LID June Release Day 1 - Coffee Cup Gift Cards Galore

Hello! The day is finally here to start sharing projects with the BRAND NEW June release at Lil' Inker Designs! There are SOOOO many incredible new stamps and dies in this release - and if you like coffee, kitties, or babies - you are going to LOVE this release!!! You can find the entire new release HERE!


You should have arrived here from Chrissy Larson - if you stopped by here you can refer to the entire blog hop at the bottom so you don't miss a stop or a chance to win the amazing giveaway. I also have links to all the new products I used on today's cards!

Today, I went a little crazy with my favorite new die from the release - a perfect gift card holder called To Go Coffee Cup Gift Holder Die! Because, who doesn't love to give or receive coffee gift cards, right?!?!?


It really is SOOO completely genius! You slide the cover off... (random fact - did you know they are called paper "zarfs?" You can Google it! Kind of fun to say to your barista and see if they know or not! Haha!)...and then...


It opens up to reveal the gift card inside! Eek! The brilliance of it gets me every time!


I made these 4 that are more girly verions - love that this is a fabulous way to use up some of your pattern paper stash as well!


And then I made these additional 5 all in more manly colors. Notice those fabulous sentiments on all of them as well? Those are from another of my favorites from this new release - Coffee Talk 2 Stamp Set - the PERFECT accompaniment to this fabulous new die!


For each of these, I die cut the main panel from white cardstock, then the lid and "zarf" from pattern paper. To add pattern paper to the front of these, I did some partial die cutting - super simple - then trimmed off the extra with scissors to make it fit just the front of these. I made 7 of these in about an hour, while simultaneously being interrupted by my daughters as they were doing their homeschool work and needed my help. They really were just that easy!
