Hello and Welcome to my Blog ~ I love art of all kinds. Two of my favorites are polymer clay and paper art. I have shops on Etsy that feature both of my passions. I also love writing my blog and finding artists that have a passion for their craft and feature them. I hope your day is filled with sunshine, laughter and loads of creativity.

My Polymer Clay Greeting Cards

I always loved creating cards and here are a few
that I incorporated with pol
ymer clay.


I thought these butterfly designs were pretty cute and using pearl-X really makes them pop.

I used turquoise card stock for t
he card, then cut a circle out of heavy textured paper and topped it with purple mulberry. I love all the textures and layers this card has. The butterfly is resting on pink polymer with faint swirls of purple and I used Pearl-X to give the wings a luminous look.

I am always amazed at how pliable the flat pieces of polymer clay are after they are cured. It is so easy to cut them if you are not quite satisfied with the outcome.


I created this card last year for a friend of mine who's birthday is on Halloween. She always wanted a witch's hat pendent and I made this one for her and attached it to her birthday card.

She was so happy to receive this gift and I loved making it for her.


I created this purple pendant for this card.  The lace frame was created using a punch.  



I decided to create two butterflys for this card. I have a lace corner cutter that I used and it really makes this card appear quite delicate. The butterflys are resting on turquoise clay and the embellishments have all been brushed with Pearl-X. I sure do love that stuff!!!!

I finished the corners with pink photo corner holders, as I thought they gave the card a rather fine finish.

Your cards are always so lovely Mom!! Incorporating polymer clay in your card making is a fantastic idea!! I love all the ones you've created and featured here today. I especially like the first butterfly one, and the 'little old guy' does make me smile. Great work!!

Sandy, incorporating the clay onto the card makes the card as much of a gift as a card! People will want to frame them or give them a special place in their home to showcase your work. Fabulous!

Thank you for the compliment on my cards Sharon,
My friend called me as soon as she received the card and told me how much she loved it and that she was wearing the hat to a Halloween party.
