Goodbye to Beautiful Birthday and Distressed Dots…Hello Simply Pressed Clay!

It’s getting close to retirement time for the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Birthday and Distressed Dots stamps, but we get to say “hello” to a fantastic new embellishment, Simply Pressed Clay.  This stuff is so cool, you can add ink to dye it, use the new Buttons & Blossoms molds to shape it or press a stamp into the clay to create a one-of-a-kind embellishment!  Just knead the ink in, press it into the mold or shape that you want, pop it into the freezer for about 20 minutes, then pop the clay out of the mold and let it dry completely.  I used the clay and a little bit of Pool Party ink to create the three flowers on my card.

My card design was inspired by the Mojo Monday 291 Sketch.
