Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop with a2z Scrapbooking!


Oh boy, oh boy!  It's here!!  The Coffee Blog Hop is my most FAVORITE hop and I look forward to each one!!!  It's so fun to see everyone's creations and of course the chance for prizes is too good to pass up!

Today I'm with the gals over at a2z Scrapbooking sharing our favorite Hero Arts products with the summer theme.

Here's my card...


I used the fun Hero Arts Paper Layering Palm Tree Pair fancy die and colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  I used a Mini Ink blending tool to create the sun with Hero Arts Bold Ink in Dandelion and then smudged some Pool ink  on the edges.  For the "sand" I used some kraft paper torn and inked up the edges with the ombre ink Sand to Chocolate Brown.  My coffee cups are from Kelly's Portland and colored with bright colors for a summer feel.  (side note the hubby was not a fan...lol).  Finally for the sentiment (not to take away from the scene) is from an older Hero Arts Everyday Sayings.



For the supplies I've used on my card and more fun Hero Arts supplies head on over to a2z Scrapbooking and use code NICKI15 for 15% off $25 or more purchase.  Proceeds from the store helps the Behcets and Celiac communities. Big mahalo for stopping by!

Mondays call for DONUTS!

(source)

Hello!  For my card I've been dying to use that sweet donut from Hero Arts Kelly's Portland clear set.  I wanted to make a huge box of donuts the simplest way possible.  Grabbed some fabulous Hero Arts Shadow inks in Soft Sand, Bubble Gum and Pool and inked away!


For a fun "donut box" look I framed the edge using a Doodlebug Design polka dot vellum.  Did you know the Tombo permanent adhesive runner works great and you can't see the adhesive?!  To finish the card I cut out a banner and white heat embossed the sentiment from Hero Arts Cheers Messages by Lia.


I wish you all a very happy Monday and MAHALO for stopping by!!

Greetings from Hawaii

Happy Monday all!

I finally got my hands on some goodies from the latest Hero Arts release and today I wanted to showcase the awesome Paper Layering Palm Tree Pair die.


This fun die creates so much dimension and the best part is it also cuts an outline!  I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to add color.  I wanted an oval frame to highlight the palm tree and love how the edges of the palm kinda peaks out!


 The sentiment was created using Kelly's Outline Letters and Hero Arts hybrid inks in Intense Black, Strawberry, Tangerine, Dandelion, Green Apple, Summer Sky and Orchid.  I added a couple of black gemstones for fun.

That's my card for today!  Do you all have any favorites from the Hero Arts release?
