Garden Beauties

I return with the project I promised using the retired From the Garden stamp. You can view the card if you scroll down to the next post. I hope this stamp will return one day to our SU catalog - its such a pretty image! I kreated these tile coasters and trivet set to give to my sister-in-law for Christmas. She had a 'winter' themed coaster set and I thought this would do nicely for just about any other time of the year. I inked up my stamp in Black Stazon and firmly pressed the image onto my tiles and also my trivet. I used various Pastels to color in my images. I wasn't sure how they would 'take' to tile, but I feel in love with the soft look and it worked beautifully. I sprayed the final projects with 3 coats of Krylon Matte Finish sealant spray. They make a great little gift. Hope you like them! If you have an questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

For now, go kreate

Kim, these are even more beautiful than promised! I have a set of coasters made for me by a student's parent and I adore them. I'll definitely need to find a stamp that would be worthy of the coasters. Thanks for another great idea!
