Lil' Inker Designs March Blog Hop: Day 1



Welcome to the Lil' Inker Designs March Release!  Wait till you see all the ca-yoot stuff Laura has been "brewing" up!  Literally!  LOL  Today we are sharing the newest stamp and die set called Coffee Cozies.  This set is absolutely jam packed with fun stuff for those that LOVE coffee.  You should have arrived here via Alicia Thelin's wonderful blog!  Let's get started!!
                                   

My first card uses the Coffee Cozy dies to make up this cozy.  A little pearl accents here and there added just the right touch.  I've layered the coffee cozy on top of the large flag die from Flags and Tags.  Laura has done it again with her gorgeous sentiments for this set.  I want to mention that this set of dies has "registration marks" on it for easier alignment but by no means do you have to use them for lining them up when stamping.  I had NO trouble at all stamping my images over the die cut pieces.  Laura will be sharing a video on just how to use these new "registration marks".




My second project uses the coffee cozies WITHOUT the dies.  I don't mind at all to cut things out and these are a breeze.  I paper pieced the cozies and added some lids with pearl accents again.  I jazzed up the chevron cozy with some Cream Button Twine.  I just love this sentiment.....it's so punny!  Here, I used the smaller flag from Flags and Tags for the sentiment. 



That's it from me today but I know the rest of the DT that are showcasing Coffee Cozies will have some more great inspiration for you!  Remember that there will be prizes during the new release so please check the Lil' Inker Designs Blog for all the details!  Your next stop on today's blog hop is my best friend, Jen Carter!  Let's pop over there to see what she's got up her sleeve!
