My HUGE coaster project

Okay, here are the first batch of coasters that I have made up for a friend of mine...I will probably use several of these images over again so I won't post them all multiple times. I still have 4 more sets to make...but I might make another 2 sets for her just in case she wants or needs more. The first coaster I used the "Doodle This" stamp set, I love how this one turned out and I love the swirls on the sides :)!

For this next coaster, I used the "Baroque Motif" SU stamp set...I also used both the red and the black "Stayz On" ink. I first stamped and cut out the flower images on a piece of paper, next I stuck them to the tile and then stamped the swirls pattern over top of them. Next, I unpeeled the cut out images and I was left with the spots I was going to stamp my flowers. I then took the small flower stamp and inked it up with red ink then stamped the flowers where I had marked them out before. That technique is called "Masking", for those of you who didn't know...I am new to this "Masking Technique". This one turned out really nicely I think :D! It looks better in person I must say, this image looks too dark...hmm..oh well !!

This next coaster is also from the "Doodle This" SU stamp set, and also another stamp that I like to use :D! I used black "Stayz On" ink for this image too...I found that you had to let the ink totally dry before you sprayed on the Acrylic protective coating on your coaster. If you don't you will have your ink run and make a mess of your coaster...and we don't want that now do we!

On this coaster I used a stamp that I had recieved from Kim from Creative Diversions blog a few weeks ago, and I think tha this was the perfect medium to use this stamp with. It looks kind of Irish or Gaelic or something...anywho, I LOVE how it turned out :)!

The next coaster I used the branch stamp from the "Best Blossoms" SU set, I love how it turned out...what a neat look!

This next stamp set that I used on the next coaster is called the "Asain Garden", it is a clear acrylic stamp set that I picked up from the Photo Memoriesstore in Bayers Lake. It is the store I always get my really nice cardstock for good and fancy shmancy projects :)! I really enjoy using this stamp is put out by "Gel-A-Tin" stamp company. I just got the Birthday "Gel-A-Tin" set the other day at the new stamping/scrapbooking store I found out in Tantallon.

The next coaster I used Penny Blacks script stamp, I just really love all of Penny Blacks stamps but I must say I really like the Hedgehogs :D!
