Christmas Holly Tile Coasters

Another coaster design…

These coasters were made with Premier Decor 4×4 Ivory Travertine tiles I purchased at Home Depot.  The images were stamped with Stazon Timber Brown ink and stamps from the Heartfelt Creations “Elegant Holly Swirls – HCPC 3339” set (retired?) and the Gina K Designs “Merry Little Christmas” set.  Then I inked the edges with a sponge dauber.

Using the reverse masking technique, I created a stencil of the holly leaves by stamping the image on a piece of scrap paper and hand-cutting/removing just the leaves .  Then I dabbed on Stazon Forest Green ink with a sponge dauber.  I used a foam eye shadow applicator (the pointy tip) to dab on red Stazon Blazing Red ink for the berries since hand-cutting a stencil for these tiny shapes was too difficult.

Once the ink was dry, I used a Tombow sand eraser to lightly sand the stamped images and edges to soften them up a bit.

I cut squares of cork , ran them through my Xyron sticker machine, and adhered them to the bottoms of the tiles so they would not scratch the table when used.  Each set contains 4 tiles.

The Mod Squad Challenge is called “Falling Leaves” this week, and we are encouraged to use a leaf or leaves on our projects.  Pop on over and check out all the beautiful projects in the gallery.

  1. I love these. What wonderful coasters you created. I wish we had a Home Depot around here. These would be wonderful for entertaining or for little gifts as well.
