Cool Coaster Set by Deborah


The stamps and stencils I chose to work with this week with suggested a cool, funky theme, ideal for a teenager or student.

I’ve had a pack of chipboard coasters for ages that I haven’t done anything with (what’s new!) so I thought it was about time. Mine are around 10.5 cm across. These mdf coasters are a similar size.

I am rubbish at painting or stamping straight onto a substrate so I have covered my circles with painted papers made with a gelli plate (coming soon to That’s Crafty!) and various Tim Holtz Distress Paints.  I glued them together with Mod Podge: Matte.

I edged the coasters with Festive Berries Distress Ink applied with Ranger Inkssentials Cut N Dry Stamp Foam and a Black ProMarker, making the line deliberately wonky.

The figures are from the new Dina Wakley stencils for The Crafter’s Workshop: Mini Sally & Carly and Mini Casey & Penelope. You get both the positive and negative masks in each set - I placed the positive mask down and inked Ranger Archival Jet Black around the edge with the Cut n Dry Foam.

The word stamps are the new Ali Edwards stamps for Technique Tuesday: Incredible.

You Are Incredible:
The heart stamp is also from Technique Tuesday: Incredible. The arrows, dots and chevrons are from The Crafters Workshop: Mini Funky Tags, sponged with the black Archival and Hero Arts Neon Blue Dye Ink.

So Totally Cool:
The arrows are from Technique Tuesday Incredible. I’ve sponged black Archival and Neon Blue inks through The Crafters Workshop: Mini Cosmic Swirl and Mini Gears.

You Are Marvellous:
The chevron and mini camera aperture stamps are Bo Bunny: Mama Razzi 2. The dots stamp is from Bo Bunny: Distressed Textures, inked with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink.

So Totally Fantastic:
Arrows from Technique Tuesday: Incredible; flower stamp from Hero Arts World Dolls (stamped with Adirondack:Terracotta).

To use these as coasters, it would be a good idea to protect them/prolong their life with a couple of coats of Ranger Inkssentials Glue n Seal which is waterproof or Mod Podge: Outdoor.
