Whew! That's a ton of information but I'm so glad that you made it this far! If you've been following me for any length of time, you know that I might be a bit of a coffee-a-holic. I have several projects to share with you so let's get started!
Here's a project that uses the August My Monthly Hero kit:
The coffee cups and coffee art/sentiment are from the Main Kit. They've been stamped with Hero Arts Intense Black and colored with alcohol markers. The coffee art/sentiment have been heat embossed in white.
The background uses the fun new CG748 Distressed Tile Bold Prints. It's been heat embossed in copper. The sheen is amazing!
My card was inspired by the Color Throwdown:
Yup, I had fun with that set! I started off with a panel from the Foliage Paper Layering pack. I knew I wanted to use the CG749 Floral Doily Bold Prints. The detail work on that is GORGEOUS. It has been heat embossed in white.
All the images have been stamped with Intense Black and colored with various alcohol markers. I'm such a fan of clustering images. Do you spy the lemon and the beautiful silver spoon? The addition of the sentiment balances out the card. The extra trim is from a clipped frame I made using the Nesting Postage Stamps + Nesting Rectangle Infinity Dies.
My card was inspired by Fab Friday:
I could have shared a TON of projects because this particular release is my FAVORITE. I managed to design just one more. I'm a true fan of the infinity dies collection and I'm a happy crafter that Hero Arts released the Tea Pots + Cups with handles!
So I used the new DI565 Cups and Handles Infinity Dies. Do you spy some other infinity dies in my design? The tea bag is made from a Tag Infinity Die using vellum.
The sentiment has been stamped on a Nesting Rectangle Infinity Die. Any guesses what it was stamped on? I used an upcycled Starbucks coffee sleeve.
The Cup has been cut from a panel from the Sunshine Paper Layering Pack. I heat embossed the Hero Florals - Nasturtium bloom in white. The Deco Pattern Stencil has been used with modeling paste for added texture.
That's it for me! Next up is the awesome Clare! If you get lost along the way, here's the full hop listing:
