Clay and Stars

Last week lurking at the back of my drawer I spied a packet of Simply Pressed Clay. So I thought I would pull it out and have a play. Around that time Stampin' Up! also released a video of pressing stamps into the clay.

So guess what I did !  And Oh My it was lots of fun too. Some stamps worked better than others. I think I got carried away and ended up using all the packet...lol...now I need to order some more.

Here is one thing that I made and I am so happy with how it came out.

As you can see the clay star has some gold on it. I just used a Sponge Dauber and the Gold Encore Pad to highlight the pattern. I think it looks so cool.

Then I simply layered a star behind it using the Gold Sheet, and then stamped the I Love Lace stamp in the Gold Encore Pad onto Whisper White, and cut another larger star.

I used the Hearts & Stars Decorative Mask with the Gold Encore Pad and a Sponge Dauber on the Cherry Cobbler background.

The bundle of stars is  mounted using Dimensionals. I curled the Merry and Bright sentiment banner using my Bone Folder and mounted one side with 2 layers of Dimensionals and Tombow on the other so that the curl effect stays in shape.

I love how this card turned out, and I love even more how the stamping into the clay worked.

You may also notice the Hexagon Punch in the supplies I used below. I used that to punch  the ends of the sentiment banner. It is so quick and easy and you get perfect tails every time.

Here is what I used to create this card.

  2. Stunning Narelle, I'm loving the star stamps, dies and playing with my paper clay too. I'm thinking I may need to get some more of the clay soon too.
