You Made It Monday, Vol. 65




It's time for another You Made It Monday and I can hardly wait to share the amazing creations I have spotted while looking for all that you have shared online for us to enjoy. You guys made it hard for me this month and it sure seems like more and more of you are sharing your awesome creations which I love. Keep it up! We hope you enjoy our monthly You Made It Monday post as much as we enjoy sharing it with you. So, keep sharing your creations and they could earn you $10 to spend in the Lil' Inker Designs shop. We hope that will keep you creating with our products and keep you sharing your creations.

Here's this month's sampling of awesome creations! 

First up, is a stunning card from Meghan, @madebymeghank.


Her card is so super cute and we all can relate to needed the super powers of coffee! I love the true super hero feel of this card and how our Super Coffee Die & Stamp Bundle looks like he is just about ready to hop off this card and save the world. Love it!

Next up is a gorgeous card from Barbara, @btarayao.


I love the simple colors and layout on this card. It is simply fabulous and the red of the flowers really makes the sentiment from Hand Drawn Thankfulness Stamps pop. I love the choice of a plaid pattern backing the sentiment. Just lovely!

Next up, we are getting ready for the holidays with Lari, @dashermammo93003.


How cute are these tags? I love the layers, the ribbons, the cute animals from our Season's Greetings Stamps, and so many other fun touches. I also see a little bit of wood grain peeking out on the kraft background created with our Cover Up Die: Stitched Woodgrain. These will make any package or bag dressed and ready for a party!

I love this card from Linda, @linda_layton.


Just look at that amazing rainbow striped alcohol ink background! I love how she used it in multiple ways on this adorably CAS card! It really sets off her great coloring of the little guys from our I'll Be Brief Stamps. So perfect with the simple and colorful sentiment. So fun!

The final card today from Julie, @juliepeddicord.


I simply can't resist our
Cover Up Die: Diagonal Plaid. I just love the Julie mixed up the colors and flipped the orientation of the die to get such a fun background. Those little hearts won me over too! Thanks so much for sharing!

We hope you enjoyed this glimpse of the amazing creations you guys are sharing using the Lil' Inker Designs products. I can't wait to see what else I discover in the week's to come and have the pleasure of sharing them with you on our next addition of You Made It Monday.

September New Release Hop Day 2

Hi there, crafty friends!! Did you enjoy yesterday's post?

I'm excited to be here again today with a small new release for you and more new projects I made.

Read if you'd like to :
  • see our new products
  • learn how you can win an awesome blog hop prize
  • read about receiving a FREE item with any purchase 9/25 and 9/26 only!







Here is another look at our Spooky Word Die Large! and now it compares to our original version of our Spooky Word Die. I can't imaging you NOT having these dies in your collection if you enjoy crafting for Halloween! Our new Spooky Word Die Large is perfectly oversized where it can be used solely as a focal image. You'll enjoy using sentiment in your collection to create phrasings with it as well. Our new large die measures  3 7/8" w x 7/8" h and above you'll see a great photo comparison between the two different sizes.

Next up is a brand new die that I compelled to design for you. You might say that this release is totally spooky! It's our new Spooky Script Word Die!

I repeated my favorite Halloween word but in a script font and I used different, but still, spooky eyes that I thought were a better match and I LOVE the results!! The size is 3 13/16" w x 2 1/4" h so it's perfectly oversize for all your card fronts! I don't think this one is going to last and I have a limited quantity so if you really love this, I wouldn't wait!


I recently redesigned our Bats and Broomsticks Die Set this year and I want to tell you all about it.


The witch die in terms of style and size is unchanged and that means she still coordinates with your Bats and Broomsticks Stamp Set as well as with the witch image in our Seen On Halloween Stamps. What's great about this die now is that she's been etched out in the center for die to stamp alignment. We also removed the registration marks that were in the original die set so now the witch can be used to create a shaker or just as a window to the inside of your card.  We've also updated the bat in the die set to coordinate with our previously released Stitched Bats Dies and I have to say it's a terrific improvement! It's such a cute shape!

I have a couple of cute tags for you today that I'd like to show off.


I used more and almost ALL of my favorite Halloween papers from AGES ago from Cosmo Cricket. I need to go on to eBay and see if anyone has one of these 6x6 pads because I LOVE THESE PAPERS! Any whooooo - I started with our Anytime Tags Dies and cut my plaid paper base. Then using the same size tag die, I cut the black stars tag from a scrap I had and decided to make this into a gift card holder so they layers are adhered together on the left side only and this opens like a card. Then, I cut our new Spooky Word Die Large from blush paper and glued it to my top layer and I used a Stitched Ghost Die Cut stamped with a face from our Boo Balloons Stamp Set. Then, I dressed him up by using my Bow Die Mini and then snipping off the ends so his bow tie was the perfect size. I added the stamped phrase you see from our A Haunting We Will Go Stamp Set because this tag definitely turned out to be cuter instead of spooky - and I like that!!



