Here's another project I made using the Simply Pressed Clay. Once the clay is dry it's soft like foam so it's very easy to thead a needle or wire through it. I made several flowers. 9 Flowers to fit my wrist which I would say is Medium. My daughter's wrists are tiny and needed about 7. After your flowers dry spritz them with water, emboss with your favorite embossing powder and string them together. Very easy! To see more Simply Pressed Clay projects scroll down and check out the video I posted yesterday.
I had to remove my video until the catalogue went live May 31st so now I can post it again.Yay!
I think this Simply Pressed Clay is going to be one of my favorite new products from the upcoming Stampin' Up catalogue. The simply pressed clay is lightweight and flexible. You can color it with reinkers, markers or paint them using an aqua painter. You can even emboss it. How cool is that? I put together a video of some of the flowers I made so far.
Yes Washi Tape frightens me. I've been staring at it since it arrived, not quite sure what to do with it. A few days ago my daughter made me part with my flip phone. I had to weigh my phone down with a frying pan to get it to charge so it was time...but still. Anyway, I figured if I can handle a real phone, I should be able to tackle my fear of Washi Tape. Note: the photo isn't taken with my new phone. I tried but that's just too much progress for one week. Maybe next time.
I'm lovin' all the new shapes we have now that Stampin' Up started carrying framelits. It's like a whole new world of punch art. The first thing I thought of when I saw the Happy Whale Clearlit die is that it looked like a pregnant belly. I know...that's what everyone was thinking right? And don't those leaves from the Secret Garden Framelits make the cutest shoes?
When I was pregnant with my daughter, my sister gave me a card with the sentiment "Enjoy that Beached Whale Feeling". I thought that sentiment would be perfect for this card until I saw the stickers from my This and That bundle.
I was chosen to be a display stamper for convention. I don't know any details yet but I'm soooooo excited. The entries had to be Three cards, two 3D items and one scrapbook page. These were the projects I submitted.
Here are the links to the posts where you can find the instructions for some of these projects
I miss this black satin ribbon. I usually don't keep my retired products in with my current stuff but I couldn't bring myself to pack it away. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for some pretty new ribbon in the next catty.
I had several people ask me how I made the Floral Framelit Lion into a card. I made this basket card the same way as I did the Lion and this will work with any of the Framelits. Cut Two of the framelit shapes that you're going to use for your card base and score the back one 1" along the top. If that doesn't make sense watch the video for this basket card.
I know this is a little late for Easter but you can make this basket and fill it with anything.
I wanted to apply to be a display stamper but thought I'd cheat and use the lion card I made for my Die Cut Shaped Cards Class using Stampin' Up's Floral Framelits. When I reread the rules before posting my link it said the cards had to be normal size. Crap. So I remade the lion card with no body and ended up liking him better than the original. Sometimes it pays not to cheat.
The lion's mane is cut with the Floral Framelits, The head is the 2-1/2" Circle punch, Cheeks; 1-1/4" Circle, Nose; Small Heart, Eyes;1/2" Circle, Mouth; 3/4" and 1" Circle Punches, Paws; Smallest Oval Framelit
Edit: I had several people ask me how to make this lion into a card. Cut two shapes for the card base and make a score line across the top of the back one. I used the same concept for the base of this Basket Card
My favorite color combo; pink and green or Regal Rose and Lucky Limeade to be exact. I used the Secret Garden Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies. The flower was embossed on Pink Pirouette then colored with Regal Rose ink using a blender pen. The flower centre is stamped on So Saffron and colored with More Mustard. I stamped the leaves with Lucky Limeade Ink on Whisper White then highlighted them with a white gel pen.
When I made this little gnome to go on one of the cards from my Shaped Cards Class I thought he'd be the perfect embellishment for a simple 3D project I was working on. I made a couple of these little houses for my sisters and filled them with seed packets.
The box is made using Stampin' Up's Fancy Favor and Perfect Pennants Dies. I used the 1" square and Postage Stamp punches for the window, the shrubs are made from the largest petal of the Blossoms Petals Builder Punch. I embossed the roof witht the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder.
