Totally Pinterest Inspired!

The weekend is upon us....are you getting inky or scrappy?

Well, today I made something I've never attempted before....Coaster tiles!!! They are totally an idea I found on Pinterest. :)

 I purposely bought the textured 4"x4" tiles at Lowe's. I wanted my coasters to have character! :)
 My patterned papers come from an In Color paper pack from SU!
 I rounded the corners and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink. I also sanded the edges of the papers.
 See all the nooks and dips in them? I love it!
 I stamped each paper with my Circle Circus stamp set (SU!) in chocolate chip ink and Tim Holtz tea dye ink. (for any of you that know me.....this coaster ^^^^^^^^ is my favorite....I wonder why? :)
Also for any of you that know me...or have been in my know that these coasters are going to fit right in!!! Green and Brown....a perfect combination! :D

Supplies used:
4"x4" decor tiles from Lowe's
patterned paper (thin is best)
Glossy finish Modge Podge
Rubber stamps and inks
Sanding block
Sponge dauber
Clear coat poly Spray
Patience for drying process! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time...

These are just darling, Melina. I have stamped on coasters before using Stazon and then spraying with a sealer. I have made several sets as gifts. Every time we go to my inlaws, I see the set I made for her an vow to go home and make a set for myself.....maybe some day I will really do it!
