A Hero Arts Retailer

Summer Coffee Hopping


So excited to be joining in the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop as a sponsor again! Today I’ve got a Hero Arts project for you that uses Digi stamps and some snarky coffee sentiments I typed out in a typewriter font (Gungsuh in my program).

The background for the top left card was made with ink cubes pressed onto cardstock and overlapped. The background for the lower right card was made by repeating the coffee cup image from Caffeine Fix digital stamps and the women are both from the digital Make Your Own Sewing Fashion kit.

To make them summery, I dressed them (with Prismacolor pencils) in red, white and blue. I added rhinestones to both cards and added a little coffee cup to the lady on the left. It’s the same size as the background cups. I have another up on my blog because I couldn’t stop making these little Anne Taintor-inspired cards.

a2z Scrapbooking was founded to help support charities for people with Celiac disease and those with Behcet’s disease. The employees are all volunteers so that every purchase you make means the most money for the charities a2z Scrapbooking supports. One of our favorites to support is Camp Gluten Freedom for children.

Thanks for stopping by and for supporting a2z Scrapbooking Supplies! Happy hopping!

Check out the coffee projects our talented DT has today too!
