SAF 2013: Rolled Dough Designs

I picked up some Delight Paper Clay after going out for dinner last night to try today's technique using this product.  It is fast drying and super light which makes it perfect for cards.  I was going to use my Damask Snowflake die to make an ornament but went in a totally different direction.
I used the lower case alpha dies to die cut an 'x' for my nephew, Xavier.  I stamped it with the herringbone pattern from the Mat Stack collection 
I added it to a Mat Stack stamped die cut using Fresh Turquoise ink and an Enchanted Evening mat.  I put on some foam dots adhered behind before adhering it to a Staples grey card stock base that I impressed with the Herringbone impression plate.  Love the texture that adds!         
I stamped an envelope with some trucks and cards from a baby boy Fiskars set - he just adores any mode of transport whether it be trains, trucks, vans .... you name it, he loves it! :-)     

My next card up is a birthday card using some more paper clay.  For this one, I die cut a Notched Flower which I stamped with the BB: Newsprint stamps in French Lavender Fresh ink.
I matted a piece of PTI patterned paper (a purple graph background) to my Staples grey card base and added a Double Ended Banner die cut in Smokey Shadow.
I added a Wonderful Words: Birthday die cut using cork and stamped a coordinating envelope with Modern Wood Mats - such a stylish set!!

I also made a card for my cousin - she loves pastel colours so I went with a muted hues:
I used a piece of Studio Calico's Snippets 6x6 paper pad - love those polka dots!  I adhered that to my card base and then added some silver twine and a woodgrain embossed Beautiful Blooms II die cut in Aqua Mist.  I added my ubiquitous foam dots to the die cut before adding the Postmarks stamped 'k' to the front.
