Winter Coffee Lover's Bloghop- second coffee tag (STAMPlorations)

Wow, I can't believe it is time for another Coffee-Lover's Bloghop
I am sharing a tag that I made using STAMPlorations
preview-TheBeesKnees-WinterMug 

STAMPlorations is one of the Super Sponsors of the Bloghop. 
There are additional prizes to be won at the  STAMPlorations Blog.
Come check it out.

I stamped the mug onto a piece of designer paper that was pink with a bit of a grunge look. I painted the coffee with brown acrylic paint and glue. I used white acrylic paint for the snow. I covered the "snow" with glitter. I added green marker to the tree and red marker for the nose. The die cut snowflakes were also covered with snowflakes., I added pink rhinestones to some of the snowflakes.



The pink layer behind the mug started as a piece of white cardstock. I put different pinks and browns on a piece of plastic wrap and scrunched the wrap on the paper and let it dry.

I stamped the mug onto blue designer paper. I used brown acrylic paint and glue to color the coffee. The glue gave it a shiny finish.I stamped the cute little tree, snowflake and reindeer. I added white acrylic paint to make the snow. I added glitter on top of the white to make it sparkle. I added a pearl to the center of the snowflake. I used a green marker over the lines of the tree and I took a red marker and made a nose for the reindeer. I fussy cut out the mug and placed it on burlap over a candy cane stripped tag.
