Hero Arts Caffeine Note Cards (set of 8)

Click HERE to go to the World Cardmaking Day post and giveaway!

Hi everyone! Leslie from Love To Scrap 2 here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, a fun set of 8 note cards for a coffee lover that I splattered with water, distressed with ink, and in general made them look somewhat messy. I used the Hero Arts Caffeine Fix Digital Kit and a fun time was had by all, lol!


These were pretty simple to create as all eight are the same. Working in assembly line fashion, I printed eight brown versions of the ‘low battery’ image from the digital kit and fussy them, and put them in a pile. I heavily distressed the edges of the card bases to make them look ‘dirty’ and put them in a pile. Using the Tweed Pattern stencil and dark brown ink, I stenciled several pieces of medium brown cardstock, cut them into smaller pieces and layered them on dark brown cardstock. I adhered those to the fronts of the card bases along with the ‘low battery’ images. I inked the bottom of a red solo cup and ‘stamped’ it onto each card front to resemble a sloppy coffee cup ring, splattered a little water and adhered a few brown sequins.


That’s it from me today. I hope you have a great week coming up, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Scrappy hugs!

Hero Arts Caffeine Fix Digital Kit – Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hello everyone!

I am here playing along with the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  a2z Scrapbooking is one of the sponsors for the hop, among lots of other sponsors. a2z is giving away two prizes, which is a gift certificate for the store and the winner’s choice of a digital stamp set. If you have not figured it out, the theme is Spring and you need to use coffee, tea or cocoa image on your project. The hop will run from March 24-31.

On my card I am featuring the Hero Arts stamp digital kit called  “Caffeine Fix”.  This is a great set to have, it has many coffee, tea and cocoa images and lots of sentiments. On my card, I used the coffee cup image and resized them and put lots of cups on my card.  I colored each one with copic markers – B2, 4, 6, YG21, 03, 17, 67, Y17, 38, YR68, R81, 83, 85 and V20, 22, 25.  I wanted to use bright colors since the Coffee Lovers Hop is all about Spring.  I also wanted to use a stencil since the challenge this month with a2z is “Playing with Stencils”.   The stencil I used is called Confetti, which I sponged Hero Arts Soft Pool on the background.  The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Stamp Set Thank You Messages.

If you like any of the products I used on my card, please stop over at the a2z Scrapbooking Esty store. You can also use the code “Donna15” to receive 15% off of a $25.00 order.
