Tea Coasters Inspiration by DT Priyadarshini

Hello everyone,

I am here with a new inspiration post for Rainbow Craftykari blog. For this month's inspiration, I am making 2 different types of tea coasters and I will be sharing the technique with you. 

TEA COASTER 1: Rhinestone Technique

How to make them:
1. Paint MDF coasters with desired colours and allow to dry
2. Start with applying glue on all sides and stick gold ball chain
3. Stick rhinestones/Kundan stones as per choice leaving enough space for the cup and allow to dry completely
4. Apply a coat of clear varnish to seal (on both sides of the coaster) and let it dry
5. Once dry, the coaster is ready to use.

Materials used:
  • MDF coasters
  • Paint
  • Rhinestone/Kundan stones
  • Gold ball chain
  • Glue
  • Clear Varnish

TEA COASTER 2: Heat Embossing Technique

How to make them:
1. Paint the coasters with desired colours and let them dry for 24 hours
2. Select stamp and use Mini Misti or Misti for stamping (Acrylic block can also be used)    
3. Rub anti-static powder tool 
4. Warm the heat gun
5. Use versamark ink to stamp on the coaster
6. Use embossing powder, I used white here and use the heat gun for embossing.
7. Let it cool for 20 mins and then apply a thin coat of clear varnish and dry for 24 hours
8. Coasters are ready to use

Materials used:
  • MDF coasters
  • Embossing powder - White
  • Mama elephant Stamps - Cup of wishes (any stamp can be used)
  • Mini Misti Stamping tool
  • Heat gun
  • Versamark ink
  • Anti-static powder tool
  • Clear Varnish
  • Paint

Tips for Heat embossing:

1. Use of Misti: Some stamps do not stamp well and may require repeated stamping. Since we are using MDF here, to avoid errors while stamping its best to use Misti.

2. Use of anti-static powder tool: Embossing powders are sticky and tend to stick to the entire MDF. The powder prevents embossing powder from sticky all over the MDF and only to the stamped parts

3. Warming heat gun prior to use- embosses quickly. 

4. Embossing powder: If there are no colour or white powders available to you, you can stamp with colour ink and again stamp with versamark and use clear embossing powder

Must have embossing powders - gold, silver, clear - regular & gloss, white. For black use Versafine Black Onyx Ink and emboss with clear powder. 

I enjoyed making these tea coasters and hope you all try them out.

Shaker Card with Heat Embossing By Guest DT Zalak

Hello Friends,

I am Zalak and today, I have a project to share with you using Heat embossing, a very easy and popular technique and one of my favorite technique with shaker card (again very popular).

Let's check out my project.

So for my project I have used Altenew Peony Bouquet stamp and Fiskars stamp Good Times.

Stamped the flowers and heat embossed it with Ranger's Gold embossing powder on Bielo CS. To color the stamped image I used Zig clean brush markers, here I have colored only shaker part and left the rest without coloring. I have die cut the rectangle stitched from Lawn Fawn die to make shaker card window. For shaker elements I have used some star and cupcake sequins from Lawn Fawn.

I have 12 colors set of Zig clean brush markers so with this colors only I colored Altenew Peony Bouquet image. For one flower I have mixed red and yellow color to form orange color and once its dry I just gave some stroke with red color. I have used light blue to color my second flower and again give some stroke with dark blue. And the last small flower which is on top of right corner, I colored it with yellow and gave stroke with light green.
TIP: Bielo CS doesn't hold water for long time so I didn't used water. I have directly blended the colors. As these are water based markers so the tip of markers don't get damage. If you want the colors to be light the use Brustro watercolor paper and use water for blending, Brustro are watercolor paper so it holds the water and you can blend it very easily.
Some close up to see how I colored them,

To finish up my project I have adhered them on black CS.

I hope you liked my project and inspire you to make to work with informative techniques.

Above listed Materials are available at Rainbow Craftykari Store or you can pre-order.

Love and Regards,
