Stenciled Tiles

Tile

Here's another item the girls made at my Anything BUT a Card Club meeting last week. Wouldn't a set of these make a great gift for the host of a holiday party? I have made these tiles before, but the first one that caught my eye to using the Decor Elements stencils instead of stamps was THIS one by Kimberly.

Now I don't have a big selection of craft stamp pads, which you can use to stamp then emboss with either clear embossing powder or Glassy Glaze (thicker, chunky clear embossing powder), so I had to improvise. I used Real Red Classic Ink, and then for the swirl we used the Platinum Shimmer Paint (applied with a sponge dauber…don't get your sponge dauber too saturated with the shimmer paint or it will ooze under the stencil!). Then I used an acrylic sealer spray to seal them up. *Make sure you spray that outside!!! I sprayed my sample in my stamp room and got an instant major headache…not cool! (yes the instructions said to spray it in a well ventilated area, but of course I ignored that because I was only spraying a little bit…'nough said…that was not smart 😉

We used the Alpine Originals ribbon, which is retired from last year, but you can find it on the Clearance Rack for only $6.99!! Click HERE, then Shop Now in the upper right corner, and Clearance Rack is at the top of the left side. The Merry Christmas is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set, and we also used the Modern Label Punch. 

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love these tile coasters! Have you considered baking them in the oven to cure rather than using the spray sealer?
    The thought behind this is that when you put a sweaty glass on the coaster the condensation runs off defeating the purpose of the coaster. If you bake the tile absorbs the moisture protecting your table surface.
    Just a suggestion….
