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!
