Ginger Blossom Coasters

Hello everyone! I am so glad to be back to my blogging world! Shortly after my last post I got a new computer and it has really taken me this long to get everything the way I like it and be able to post pictures! UGH! I really love my new computer but it was really a pain to not have all the programs that I have grown accustomed to.

So, I am back and I am ready to post some new pictures and tell you more about Stampin' Up! My first post of the new year is a birthday gift for a friend that I just finished up. I was so excited about how they turned out that I wanted to post it right away! I hope that she doesn't read the post before tomorrow (that's when I am giving it to her)!

This is a set of four coasters that are really meant for pictures. I had seen someone else alter these coasters and knew that I could do the same! I used mostly new products from the NEW Spring/Summer Collections catalog! If you would like to see a copy, be sure to let me know! I am so excited about all the new products! One new product is the rub-ons! If you have never used rub-ons before then I would love to show you how! They are truly wonderful! Because these coasters didn't leave a lot of room for bulk or three dimension, I had to use just paper. So, there are no brads or ribbon. I needed the coaster to be flat so that the glass wouldn't wobble off!! So, the run-ons made a perfect embellishment! I hope you enjoy!

Card Recipe: Stamps- none; Paper- Ginger Blossoms designer paper, Ruby Red, River Rock, Groovy Guava; Ink- Ruby Red (for some sponging); Accessories- Eastern Elegance rub-ons, scallop punch, circle punches, word window punch
