Sending You...with a2z Scrapbooking

Aloha and happy February!  Its the start of a new challenge over at a2z Scrapbooking and we're getting in the mood for Valentine's Day for our challenge of "Any Shade of Red."


Of course I had to get out my Hero Arts Ombre Ink Light Ruby to Red Royal for the challenge!  I love making quick and easy backgrounds with all the ombre inks by just a quick swipe.  For some added fun I die cut some hearts using Hero Arts So Sorry Stamp and Cut and layered over a card panel before swiping to create a cool border.  Keep in mind the thicker your paper the bigger your border...kinda cool I thought!


I took the sentiment from Hero Arts Color Layering Graphic Flowers and just inked up the sending you.

That's it for me!  I hope you all will join us for this fun challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the store!!

Coffee Bean Christmas Tree with Hero Arts

Can you believe it's that time of year already!?  The Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is upon us and I'm super excited to join the fun!!  Amy and friends work super hard to make this the best blog hop filled with awesome inspiration and crazy generous prizes!  Not familiar?  Hop over and come join the fun!!

My coffee go-to set is by Hero Arts called Kelly's Coffee and Donuts and I decided to make a coffee bean Christmas tree.


I used Hero Arts Ombre ink in Light to Dark Brown and stamped out the coffee beans after creating a triangular stencil out of some scratch paper.  The little coffee cups were colored with copic markers and individually cut and adhered to appear as Christmas ornaments.  The little star is a die cut from silver glitter paper.

The card front uses Hero Arts Snowflake Border Background Stamp for a tone on tone look.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts Christmas Messages (my go-to holiday stamp set this season) and heat embossed in Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder.  Best part?  It's on sale over at a2z Scrapbooking!


The gals over at a2z Scrapbooking  have some delicious looking projects...go ahead and take a peek!

Mahalo for stopping by!!

More to Love!
