Jen Carter Proud of You Racoon 1 wm

I couldn't resist using the cute little Lovie Friends StampsLovie Friends Dies one more time this release.  I put the cute little critter on a background that I die cut with the Wrapper's Delight: Sunburst Die.

I used my Minc machine to foil the stamped sentiment from the newly revised Sunshine Sentiments.  To do this I embossed the sentiment with fine detail white embossing powder, put the foil on top, put it in the transfer folder and ran it through the minc on heat level 2.  Don't try heat level won't work, unless you like the really smooshed look, LOL!  I LOVE that I can foil my sentiments!

I am going to enter this card over at the SSS Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge!

Jen Carter Cozy Donuts Coffee front 2 wm

Last card for the release.  For the white background I used the largest rectangle die from the super fun new Silly Stitched Die Set.  I used the next sized rectangle from the same die set on the pink sprinkles paper.  And, I also used one of the circles from that set behind the coffee cup too. I die cut the Heart Banner at the top after first using the Quilted Swirl Stitched Pattern Die to cut the pattern into the hearts for added texture.

The coffee cup was die cut with the new Coffee Cozy Die Set.  I used a piece of patterned paper to get the sentiment on the cup like that and it fit perfectly!  Also, can you see the score lines in the cup lid?  I love that detail! I stamped the coordinating sentiment from the new Coffee Cozy Stamps.

That's all I have today.  Thank you so much for visiting this week!  Don't forget to leave a comment to win.  The more blogs you comment on, the better your chances are of winning!  All of the Lil' Inker products that I've used are linked above & are available at the Lil' Inker Designs store now!  Your next stop on the hop is over to Amy Kolling's blog!
