Simply Pressed Clay Flowers Featuring Stampin’ Up! by Connie Nichol
I have had so much fun with the Simply Pressed Clay and clay molds from Stampin’ Up! I just love being able to make these flowers and buttons as I need them in a variety of colours to match every project. Here’s all there is too it:
Gather up your supplies – Simply Pressed clay, molds and classic ink re-inkers.
The clay is white, soft and very light weight, and a dream to work with.
If you don’t want white flowers and buttons, mix in a few drops of reinker. Of course, the more ink you add, the more intense the colour will be. I slipped on a disposable glove so that my hands did not get all inky here.
Just massage the clay and reinker for a few minutes until it is smoothly mixed.
Then press into the mold and pop them back out. You can trim excess with some scissors if you have an ‘overhang’ from pressing in too much clay. Let dry.
That’s it. Lightweight, frugal and custom colour embellishments. I made a bunch in different colours and shades and used them to decorate this layout of a picture of a scanned slide from my childhood.
Supplies: All supplies by Stampin’ Up! – Soho Subway designer series paper, Morning Post alphabet stamps, ruffled stretch trim, Simply Pressed Clay and molds, re-inkers, chevron punch.
