Coffee Loving Collaboration Hop With A2Z!

The Coffee Loving Cardmakers Design Team is so excited to be collaborating with the A2Z Scrapbooking Design Team!  Be sure to visit all of the blogs in the hop for chances to win a couple free digital sets!  Wait until you see all of the awesomeness we have in store for you!  And A2Z is launching a new line of digital stamps and there is a rafflecopter drawing to win the entire new set!  Be sure to stop at the A2Z Blog to enter this drawing!

 I'll be sharing some projects today using a couple Hero Arts Digital stamp sets and one of the brand new A2Z Digi sets.. both are available in the A2Z Etsy Shop now!  Here's what I've created for your viewing pleasure:


It was a lot of fun to play with the Hero Arts Kitchen Silhouettes Digital Kit!  There are images, backgrounds, brushes and a few extras included in this kit.  For this card, I created most of my scene in Word before I printed.  I chose a couple of the colored images (the coffee pot and the cookie jar) and layered them one in front of the other.  You could make the jar a little smaller and it's a sugar jar!  But I decided that it was a cookie jar.


Then I took one of the sentiments from the A2Z Hug In A Mug digi set and layered it over the coffee jar.  I left enough room around my images so that I could die cut the scene after I printed it and have it be my base.  I chose the cup image in gray and layered the spoon over that; printed and cut them out and popped them up over the pot for just a little bit of dimension.  A couple sequins and a little baker's twine and this baby was done!  So easy!


You didn't think you were gonna get out of here without a little bit of foil did you?  I mean... these are digis and I printed them on my laser... of course I was going to do some foiling!  I decided to print this cool background onto some woodgrain design paper instead of just plain cardstock.  Then I ran it through my Misti with some sparkly red foil and I LOVE the way it looks!


I printed a few of these sentiments from the Hug In A Mug set in a few different sizes leaving room around them for die cutting and chose this one for this card.

I don't know if you know this, but when you use foil on something, you are left with a sheet of foil with negative space on it.  And you can buy toner paper that you can then use that leftover sheet with the negative spaces and run it through on some of the toner paper and the foil that's left sticks to the paper ... sooooo... I did this:


After I foiled the piece of toner paper, I die cut the top layer banner on this one from it.  I created a shaped card using the larger banner by folding a piece of black cardstock in half and placing the banner die so that the top cut was just above the fold (so it wasn't touching paper and didn't cut it).  Then I attached the foiled piece to that.  It's a fun and easy way to make a shaped card!


And another really cute sentiment from the Hug In A Mug set!


For my final card for today, I printed a background from the Hero Arts Artistic Circles Digital Kit on white cardstock on my laser and guess what I did...lol!  Um... foiled it?  This time I foiled it in gold and then used some Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry distress inks to add some color.  When I was done blending the inks, I splattered some water to add a little bit of texture.


I added one of the single stamps from the Artistic Circles set to the mug from the Hug In A Mug set before I printed it out.  I colored it in with my copics and cut it out, popped it up and used another awesome sentiment from the Hug In A Mug set... flowers and sparkly Doodlebug Sprinkles and done!

I'm entering this one into the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Anything Goes Challenge with a twist of Anything Goes!  Can't get any better than that!

Lisa thanks for leaving me such sweet comment. To make the handle of my cup (second card), I use a smaller die of the same set (Hero Arts Nesting Tea Cup Infinity Dies) and did partial die cut for the curvy side, and hand cut the side closer to the cup. :)
