INSPIRATION wednesday: DIY mugs

hi all, it's eryn here with you today!
THIS week's INSPIRATION image is an EASY DIY:
create inspiring MUGS with your unity stamp images!!


after seeing the EASY tutorial on the mugs above,
i thought i would give the same technique a try with my 
unity stamps + StaxOn ink in black 
{the mugs are actually just plain white ones i got at the dollar store!}
 it helps to have a mug with some sort of a flat surface - these mugs have a bit of a "flat" space on the front that i could stamp the image on.  you can kinda see what i mean a bit better on the faith hope love one in the image above.  
LOVE how this one turned out!

can't you just see yourself sipping your morning cup of coffee in these! 

 THIS image was the hardest.  not going to lie it took about 25 tries on getting it to look like this. 
SOME HELPFUL HINTS:
~have a wet rag near by so that if the image doesn't come out crisp & clear like you wanted you can QUICKLY wipe it off and start over.  {i had to do this on ALL of the mugs above!}
~the first two images above i left on my smallest unity handle, that worked great
~the last image i inked up & then took it off my handle and pressed it on with my hand

LASTLY:
put the mugs in the oven at 
350 degrees for 30 minutes

how FUN is that?!?!
& of course you can use ANY unity stamps but i used this kit:

{WHICH is only $10 TODAY!!!}


THANKS for letting me share...
have an AWESOME rest of your week!
XOXO,
