Guest Designer for Liz at Liz's Paper Loft

Hello everyone!!  I am excited to be today's guest designer for Liz over at Liz's Paper Loft.  I have known Liz, through blogging, for a couple of years now and I just love her style.  She is also one of my fellow team members on the super talented My Creative Time design team.  She has guest designers for the next couple of months because she had to have surgery and cannot craft.  I really hope that she has a speedy recovery because I miss seeing her fab projects.  Today, I am going to share a card that I made with the new You Are Perk-fect stamp set.  

I used my Cricut and the Love you a Latte cartridge to cut out this to-go coffee cup.  I welded two of the cups together in Cricut Craft Room and then sewed all the edges together with my sewing machine. 

The label is cut and stamped from My Creative Time's Fancy Frame Stamp & Die Set.  I then stamped the sentiment along with two of the cute little coffee beans inside of that and adhered it to the front of the cup with some dimensional adhesive.

I added a smaller to-go coffee cup to slip inside the two larger ones and added then the lid to the top of it so that it could easily be pulled out.  I also stamped another sentiment from the You Are Perk-fect stamp set to the inside of the card and tied the top off with some Cappuccino bakers twine from The Twinery.

I hope that I have inspired you to pull out some stamps and your Cricut and get crafting today......it is national craft month after all!!

So, I hear that Liz has some exciting news to share with you, but not quite yet.  However, in the meantime, while she's recovering, she is reading every comment!  Not only is she reading them, she's counting them, because at the end of all this, she will have two announcements!  The first will be a winner of some exciting BLOG CANDY!  The second, it's a big one...and no, she's not coming out with stamps...you just have to wait and see!  Hop on over and leave some comments for her.

Thanks to Liz for letting me come and participate as a guest designer on her blog today!! 

Hugs,
Amy
