My New Love

I fell in love today ... with a new Stampin' Up product!!  I received my Pressed Clay this week along with the Buttons and Blossoms silicone molds.  Today I watched a few YouTube videos to learn a few tricks of the trade and then I started playing!  Not only can you make buttons and flower but you can flatten the clay and stamp onto it.  Stamp a butterfly, let it dry and cut it out!  Add color to the clay by kneading ink into it or coloring with markers after it dries for a more saturated look.  Air dry is all you need.  I made a bunch of white flowers and put them in a storage box.  That way any time I need a flower, I can just pick one out and color it with my markers, etc.  Google SU Pressed Clay and you will see a bunch of images as well as videos. 

I also used my Dress Form Framelit today.  I've had it for over a month and just never pulled it out.  But I love it too!  And I used one of my clay flowers - colored with Calypso Coral marker - to dress up the little dress.   I used SU Tea Time fabric (retired) to make the dress.  I've got a good friend who is celebrating her birthday this weekend and this card will be going to her.
