Christmas Tiles

Here is a set of Christmas tile coasters I made for a gift exchange. I needed a gift pronto and no time to go to the store. I had 5 tumble tiles left in a box so I started stamping. Lucky I had '5' tiles because I messed up the very first one I stamped, so I had to be perfect on the next 4! These are stamped with Black StazOn ink. The stamp set is a retired Stampin' Up! hostess set. (If you need to know the name leave a comment and I'll look it up for you.) I stamped the center image, then masked it and repeatedly stamped the verse for the background. It says "It's Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air."

The stamped image was colored using pastels with blender pens. Finally, it is sprayed with a mat finish sealant. I've heard if you spray it with a gloss finish sealant or use markers that the colors run. Also, coloring on tiles really chews up your blender pen so I use an old pen.

I used furniture pads under the tiles so it won't scratch the table. The furniture pads are those round felt adhesive pads that you put under your furniture to keep it from scraping wood floors. I like to use the ones that are about 1 1/2 inches cut into quarters and placed in each corner of the tile.
