Have you got a chance to look at the new catalogue yet? I’m sure excited about a lot of new stamp sets and products! One of the new products is the “Simply Pressed Clay”, which is a white molding clay to create your own embellishments. You can add color by kneading ink from re-inker into the clay or coloring with markers after it dries. There’s two silicon molds that you can buy as a pack: 1 with 3 flowers and 1 with 3 buttons. They are really easy to use and really cool!!!
This is one of the card that we made at my New Catalogue Kick-Off event. I colored a little amount of the clay with Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Island Indigo. You really don’t need a lot to make many flowers! I recommend that you use gloves when kneading the color into the clay or put it in a sandwich bag, unless you don’t mind having your fingers different colors!
To unmold your buttons and flowers more easily, you can put the clay into the mold and put in the freezer for about half an hour. Your flowers and buttons will be very easy to unmold after and won’t lose the shape. Let dry for about 12-24 hours before using on your project. After it’s dry, you can also color your flowers with markers. (I colored the yellow flower center with the marker.) On this card, I also used the new Quatrefancy Special Designer Series paper.
