Life Is Short, Eat More Donuts {Lil' Inker Designs}

Hello friends! It's Day 3 of the Lil' Inker Designs October Release! Hop with us and comment along the way, for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate each day! (If you're just starting here, head to the Lil' Inker Designs blog to start at the beginning!)



I'm so excited to be a part of the Lil' Inker Designs team, and I have enjoyed hopping around to see all of the designers projects. This is a huge release of goodness, both holiday and all-occasion. The past two days I've had some winter projects for you, but today I have a non-holiday card. Today is Halloween, and it's also my mom's birthday! (Happy birthday mommy!!!)  Double the reason for sweets and treats, so I thought I'd share a SWEET project today.

I used the new Eat More Donuts stamps, and coordinating dies on this card, as well as the Stitched Mats: Rounded Rectangles dies, plus the Flags & Tags banner die. I had this paper which was just screaming to be used on the card - Carta Bella's Cool Summer paper. Are those sprinkles perfect or WHAT!?
And since it's my mom's birthday, how about one more birthday card for today? This card features the Rounded Rectangle dies again. (Seriously - I'll be using these lovelies on EVERYTHING.) I also used the brand new I'm All You're All stamp set, and the Speech Bubble Die Set.  I inlaid everything pieces together on this card, and used the negative pieces on the inside. First, I die cut two rounded rectangles, in the star and aqua papers. Then I die cut the speech bubble from them (together, in the same pass through my machine.) Then I just paired the pieces up, two for the front, two for the inside. 
I hope you've enjoyed the Lil' Inkers October Release blog hop this week! I've had a ton of fun. Thanks for stopping by, for commenting, and for sharing your excitement on this new release. Feel free to be totally enabled, and go shop, shop, shop for your holiday crafting!

Love your cards. Like everyone else, the donut is my favorite, but I'm really starting to like the WooHoo set, could make some funny cards with it.

Love that the sentiment is split into the front and inside of the card. Great idea.
