Need Coffee!

Aloha friends!  Super excited for this year's Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop!!  Amy and friends make this an amazing hop, so if you're new, come join the fun by posting a coffee, tea or cocoa themed project!

This is always an exciting time of year for me with the upcoming holiday season which kickstarts with Halloween in this household!



I used the super fun Hero Arts Kelly's Monster Stamp and Cut and colored with copics.  I used the speech bubble and filled with coffee beans from Hero Arts Kelly's Coffee and Donuts (one of my favorite coffee themed stamps). I thought it would be fun to have the bats flying around with coffee cups.  I'm thinkin' I might like bats more if they brought me coffee...lol.  All the stamps were purchased at a2z Scrapbooking and you can use this code NICKI15 for 15% off your purchase of $25 or more! 




Everything was layered on some Doodlebug Designs pattern paper.  I've joined the gals over at a2z Scrapbooking so check them out as well!

Hope you all have a fabulous time with the hop!  Mahalo for stopping by!!

No ifs, ands or bolts...

I've been having waaaaaay too much fun with the Hero Arts Kelly's Monster Stamp and Cut!


The sentiments are just soooo fun and this time I decided to paper piece Frankenstein with some left over pattern paper laying around.


I used some Lawn Fawn paper to create a Halloween themed frame.  For some added fun I decided to distress the paper with Hickory Smoke Distress ink.  I thought it gave it a little more Halloween-ish look.

Anyone else looking forward to Halloween like I am?  I'm definitely wanting cooler weather!

Christmas Envelopes with Lawn Fawn

Happy Monday friends!


I actually found some time this weekend to play with my new goodies from Lawn Fawn!!  Vanessa from Butterfly Reflections Ink hooked me up...I totally recommend her store for speedy service and huge selection of goodies!


I played with the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Envelope die using some glitter paper and used some scrap cardstock to create scenes and cover panels (just by using the envelope die to cut the panel I needed).  These envelopes will be perfect for holding gift cards or money for the holidays!

On the left uses the Lawn Fawn Scripty Merry die and I made a little banner with the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Cheery Christmas set inked in Lawn Fawn Yeti ink.

On the right uses the Lawn Fawn Cheery Christmas and the sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Tiny Tag Sayings inked in Lawn Fawn Fish Tank ink.

With all that glitter paper and texture I wanted to enter the latest Lawnscaping Challenge...


Mahalo for stopping by and hope y'all have a great week ahead!

Good Witch with Hero Arts

Aloha friends! Halloween is my absolute favorite time of year as it kick starts the rest of the holidays in this household.  When it comes to Halloween, I love the cute costumes and festive decorations. The scary stuff can I can do without...haha!!

Today I'm playing with Hero Arts Witch Feet Stamp and Cut which has the cutest sentiments!


The background was created using my new favorite Hero Arts Candy Stripe Bold Prints inked with Hero Arts Intense Black ink on orange card stock for a festive look.  I lined the edge with some Doodlebug Design Candy Corn washi tape for even more fun.

To create the image I used a pot (inked in Hero Arts Lime to Forever Green) from last year's holiday stamps by Hero Arts Merry Cactus to You, then masked it to stamp the witch feet inked in Hero Arts Lilac to Grape Purple ombre ink.


I added some spider webs from the set and the sentiment at the bottom and mounted on my card front with foam tape.  Lawn Fawn licorice twine finished the card!

Are you ready for the fall season?  I certainly am!!  Have a fabulous day and mahalo for stopping by!!!
