Welcome to the weekend! My word for the Scrap ‘N Stamp daily challenge is ‘drinks’. I really wanted to use the Honey Bee Mugs & Kisses die set that I used for our Tea for Two Inspiration Hop again. But of course, in a different way. Then I thought – well, Valentine’s Day is coming up! It’s always fun to share a cute note card with friends and coworkers. These little mugs fit the bill perfectly!
You could decorate these cute mug notes for any occasion! Think ‘thank you’ notes, ‘let’s meet for coffee’ notes, etc. Here’s 3 examples that I created.
Aren’t they cute?! And making them in different colours adds to the fun. I think that the blue one would be perfect for a co-worker!
For each mug, I die cut a white back, and then die cut the coloured cardstock fronts. Then I decided how to decorate each mug. For the blue mug, I kept it simple. Blend Faded Jean distress oxide onto the bottom & edges of the mug. Die cut the steam from white cardstock, and the coffee from light brown cardstock. Lightly blend Vintage Photo distress oxide around the edges of each, and glue them into place. Next, stamp the sentiment from the Impression Obsession Coffee Mug Sayings set in Nocturne ink. Add some highlight to the mug with a white gel pen. Finally, attach the front & back by placing glue only on the handle of the mug – and glue the mug front to the die cut white mug back.
The pink mug is decorated the same way; blend Picked Berries onto the mug, and add the white highlights. Die cut the heart from red cardstock, then blend Fired Brick around the edges. Make it pop with the white reflection on the top curve of the heart. For the whip cream, lightly blend Vintage Photo ink around the edges & into the folds of the whip. Before gluing the front & back mug pieces together, stamp the sentiment from the Poppy Stamps Diamond Sentiments set on the inside. You can see how the mug opens, in the photo below.
For the neon green mug, I stenciled the pattern across the bottom of the mug using a retired MFT stencil. Next, the sentiment is stamped in Nocturne ink, again using the Poppy Stamps set. I’m going with a hot chocolate theme for this mug-you can see the lightly blended marshmallows, floating in the hot chocolate!
By creating a little note card that opens up, you can write a little something to the recipient, if you want. Switch up the colours and sentiments, for different occasions!
