Out on the tiles with vintage piano tunes

Oh how excited am I???? My project has been chosen as one of the Top 5 at the Stamp Man Challenge - wooo hooo!

And I am one of the Top 3 at the Addicted to Stamps challenge!! yay!

Hello Stampendous friends - are you ready for some new inspiration? :)

I’ve recently had a day of a complete ‘creative block’ so I asked my crafty friends where I can find my mojo again. Terry suggested she always finds hers in a cup of tea:). And so right she was because that's exactly where I found my inspiration for this project!

Today I would like to challenge you to use these gorgeous Stampendous stamps and powders to create unique tea cup coasters.

You will need:

US crafters:
Vintage Piano Perfectly Clear Stamps, I Love Paris Cling Stamp

Aged Gold Embossing Enamel, Shabby Blue Embossing Enamel, White Embossing Powder, Winter Wonderland Embossing Powder

UK crafters:
Vintage Piano Perfectly Clear Stamps, I Love Paris Cling Stamp,
Aged Gold Embossing Enamel, Shabby Blue Embossing Enamel, White Embossing Powder, Winter Wonderland Embossing Powder

Other supplies:
Clear embossing ink, Decopatch glue, matt emulsion paint, decorative napkins, Inktense pencils/alcohol ink based marker pens, smooth ceramic tiles.

If you played with my mystery candy game, I am sure you will recognise this stamp below! Isn't it gorgeous? And Santa was definitely listening when I said how much I loved it lol :>. Thank you so much Jill and the Stamp Man!

I have a full tutorial on how I made them but to see it, you need to hop over to the Stampendous blog :).
I've got to say -I absolutely adore them and I am sure I will be playing with the coasters again very soon!

I hope you enjoyed this this project and my tutorial and I look forward to receiving my tea party invites!

Big hugs
