LOL sure I can!
The circle stamp I am pressing into the clay is the word peace.  The letters in original tags are stamped down into the metal.  After impression is made the letters are RAISED upward.  So after baking your backwards raised letters, you press into another flattened raw piece of clay then the letters go back DOWN like the original tags.  I cut entire word out (rectangle shape) not each letter at a time, are ya trying to kill me Diane?? lol JK
My explaination is hard to explain, lol!!!
But did you understand?

LOLOL... oh, you betcha.  BTDT a lot!

Yep, I think.  So is this right? (I try to consistently use the words impressed and raised btw since they're short but descriptive):

...you purchased a metal scrapbooking "tag" which is round and has the letters of the word peace impressed into it**
...after pressing that tag into a raw clay sheet, you're left with the letters to the word peace raised above the rest of the clay... and you bake that to create a regular raised "stamp"
...the clay stamp (with raised letters) is then pressed into another sheet of raw clay, and you closely trim off the excess clay from around the outside of the whole word... and bake the final piece
...can't remember if you antiqued the impressed word with paint/etc., or if you highlighted with metallic powder, or both, etc, though

**that could also be called a shallow mold or a reverse stamp

 Grin, no.  It's just that clayers do sometimes cut out letters individually to create their stamps so they'll have the option later of creating their own new words, and to be able to put those letters in any "shape"... e.g., in an arc, with wide or narrow spacing, or with "jaunty" orientations, etc.

Diane--Since the letters are all different sizes and shapes in these tags, I kept all one word. 
I explain myself into confusion.  Words are harder for me than action. (since walking is hard for me to do with MS, it should be the other way around)
Word recall is getting worse every yr for me.  I can control the clay better than my own body.  Cheesy
People ask me why I do not bore easy with polyclay, I answer: "clay I can control, so I run with it with bells and whistles"!

Not sure what I would do w/o you Diane to help me explain my actions, please be here forever!!!  Kiss

I totally understand (my problem is brain fog from fibromyalgia).  I think most everyone has a hard time explaining things in detail though unless they just practice a lot...that's helped me anyway. 
That's also one reason why I love being able to write explanations, without being rushed, and I also make a lot of use of the edit function...lol.   Being able to type instead of hand-write has set me free too because my brain jumps all over the place and quickly, so at least I can keep up with it better while I'm typing.
