Tile Coasters Tutorial


The latest challenge at Scrappy Frogs is to stamp on something other than paper, which is just perfect for me, because……I have always wanted to try my hand at making tile coasters and I’m thrilled I did! It was, by far…the easiest project I've ever completed. Piece of cake. I found the tiles at Lowes. They came 8 to a box. After harassing  the boxes, I found 8 of the smoother tiles and took them home….to my …. lab. ;)
I used a large French script stamp with Staz-On ink for the base of my tiles. After I let the background dry for mere seconds, I sanded it back down until it was barley visible. Next, I used the bird from Stampin' Up’s Always set.  Using my Copics, I gave it just a bit of springtime color. Super EASY! The entire project took  less than ten minutes! I might even see some tile coasters in your gift future!
Now it’s your turn! Head over to Scrappy Frogs and enter your project …quick!!! The winner of this challenge will receive an adorable apron compliments of Making Memories slice to wear while they are stamping on unconventional materials.

  1. LOVE your tiles! Love them so much, I may have to pick up that stamp set and give it a try. After you stamped the tiles, you didn't put anything on top to seal it?

  3. I sprayed mine with a clear acrylic, but only because I'm such a klutz and was afraid I'd spill coffee on them. As long as you use Staz-On, you should be fine. Good luck..I would love to see what you make and thanks so much for commenting too!

  16. These are lovely!! I've played with this idea- decopaged a Christmas napkin on tiles this year that turned out cute. But, yours are so classy looking. I may have to invest in some stamps. By the way, I glued some cork on the backs- makes them much more user friendly on furniture etc. Felt would also work.
