Stamping on stone tiles:
I stumbled across this idea during one of my YouTube binge fests and I love it because it’s such a quick craft to do but the end result is lovely. All you need are some stone tiles and some Stazon ink. I haven’t tried any other ink. I saw that everyone was using Stazon ink as it’s designed for all surfaces so that’s what I got.
For this, I cleaned the dust off the tiles with using a wet wipe. Actually, that was probably the most time-consuming part of this craft!
I laid out the tiles and I used my A5 steampunk stamp to stamp several of them at one. Because I was using a large stamp on an uneven surface, I missed parts of the tiles. In some spots it works because it kind of looks like that’s part of the stamp pattern but in any of the parts that were too empty, I used the smaller, individual matching stamps to fill in the gaps.
And that’s pretty much it! I let the ink dry for a bit and gave the tiles another wipe of a wet wipe to make sure no ink would come off during cleaning.
I did add a cork backing to the tiles to finish them off and prevent the coasters from damaging surfaces. If you don’t have sticky back cork board (what I used), some felt would do.
All that’s left to do after that, if they’re a gift for someone, is to wrap them up. I opted for some bakers twine and a simple tag attached with a mini peg with mine.
If it’s not a gift for someone else but is instead something you’re making for yourself, all that’s left to do is make yourself a cup of tea and enjoy your new coaster!
Like I said, this is a really simple and quick craft to do but it’s great for putting stamps to use on things other than paper crafts!
