The winner for the hostess benefits using Hostess Code R9PZ437Y is Sandy B.  Sandy, I’ve sent you an e-mail asking for your wish list.

Hostess Code for August 16 – 31 August 2013 is:  USQ9UBXX

It’s been fun playing the Online Mystery Hostess Workshops.  Let’s do it again for August – this one ends on 31 August.  So that means if you place an online order (min $25), you name is entered into a drawing for the hostess benefits.  For every $25 you spend, your name is entered into the drawing so if you spend $50, you get two chances and so on.   And if you spend $50, you also get the free tutorial below!  But don’t forget if you are spending $150, don’t enter the hostess code because you are entitled for the hostess benefits based on that order.

If you see my name listed as a hostess, it’s because I have not selected a winner as yet!

Simply Pressed Clay & Buttons

I just got in my clay and molds – don’t know why I waited so long!  I’ll have a couple of cards for you this week featuring the flowers and buttons.  Enjoy the movie – Bonnie is so funny!

Simply Pressed Clay is white molding clay. There are several different options for you to add color and create custom embellishments. You can add color by kneading ink into it (be sure to wear gloves.) After it is dry you can color it with markers, spray it with reinker using a Stampin’ Spritzer, or you can add some shimmer by spraying it with Smooch Spritz. When using the Stampin’ Spritzer, please note the depending on how much ink to water/alcohol you have will determine the hue of the color. For stronger, bolder colors use more reinker, and for softer, subtler colors use less reinker.

The clay embellishments can air dry and can be handled delicately within five minutes. The embellishment will be fully dry in thirty minutes. You can pop them into the freezer to speed up drying but please don’t put in oven; this will melt your molds.

To use the molds press a small amount of clay into the desired shape. For the more delicate designs allow the clay to dry for a few minutes before trying to remove the embellishment. You can create some fun accessories by taking advantage of the pliability of the clay before it’s dry by poking a hole in the top to create a charm.
