My daughter recently did her first communion, and here’s the card I made for her. I used the Lattice Bigz die to cut the cross. This beautiful die will soon be discontinued so if you like it, get it now! The same goes for the Framed Tulips embossing folder, which created the borders of the card. To order it click here!
The rose is made with the Simply Pressed Clay and the Simply Pressed Clay molds. I colored the rose with “Blushing Bride” ink and the Blender pen. So easy! You can have an embellishment flower in any color! In the background, I sponged Daffodil Delight ink to make the White circle “pop out”. The little leaves are made with the Bird Builder punch.

Did you know that if you add Crystal Effect on your dried clay flowers, they become really shiny and they will look like they are made of ceramic or plastic! (but without the weight!) For this card, I made the flowers with white Simply Pressed Clay and colored them after with markers. (Use the blender pen to acheive some nuances in color.) Then I added a layer of Crystal Effect and let them dry. To make the leaves, I used the Elegant Butterfly punch and cut off the larger wings. I also used the Bitty Butterfly punch for the small leaves. (See picture below for the “trick” how to cut them.)
Here’s how to make the little leaves using the Butterfly punch! Cut the top wings off…

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.
