I am LOVING the new SU Pressure Clay that you will be able to order after May 31st from the new SU 2013-14 Annual Catalog.
I free formed the white clay into a vase and stamped with the leaves from the "Just Believe" stamp set that will be retiring on June 3rd. I also used a stamp inside the card from the set. It is one of my all time favorite sets.
I found the SU silicone mat is great for free forming clay images. Just let it dry for awhile or put in freezer for about a half hour and then it pops right off so you can set the image aside to dry overnight. The finished image will actually bend and feel a little rubbery...Not breakable like clay.
I then colored the clay after drying (can do before it dries) with my Pear Pizzazz marker. I am thrilled about all the old In Colors coming back for a "Color Fresh" look! Attach clay images with sticky strip.
I sponged the bg with Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral inks.
The cute daisies were a gift from my very good friend and extremely talented stamper "Loll Thompson" :-)
The stems and leaves were made using Certainly Celery 1/8" taffeta (ret).
I did attach my 2 7/8" x 5 7/8" W White front to a heavier 6" x 6" scored PTI Premium White CS because of the bulky clay and flowers and mailed in a padded envelope to a very special friend.

This is amazing, Nancy! I'm glad to hear that the clay works so well. I'll be ordering some soon. Love the sponged background and the stamped and colored leaves on the vase. Loll's daisies are so, so pretty!

Double WOW! I have long admired Birgit's clay vases, accessories on her cards--now I can admire yours! I'm afraid I am coveting here: Loll's daisies, the new SU clay, and your talent. Wonderful multi-colored background, and love the inspired use of the ribbon for the stems and leaves. This card is frame-worthy.
