You Made It Monday Vol. 5

In honor of the Winter/Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop that just wrapped up this week, I thought I'd share some coffee inspired goodness made with some of the Lil' Inker Designs coffee sets.  I found some cards while hopping along and others I found while out and about just exploring.   If you see a product that you just have to have and it isn't in stock at the moment, don't worry!  We are working hard to make it available as soon as possible. 

Our first project comes from the hostess of the Winter/Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, Amy!

Amy used the Coffee Talk set to create this delicious looking iced green tea latte.  I love how she added the touch of ice in a similar color to the drink inside the cup.  It really give it the perfect shadow of ice that you'd see as you sip on an actual drink.  Amy is a master of the coffee inspired creation and we are so happy to share another of her amazing cards!  Thanks, Amy!

Next up is a card  I found while hoping along the blog hop created by D.Ann.

I love how D.Ann added color with the blended stripe down the side of the card rather than coloring in the images.  It just goes to show you how versatile a set like Coffee Talk can really be.  The images are fun to color and layer but they look just as great in black and white!  I love the pink straw, D.Ann.  Thanks for sharing.

Seeing these awesome cards got me wondering what other creations you guys have made using coffee sets.  My hunt led me to this super fun card by Chitra.

Chitra used our Perfect Pairs Stamps stamp set to no only show off coffee but some other awesome food pairings.  Her stripes are so fabulous and the way she colored and laid out this card, you really can't help but notice it.  So eye catching, Chitra!  

Another fun find was this card by Suzanne Bier.

The colors Suzanne used are just amazing together and that paper pieced whipped cream and cup cozy...PERFECT!  I love how she colored her image with paper piecing.  Another great way to use the Coffee Talk set to create the perfect card and how about that sentimentSo fun!  Thanks so much for sharing, Suzanne!

I hope you don't mind seeing one more card using Coffee TalkLori's card was just too cute and cheerful not to share!

I just love how bright and cheery Lori's color choices made this card.  She expertly stamped the straw and it makes me want to take a sip!  Such fun, Lori!

Now, I would be crazy not to mention that if you love coffee sets, you will not want to miss out on pre-ordering our newly refreshed and improved Coffee Cozy Die Set and Coffee Cozy Stamps.  You can read all about them on the blog, here.  

Our new Coffee Cozy Die Set features an improved shape, stitching on the cozy and a brand new, stitched steam swirl die that's super fun!

Our new Coffee Cozy Stamps feature improved fonts and we've added in some new sayings and kept some of the favorites from the previous set as well. This is a MUST HAVE!
