Hero Arts Winter 2016 Release Blog Hop
Welcome everyone! It’s time to start thinking about the holidays because if you are going to be making handmade cards this year it will be here before you know it!! I have 2 cards using the new Coffee Cup Tags Clear Stamp set that will hopefully inspire you!
For this card I went with a kraft/red theme. I used Hero Arts Light to Red Royal Ombre Ink Pad for the coffee cup. I also used a touch of vellum to have the cup pop off of the background that I stamped all over.
For the second card I used the Mint Julep to Emerald Green Ombre Ink Pad, and this really directed me into my favorite teal for the color scheme! I added some liquid applique to the top for the whip cream. Also want to know a little secret? The twine was wrapped around a prize I recently won from Tim Holtz and Mario 😉 Repurposing at it’s finest!
Next on the hop is: Jessica Frost-Ballas

LOVE LOVE LOVE the Coffee Cups! I’m a new card maker and I’ve been buying more stamps than using them (LOL). Hopefully, I’ll get cracking on the XMAS cards. thanks for sharing
Very nice! Love your colors for the fun coffee cups.
can’t wait for all the hot coffees and hot chocolates during fall and winter time haha. Thanks for sharing a great stamp set and ideas for cards. I hope to win of course and buy this set! Thanks!
Love your coffee cards, the liquid appliqué whipped cream on one is great.
Your realistic frothy topping makes me wish I liked that on my drinks. So clever to add dimension that way. The ombre/graduated colors on the teal cup are just lovely.
Love the green ombré effect on the cup and the use of the appliqué for the whip cream!! Very clever.
Both coffee cup cards are adorable, Jenn. It’s so fun to repurpose things – love this!
Great cards, but my fav is the teal card… and not just for the Tim & Mario twine, but how cool is that?!? 😉 Love the woodgrain background and liquid applique! Heard HA has a new puffy embossing powder that’s similar that I’m dying to see what it looks like compared to applique.
love that mint green. such cute cards. thank you for sharing them
I am dying to get this coffee set. You even made a card in teal, my favorite
color tones. Thanks for making my day!!
I am a coffee lover so you KNOW I love these cards. My favorite is the card with the emerald background. The color is so beautiful and I love the whip cream on top of the cup. Well done!
