Lil' Inker Designs June Release - Day 3


Hello again!   It's the final inspiration day for the June Lil' Inker Designs release.   Is your wish list a mile long?!   SUCH good stuff this release!   Be sure to read to the end to find out how you can win the entire release!

My first card today features one of my favorites from this release - Super Coffee!   This set comes with both stamps and the die so you are ready to start creating right away!   I die cut several super coffee's and layered them to create a thicker die cut, then I attached it to the card with an Action Wobble Spring!   The sentiment is the perfect size to stamp on the Wrappers Delight: Sunburst Die!

Next up, a super easy way to give a gift card - the To-Go Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder die!  This die creates a really cute gift card holder in a flash!  Just choose your papers and run them through your machine - the slots are cut for you too!  


I stamped the sentiment from Coffee Talk 2 on red paper and heat embossed with white, then cut around it, leaving some of the red edge.  The tiny hearts are from the Love is Love die set.   I added a bit of Glossy Accents - they look like tiny enamel accents!

Lil' Inker Designs June Release - Day 2


Welcome back for day two of the Lil' Inker Designs June release!   I've got a few cards to share with you today.   Be sure to read on to find out how you can win the entire LID June release!


First up, a card using several of the new coffee-themed stamps and dies released this month!   This card is nearly all die cuts - the only stamping is on the coffee mug!    That utterly amazing background was created with the new Perfectly Plaid Cover Up Die.  I can't tell you how cool this is! When you cut two backgrounds and flip one around, you get this amazing layered plaid.   I cut mine from white and grey and layered them over a purple card base.  The coffee mug and spoon are from the new Coffee Talk 2 die set, and the fun sentiment is from Coffee Talk 2.   There are so many AMAZING sentiments in this stamp set!!  The large flowers are from the new Perky Posies XL stamp set, which is a larger version of Perky Posies.   I've used a few flowers from each set to accentuate the coffee mug!

Next up is a card using lots of fun baby themed products!   I've created a shaker using the new Baby Onesie Shaker Die.   "Little Peanut", embossed on the acetate of the shaker, is from Little Ones.  The shaker is filled with a mixture of sequins found in my stash!


I added some twine through one of the tag dies included in the new Baby Word Tags die set, and heat embossed the sentiment, also from Little Ones, onto a patterned paper sentiment strip.



Soooo - would you like to win the ENTIRE June release?  I bet!   Just leave a comment here before hopping over to Lisa's blog - and be sure to leave comments on each stop of the hop for even more chances to win!   Some lucky crafter is going to be very happy!  Below you will find the entire hop list, as well as links to the products I've used for today's projects.   Be sure to stop by again tomorrow for more projects with this new release!   See you soon!

Lil' Inker Designs June Release - Day 1


Hi there, and happy Monday, friends!   Not only is today the last day of school for my kiddos (aside from going back for a few Regents exams) - it's also the first day of the Lil' Inker Designs June release!   There's definitely something for everyone this release!   Are you a cat lover?   Know a cat lover?   Then the stamp set I've used today is purr-fect for you!

For my card I've used the super duper adorable Cat Hugs stamps and dies.   This stamp is a coloring lover's dream!   This crowd of cats looks great whether you color them entirely (like I did with Copics for this card), or if you just highlight a few cats, or even just their accessories, as you will see in some of the other design team members' projects.


The best part of this stamp set is the coordinating dies - there are traditional dies to cut out each of the tiny accessories, but then there are two other dies - one will cut along the top edge of the cats, and the other will cut tiny slots for their paws so that you can insert those cutie pie accessories - very cool!!  

I wanted to have my crowd of cats as a bit of a surprise on the inside of the card, so after scoring my card base, I used the Fringed Scallop Heart die to die cut a window on the front.   Then I adhered my patterned paper and cat die cut on the inside and stamped the sentiment.   


Would you like to win the ENTIRE June release?   I know you would!   Just leave a comment here before hopping over to Lisa's blog - and be sure to leave comments on each stop of the hop for even more chances to win!   Some lucky crafter is going to be very happy!  Below you will find the entire hop list, as well as links to the products I've used for today's projects.   Be sure to stop by again tomorrow for more projects with this new release!   Have a great day!

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Hello and happy weekend!  I've got a card today for the Spring & Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!   I've used all CAS-ual Fridays stamps and dies for this one...

I stamped the coffee beans from Peace, Love & Coffee onto the Scallop Tag Fri-die, and added the sentiment from Coffee Talk .   I colored the mug from Serendipi-tea with Copic markers and adhered it to the tag with foam dots.  To finish the card off, I layered some coordinating cardstock and added baker's twine to the hole in the tag.  My favorite part is the Glossy Accents added to the coffee in the mug!


Have you had a chance to create a coffee/tea card for the blog hop?!   I always love this hop - it's  so fun and I love to see what everyone creates - there is SOOOO MUCH coffee goodness out there in crafty-land!  

Thanks for stopping by my blog!   Any of the goodies I've used today are available at the CFS shop - and you can use the discount code KIMBERLYSENTME to save 15% on everything in the store!!  Be sure to check out all of the inspiring cards and projects on the hop - and join in as well!  Have a great weekend!

CAS-ual Fridays May Release - Day 4

Hi friends!    It's day four of the CAS-ual Fridays May release!    Have you gone shopping yet?   What are your favorites?   Today we've got a fun new stamp set called Sands of Time 2, and its coordinating die, Hourglass!

I stamped the center hourglass and then die cut an hourglass from masking paper.   I used this to temporarily cover the stamped hourglass and then stamped two more on either side before removing the mask.   I added the heart sand stamp and die cut the top and base from gold glitter paper.  Next I added a layer of Glossy Accents to just the center hourglass!

Once dry, I added some die cuts using the flowers from Best Day Ever and the leaves from Garden Fri-Dies - the centers were accented with little gold pearls.  This would make a great engagement, wedding or new baby card - I love the sentiment because it's so true!!

Well, that's all for this release!   Such a great one....I hope you've found something you love!   Remember the coupon code KIMBERLYSENTME works on anything in the entire store to save 15%.   Thanks for sticking with me all week - see you again soon!
