Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop & Lil' Inker Designs

Helloooooo there!!! Laura here and I'm excited to be back to share a project in support of the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!

Lil' Inker Designs is a Super Sponsor of the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I'm super duper excited about that! 

Is it your first time hearing about our company or stopping by? Well, welcome to you if it is! And if you're a friend or a fan, welcome back!! This little company was started back in 2010 with the help of a friend and professional graphics designer all because as a card maker myself I had an idea for a product I couldn't find on the market. Since that time, I've had so many ideas that I've just kept going! I work out of two rooms in my home here in Massachusetts and can often be found designing products while making dinner or answering customer emails from under the covers! 
When you shop with me here at Lil' Inker Designs you're supporting a mom-trepreneur and shopping small!

We're giving away some of our awesome coffee themed stamps and dies as prizes. 
Have a look!

Please CLICK HERE to read up on all the details on how you can participate in this fun hop and be entered to win a prize from me or from all of the awesome companies sponsoring as well. 

Here's a little something I made to share with you today.

I started with my Reap A Harvest Stamps and Dies which is the loveliest of crafting supplies for Autumn.

I paired these with our Coffee Talk Stamps and Dies as well as the banner from our Thoughtful Thanks Dies and sentiments from our Coffee Cozy Set.

I really enjoy the Reap A Harvest stamps because you can use them as two step stamps OR you can choose to work with the outline or solid images. Here I used both and did some ink layering with my Fresh Inks. People - have you tried Fresh Inks? HOLY MOLY! I haven't reached for anything else since and that's saying a lot because I was loving my Ranger Archival Inks with my clear stamps. There just such a softness to these inks that can't be beat.

Our Coffee Talk Stamps and Dies are fun because you can pick between an iced coffee cup and straw or one with a domed lid for whipped cream. SO FUN!!! Any DUNKS (Dunkin' Donuts) fans out there? I AM!!! Although, I do a lot more home brewing with my Ninja Coffee Bar which Santa brought me last Christmas. It's amazeballs! It even makes iced coffee and has a built in frother. I mean - I never knew I was missing out on frothed milk. Let's just say - coffee is a part of my every single day.

I hope you like what you see here and I hope that you'll check out our website too!

Here is some extra eye candy for you today made by our Design Team using our coffee supplies.

Thank you so much for joining me today! Again, don't forget to check out the Blog Hop HERE to read how you can participate in the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and win some excellent prizes!!

Here is everything brand new in the store this week.

I might just be the weeist bit biased but I happen to this we have a rockin' collection of stamps and dies for Halloween and what's even greater is that so many of these items can be mixed and matched and interchanged. CLICK HERE to shop out entire Halloween collection.

Here are the projects that I made to share with you today using new and previously released items in our collection.

Here I used the largest ghost die and face die in that set to create the ghost you see. How cute is that face? I was excited to see how nicely the banner die in our Thankful Thoughts Die Set displayed over our this ghost. So, I die cut the banner from black stock and using gold embossing powder I heat embossed a sentiment from the You've Been Booed Stamp Set. Cute!!! I then paired my ghost with the pumpkin from our Seen On Halloween Die Set and spider from the Spiderweb Greeting Die. Don't these all go so nicely together?

Here is another card I made starting with our Quilted Stitched Harlequin Die which I loooooooove!!  Then I had some fun with the You've Been Booed Set. This will go to a neighbor when we leave a Halloween treat anonymously at their doorstep. 

Do you "Ghost" in your neighborhood? I found this info on the web I thought I'd share in case you weren't familiar with this fun tradition. 

 Next up I got crafty with our Thankful Thoughts Stamps, Dies and Thankful Word Die and OH EM GEE this is a flippin' AWESOME set!!!!

I found this scrap of paper that I found in my stash that had already been sponged and splattered. YESS!!! I knew it was exactly the right background for this set and then I got INKY with my Fresh Inks. I started by stamping all of the florals and leaves. My favorite small bit in the set is the two step pinecone! LOVE IT! Once I stamped and die cut everything out I arranged it over my square twig wreath which I cut from taupe paper.

Then, as you can see above I used our Thankful Word Die over the design which I added some sponging to for effect and stamped in the sentiment you see to complete the greeting. I couldn't possibly love this more!! What do you think?

How about a closer look at some of our Designer's projects? I just couldn't resist sharing some of their talents here!
