A Special Gift for the Saturday Stampendous Challenge

Happy Memorial Day Weekend Everyone!

Today I am playing along with all of the Stampendous Ladies. There is a new inspiration for this month's Saturday Stampendous Challenge. This month's theme is gift making. Create a gift. Simple.

My gift is a set of coasters. It was so easy. I bought inexpensive tiles at Home Depot, brought them home and washed them with dish soap and warm water to get the tile dust off then set them aside to dry. On tissue paper, I stamped some of my favorite Stampendous floral images using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. I colored the images with colored pencils and then adhered the tissue to the dry tiles using a matte gel medium. While the medium was still wet, I sprinkled each tile with Stampendous Champagne Crushed Glass Glitter. I did add another coat of gel medium after the first coat was dry to seal the image and glitter. Felt circles were added to the bottom of each coaster for padding.

For my coasters, I used three terrific stamps: Daisy Thanks SSC1112; Cottage Rose CRS5034; Narcissus SSC1107. I love all of the Stampendous floral stamps. The best thing about Stampendous is that they have such a diverse selection of stamps, florals, cute 'kiddos' images, name it and Stampendous has it in their highest quality deep-etched stamps. Please check out their online store.

All of us at Stampendous would love it if you would play along with us this month. Please check out all of the challenge details here at the Stampendous blog and while you are there, please follow the links to the other Design Team members. Their creations are absolutely amazing!
