a2z scrapbooking | coffee loving cardmakers - collaboration blog hop!



Pattern Happy + Ellen Hutson LLC Blog Hop HERE.


SugarPea Designs Birthday Blog Hop
 HERE.

Hero Arts April My Monthly Hero Countdown to Creativity is HERE.



Welcome to the a2z Scrapbooking + Coffee Loving Cardmakers Collaboration Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog.  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the a2z Scrapbooking Supplies Blog!

You should leave comments along the way for a chance to win!  Prizes:  a2z Scrapbooking Hug In a Mug + Winner's Choice:  Digital Set.  Commenting closes on Thursday, April 5 at 11:55 pm with the winners announced on Saturday, April 7th.

I have two projects to share with you that I made especially for today's fun hop!  My first one features the Hero Arts CM235 Mouse Tea Party set.  I think this is one of the cutest sets that was released in the Hero Arts 2018 Catalog!


My card also features the Hero Arts DI411 Butterfly Confetti Fancy Die.  At the time that I'm writing my post, there is one left in the shop!  This die is wonderful and works great with the dryer sheet method.  

TIP:  layer die, paper + then dryer sheet folded in half.  The bits will stick to the dryer sheet and minimize the crafty mess!

The images have been stamped with Hero Arts Intense Black and colored with alcohol markers.

My other card features the a2z Scrapbooking Hug In a Mug digital set.


I printed the iced coffees twice and made the sentiment really large.  I colored the images with alcohol markers.  You can't really tell from the photos but I did fill some of the ice cubes with glossy accents.  


Next up is the spectacular Kerry Urbatch!  

In case you get lost along the way, here's the entire hop listing:

You and green make me smile. Have I told you about my straw free agenda? Which is crazy b/c I have lots of stamps with straws, but I'm trying to be plastic straw free in the year 2018, so I carry around my steel reusable straw and refuse glasses of water with straws.... But I love the card....

Awww...the mice...too cute. Love that butterfly die too. The iced coffee is a favorite image from that set and as I hop through...it is confirmed. Everyone loves that image! WOO! Glossy accents? Yes!

Arlene said...

Those mice are so darn cute. I almost picked that set up too, unfortunately budget parted me from them. And I love the coffee colored ice cubes and I bet the glossy accents really bring out the coffee feel. Love both cards.
