Lil' Inker Designs October Release Day 1 - OMG!

Have you ever had a really REALLY good secret that you were just dying to share but you had to wait for what felt like an eternity until you could share it?  Yup, that's how I've felt since Laura asked me to join her and the AMAZING team at Lil' Inker Designs.  To say I was flabbergasted, is an understatement.  It felt like I was in a dream world when I said, "OF COURSE!"  Then she sent me this:


I knew it was real and I was actually a part of the Lil' Inker Designs team.  I'm so excited to get to work with this wonderful group of designers and these amazing products.  This release (available NOW in the Lil' Inker Store) is going to blow you away and I hope you will hop along with us for the next few days.  You won't regret it for a second.  Hopefully, you have arrived here from Amy's blog.  If not, you might want to go to the Lil' Inker blog to make sure you start at the tip top of the hop.

I'll start by making you a little hungry first.  Who doesn't love donuts, right?  The more the merrier.  You can work them off later.  Well, the Eat More Donuts Stamp Set and Donuts Die Set are super low in calories so you can have as many as you like and after you see what I've created with them, you're going to want donuts galore.  ;)

Cute right?  Here are my cards:


I stamped the amazing donuts (Eat More Donuts) on kraft paper in some fun and delicious looking colors and then cut out a Stitched Mats:  Rounded Rectangle that would fit my sentiment perfectly.  I wrapped some twine around the rectangle and added a few enamel dots to finish the card off.  Super cute!  Donuts just scream for coffee, don't they?  That's where my next card idea came from.


I used the Donuts Die Set to create this adorable donut with some patterned paper and glossy accents.  Then I grabbed my handy dandy Coffee Cozy Stamp Set and Coffee Cozy Die Set to create my cute coffee cup.  I whipped out my Stitched Mats:  Rounded Rectangle Dies for this card also and they gave me the perfect focal area for my coffee and donut.  Can't beat that.

This release is SO jam packed with fun stuff that I have one more card to share with you today.  It uses the I'm All You're All Stamp Set and the Speech Bubbles Die Set.  I think you are going to really love these.  The stamp set is a totally unique twist on some fun sentiments.  Just take a look:

How's that for fun?  I think you'll agree they make for a pretty cool card.


I combined the I'm All You're All Stamp Set and Speech Bubbles Die Set with my favorite Balloon Dies to create this fun card which is layered on, you guessed it, Stitched Mats:  Rounded Rectangle Dies.  I had some fun with this turquoise, teal, gray, and white combo and have you ever seen a more fun way to say happy birthday?  I'm all..."LOVE IT!"  ;)

I hope you enjoyed my creations and will join the rest of the team on the hop.  You'll want to leave comments along the way because Laura gives out a $15 Lil' Inker Designs store credit to a lucky commenter each day of the hop.  It could be you.  I'm sure I'll see you on the hop and tomorrow for another fun day of release projects.  See you then!

Chrissy Larson <---Yup, that's me!!!
Don't forget you can get the new release right now in the Lil' Inker Store!
