It is not very often that I like something I make once I've finished a project. But I ADORE these coasters. These will make you want to put that glass of sweet tea DOWN! I purchased this set of glass picture frame coasters and then stamped and decorated squares to insert into the frames. I am just beside myself loving how they turned out! This first picture is how they look all stacked up in the holder. SO SO pretty I think! I'm planning to get more of them and stamp more.
I used some new stamps and some old sets as well as other new goodies I can't wait to tell you about! All of the inserts are 3x3 Basic Black card stock with a 2x2 Whisper White card stock square matted on top. The first insert was stamped in Basic Gray with the flourish stamp from the Friends 24-7 set. I then inked the edges with the Basic gray ink to distress it a little. The "friends" image is from a new set in the Occasions Mini Catalog called Tiny Tags and is just the perfect font, don't you think? The butterflies were cut from Regal Rose and Taken with Teal card stock using the Stampin' Up Beautiful Wings Embosslits die. The "Bling" is Stampin Up too! (Oh my gosh, that makes me HAPPY!) It's from the Eggcelent Eggs Kit which is also in the new Occasions Mini Catalog. Be sure to double-click on the picture so you can see the detail!
The next coaster's insert was stamped in Basic Gray with an image from the Asian Artistry Hostess Set. First, though, I sponged a circle in the top left of the square to simulate a sun using Regal Rose classic ink. The word is from the Fundamental Phrases stamp set and the butterflies are more of the Embosslits.
The insert for this coaster was first stamped with the French Script background stamp. The heart was punched using the Heart to Heart punch and was then stamped with another image from the Tiny Tags set. All of the images were inked and then stamped off onto a scrap piece of paper before stamping onto the insert. This is what gives the pieces a faded and distressed image.
The last and final coaster insert was stamped with an image from the Baroque Motifs stamp set. It is still one of my favorite sets and images! The Regal Rose flowers were punched using the Trio Flower Punch and then the bling was adhered into the center of each flower. Finally, another image from the Tiny Tags set was stamped in the bottom right corner.
PLEASE tell me what you think of this project! And have a lovely and wonderful day.
