Heart 2 Heart Challenges - Good Day Sunshine

Welcome to another fabulous week of challenges at Heart 2 Heart!  I am looking forward to some great participation this week as I am always looking to be inspired and enjoy seeing what everyone designs.

This week I decided to try out the fun and cute coffee cup cut from the NEW Artistry Cricut Collection.  I absolutely love how this turned out and hope you do too!  Isn't it too fun?!  I cut the Coffee cup out twice, once on the Canary Fundamentals cardstock and then again on White Daisy cardstock.  I cut off just the lid portion of the White Daisy and glued it to the Canary cup.  The "wrap" was cut out of Kraft cardstock and a piece of Cranberry cardstock was placed behind the heart to make it pop.  I did realize the "wrap" is not to appear as it is snug on the coffee cup, to give that dimension, so be sure to lower it a bit so it does not sit too close to the top.  (I cut the coffee cup at its coordinating pieces at 4".)
The backside of the Canary Fundamentals paper was used for one of the stripes as was Cranberry cardstock and this fun pattern from the Cocoa Fundamentals.  Do you love it?!  I do!  The reverse side of the Cocoa Fundamentals was used to back the coffee cup.  The coffee cup was 3-D on the front of the card as was the sentiment, "I'm going to my happy place."  That image came from the Seaside Workshop on the Go stamp set that is only available through the end of this month!  It was stamped in Cranberry ink and some twine was wrapped around the cup to finish off what I think turned out to be a cute and simple card.
The Artistry Cricut Collection was newly released on August 1st and has 700+ fabulous new cuts, three coordinating stamp sets (I think these stamp sets are my favorite from those that are included with the collections), and comes with our beautiful cardstock!  There is a digital version now offered, at a reduced price then when purchasing the cartridge.  Click HERE for more details.
Thanks for stopping by and hop on over and see us at Heart 2 Heart Challenges, being sure to share your artwork with us!

Make it a great week and make it from your heart!
