Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my September Bella blog post!
Today I am going to show you how you can embellish your notebook/planner/album with hand-made polymer clay flowers made from Makin's air dry polymer clay with die cutting, dry embossing and stamping. Seams a lot of work? Not really. It's just a few very simple steps and you can do it in no time.
Makin's Clay- White, red
Sizzix die- Tattered flowers
Cuttlebug embossing folder- Flowers
Stamp- Rubber Dance
Ink- Ranger black permanent
Paint- ESF Ann Butler's Iridescents Sheer Copper
Bling- craft shop
Step by step instructions:
1.Mix white Makin's air dry polymer clay with just a small dot of Makin's red clay. You can add more red if the color is too light , so just add red clay a bit after bit. Roll the mixed clay with Makin's Clay machine into #3 setting. This is a setting that fits the die cut devices. Use Sizzix die to die cut your flowers and let them air dry just a bit.
2.Use permanent black ink and small script stamp from Rubber Dance stamp company and stamp over the almost dry die cut clay flowers.
3. Use embossing folder and dry emboss your dry stamped clay flowers.
4. Arrange your flowers over the blank note-book in your desired flower cluster. Add flower centers and a few shiny leaves.Glue them to the notebook with good adhesive and enjoy!
