Floral Monogram Pendants



I just love creating custom orders for people.   These two floral monogram pendants are on their way to their new homes.   The Makin's Professional® Ultimate Clay Extruder® and Makin's® Floral Clay Cutter set make recreating these pendants for people a snap!   If you'd like a custom floral monogram for yourself, you can order them here at my Etsy shop - CindiMcGeeDesigns

Always Be Thankful Etched Slate Sign


Materials:

etchall® Creme
etchall® Stencil ComboPak 
etchall® Pick Tool
etchall® Squeegee
Slate sign
Electronic die cutting machine, or die cuts, or stencils
CreateAlong.com Hot Fix Cabochons in autumn colors 
Beacon 3-in-1™ Adhesive 


Instructions:

Determine appropriate size, and create text & image you wish to etch.  I created mine using picmonkey.com.   Use electronic die cutting machine to cut images from etchmask®. 

Use pick tool to remove lettering and wreaths - I used the negative space as a stencil. 

Place transfer paper from Stencil ComboPak over the images.  Press to adhere all the pieces to the transfer paper.  Using transfer paper ensures you get each tiny little element of the design. 

Remove the backing from the etchmask®. Place the image onto the clean, dry slate and press to adhere


Apply a thick coat of etchall® Creme.  Let set 15 minutes. 

etchall® is re-usable! Return cream to the bottle for later use. 






Wash slate and remove etchmask®.  Let dry. 


Add cabochons to enhance the twig wreath.  These are actually hot fix cabochons, but I added a tiny touch of 3-in-1 adhesive to the back to ensure they bonded correctly with the slate.
