Cut It Up Bugs and Critters Challenge

I'm excited for two things!

1. It is supposed to get up to 77º this weekend, WooHoo!!!

2. It's time for a fun, new challenge over at Cut It Up.

Our new challenge over at Cut It Up is Bugs and Critters!
Create a project that has a bug or other critter on it. Don't forget a die cut!

Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is My Scrap Chick, and you have a chance to win a $20 certificate to their store.

For my project I  chose a to use Ladybug Love to create a coffee mug.
I have a reputation with my family for being unapproachable until I've had my first cup of coffee.
I once paid my daughter $5, when we were camping, to bring me a cup of joe so I didn't have to get out of my sleeping bag :)
I thought this mug suited me perfectly.

To create this mug I used Oracal 651 vinyl which I purchased from Expressions Vinyl.
You can purchase this vinyl here.

The cut file comes with three layers in case you want your spots to be a different color. I wanted my spots to be black, so I only cut out two layers.

I cut the black layer first, and used transfer tape to attach it to my mug. 
I then cut the red "wings" and attached it with transfer tape on top of the black body.

Viola, my mug was finished. Easy, Peasy and oh, so cute!

Supplies Used: plain white mug; cut file from My Scrap Chick; Oracal 651 vinyl in black and red; transfer tape.

I can't wait to see your creation so pop on over to the Cut It Up blog and join us in the fun!
