Well I spent all evening yesterday playing with my new stash of goodies from the up coming NEW catalogue. I can pretty much guarantee you will LOVE it... Mine's already looking a little worn from the constant use!
The first thing I am going to tell you about is the Simply Pressed Clay! Yup - it is A-Mazing. When it is dry it is light as a feather. You can shape it or use the Simply Pressed Buttons and Blossoms Moulds that will also appear in the new catalogue.
It can be coloured in so many ways - it is SO flexible.
You can add re-inkers to dye the clay, you can press it on an ink pad, you can colour it with Blender Pens, Aqua Painters or your Stampin' Write Markers!
You can colour two pieces of clay and mix them together for a marbled effect.
You can moisten it when it has dried and dip it in embossing powder - heat it and get a shiny finish.
You can mix in Dazzling Diamonds to get a glittery finish.
You can coat it in Crystal Effects to give it a hard shiny coating.
You can cut it with scissors or a knife when dry... I could go on! But for now I'll just show you a picture or two!
The top two images are of flowers made using the marbling technique - the one on your right has been coated with Crystal Effects...
The bright pink flower has been coloured with Melon Mambo Re-Inker then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
The red and white flower was gently rolled on an ink pad to just pick up the colour on the edges.
The bottom picture shows the 3 sizes of flowers made by the mould.
This card shows how fabulous the Blossoms look when stuck on a card - you can use Glue Dots, Tombo, Dimensionals or Sticky Strip to stick them on. I'm sure you recognise the sentiment from Bring On The Cake - but the border stamp is brand spanking new and comes as part of the Mosaic Madness set.
How luscious is that all shiny with Crystal Effects? Just remember if you don't want inky fingers get yourself some polythene gloves like the ones in the petrol station... the clay tends to stick to surgical/latex gloves.
Hope you like all the bits I've shown you today - I'll be back tomorrow with some more!
