Stamped Clay Button

With so many Stampin' Up! buttons to choose from it was hard to want to try the Simply Pressed button moulds. As usual, inspiration came from my youngest child and muse.

Her idea was to draw or paint designs on a clay button. (Being a stamper, well obviously I used a stamp.)



Then, I got inspired to add a mechanism to my design! And, to make a masculine version!

By the way, that foil card stock is in the new Holiday Catty. Check out the link in the left margin tomorrow.
-press the clay into the mould and place it in the freezer
-when it's hardened, pop out the button and air-dry overnight
-cut all the labels using Big Shot and Chalk Talk framelits
-stamp the sentiments and the clay button
-assemble the pieces on a foam mat and pierce holes for the button and brad
-punch a 1/8 in. circle in the black label over the pierced hole

-punch 1/8 in. circles in the silver foil piece over the pierced holes
-position the button over the holes and thread 2 short lengths of ribbon through the holes
-secure the ribbon with glue dots and trim the ends
-secure the sentiments labels with a brad and adhere them to the foil circle
-adhere the whole mechanism to the stamped card front
