Spot On

Hello there, today I have the absolute pleasure to be guest designing over at the Make The Day Special Blog. If you haven't already heard, Make The Day Special is now the UK stockist for Lil' Inker Designs and so because of this, I was kindly asked if I would like to guest using some of the new products available in the shop :)
I have two cards to share with you today, the first uses the new Spot On stamp set along with the Stitched Stars dies.

Here is the video showing how I made it:
As you can see, I kept the stamping quite minimal using two stamps from the Spot On set. I then ran the panel through my Cuttlebug using the Stitched Stars dies but embossed these without cutting. I think they give an added texture and interest to the card. I then finished off with a few Sprinkles and mounted it to a Citrus Slice card base with foam tape.
My next card uses the Spot On stamp set as well but this time I used two of the spots to create a focal point. I took the solid circle image and stamped this in the top centre of a white cardstock panel with MFT Blu Raspberry Ink and then followed up with one of the patterned circles either side. I stamped the sentiment from the Modern Mehndi set below in black ink.

I then took a small heart die and cut this from the centre of the middle circle. The panel has been popped up with foam tape on to a Robins Egg card base adding a little white cardstock behind the heart for contrast. I then finished off the card by using the clear Wink Of Stella brush pen on the spots and added a small rhinestone in the centre of the heart.
I would like to say a big thank you to Tara and Make The Day Special for having me today. The new release from Lil' Inker Designs will be in the shop today :) Thanks so much for visiting me, I will be back in a bit with my first teaser card for the Clearly besotted Stamps June release :)
