Coffee with Calypso

Hello friends!  Let me welcome you to my little blog if you're joining me from the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

I love coffee and really do not know what I'd do if I couldn't have it every day.  I know you'd want to run!  

This little card was created using the Close to My Heart Artistry Cricut Cartridge with a little help from Cricut Design Space.  I've welded 2 cups to make a shaped card and sliced and diced the lid into a couple pieces to layer it and give it a 3D shape.  Here's my Design Space File.  I have used this file for many projects so there's a few extra shapes in the file that are hidden.  

The cup is from the Calypso paper pack.  You can see the reverse side of the paper under the cup.  It's a great confetti design too!  There's also a sheet of adorable flamingo & pineapples in this pack!

The flowers and sentiment are from the stamp set is "A Bunch of Love."  

This set has matching thin cut dies which make it super easy to cut out!  

 I'm all about using dies or my Cricut to "fussy cut" my stamped images for me.  The inside of the cup has this wonderful sentiment which is included in the stamp set.  

Thanks for stopping by!  

P.S.  If you're a coffee lover, these stamps are being retired 7/31/16 so grab them before they are gone!