Next up is a tag I made just in the spirit of Halloween and the love for coffee using supplies from Lil' Inker Designs.

I started here again with my Anytime Tags Dies which I then die cut with our Cover Up Die: Basket Weave for added texture and interested. Then, I die cut and colored the mug die from our Coffee Talk 2 Die Set with colored pencils and stamped it with a face from our Boo and Faces 2 Stamp Set so that it looked like a pumpkin! The leaves were cut from various die sets including Seen On Halloween and Thankful Thoughts, My Sentiment Flag was stamped with a small greeting from our Seen On Halloween Stamp Set. Isn't this adorable?? I love how it turned out!!!

I'd like to invite you to hop along with our Design Team so you can see what they've made with thee cute new dies. Here's a list of everyone participating in our hop today:

September New Release Blog Hop Day 1

Hi there, Crafty Friends!! How are you?

I'm excited to be here today with a small new release for you. Ready?

Read on to see :
  • our new products
  • how you can win an awesome blog hop prize
  • about receiving a FREE item with any purchase 9/25 and 9/26 only!







New to the store today is our Spooky Word Die Large! Not too long ago I did a poll on Instagram and TONS of you mentioned you wanted a larger version of our Spooky Word Die and so, voila! Here it is! This die is so fun for Halloween paper crafting and you'll love working with it in its new size. It's perfectly large where it can be used solely as a focal image. You'll enjoy using sentiment in your collection to create phrasings with it as well. Our new large die measures  3 7/8" w x 7/8" h and above you'll see a great photo comparison between the two different sizes.

Next up is a brand new die that I literally couldn't resist designing for you. You might say that this release is totally spooky! It's our new Spooky Script Word Die!

I repeated my favorite Halloween word but in a script font and I used different, but still, spooky eyes that I thought were a better match and I LOVE the results!! The size is 3 13/16" w x 2 1/4" h so it's perfectly oversize for all your card fronts!

I have a couple of projects for you today that I'd like to show off.


Here's a card I made with the new Spooky Script Word Die. You can see that it's a perfect focal point size and it's as cute as it is spooky! It's seen here with my coveted / hoarded Cosmo Cricket papers from AGES AGO. It's my favorite of all time! I also used my Ghost Border Die Set, Boo and Faces 2 Stamps and Bats and Broomsticks Stamps. Isn't' this cute??


Here, I used our Bats and Broomsticks Die Set. See those cute little bats? I love them! I kept this simple by using a grey square base and one of the Silly Stitched Circle Dies from the Silly Stitched Die Set. I did some sponging on the inside of my card on white stock using Distress Oxide Inks and created a pretty night sky. I love how this turned out. The black sparkly paper I used for my witch and one bat really add a special element.

Here's this month's sampling of awesome creations! 

First up, is a stunning card from Viola, @papiersucht.


The background on this card is just fabulous and I love all the little details from the grid to the striped black and white strip. There are so many things for the eye to see but the thing that really makes my heart smile is the adorable kitty from Cat Treats Stamps cut with the Cat Treats Dies. I also love the sentiment scattered all around the card. So cute!

This card from Kristina, @kristina_craftypaws, uses a product that is an oldie but goodie.


I just love this card using our  Quick Notes Star Fold Out Die. I love how she made this look like a shooting star on the card front. Throw in some rainbow stripes and I am over the moon in love or maybe over the stars. ;)

Next up, is a pretty card from Mika, @mikagiddings.


I love the simple watercolor background. The colors are beautiful and perfect for making the Happy Birthday To You Word Die pop. It is simple and gorgeous. I'm so happy you shared it, Mika.

I love this card from Mimi, @mimizitrone.


I just love how the colors on our Blossoms & Banners Stamps pop on this card. The white on white texture is great and cutting the image with Blossoms & Banners Dies and popping it up on a cute scalloped circle is the perfect with to make it stand out. Love!

The final card today from Nicole, @fam.ligaard.

 

We all know I can't resist a cute coffee card and there is nothing cuter than our
Super Coffee Die & Stamp Bundle. I love the kraft and black on this card and our super mug is looking extra super with Nicole's awesome coloring. It's amazing!
