Hello all! Today I am sharing a tutorial that I made for the Eileen Hull Art With Heart Challenge. Our challenge during January is 'Fresh Ideas'. Remember that there is a great prize to be won, in fact it is the 3-D Oven die that I used just the other day.
First, die cut the Mug & Spoon from white mat board. You'll need two die cuts of the cup.
The Make-It-3-D die contains three different shapes that will help you turn many different dies into a 3-D project. You can cut them a shorter, if they are too large for your project. For the coffee cup we'll use the shape to the right. The die scores it at different places, which means that depending on where you fold it, it will fit differently sized projects. The shape to the left creates a more square form, while the middle strip is great for projects which are more rounded, and thus need more score lines.
When the multi medium is dry, smear some gesso over the shapes, but let quite a bit of the text show through.
This is my favourite part of the mug. I embossed the base in the Waffle folder, which has a texture that I thought fit pretty well with coffee cups.
Paint the shapes with Antique Linen and Pumice Stone Distress Paint.
I stamped the mug with stamps from Hero Arts. The hearts and sentiments were stamped with Jet Black and the splatters with Potting Soil.
The text in the background and the various paints gives the mug an interesting texture, and makes you think of coffee too.
This is the back of the mug with another sentiment.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
