Artist Trading Cards using Magic Transfer Paper

I wanted to share a few ATC’s I made. I have been experimenting with Magic Transfer Paper to push its limits and see what else I can transfer on besides polymer clay and I am pleasantly surprised. I was able to print on cotton fabric and transparencies for a super cool look. Kira is doing some experiments with transferring on paper that are working out really well too. We will be putting together a video to show you what we have found out, so stay tuned for that.

Handmade Holiday Ornaments

We have started some fun swaps over in the community and one of them is to create a holiday ornament. So I decided to work on my handmade ornament over the weekend. I had alot of fun making it and I love how it came out. Its really lightweight even though it doesn’t look it. I hope whoever gets it really enjoys it. Want to be a part of this fun swap, its free to join us and the community.

I made this using a paper mache star base. I added the embellishment, used some paint mists and a polymer clay flower I made with a metal center. Total mixed media!

I have added this to the following linky parties, come join us!

I made this fun duct tape wallet rock on...

My niece has her sweet 16 birthday coming up in 5 days and at that age all kids want is money. My sister already bought her a car so she is going to need gas so I thought why not make her a wallet and put money and a gas card in it for a gift, I'm throwing in a Game Stop card too. I don't like to just give her money, I always liked to have presents to open and get excited about. So this is the perfect solution. On Tuesday Shmoozeday on Nov. 6th I will be demoing how to make one for yourself or to give as a gift. I hope you will join me at

I have added this to several linky parties, come check them out.

My artwork created with the digital art kit

I am having so much fun creating with this months kit
This is one of my pieces that is in the works. Its a wall hanging and all together it cost around $3.00 to make. Super easy and super inexpensive. I used a wall plaque I found at the dollar store that was meant as a Halloween decoration and turned it into a piece of art. This is still a work in progress and I will share more photos when its complete.

A new rubber stamp I fell in love with

I have had this stamp for a few months but hadn't had the chance to try it out. I finally got the chance and fell in love with it. Look at the awesome detail in polymer clay. Polymer clay requires a deeply etched stamp to get a nice impression and this stamp hit the mark. I have all kinds of ideas and started one project already with it. I will share that when I can.

Some more handmade buttons

Here is another set of handmade buttons I made using polymer clay. The smaller ones are about an inch and the 2 larger ones are 1 1/2 inch across. They are lightweight and durable.

I love to make buttons out of polymer clay

I love to create buttons using polymer clay, its great to be able to make buttons to go with any outfit or project. You can make them out of millefiori canes, stamps, molds or anything you want. Here are a few pics of some of my handmade buttons.  Eight buttons come in this set. I have way too many things I have made its time to find a good home for these.They are all about 1 inch across.
