CCMC Saturday Challenge!

Wowza, what a great week we've had over at Create with Connie & Mary with our Card "Create"tions Subscription. Lots of ideas, lots of inspiration and we have one more week left! And you can still subscribe and get yourself caught up. Each designer designs 4 cards with a chosen stamp set and includes all directions for creating each card in PDF format. Go visit now to sign up!

This is my Saturday #2 favor for the challenge this week:

Since my turn this week included the stamp set "The Great Outdoors", I thought I would continue on with the Masculine theme and make some coasters. These could be secured to a jar of peanuts or other snack as a small gift!

I used some coaster boards that I had on hand that I purchased a long time ago but you could also use Stampin' Up!'s Vanilla Coaster Board and cut your own. I stamped all the images using StazOn Jet Black Ink and colored using Inks, Blender Pens, Aqua Painters and Sponge Daubers. This project was so much fun!

Here I stacked all four of the coasters and wrapped Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon to secure them together and added a stamped tag:

Below are close-ups of each coaster:

Now, I know what your next question is going to be. You want to know how you can add a drink to the coaster and preserve it right? Easy peasy....I pounced on each coaster with my VersaMark Ink Pad and sprinkled Clear Embossing Powder and set with my Heat Tool. You can actually repeat this 3 or 4 times and keep layering the embossing powder! The more layers the better!

Thanks for stopping by to visit!
