Welcome to the Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop. Whether this is your first stop or your last I hope you enjoy the Blog Hop.

To be honest I kind of struggled with what to make this month, but after I needed a gift for a gift exchange I decided on making tile coasters.

These coasters are so easy to make and they look beautiful. I got some tiles off of Amazon and I stamped them with the Medallion stamp with Stazon ink. I then baked the tiles for 10 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees. After they cooled off I added felt circles to the bottom. As a gift I wrapped four of them in some stripped ribbon and put them in a gift bag.

I love making these because they are inexpensive and yet make a great gift for someone.  I made myself a set a few years ago and they are still looking great.

For my second project I am actually sharing a card I made a while back. Actually I cased it from someone but can't find the original at the moment to give credit. 

I must admit that this isn't the card I planned on sharing but I can't find my card that I made and I have looked everywhere. My craft room isn't even that messy. I know I will find it when I least expect it but it really does bother me that I can't remember what I did with it after I made it. I guess these late nights and waking with a baby is getting to me. OK, enough about the lost card and my life.

This card uses a stamp set that is going into retirement at the end of this month, Inspired by Nature and a Sentiment set that is also going into retirement Short & Sweet. I used Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, and Early Espresso Card stock & Ink. The ribbon is Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon.

I hope to share my original blog card soon but until then, have a great time Blog Hopping.

I love the card! Even though it wasn't what you originally planned on posting today. Can't wait to see the other one when you find it :-)

That card is beautiful! I will miss Inspired by Nature so much! What a great set and I love the colors you used on the card. The Medallion stamp is perfect for coasters! What a wonderful (and inexpensive) gift! :)

Love the tiles, I've done them before but always forget what a quick and easy class they would make. Thank you for sharing. Your card is amazing!

I so love the tiles. I purchased some and then never followed through. I'd love to do that as a class! I just love your card, too!

Nancy Berg said...

Your card is beautiful! I hope you find the missing one too. I am always losing supplies very frustating. I will miss the Medalion Background but your tiles look great! Thanks for sharing.
