Cycle Celebration Meets Simply Pressed Clay

2 Jul

By now, I’m sure you’re getting the idea that I love this Simply Pressed Clay!  So much, in fact, that I’m even going to use it on my Convention Swaps this year!  (List of things to do today:  55 Coastal Cabana Roses!)  Anyway, this card couldn’t be easier.  To do these little hearts, I just rolled out the clay and used a fondant heart cutter that I had and cut out the hearts.  They were then colored with my aqua painter and reinker.

Another Simply Pressed Clay Idea

I held my Simply Pressed Clay class this week and thought I should start sharing some of the projects we created.  Here’s the first one.  It’s a combination of 4 X 4 card with a matching envelope.clay button

  4. Add the chevron ribbon and button using the Liquid Multipurpose Glue.
  5. To create the envelope, seal the envelope then use the cutter to cut off 1-3/4”.

  7. Decorate as shown.


Playing With Simply Pressed Clay

24 Jun

I’ve been spending a lot of time playing with the new Simply Pressed Clay. It’s really easy to use once you figure out all of the little tips and tricks. I’ll be sharing those in the days to come. Meanwhile, I wanted to share a card I created by actually stamping into the clay and then letting it dry. Of course, the rose is from Stampin’ Up!s Simply Pressed Molds. I did dye the clay with the Blushing Bride ink refill before I molded it.
