tiles, tiles everywhere...

The new Angel Company catalog is out and it's wonderful!!!! New stamp sets, new paper sets, quick matchbook scrapbook kits (Everything is pre-cut - just press out the pieces and put together - and it's double-sided paper!!! I love it!!) and scalloped punches!!! Check it out, click here to shop on-line. January specials are also posted on my TAC shopping site:
Stamp of the Month/Vintage Stamp of the Month
January Specials: Organizer Stamps
Have fun shopping!

So, what do you do with these stamps once you get them? Try making some coasters! I decided coasters would make good gifts so I hit some of the local and not so local home improvement stores and picked up some 4X4 and 6X6 tiles to make coasters and trivets. Staz-on ink was the trick for the base ink and Brilliance ink worked well too. For this group of 4 coasters, I smudged edges with a cotton ball loaded with staz-on ink, stamped with three TAC stamp sets (Basic Birds, Live Inspired and Spring Dream), baked at a low heat and then put cork shelf liner on the back. Simple, quick and wonderful!
