" You've Got Style"
Still working on those last minute Christmas gifts here, so my project today focus' on something the majority of us love - Coffee!!! Especially the kind of coffee we can take with us while we're driving, at school, work, etc. I know my son is a Starbucks© nut so I made him his own stamped coffee mug to take with him to college on those cold mornings and then refill with Starbucks© on his way home when he's driving late at night. Yes, I'm safe posting his Christmas gift on my blog before Christmas. It's a really good thing mom's not "cool enough" to have her kids subscribe to my blog posts. LOL
I started out by taking a $1 store decorate yourself coffee mug, removing the paper insert and then placing onto white card stock to use as a pattern so I would know exactly how big my stamped replacement insert would need to be. After cutting out the traced patter, I stamped my mug images in memento black before stamping the coffee beans in memento cocoa ink and then coloring everything with prismacolor markers. Then I stamped my saying and color spritzed some cocoa ink over the colored images, rolled the insert up to fit inside the coffee mug, and PRESTO! I'm done. This part of my son's gift only took 10 minutes to make. Here's some photos of the rest of the mug.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs and leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.
