Christmas Coasters

Kristine here today and I am very excited to share some fun coasters I made with  
Chip Board Coasters from Creative Cuts and More
Stampendous Stamps, and Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage.


The Chip Board Coasters come in packages of ten.



To make these I started by sponging Ranger Old Paper Distress ink on each of the coasters.


I stamped Music Score background (Stampendous) two times with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink on tissue paper.

I tore the tissue into four pieces and adhered it to the coasters with Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage. 


For this one I stamped Holly Basket (Stampendous) on tissue and colored it with Prisma Color Pencils.
Then I adhered it to the coaster with Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage.

When it was dry (which happened very quickly) I stamped the flourish from Jumbo Cling Poinsettia (Available at Michael's) on the edge with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Aged Silver Embossing Enamel.


I used Jumbo Vintage Santa  for this coaster.
I stamped santa on tissue and colored him with Prisma Pencils.  Then I adhered him to the coaster with Fast Finish Decoupage.  I stamped the banner with Memento Cottage Ivy dye ink on tissue and then added it to the coaster with Fast Finish Decoupage.

When dry I stamped Scrolled Medallion with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Shabby White Embossing Enamel.  I also used my VersaMarker to add ink to his hat and embossed with the Shabby White EE here too!.


For the third Coaster I used Jumbo Cling Poinsettia (Available at Michael's). I stamped the poinsettia on tissue paper and colored with Prisma Pencils before adhering it to the coaster with Fast Finish Decoupage.
When dry, I stamped the flourish from the Jumbo Peony Set (Stampendous) with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Aged Gold Embossing Enamel.


 For the final Coaster I used Stampendous Snow Bird.  I stamped it on tissue and colored with pencils and then adhered it to the coaster with Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage.

When dry, I sprinkled Shabby White Embossing Enamel  randomly on the edges of the coaster and heated until it melted.

These coasters are quick and easy to make and make terrific gifts!
I hope you enjoyed my project today!

So do you put anything over the top so that can be used as coasters? Or are they more of a "pretty" thing? I am looking for Christmas ideas. Thanks!

I used beacon fast finish decoupage to seal it!
