Playing with Clay

Hi there Ladies,
This month I thought I try something a little different with the Couture Creations Super Plush Embossing Folder, so I am having a little play with clay.


Here we go





Roll out some clay (air dry or over dry both work well) thinly and large enough to fit the folder, trim off top edge to make it straight, dust both sides of your Super Plush Folder with a little power, will help clay not to stick, place clay in folder and using a rolling pin roll over Folder firmly a couple of times, then carefully lift out.



Using the Couture Creations Precision Craft Knife and a ruler trim of excess clay, then cut clay into1"x1" squares, place aside to air dry, or pop in the over using directions on clay packaging,


Create an open circle using 2 of the Couture Creations Circle Nesting Dies, pop them together through your machine making a circle with a hole, emboss circle using Couture Creations Sweet Dreams Only one, run some glue over embossed areas and dust with glitter.

Cutting a strip of cardstock at 3x10" emboss along one edge using the Only One Folder, glue and glitter.


Once your clay cubes are dry, cover them completely with paint, let dry, use a hard surface ink to highlight the embossed pattern.



Add a little bling with Couture Creations Adhesive Gem Stone.

Arrange all elements to suit, Title, Chipboard etc. Adhere with Couture Creations Double Sided tape.
