Stamp Embossed Clay Charms

Here is a really cool tip… when cre­at­ing poly­mer clay charms use chip­board embell­ish­ments for tem­plates. This is exactly what I did when cre­at­ing these adorable dress charms for my nieces. I used the chip­board dress from the Maya Road Laun­dry Day mini chip­board set to cre­ate these two charms. All I did was roll out my poly­mer clay to the thick­ness I wanted, placed the mini chip­board dress on top of the clay then using a craft knife care­fully cut around the chip­board dress. How sim­ple is that!

And here are a few other cool tips… to get the but­ter­fly image onto the dresses I pressed the Maya Road Ornate But­ter­flies stamp set into the poly­mer clay. Stamps are a great way to emboss poly­mer clay. To add words to each dress I used my Impres­sArt metal stamps so remem­ber your metal stamps aren’t just for metal.  I used a sty­lus to cre­ate the hole for my jump ring then the dresses were ready for baking.

After I baked the dresses per the man­u­fac­tur­ers instruc­tions I cov­ered each one with gesso then painted them using Adiron­dack Acrylic Paint Dab­bers. Once the paint dried I applied Dia­mond Stick­les on top and rubbed it over the dress using my finger.

Hugs!
