This is one of the make and takes from my open house on Saturday. I am in love with the Gingham Garden Suite in the new catalog. I used the Designer Series Paper with red card stock. Even though that is not one of the listed colors in the package of paper it worked because I used the prints that only have Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo on them. The flower is made from the three sized scallop circle punches. They are cut in between the petals and curled slightly with the edge of the bone folder. The yellow flower in the middle is the new Simply Pressed Clay which I colored with re-inker and pre-made before the open house so that they would be dry and ready to attach. An easy way to color the clay is to put some of it in a plastic storage bag and knead in the color. It does stick a little to the bag. Since this was such a light color I actually put a little re-inker in the middle of the clay I was coloring and gently folded it over with my bare hands and continued doing this until it was mixed. My fingers were a little yellow but I seem to have ink on my hands most of the time anyway. The clay is not hard like a button is when it dries so it will mail easily but is sturdy enough to hold up and keep it’s shape. I also used the new Gingham Garden Washi Tape which I love and it was a big hit with my stampers. The sentiment is from the hostess set Banner Greetings.
