Monogrammed Stamped Clay

Last week, Emily came to visit. Yay! While we were at our parent’s home, they shared with us that they had found our grandfather’s old letter stamp set. So cool!

There was this great idea from a Better Homes & Gardens magazine (I believe the original photo from the magazine had a super cute leaf pattern stamped onto clay) and our step mom, Beth, suggested that we use Grandpa’s stamp set to make our own stamped clay project. So we rounded up some oven bake clay and got to work.

First, we each took a portion of the clay and worked it in our hands to loosen it up. Like we were giving it a deep tissue massage. Ahhhhhh. Next, we used a rolling pin to flatten clay.

Then, with a little oil on each stamp to keep it from sticking, we pushed the stamp into the clay. Emily chose an ampersand, which she cut around and poked a hole through to make a hanging ornament.

And I did a pattern with the letter E. Natural choice, right? You can see that I put the circle into a small bowl (oiled) to form it into a dish shape.

Each piece was baked in the oven at 250 degrees for 15 minutes. Just enough time to take a quick shower or straighten your hair. Or whatever you like to get done in 15 minutes.

After everything is cooled, you can sand the edges if things need smoothed out a bit. We love how both of our projects turned out!

    First off, it’s so awesome you were able to come across your grandfather’s old stamp set, but I especially love what you both did with it! You are being featured over at The Makers Link Party this week. I hope you will stop by to grab a button!
