Sugartree Stamps Hug in a Mug and Coffee Loving Cardmakers

Hi! It’s Sue here today. It’s the start of Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring/Summer Coffee Hop today. I made a card using a digital kit from Sugartree Stamps, which is exclusively available at a2z Scrapbooking etsy store. Here’s my card.

I copied the “iced coffee” stamp onto a word document twice. I sized them, so one would be larger than the other and flipped the larger one (so the straw would be on the right).  I printed them twice – once on regular printer paper and once on cardstock. I carefully fussy cut the printer paper one and then using patterned paper, cut the body of the cup and the coffee sleeve (which I’ve recently learned is called a zarf), using the printer paper outline as a template. I also fussy cut the cardstock iced coffee images. I adhered the printed paper to the coffee cups and added some color and shading with Copic markers. For the background, I used a mini stencil from Tim Holtz’s Mini Stencil set 3, which is a mini version of his Splatters stencil, and ground espresso distress ink, applied with an ink blending tool on a kraft card panel. The sentiment, from the same digital kit was printed onto natural cardstock, trimmed and adhered to the card panel. I adhered the large cup and popped up the small cup for a bit of dimension.

New to You – New challenge with a2z Scrapbooking!

Hello everyone!

It’s Donna her from Creative Lady, I am here with a2z Scrapbookng with a new challenge for January.  This months challenge is “New To You”. Use any Hero Arts product (Stencils, stamps, dies, embossing folders) to create a card with a product that is new to you! I have used a stamp set that I have had for a while, but never used the stamp “Love”.  My card is clean and simple.  I stamped two of the love images and cut them out. Then I took some of the black layering paper from Hero Arts and cut around the image to have another layer.  I love using black on my layering because it really makes the image or card stand out. I then popped the two images together, added the black background.  Then added the image to the card.  The ribbon I used was in my stash.  

So are you ready to use some of your new products you got for Christmas. Please come on over to a2z Scrapbooking and link your project to the blog. The link is on the right side top of the blog.  Oh did I mention, by entering you will be entered to win a $25 Gift Certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking store. Winners will be announced on the 16th of February.

Love - January

Gift Card Holder

Happy Holiday’s everyone,


I hope you all are ready for the holidays.  I am, my mother and brother came in today from North Carolina  and I have some more family coming in tomorrow.  I have all the trees decorated, the lights outside and the house smelling so good.  It is certainly the best time of the year.  To celebrate the birth of Jesus!!!!  


I am here with a2z Scrapbooking again with the Watercolor challenge.  I decided to do, probably, my last holiday card for this year.  I really needed a couple of gift card holders and found a design in the Silhouette store.  It was just perfect because I have three Starbuck cards I am giving as gifts.  I used two of my favorite stamp sets the Hero Arts Brush Strokes and Hero Arts Celebrate Everything.  The Celebrate Everything set is an older set, but a

goodie. A2Z brought it back again this year. This set is very versitle, it has a lot of different sentiments. Head over to the store and check it out. If you would like these sets, you can get 15% off, just use Donna15 when you check out.

Here is my card for the challenge:

These are the cards I made.  I sat them in the tree to show you.  The bottom two have a sentiment card with this cute heart to make this card.

Santa Gift Card

This is a closer look of the card inside the gift card holder on the right.  The first one is with the sentiment sticking out.

Santa Gift Card1

Closer look of the sentiment.

Santa Gift Card2

 ok, it’s your turn, hop on over to a2zScrapbooking blog and link your card in the challenge.   You have a few more days to enter.  The link is on the right side bar of the page. I can’t wait to see what you design.

Happy Birthday – a2z Scrapbooking November Challenge

Hello Bloggers,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I am here with a2z Scrapbooking for their November challenge “Anything Goes”. If you have not had a chance to join in on the fun, hop on over to  a2z Scrapbooking and post your project.  I am sharing a birthday card, I made with the Hero Arts Hello Flowers stamps. I chose to do the technique emboss resist.  It’s so much fun!  Here are the steps to get the image I created:

1) Stamp and heat emboss your image.  Allow image to cool.
2) Apply ink directly to the paper (over and around the embossed image) using a sponge or brayer.
3) Wipe the embossed image with a tissue to remove the excess ink.

Anything goes flowers

Also, don’t forget if you’d like to buy any products from the store, use the discount code, Donna15 to get 15% off. There are some great Hero Arts products! So please take some time and stop by there. If you are on social media, #a2zScrapbooking or @a2zScrapbooking is on Instagram or Twitter so come follow us!
