Hand Stamped Coaster Tiles

Hand Stamped Coaster Tiles

Stamped tile coasters are easy, once you know how.

What you need

Rubber stamps
Italian marble 4×4 tiles
Stazon or Hybrid Palette ink pads
Brilliance ink pads
Heat gun
cork or sticky felt rounds


Tile Stamping

Use 4 x 4 distressed looking tumbled tiles, Italian marble. You can get them at Home Depot or Lowes, 9 in a box for $6.00.

Wipe the tile off.

Using any stamp that pleases you, stamp the image using StazOn black or Hybrid Palette Noir ink. (Vintage sets, floral, or animals look the best to me.)

Heat set with your heat gun or let ink dry completely. (Actually, I’ve learned that letting them sit over night is best, but if you can’t, heat set them really well.)

Color the image in with Brilliance ink pads, blending as you like with Q-tips and your finger. You might want to blend some StazOn, Palette, or Brilliance color around the edges to make the tile look more antiqued.

Bake tiles at 350 for 20- 30mins. This renders them totally fade proof. You do not have to seal them.

If you’re going to use them as coasters, be sure to put little sticky felt rounds or cork squares on the bottom corners,

And you really need the Stazon stamp cleaner if you want to get this ink off your stamps!!

That’s it!! Have fun.



  1. I love this project, I just finished making the coasters and can’t wait to try them.

  2. Can I use fabric markers to color them in then just use my heat tool to set the image?

  3. this was an awesome idea

  4. I actually just completed a set of asia inspired tile coasters last week. I ended up using shiny ceramic tiles, sealing them and attaching cork to the entire back. I like this method a lot better and I think I’m going to have to make more using this idea. Thank you!!!

  5. This is such a wonderful idea. I have been searching for DIY ideas for hours! My male friend is moving into his first apartment and i didn’t want to insult him by making him a care package of stuff i thought he’d forget:) This is the perfect idea b/c i can make it relavent to him and i can really put some of me in it:) thank you

  6. Thats really cool!

  7. I have done this craft with smaller tiles and we turned them into magnets. Just use the thicker round magnets and hot glue them on. It’s a cute way to decorate your kitchen fridge!

  8. Exactly the instructions I was searching for. Will try making them asap.

  9. I used acrylic paints and permanent markers then sealed it with acrylic spray. Great Craft

  10. This is great! I can’t imagine that suction would happen, because the tile will be heavier! Just a thought. If it is a problem – shake a little salt on them before using them – the salt sits between the bottom of the glass and yourcoaster-walla no suction

  11. Great craft! We’re doing a fundraiser and this will help out alot.

  12. Great! Gorgeous!!

  13. I actually think I might be able to do this!

  14. All I was looking for to do it right. thanks.

  15. The suction is created when a little moisture gets onto the bottom of your cup. Iam pretty sure they would still suction as the tile is still non porus making the water pool.

  16. So so so cute! I have to make them, but one question: do these suction themselves to your glass like other coasters? Just making myself aware to prevent an accident! =)

  17. where do i bake them in a regular oven?

  18. Lovein’ them!

  19. I really like this craft,you did a great job.
