Thanks!  So did my family Cheesy  My mom wouldn't even eat the cookies because she liked the look of it so much.  My dad, however, liked the taste of the cookies more than the look of the project  Cheesy

My mom LOVES to make things with clay pots and I seem to have inherited what my sisters and I have come to call "clay pot craft disease."  Last year I made flower shaped cookies on a stick that I "planted" in a clay pot (with styrofoam in the bottom), put the pot in a clear gift bag and filled it with caramel puffcorn for "dirt."  I needed to think of a way to top it this year and came up with this brilliant (I think) idea!

I made a snowman out of a clay pot, styrofoam ball, a piece of felt, a baby sock and some puff paint.  Then I painted a clay saucer, put a styrofoam disk in the bottom and glued some quilt batting to the styrofoam disk for "snow."  When it was all done, I planted some tree shaped cookies on sticks for the snowman's forest.  I love the way it turned out!  Any thoughts or questions are welcome!

My husband and I wanted to do something for his supervisor's daughters for Christmas, so we decided to make them their own stationery.  Her younger daughter is into ANYTHING fancy and girly and sparkly.  We decided to go with a simple design and then embellish it with some rhinestone stickers for a fancy, multi-media project. We used the Yudu screenprinter and a 220 screen with speedball ink to complete the project. Thoughts or questions welcome!

My husband and I wanted to do something for his supervisor's daughters for Christmas, so we decided to make them their own stationery.  Her older daughter is into skulls.  Specifically, the ones with the bows on them.  We decided that pairing it with an argyle pattern would be an interesting look and this is what we came up with! We used the Yudu screenprinter and 2 220 screens with speedball ink to complete the project. Thoughts or questions welcome!

Hi, erdbeerblau!

We are kind of a fan of lower case text for most projects and thought that using all lower case in the name on the side placed more emphasis on the logo and less on the text.

As far as the thought process for the logo, we used the circular shape to suggest the shape of a bead and then used the uppercase M specifically in that style because we thought that the lines in it were similar to the idea of a draping necklace or hanging bracelet. Also, the lowercase M just didn't look right when we played with it in the logo.  We didn't really think too much about the connection between the uppercase M in the logo and then the lowercase text.

Love it!  I hadn't thought about screen printing on shrink plastic.  What a cool idea!  Hope everyone you gave them to loved them as well!
9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Thank you cards with 3 layers of color on: December 13, 2009 03:53:55 PM
My sister and her boyfriend are starting their own catering company and for Christmas we are making them a set of thank you cards that they can send out to their clients after an event.  For the cards, we used metallic card stock and then printed a background layer to look like sprinkles (a lighter brown color on the brown cards and a darker blue on the blue cards), after the sprinkles we printed the outline layer for the words "thank you" (magenta on the brown cards and chocolate brown on the blue cards) and then finally we printed the words "thank you" in white on both cards.  We also screened a white area on the back of both cards and used the ink jet printer to print her company logo on the back of the cards.  

Here are a few pictures from the process as well as the finished products.  Any thoughts or tips are welcome!

Thanks, smittenheart! My husband is a graphic designer and designed the logo on his own.  So far, we have only worked with paper in the Yudu machine and done a variety of stationery for friends, family and a few clients.  We are hoping to get some time to experiment on fabric soon!  We're hoping his sister loves getting this present as much as we loved working on it Cheesy
