It's a Lil' Inker Designs Sneaky Mini Release!

Can you believe that Laura was sneaky enough to release some amazing products without having a full blown release?  She must have known that you guys would NOT want to wait for this stuff.  You can find it all over at the Lil' Inker Store.  Goodness!  I haven't even showed you what you'll find over there!  Ha ha!  Check it out:

First up the Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles.  There are 4 sizes of dies in this set:

Largest die cuts an exact A2 stitched rectangle at 4.25" x 5.50" (this die does not feature dual stitching and cuts a stitched rectangle only)

Three additional, Dual Stitched Rectangles die sizes are:
 3 7/16" x 4 5/8", 2 1/2" x 3 5/8", 1 1/2" x 2 13/16"

You can read even more about it over at the Lil' Inker Blog.

Next, Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Squares!  Here's a little info on sizes that come in this set.  More info can be found on the Lil' Inker Blog.

Largest die cuts a stitched square exactly 4.25" x 4.25" (this die does not feature dual stitching and cuts a stitched square only) 
Three additional, Dual Stitched Squares die sizes are: 3 7/16", 2 1/2", 1 9/16"

Finally, wire cutting pliers.  These things are awesome and make separating dies SO much easier!

Now I can share with you what I made using these new goodies!

For this card, I used the largest Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles to create my card front and then cut the second largest Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles out of my card front at an angle.  I then pieced back in another rectangle that I cut from a different paper.  I cut my cute coffee cup using the Coffee Cozy Die Set.  I stamped "Let's Chat" from the Coffee Cozy Stamps on the coffee cozy and added "hey" from Hey, Foxy Word Dies to finish off my sentiment.  A few hearts and I was finished.  LOVE! 

I decided to go with a 6" x 6" card when using the Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Squares because this pattern paper just screamed square to me.  I used two different square dies to make my layered center by creating a window with one die and a diamond with the other.  I stamped a sentiment from Balloon Builders Stamps on a strip of vellum which I wrapped around the card and added "Sending you" using the Mini Envelopes Dies & Accessories to add a little more to the sentiment and make it all pop.

I hope you enjoyed this mini release and my cards!  Here's a rundown of the products I used today.  Have a great day!
