Coffee Loving Cardmakers Guest Designer: Rainbow Coffee Mugs

Hi Crafty COFFEE-LOVING Friends,
I am SOOOO Excited to be Guest Designing this month for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers group! It is a wonderful facebook group and blog that allows caffeine loving crafters to show off our coffee, tea, and cocoa cards and crafts!
For my first post, I decided to go with rainbow colors because it's almost St. Patrick's Day and I'm Irish which means this month is all about clovers, luck, rainbows, and hopefully a Pot of Gold.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q:Are you Irish? Have you ever been to Ireland?
A: Me? YEP! I think I'm about 70% Irish but my brother lives in Dublin, Ireland so I like to claim I'm 100%. And of course I have been to visit my brother in Dublin but I have also been to Galway which is gorgeous!


I started by lining up the mugs to see how long I had to make the card. Turns out it needed to be 4.25 x 7.5. Not your typical card size but I wanted all the mugs to have their cute little faces showing!
Next, I picked my background paper. I knew I wanted to use this adorable rainbow paper pack from Sunny Studios and since we all LOVE coffee, I chose HEARTS. Then made a center piece using the plaid and brown so that the mugs would stand out a little more.



I colored each mug to match one of the hearts and added some glossy accents to the coffee inside, whip cream, crazy eyes, and mustaches to give them a little extra pop (hard to see in the pics)

Thank you so much for stopping by and for having me as a guest on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog. I had so much fun bringing you a rainbow of coffee and I hope I gave you a little caffeinated inspiration and maybe luck of the Irish for the month. Please visit my other blog posts and Instagram here and you can answer my "Make Crafty Friends Q & A" on all my posts so we can get to know each other. Cheers!

  7. Promotional mugs provide very good branding opportunities to organisations. These mugs are an excellent way of promoting the brands of your company in the market and to make your products and services popular among your target audience. steampunk mug
