TAGplorations~ Hug in a Mug!

Hello crafty friends, I'm back with a lil' tag for the

This month it's all about WINTER and the optional twist is: Texture Paste

I used the new Toasty  Mug stamp set along with CUTplorations Tags #1 and Hug in a Mug dies. 

I cut out the tag using the Tags #1 large die from a piece of cardboard and peeled some of the paper back to show the corrugated paper underneath, then added some music paper and tore pieces from that so the exposed cardboard could peak through. I added some Dylusions Vanilla Custard paint with my finger to mute and soften the background...LOVE that color, it's great in lieu of white gesso for a softer, vintagey..is that a word?;o)..feel. I then distressed the edges with Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo Distress Crayons. 

I watercolored the image from the Toasty Mug stamp  set with Distress Inks and fussy cut it out. I adhered it to my tag with foam tape for added dimension.I added some glossy accents to the coffee in the mug and doesn't it look JAVAlicious? ;o)  

I then added the Hug in a Mug phrase die cut from Kraft paper and a little button and twine finished off my lil' tag. 

I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty today! Oh and don't forget if you use code "STAMPGIRLAMY" you can get 20% off your purchase! :o)
