GIU Day 3

Good Morning!
I have a really fun project today to share with you!  I stamped the mug image from the Unity January 2017 KOTM (https://www.unitystampco.com/product-category/kit-of-the-month-exclusive-unity-subscription/current-kit-of-the-month/ ).  I purchased some tiles from a home improvement store to make some coasters.   I used embossing clear ink and stamped the image right on the tile, poured the embossing powder over the image, and then took my heat gun and melted the powder.  CAUTION:  The tile will get really hot!  I used an oven mitten to protect my hand and any surfaces.  You could use a thick wood cutting board and put down a towel that you don’t care if it gets dirty to help protect any surfaces.  Since the surface of the tile is slippery, I am going to add Mod Podge to help seal the image so it does not come off and add some felt to the back since it is very rough.  These would make great gifts!  I have a set of 4 and an up close pictured below.




Please comment below and let me know what you think!  There will be 2 random winners picked from the comments on my blog for the week to win 25 stamps from Unity!  Come back tomorrow and see what fun project I will share!
Have a wonderful day!
Naomi

  5. what great coasters! good idea to seal the embossing because I have learned from experience if you don't seal it will chip off.

  16. Naomi, I made some travertine coasters for Christmas but I hadn't thought about using glossy tiles and embossing them. I like the choice to use different colors so your guests will know which coaster is theirs.
