The leaves/feathers (choose one) on the blue one glow in the dark!

Everywhere I look this yr I see wings (Ed Hardy style)  

I think the Sacred Hearts and broken then mended bottles are my fav!  I see book marks in the future with some of these.

You didn't think my penmanship was that great did ya?  I made impressions of this wonderful find (scrapbooking tags) to reverse stamp then used pearl ex powders over the black clay that appears to be stamped with ink but it is not.

Wow you've been onlayin' and stampin' your little heart out (no pun intended Grin)! Did you do them all recently?, or did you do runs/experiments of each basic type?  Very nice.

Thank you Diane!
I made the cameo bottle last summer using a tiny crystal cameo for impression. I did a few broken hearts 2 yrs ago but did not have the tags to play with till last fall. My words looked "cake icing like".   I been waiting for valentines day to post.  My newest are the sacred hearts.  I tried them before but seemed too plain without the words.  The added tags did the trick for me and now I felt they were ready to share.

  I really LOVE Your work! They are so different in detail. It's especially cool the way you imprinted the stamps. Would you be able to elaborate a bit on how that was done, what medium was used to hold the impression?
  I'm sure whoever gets one of these will treasure it.

Flatten small amount of scrap polymer clay.  Dab your tag onto damp papertowel (or be lazy like me sometimes and lick it  Tongue)  press tag into clay with a little force.  Notice the cool arrows on the back on which way is up YAY!)  The water helps to cleanly release tag with best impression.  Cut close to the letters around w/ clay blade.  Bake on flat surface.

Hard to get the light just right to see the impressions, but use over and over on whatever strikes you to put them......

So you can see what I am doing better, I pressed into white clay.
Dampen baked stamp, press into clay and cut around again.  Do not lift from work surface after the pressing yet.  When you do the next step you do not want them moving around.

I used a black ink pad onto the white clay on one, and silver ink pad on black on another  by blotting the pad directly onto raw clay (if clay is not secure to work surface it will stick to your pad), Gold powder on black clay and blue pearl ex powders on the white clay by using fingertip from little jar.  I like the white letters, first time I used white....

Allow the ink impressions to dry before removing or moving around. Use your clay blade to relocate wherever as to not mess it up.
I used future floor polish after baking to protect the powders.  I have yet to have the inks wear off w/o futurepolish tho.

I'm a little confuzzled... could you perhaps post pics of what things looked like before pic 1, and between pic 1 and 2, or explain in words?

For example, what did the round metal "tag" have on it's front side?
...one letter, or a whole word?
...impressed letters, or raised letters?

And when you "cut around the letters," did you mean cutting around all the letters of the word in one fell swoop (into a rectangle shape, for example), or did you cut each letter separately and use it later as a stamp?
...And were the letters or words raised or impressed when you did that trimming?

(Sorry, there are so many ways to do stamps and molds and reverse molds/etc/etc for lettering
 that I just keep jumping off to various possibilities so may be more confused that I need to be Grin).

  Thank You so much for that tute! I wondered if you had to some other medium, but I guess not! I will put this to use when I make my attempt in the polymer clay board!
