Sneek Peak - InStyle Stamps Marti Travel Mug

Hi Everyone!! I have to laugh every time I look at this mug. As you can see InStyle Stamps "Marti" is drinking martini but she's on a coffee mug! LOL! I wonder if people put alcohol in their coffee mug pretending it's coffee? The thought makes me laugh! "Marti" is a sneak peek of the new stamps that InStyle Stamps will be releasing this month!!

Actually. . .my Marti project went through several transformation. . .I, initially started off making a card but I messed up the background when I attempted to color it. I had used the wrong color purple and it didn't match the designer paper. Then for some reason I could not find a matching pink Copic marker for Marti's dress to match the pink on my designer paper. I grew a bit frustrated because none of the colors matched so I cut Marti out. I remounted her on the oval background and decided to put her on a mug instead. The colors still don't exactly match but I didn't care after this point! LOL!

I found this travel mug at Starbucks. . .it's the type that you can unscrew the bottom and add your own photos. Anyway. . .be sure to stop by InStyle Stamps website and check out the blog site. InStyle Stamps will be having weekly challenges and such on the site so be sure to play along!!!

Also. . .there's a current contest going on for some great blog candy so be sure to check out the details!!

Funny... we were at the local zoo this summer, and this guy had a travel mug like this (without the cutesy image, of course!). We overheard him saying something about how he thought the animals were shying away from him because of the smell of alcohol coming from the cup!!!

Wow, I like the final project! This is too cute & looks great on the mug! The image is adorable! I'm thinking that a few people must put alcohol in there mugs...remember Johnny Carson use to dish on Ed McMahan about that?

Hi Maria,

I love this Marti stamp and have emailed InStyle to ask if it will be stocked again but never got a response. If you have any interest at all in selling your Marti stamp, I'd be *VERY* interested :)
