Pressed Clay



  • Stamp Sets:  Summer Silhouettes, Banner Greetings, Mixed Bunch
  • Paper:  Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler
  • Ink:  Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight
  • Accessories:  Simply Pressed Clay, Flower Molds, Punches, Aqua Painter, crystal effects

The simply pressed clay is fun to play with.  So I made several white flowers.  I looked at a few vidoes on how others were coloring them and like the idea of direct to stamp pad and then blending the color with an aqua painter.  I then applied crystal effects to make the flowers shine. I cased this card from splitcoaststampers here.

Thanks for looking.

DSP (from MDS) Layering



  • Stamps:  Label Love
  • Cardstock:  MDS Floral District DSP, MDS Summer Smooches DSP, Tangerine Tango, Lucky Limeade
  • Ink:  Tangerine Tango
  • Accessories:  Artisan Label Punch, MDS Kisses Punch, electric cutter

I saw a card on the demo Stampin’ Up! website from Paula Reid here who cased her card from Mary Fish. I wanted to try out my new Epson printer for how well it would print the digital designer series paper.  I think it did a good job.  I love the label love punch but wanted to layer it much you can do with framelits so I used my electric cutter and the Kisses digital punch from MDS.  I love being able to use the digital files to make frames for all the punches.

Thanks for looking.
