Simply Pressed Clay Video and Tip List



Today's post is simple!
A video and a Tip List for Stampin' Up!'s Simply Pressed Clay
I'd love for you to relax and watch the Stampin' Up! Video Featuring  

Simply Pressed Clay and the Buttons and Blossoms Molds! 


You won't believe how simple these are to make.  Even if you are not a stamper or a card maker....You will find a use for these cute little flowers or buttons.  Everyone from young to old can make these fun little baubles to accent cards, journals, boxes, frames and more!

Just the ease of having everything you need to always have a coordinating embellishment....
Yep, I was skeptical.   Now I'm a believer!

Check out my post using the clay flowers on a card HERE


Here is a TIP LIST  from the video (Just in case you want to print it out! ;-)
  • Use a reinker to add colors that will be sure to coordinate with your paper and ink (rubber gloves might be in order to save your hands) Vary amounts to vary depth of color.
  • If you add LOTS of color or have any trouble releasing them from the molds... pop molds into the freezer for 20ish minutes before you take the clay out.  It will come out really easy when cold.  Button molds work best like this.
  • You can leave the pieces white and color them after they are dry.  Use markers, blender pens, spritzers and reinkers, sponge daubers
  • DO NOT bake the clay!  It air dries.  Dry time varies on temp and humidity. Dry sunny air can speed dry them.
  • You can pierce holes in the flowers while wet.  When dry they can easily be added as a charm.
  • Pieces dry and become very light weight. They won't add much weight to your cards..good to know when mailing.
  • You can use the clay with out the molds.  Just flatten out a shape and STAMP! A great way to accent a sentiment, or special image. 
  • Check out page 167 in your 2013-2014 Stampin' Up! Catalog
