Coffee Hopping with Santa Snacks

Hi, it’s Chark here today sharing the cutest gingerbread boy and cocoa mug stamps from Hero Arts. I love anything gingerbread, from the cake to cookies to the adorable stamps this time of year and the wallpaper on my phone! So, of course I had to have the Santa Snacks Stamp & Cut set when I saw it. While I didn’t use the “mad” gingerbread boy with the bite out of him, I love him and will be using him in some fashion this holiday season…probably on a tag of baked goodies.

g

With this stamp and cut set, I made a large tag for the holiday and a shaped card. I cut out the largest ornament in white and kraft with the Hero Arts Ornaments Infinity dies and then stamped with Distress Oxides. They give a cleaner stamped image than the Distress Inks and you can use water on them too to color the image like I did on the white ornament card.

Here’s a closer look at each ornament.

 

I used a white Prismacolor pencil and a white Uniball pen, along with a couple other Prismacolor pencils. Happy Coffee Hopping, my caffeinated friends! Enter your coffee/tea/cocoa project to try to win from a2z Scrapbooking and LOTS of other companies! And if you want to see another project using this stamp set, check out Cindy’s adorable gingerbread step card here.

Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop with Nesting Tea Cup

Once again we are joining the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop, and we are a sponsor for the hop!

Today I have a fun card to share with you.  I used the Hero Arts Nesting Tea Cup Infinity Dies and created a faux shaker card using the inlaid die cutting technique.   A faux shaker card?!  Yes one without acetate nor sequins/beads/bits.

 

Instead of using sequins and beads, I placed a stamped panel instead in the area where the sequins would go.  So when the card is shake, the stamp panel shifts you see parts of the image only.  I have a small tutorial on my blog Escape To Stamping.  Take a look on how I put this card together.

The Nesting Tea Cup Dies are really fun.  I made a layered shaker card using the set, you could take a look here.  Besides using it all your coffee/tea/hot chocolate projects, the largest die is perfect for a shape card.   See this post.  Also I think this set would be perfect to make a mini book, a recipe book, perhaps cup shape ornaments?!  I’ve even made a charm for my planner, see this post.  Lots of possibilities!!  🙂  Check it out at the a2z Scrapbooking Etsy store.

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.

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.

You’re So Lovely in Bold

Looking for the Giveaway for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop?! Click here on the link and then comment on the rafflecopter link at the very bottom!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Giveaway

Hi, friends, Chark here today with a simple stamped card using the You’re So Lovely Flower Stamps. I wanted a stamp with lots of surface area so I could use the new Bold, Hybrid Hero Arts inks.

img_2096

I used Strawberry, Tangerine, Pine and the Ombre Neon Chartreuse to Blue. I did some masking, which worked fine for putting all the leaves in the background. The center of the flowers is the new Nuvo Ruby Slippers Glitter Drops. Here they are in close up.

I’m not a huge ink hoarder but I do looove the richness of the Hybrid Inks.

Happy Monday!

Coffee Loving Fall Hop & Giveaway

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Giveaway

Heeyyy, yooouuu guyyyys! Chark here today to join in the wonderful Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. What a great community of caffeinated, creative people this is! a2z Scrapbooking is happy to be a sponsor and offer prizes for the Fall Hop. And I get to join in today with this project.

I used my Boo Stamp and Cut for the little black ghost die cut, and colored him with a dark purple Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen…love the shine of these! The cup is from the digital Caffeine Fix set, and when I saw how the ghosts looked in vellum, they reminded me of steam, so I had to add them!

The sentiments are also from the Boo Stamp and Cut set. It’s pretty popular, so if it’s sold out in the store, all you have to do is hit the aqua Request Custom Order button and ask for it or anything from the Hero Arts catalogs! We can get it for you at no additional cost for requested items.
