Oh my goodness, this is so lovely. I love stamping on clay!
Congratulations CG. Be sure to email me your mailing address so Stampendous can get your stamp set off in the mail to you!

Today's project is another that I made for CHA. If you haven't tried stamping into Deep Impression Embossing Powder yet, you HAVE to try it! Fun technique! 



Supplies Used:

Instructions:
  1. Paint chipboard tag with acrylic paint and watercolor pencils. 
  2. Coat entire surface on tag with Versamark and cover with Deep Impression Embossing Powder. Heat with heat gun until melted. Repeat until you have 4-6 layers of Deep Impression Embossing Powder on the tag. optional: sprinkle a bit of Shabby White Embossing Powder into the last layer of Embossing Powder. You can also sprinkle in glitter or mica powders at this point. 
  3. Ink up the Cling Saint Nick stamp with black ink. Reheat tag. While the Deep Impression Embossing Powder is still melted, press stamp down into the embossing powder. Let sit for approximately 15-30 seconds. 
  4. Carefully lift stamp from tag leaving an impression of the stamp into the Deep Impression Embossing Powder. 
  5. Embellish with ribbon/twine. 
This week I'm giving away a Stampendous Jumbo or Clear set of your choice! To be elegible to win leave me a comment in this post. We'd love to have you follow Stampendous on Facebook or their blog! I'll pull a winner next Saturday. Good luck!

Glad to hear that you fared Irene well. I saw one of your gorgeous cards in person in Anaheim yesterday- it was a stamped with daisies and looks like it had a base that you might have cut with wild card. I flipped it over -and said "hey-I know her"! :-)
