We are back today with two gorgeous projects from Irit and Donna. Today is also Donna’s last day with us as a designer. She is stepping down from the team. We’d like to say a special thank you for all her designs this last year and wish her the best.
We begin today with gorgeous wooden coasters by Irit! I adore these! What a fabulous idea! Here’s Irit!
Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new post made for Inspired by Stamping.
This time I was asked to make a Home deco piece and I made something to use: a couple of tea coasters that are already on my living room table and shine with those white rain drops.
First I painted a pair of bare wooden coasters with Earth Safe Finish Black Chalkboard paint. This paint is great and I just made one single layer to cover the bare wood.
Then I stamped two images from my most loved new release set: Paris Love.
The images were stamped with white pigmented ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. As you can see those images are so crispy that you can see each and every detail even after the heat embossing .
As the next step I added the stamped (the say way) sentiment from the oldie, but the very goodie, (sorry, this one is all sold out) tea set. And as the final touch I sprayed a bit of white mist over the pieces and let them dry. I decided not to cover them with glaze as most of glazes are still sticky when you put your hot drink over the coaster.
Nest up Donna has created a lovely recycled tea tin. Here’s she is with her last post.
“Good morning! Donna here, showing you a sweet recycled tea tin. When I finished up the tea in this tin I was able to get the label off and I thought it would be a great opportunity to dress it up for a gift. Here’s a look at what I did.
I had to paper piece to wrap all the way around the tin
I love the decorative ribbon and the roses on top.
It always feels good to recycle something in a positive way rather than just dumping it in the recycle bin. I love hearing ideas of other items you have recycled.
We will be back on Thursday with Kendra and Lisa. Can’t wait to share what they have created with you! Have a great couple of days! Hugs, Joanna xxx
