Whenever I look at this card I keep thinking of those lyrics “it’s gonna be a bright, bright, sunshiney day”. Anybody else get that?
Regular readers will know that I’m loving the Simply Pressed Clay we have now. But having made so many Buttons & Blossoms I was starting to look around at what else I could make. There are other clay moulds out there in the craft shops but they can be a bit difficult to find, not everyone stocks them. A little easier to find (at least round here), is a Lakeland shop. Now you may be thinking that Lakeland don’t carry a huge range of craft items and that’s true, but they do carry cake decorating equipment and I found that their silicone icing moulds work perfectly with the clay. They are a bit more expensive though – around £7.99 for one mould versus £7.25 for our set of two SU! Buttons & Blossoms moulds (131272).
I used the Small Daisies silicone icing mould to make the flowers on this card.
The card base is an A6 landscape of Daffodil Delight. After stamping the sentiment from the Feel Goods set (W131916 or C129684) with Black Stazon onto a mat of Whisper White card, the lower half was run through the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder (116824) and the centres of the flowers coloured with the Daffodil Delight marker. This was matted onto Basic Black card and both layers were wrapped with Daffodil Delight Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (126872). A bow of the same ribbon was added with a Mini Glue Dot. The daisies were made with a centre of Simply Pressed Clay (130685) coloured with Daffodil Delight ink refill and the petals from plain white clay straight from the bag. After leaving them to air dry, they were adhered to the front of the card with Multipurpose glue.
The Whisper White insert was embossed and coloured along one side as for the card front and the sentiment from Bring on the Cake set (W128490 or C121958) was stamped in Black Stazon.
I’m currently working on a Pressed Clay online video class, so I hope to have that to share with you soon.
