Welcome to day 2 of our blog hop with Clearsnap, makers of fabulous inks, sprays, embossing powders and so much more! The KellyCraft Design Team and Clearsnap Design Team will be showcasing KellyCraft's new line of EZ-De's Stamps paired with Clearsnap Inks....
With the holiday season rapidly approaching, my thoughts have turned to gift giving. While it may be a little early, if I don't get started now, I will never get it all done! I have made coasters in the past, and when I saw the EZ-De's by KellyCraft Flourish Alphabet stamps, I thought how perfect they were to make monogram coaster sets. And I love how the Crafter's ink works on all types of surfaces and that there are multiple colors to choose from.

First, wipe the excess dust off of your tiles. Then stamp the flourishes. To get the lighter color, I use a technique I learned from my wonderful friend LaJeania Hicks. Ink your stamp then stamp on a scrap piece of paper to lighten the ink. How light you want the color determines how many times you stamp it on the scrap. I did it twice then stamped on the tile.
