Scrapbook Inspiration Challenge : Stamping on other mediums

Hello. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I have been studying for some test I have to take for work, yuck! I did get one of them taken Saturday night and I passed, YAY! One more to go!
You may remember from last month, that I started co-hosting the Scrapbook Inspirations Challenges over at SCS. Well it’s that time again. Now don’t be too impressed. I made these layouts a few years back.  We would love to have you come over and join us.  You can check out all the Scrapbook Challenges over at SCS HERE.
The challenge this time is to stamp on a different medium than paper.  I have several samples to inspire you.  I love using my stamps on so much more than cards.  And it's fun creating my own embellishments for Scrapbook Layouts.
Stamping on Cork

I just love the cork paper and it is really easy to work with.  If you want a casual look, this is perfect.

Next up is clay.

Stamp on the clay and trim around with an exacto knife.  Then bake per manufacturer guidelines.

I didn't have matching brads so I decided to make tiny clay circles to substitute.

Layers of Color SALE!!

Good Morning.  Are any of you shopping this weekend??
Well then you will want to know about a fabulous sale over at Layers of Color Blog.  Hop on over and find out more about the SALE and an Operation Write Home Blog Hop!  OH, and you can also get a FREE digital image of the sentiment I used on my projects below, from Layers of Color.  It was beautifully designed by Nina Brackett - Crafting in Croatia. 
It reads "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord"  Ps 33:12
In a gesture to support our troops, 10% of all sales this 3-day weekend will be donated to Operation Write Home.  Laura over at Layers of Color is sooooo generous.

Here are a few projects I created using Layers of Color "Gothic Crosses".

I love patriotic holidays because it reminds us to take a moment from our hectic lives and remember those who have and do defend this great nation. They sacrifice so much so that we can be free. And we often take it for granted.

Technique : Stamping on Clay
I created this first Gothic Cross project using sculpey clay. I had lots of fun doing this. And I have to tell you, I am no expert. I'm just one of those gals who just does it. So when the sculpey stuck to my stamp, I tried spraying it with cooking oil. Worked perfectly! I'm sure there is a better way to do this, but hey, it worked for me.  So begin by softening your clay.  Roll it through a Pasta Maker to flatten.  Stamp your image in the clay.  Use and X-acto knife to trim it out.  Place on a baking sheet and follow package direction.

We are so blessed to live in such a wonderful country and need to continually pray for those who defend it and for God's protection.  We also need to pray for our leaders.

 I used a swirly from Layers of Colors "Nature Walk" on the background.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a fun and safe Memorial Day Weekend!
