Money box

My two little Grandsons are at an age when people will hand them money for their 'money box' but they didn't actually have one. So I bought two tins and made their names using white clay
and  Katy Sue alphabet moulds.
Needless to say when I popped a few coins in their they were very happy!

More clay embellishments

I came across a set of punch moulds yesterday in TK Max in the cake making section.
I was so excited to see how these would work with my clay.
As you can see above, perfectly!!
I will spray the snowflakes with sparkle spray before I use on my card.
The numbers and stars I will colour to suit the card I am making using my promarkers.
The roses might or might not be coloured.

Here is a card I used some snowflakes on

Silicone moulds

I picked up some very cheap silicone moulds at Discount Stores and wasn't sure if they would work with my clay but they did. I have already used some of the little bows on my cards.
The wording is from a Katy Sue Mould, was a bit fiddly but worth the effort.

Here is one of the cards  where I used the clay stars and roses.

Christening rose

I made this little Christening Table card to hold information about a baby's Christening dates and godparents for a friend and finished it off with one of my little clay roses and leaves.
Very pleased with the look it gave.
Need to make more flowers though as my clay has been neglected.
But I did get some new moulds for letters and numbers so watch this space.

Air-dry clay roses!

I recently treated myself to this set of fmm cutters and vein mats.

I also purchased some white clay, blue clay and green clay.
And this is what I came up with.
My first first clay roses and leaves in pink
I mixed some red distress ink into white clay until I was happy with the colour.
Each one looks a bit different as with practice I was getting the hang of it better lol.

My next batch I mixed some blue clay into the white but used a wee bit too much, hence the deep blue colour lol. Again I couldn't resist using the left overs, mixed with some more white clay to make blue leaves.

Here is a close up of the veins on the leaves and the large rose.

And here is how I used some of those blue flowers!

I will post a finished project with these so you can see how they look on a card.

Silver bells

Back with yet another wallet but this time made with mirri card and embossed with a rose embossing folder. The flower has been coloured with a blue ink pad and some white stamens to finish off.
