The week sure went fast!!! I'm starting to being slightly more productive as the pressure is starting to build for the rest of the month. I have 4 classes next week (guess I should design some projects!!) and then Teacher's Convention is Feb 27th and 29th. I need to get cracking on paperwork, handouts, a Make-and-Takes and so on. I ALSO want to get a poster up at Sobeys regarding my classes and clubs. I have done that in past years and have made some great friends. Speaking of clubs - I am still accepting members to my 12-Month Club which begins this month. It is THE best way to get the SU items you want on a budget … and stamp with a GREAT group of ladies. Send me an e-mail if you are interested!
Right! Today I'm sharing another project from early January. I made this in bout 5 minutes from start to finish to showcase the Simply Pressed Clay and Mold for my Occasions Catalogue Launch. SO quick! I an a lyre of Whisper White through the new Hearts embossing folder and added it to a black mat. I then took my clay, pressed it into the mold and popped it out again. Nope - I didn't even wait for it to dry at ALL - just turned the mold over and twisted it out. Easy Peasy! I then grabbed my Stampin' Write Markers and coloured them. This part I would do differently next time. Because I was in a rush I coloured them, glued them to the card with my Tombow glue and was on my way. Apparently it takes time for the ink to dry … and mine didn't. I put the card in a transparent sleeve to protect it but the colours smudged, as you can see. The black got on the red.
Would I recommend the clay and molds? Yep - but not for every card. It is a little fiddlier than I like for mass producing cards but for a card that is a little more special I would use it. It really is fun once you get into it. Takes me back to my play-doh squishing days :)
That's it today. Have a stampy Saturday!
