Coaster Photo Frame

Happy Thursday!  It's time for another inspiration challenge over at Stampin' Celebration!  Here is a photo of Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #38:

 Ok, so I guess most normal people think of "love" when they see black and red, right?  I have to admit, when I see black and red I think Georgia Bulldogs!!!  LOL!  I guess that's what happens when you spend 4 college years in Athens rooting for the DAWGS!  :)   But, I ended up going with the "love" theme anyway for this week's creation!  Here it is:

I made this little photo frame for my hubby out of three coasters.  I didn't have any of the Jumbo Eyelets to attach them (like I've done in the past) so I used our Striped Grosgrain Ribbon on the back and then covered it with cardstock.  I cut the cardstock to 4 x 4 and used our Corner Rounder - it matched the coasters perfectly!  I used my new Circle Circus Stamp Set to match the little circle cookies in the bottom right hand side of the inspiration photo.  I thought the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and Glimmer Brads worked great with this as well!  I've made these with just two coasters before and they're just as cute - they make fun little gifts!

Supplies Used:
Paper:  Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
Stamps:  Tiny Tags, Circle Circus, Artistic Etchings (on the white circle), Seasonal Sentiments (from Holiday Mini), Bliss (FREE Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set)
Ink:  Basic Black and Whisper White Craft Ink
Punches:  Jewelry Tag and  1 3/8" Circle
Ribbon:  Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon and Striped Grosgrain Ribbon
Other:  Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Glimmer Brads (Brights Collection)

Here are a couple of close up photos:

This is the first time I used my Circle Circus and Tiny Tags Stamp Sets.  I just love those little tags you can make with the Jewelry Tag Punch!  I can't wait to use the Tiny Tags Stamp Set to make some more inserts for my Simply Adorned Necklace.  Soooo cute!

Here are the rest of the stamps that come in the Tiny Tags Stamp Set:

Isn't this a fun stamp set? So much you can do with it - cards, gift tags, jewelry, scrapbook embellishments....

I love your valentine frame. I have never heard of using coasters so I'm glad I popped in and had a chance to see it. I love the picture of your husband and you too.
