Stamped Chipboard Coasters

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.

Before I got this botter, I had never heard of Fast Finish Decoupage! This amazing decoupage medium drys super quickly (no waiting hours between coats), super shiny, and COMPLETELY FREE OF TACKINESS!! 

Here is the set of four coasters that I made.

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

chip board coasters.

I stamped Music Score background 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 the first one I stamped Holly Basket 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 with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Aged Gold Embossing Enamel.

 For the final Coaster I used 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.

It would be really easy to mass produce these and they would make great gifts.  I am going to make some more to give to friends with the bottles of Sangria that we give for gifts every year!

Some of the other ladies on the Stampendous Design Team made projects today too.

Check them out!
Thanks for stopping by!

WOW! What a wonderful project - and a great gift idea, too! Looks like this decoupage medium is super easy to use and, I like that it dries quickly. Means a lot when you are rushed for time and want to make a lot of things. Thanks for your inspiration!
