My Stampin' Up! Classes

Lovely gift idea...

A hand-stamped tile makes a great gift!

This 6" x 6" Rialto beige tile was purchased at Home Depot (4 for $6.25 or something like that). Wipe off the chalkiness with a wet cloth, then stamp with Stampin' Up! craft pads.

This tile uses the Print Pattern background stamp, as well as the monogram letter "L" and Whimsical Upper & Lower alphabets (retiring June 30).

Pour Glassy Glaze embossing powder over the surface, tap off the excess, and sponge more craft ink around the edges for an antiqued look. Bake in your home or toaster oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. When the tile cools, add ribbons and set on a nice easel. I found a wooden easel that matches the Chocolate Chip craft ink at Six Star (similar to a Dollar Store) for $1.25.

Tile trivia: The breaking strength of Rialto beige 6" x 6" tile is 500 pounds.
