I can’t say enough about this awesome stamp set High Tide and this is the last of the projects from my OnStage Pheonix presentation. It’s available to customers on January 4th, 2017 along with many other fabulous things from Stampin’ UP!. because they are always outdoing themselves. I can’t keep up with their awesomeness 🙂
I would love to be your Demonstrator OR better yet, join my awesome team of Demonstrators.
This project is actually simple. I purchased Ceramic Bisque Tiles, I’ve ordered mine from Blick Art Supplies www.dickblick.com. They are 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″. I received a bulk discount so the tiles were only $.49 and you only have to purchase 12 to get that discount. If there isn’t a Blick Art Supply Store in your area, they ship!
These coasters will be available as a CLASS in January for locals to my area.
- Clean your tile, I used a little rubbing alcohol to clean off any surface mess. Let dry.
- Ink your stamp with Archival Ink – I used Basic Archival Grey and I love it!!!
- This set has multiple stamps so layer the stamps according to your set.
- Let dry…very important. I let them cure for days before sealing them.
- Seal with Mod Podge first, four layers and allow to dry overnight.
- Take a box and put wooden skewers on the bottom, lay the tiles on the skewers before sealing with the spray.
- Spray with a clear matte coat. Let dry for an hour and spray again. Be sure to let dry again and then spray the bottom.
- Why did I seal first with Mod Podge first? Well…I like the slight texture that I get from the brush strokes.
- Add cork circles with a hot glue gun OR use the stick on type. You can cover the entire bottom with cork OR just use the circles.

Hi love this idea. Having a problem finding this exact color paint. Where did u purchase this?
I used an ink pad from Stampin’ UP! It was an archival grey, they don’t stock it now. Try looking for another Archieval Ink Pad in a search online. Gina K, Tim Holtz or Versafine.
Can you use the high gloss tiles? I found some really cheap ones at Lowes.
You could try stamping with Stazon and see if it works on one tile. Mine were bisque and not gloss.
My drinking glasses and coffee cups stick to the tile coasters. Why?
Did you glaze them?
Yes, first I used Modge Podge and then a spray glaze.
Mine were bisque from DickBlick
Did you paint the tiles after you cleaned them, i see a an of paint there??
I stamped them.
The can of paint is the clear sealer.
These are so nice. I’m having a small wedding and plan to make a set for the ten couples who are attending. TFS.
Wonderful and you are welcome. They would make a great gift. Dickblick.com for the tiles and I purchased the cork backings on Amazon and they have a sticky side! Congratulations on your wedding.
Thank you so much for sharing. My girls have been wanting a craft other then cards. This will be perfect for them… Thank you for the tutorial… Greatly appreciated….
I’m so happy to hear that your girls love crafting!
I’m going to try this. Is the cord you used to tie them together still available? If so, what is it called? Thanks!
The cord isn’t available…it’s retired. I can show you what’s available and hints on what you can use. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I made some too! Thanks for sharing. I mentioned you and your blog when I posted as well. CAn’t wait to try some other stamps and do some coloring too. I found the perfect tiles at our recycle store for only 10 cents each!
That’s awesome Kate!!! You’re so kind to mention me, thank you so very much!
Can you use the basic white kitchen tiles, or do you need a special type, would love to make some as presents.
I would try one to see if it worked. Mine are flat bisque and not shiny. They make great presents and I have used many different stamps on them.
I love them. Have you used color ink on them? Great gifts. I will be making some.
I have stamped them in black and colored with alcohol markers. Copic, Sharpies or Spectrum Noir’s would work.
These are just beautiful. Thanks for the tutorial. I can’t wait to make them.
You are welcome and thanks for leaving a comment Patti. I use mine every day!
Hi Carole what a great project can you tell me if the coasters after being sprayed with the Painters Touch are totally heat proof …or are they nit meant for really hot drinks
Thanks so much! I’ve used them for hot and cold drinks–no problem.
Hi Carole, I just saw your post. I want to make these. Just a question though. After you stamped the images, did you let them dry, then add the modge podge layers? I love this new stamp set. Can’t wait to make these. Thanks Joan P, from Halifax Nova Scotia, Canada
I did let them dry first and the next batch I did, I just sprayed them with a matte finish. I ordered the adhesive cork bottoms from Amazon.
These are so great! I’m going to get the shiny tiles for these. All i have are the ruff tumbled tiles.
Thank you. These are matte tiles, not shiny.
Thank you so much for sharing this information. I really enjoyed your presentation in Phoenix and I hope to make some coasters now, with your’s as my inspiration. Everything you showed in Phoenix made me love this stamp set. You have a lot of talent!
Thank you so much!!! I’m going to make a few for Christmas so stay posted and share yours!
