Coffee Loving Cardmakers & CAS-ual Fridays Collaboration Blog Hop!

Hello friends!    Today I'm participating in a fun collaboration blog hop with CAS-ual Fridays and Coffee Loving Cardmakers!   There's lots of inspiration to be found if you hop along with us....and of course, a chance to win some great prizes!
My card today uses some fantabulous CAS-ual Fridays coffee stamp sets - they are all linked below!   I started by stamping the 'I just want to drink coffee' sentiment from Coffee Talk repeatedly down the right hand side of my card panel.   This is super easy if you have a MISTI stamping tool - just place the stamp on the MISTI door and move your cardstock up or down to get the spacing however you'd like!   
Next I added a hand cut banner and added the 'coffee' die cut word and the tiny coffee mug from the Coffee Cup Fri-Die set.   I finished the stamping with another sentiment from Coffee Talk.  To finish the card off, I added a coating of Glossy Accents to the die cuts.

I hope you've enjoyed my card today!   Be sure to hop along using the InLinkz tool below.    Three lucky winners will win $25 gift certificates just by leaving comments along the hop!   Remember, you can use my special code, KIMBERLYSENTME, at the CAS-ual Fridays store to save 15% on any of the goodies you've seen me use here.....and EVERYTHING else in the store as well!    Happy hopping!

WCMD Cover Up Die Release & Sale at Lil' Inker Designs!


Hi friends, Happy World Card Making Day!   Lil' Inker Designs has a special sale and the release of a brand new cover up die to celebrate this special day.    Check out my card to see the new Diagonal Plaid Cover Up Die in action, and be sure to read to the end of the post for more details on the sale!


I used the new Diagonal Plaid Cover Up Die to create the fun background by die cutting once from cream cardstock and once from brown cardstock.   I layered these (flip one upside down to create the plaid!) onto a kraft card base.   I die cut a Dotted Tag and stamped it with several elements from the new Fall Foliage stamp set, adding some detail with a cream colored pencil.   Next, I added lots of leaves - the largest is an ink blended leaf die cut from the Leaf Love die set and stamped with a sentiment from Leafy Greetings and the smaller leaves are from Fall Foliage.  I'm loving the festive Autumn vibe of this card!
So....about that WCMD sale!    This brand new Cover Up Die is 10% off, no code needed!   As if that wasn't enough, ALL the Cover Up Dies are also 10% off!   Just add 'em to your cart and you'll see the discount reflected at checkout!   Have a great weekend - I hope you have a chance to get crafty!

Halloween is in the Air!

Happy Hump Day, friends!    I thought I'd share another card made with the newest release from Lil' Inker Designs.   I adore these stitched bats and couldn't wait to use them!

To create my card, I masked off the top and bottom of a piece of white cardstock and blended a few shades of Distress Oxide inks to create a night sky.   Before I removed the mask, I flicked on some stars with a paintbrush  dipped in some gesso mixed with water.

Once I removed the mask, I stamped the sentiment from Boo Balloons just below the inked portion and added a few of the Stitched Bats - the largest with dimensional adhesive.   To really make them pop I added some tiny eyes from Doodlebug!

I hope you've enjoyed my card today!   You can find all of the supplies over at the Lil' Inker Designs shop.   I've listed the products below!   Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Lil' Inker Designs September Release - Day 3


Welcome back!   Today is the last day of Lil' Inker Designs three day blog hop celebrating the new September release - but be sure to check in next week....I'm sure I'll have a few more cards to share with you ;)  I've got another adorable Halloween card to share with you all today!

I love that the new stamp set, Boo Balloons, has existing dies already!   Very cool, especially if you already own those dies, right?!?   I stamped and die cut my balloons using a variety of patterned paper and colored cardstock.   I think this is just the cutest!  I added the jack-o-lantern and skeleton balloons to the card with foam tape for extra dimension.


That's all for now, but be sure to hop along and see what the rest of the design team has created!

Lil' Inker Designs September Release - Day 2


Hello!    Thanks for stopping by for day two of Lil' Inker Designs' September release!   All of the stamps are now available over at Lil' Inker, so be sure to check that out!   I've got a card to share with you today using the very pretty new Fall Foliage stamps & dies.


To create this card, I stamped the sunflower image  from Fall Foliage onto kraft paper with brown ink, then colored them in with Copic markers, adding a light grey outline.   This simple, subtle step kind of makes the flowers 'pop' off the page!  I added a sentiment strip (also colored with Copics) with foam tape across the card.    

To finish things off, I stamped and die cut another sunflower, added some glitter & Glossy Accents and adhered it at the end of the sentiment strip.   Simple & pretty!

Lil' Inker Designs September Release - Day 1



Hello, friends!   Today begins the product inspiration for Lil' Inker Designs' September release!   There's a lot to love here - fall items are always my favorite!    We've got a nice mix of both Halloween and fall items to share with you over the next few days....let's get started!


I've got a really fun card today using several new goodies from the new release - Monsters Ink stamps & dies, Boo Balloons & the Mini Chevron Border die!

I started by die cutting several pieces of black, lime, orange & purple cardstock with the new Mini Chevron Border die.   I adhered them together tightly on a thin piece of printer paper, then die cut them once again with a Stitched Mats -Rectangle die.   I stamped the sentiment on the purple strip - it is just the perfect size!

Next I stamped and die cut the adorable monster from Monsters Ink and colored him to match my chevron background.   I adhered him to the chevron piece with an Action Wobble Spring - so fun!


For the background, I stamped the Boo, Eek & eyeball images from Boo Balloons with Versamark ink and heat embossed with glow-in-the-dark embossing powder.  

This is one creepy cute card!!!
