Easy rustic hand formed clay tags made with these stamps.

The other day
I had fun with clay.

Embellish gifts, a nightlight (top left), or an apothecary jar.

"I did not know
you were a sculptor,"
you say.

"Far from it,"
says I,
with a raised eyeBROW.

Here is Stacey's tutorial for using her clear cling stamps.

'Twas these custom kicka$$ stamps
made by Stacey
was how!

Couldn't resist forming a few little white dresses...
then they insisted on being velcroed to a stripey canvas--go figure.

That's all the poetry you're getting.
*For now*

I sooooo enjoyed forming crude tags
then embellishing with custom stamps
(you choose your wording & font!).

I experimented with both polymer clay
and natural air-drying white clay.
I like the natural air-drying clay better
but since it takes a few days to dry,
you gots to be patient.

These easy projects require no tutorials
and very little time.
It's Stacey's stamps that steal the show.
Sure you can grab cookie cutters
and fancy tools to achieve
even texture in your shapes
if it tingles your jingles.

Experimenting with animal prints.

When is a clay tag

When it is as provocative as this
psychedelic animal print-y clay tag,
of course.
A coil of white. A coil of black.
Intertwined. Swirled then flattened
into a disk. Done.

A decidedly custom & quirky vibe at Asspocket Productions.

As a multimedia artist,
this stamphappy shop owner enjoys
 writing, painting, altering books,
gardening, lampworking, glass, and
wheel-thrown and hand-built pottery.
Recently one of the artist's stories
was published in the book Red Silk.

Custom rubber stamps
work for all sorts of projects,
no clay required; but they DO make
a great combo, yes?

Peace to you right where you are.

  1. LOVE this!

    my head is spinning with the endless possibilities, thanks

  2. I haven't played with clay since I was a kid and it sounds like fun!

  3. Kick A$$ indeed!!! LOL

    OMG! This seems to be so fun! I'd love to try it. Make something for the kids and hand in their bedrooms... Wouldn't that be cool?

    I hope you're doing well... I was thinking about you this morning, while I was driving home after dropping the kids at school. I was wishing you a good day. :-)

    Take care, sweetie and yes... LOVELOVELOVE!

    PS: I have "only" 10 weeks to go. I'm starting to freak out! LOL

  4. These are so cute! I can't leave well enough alone and I would go on to rub ink into the impressions and texture to antique them. I might try inking the stamp before I press it into the clay and then once dry, dust the tag with pearlex powders to give it a shimmer. So much fun!


  5. First, thank
    you for making
    me laugh out loud.
    I just love your
    enthusiasm for...
    in the world do you
    find the time to
    make these discoveries??
    I am SO going to
    try these tags. This
    is about the speed
    of craftwork that I
    do best : ) As more
    of a wordsmith than
    a crafter, my head is
    spinning with possible
    words and phrases.
    Thanks for making my
    day, M!!

  6. Ooh air-drying clay and stamps - such fun! I love your adorable tags and little dress models and Stacey's stamps are lovely!

    Meera xx

  7. i make time for creating because it is entirely LIFEGIVING for me. like breathing. like praying and eating bread.

    i love the act of having no real plans or agenda and just watching my hands manipulate the clay. it's a discovery my hands lead me to, and i'm never disappointed.


  8. Oh my god I need to try this! I love the 'animal print' effect, that is just bloody genius.

    You are a powerhouse of creativity woman.


  9. Ooh girl I love these and those little dresses are ADORABLE and sexy all in the same!! The stamps look so cool, I will have to go take a look-see!

  10. I have no words. Why does your blog make me go crazy, make me wanna go straight inside the pc and snatch those dainty darling things.

    I love both stamps and clay tags and I'm having that classic "get this asap" cramp.

    Btw, I love the shade of your hair. You look just as pretty as your blog :)

  11. @trumatter
    music to my ears!

    you've gotta love these little crafty ideas that don't require ANY skill or list of instructions, yes?

    and the possibilities to get creative are endless.

    still no 'book of poetry' offer from a publisher after this post. shocking.

  12. I started out using the polymer clay, too - and didn't like it at all. When I switched to air dry clay for my tags, I fell in love! :) Now I can hardly wait to make some more for Christmas presents and decorations!

    xoxo laurie

  13. oh i just love your little clay stamped fun!
    i would love a custom stamp by the other Stacey as well!!

  14. Thanks for another great idea on how to use my clay!

  15. This looks so cute -- what a fun idea!


  16. So fun! Thanks so much for linking up with us at Show & Share!

  18. Hello, found my way over! These are lovely! Thanks for the invite!

  19. My favorite gift I ever received was a watercolor painting done by a local artist. It was a picture of all the dogs that have blessed my life - past and present - and showed my husband and I walking in a snowy field along a streambed with the dogs running ahead of us. It's how my idea for my Heaven's Walk blog was born. ♥

  20. I love giving gifts that have a reason behind them and will be used throughout the year. Because my mother has Alzheimer's and is always cold, I'm giving her a nice warm cardigan with a floral scarf for Christmas. I know they will both get alot of use all year long. :)

    xoxo laurie

  21. How fun and creative! I've never worked with clay before, but after seeing your post, I'd love to try! Great idea using the rubber stamps, too:)

  22. Love love love! I am just thinking about how much more special these tags could make Christmas gifts! I am the world’s worst wrapper but I might be able to make up for it by adding a personalised clay tag! Gorgeous!
