LID:: June 2018 Release:: Day 1


Today is the first of three days of the Lil' Inker Designs June 2018 Release Showcase... Once again, we have a fabulous hop for you featuring new stamps and dies. This release from Lil' Inker Designs is chock full of cute items, perfect for coffee lovers, summer and beyond! If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from the ever so talented Jen Carter's Blog! (Visit the Lil' Inker Design's Blog for the full link up.)


My first card features a few of the new items! I started with a kraft card base and then added a white die cut from the new Cover Up Die: Perfectly Plaid. This die is sooooo cool. I used it in the most simple manner today, but you can cut it from multiple colors and layer it by turning it upside down, flipping it over, etc. You can create many plaid looks, I'll have more examples to show you after the release.


To finish the card, I create a steaming paper mug of coffee with the Coffee Talk 2 Die Set, embellished with the perfect sentiment that was stamped and heat embossed with the new. large and perfectly awesome Coffee Talk 2 Stamp Set. A little inked edges and Copic colored details make the mug and spoon pop off the card.


I was really liking the color combination used in the above card, so I created a complimentary gift card holder using the new, fun To Go Coffee Cup Gift Holder Die Set using the same combination. This gift holder is so cool, it can be made in three swipes of a die cut machine: I used white cardstock for the lid (Copic colored detailing), Kraft for the base (inked edges) and coral for the mug sleeve. The sentiment was stamped in black, using the Coffee Talk 2 Stamp Set.


Here's a look at the new release products showcased in my two projects today (affiliate links used):
