Best Wishes (CASE Study)

I've been reading a lot about MoldMuse's Etsy shop on a bunch of crafting blogs recently, and decided to order 2 molds. I got them a few weeks ago, but haven't used them until last night. They were so easy to use! I'm a lover of polymer clay, and although I don't mention it on the blog, I love sculpting, as well as making custom beads and pendants for jewelry. (You can see one of my pendants here, at what I think is the only mention of clay in my whole blog!)

These molds just changed my life.

My gosh, I made all of these beautiful embellishments in about 15 minutes (plus baking time, of course). I kept most of them plain except for the one in the bottom-right corner of this picture, which I flecked with silver leafing:

And the small purple-y teal one in this photo right above the mold:
Today I was excited to use one of my new clay flowers on a card for this week's CASE Study challenge. Here's the finished card:


Nice and simple, to let the flower be the spotlight!

Jennifer, I was thinking about ordering some of those molds, but the blog I read talked about using resin and ICE resin to make the flowers. I didn't think I wanted to get into that. So these were made of polymer clay? They came out beautiful! Now I will have to give these a try too!

Thanks for sharing!!!

Very cool, Jennifer. Love the colors of your flowers. I went to check out those molds too, just haven't bought any yet. I sure my kids would love to help me out with a project like that :) Lovely card too by the way.

I love the flowers you made out of polymer clay! I visited the site and I just might order me some molds! I haven't worked with the clay before, but your embellishments came out soooo beautifully, you make me want to try it!
