is so stunning you really don't need to do much!
