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.

Mmmmm…Coffee

coffee

Hi, crafty friends! It’s Chark here today to show you a project I made for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. When I think coffee, I think caffeine and when I think caffeine, I think of being a parent with a young kid. Where DO they get their energy?! I made up a little gift bag but this could also be turned into a card. You could fill this for new parents with a coffee gift card, caffeinated chocolate bars (my college-age daughter loves them), or any kind of fun new-parent gifts.

I stamped the Lil Hoot owl stamps first and colored them with Prismacolors. Then I added eyelids with a thin marker to make the big owl look sleepy. I mounted them on a copper colored stenciled background and added the digi sentiment below their branch. Then I just layered the panel on corrugated cardboard from some packaging and some blue pearl paper.

I think this would be a hit at a baby shower.

Here’s a close-up.
