Have you heard of a Cling Décor Stamp? I had no idea they existed until I accidentally found Iron Orchid Designs Periscopes and was instantly giddy about their products.

Let me tell you a little bit about my new friends—Sally and Josie, two sisters who are fabulously creative and work at home Moms! I contacted Sally to talk about working with them, and here we are—working together on this sponsored post AND giveaway!
The first periscope I found was a demo with their transfers. I don’t have my hot little hands on the transfers yet, but I do have their Vintage Art Décor Molds, some of which I used for this project! I also got a couple of Iron Orchid Design Cling Stamps, all made by Prima Marketing.
What you’ll need:
- Piece of boring furniture
- Paint of your choice
- Prima IOD Clear Décor Stamp (Louis)
- Stamp Block
- Décor Ink (Rouen)
- Baroque Vintage Art Décor Mold #1
- Paper Clay
- Gorilla Wood Glue or drywall mud (what I used)
- Paper Towel
- Baby Wipes
- Emery Board
- Chip Brush

I opened the box LIVE on Periscope, you can watch the replay on Katch.me.
I used a paper towel on a foil lined tray to ink my stamp. You could use a small foam roller.
These type stamps are “cling” stamps, meaning they cling onto the extra large stamp block. The baby wipes are really handy to clean off the block and stamps.
I picked up some items from the dollar store to play around with.
This was a test subject, and I love how the stamp turned out on the flower pot. Because it was round, I sort of had to roll it to get the entire surface stamped.
Another test piece, a one dollar placemat dressed up. Fabric takes the IOD Ink really well!
After testing the stamp and getting the technique down, I started stamping on top of the t.v. stand in a semi-random pattern.
I used an orbital sander to distress the ink slightly to make it match the look of the distressed cabinet.
I jumped right in making some paper clay molds the same day I got my package for another project I have in the works.
I did some distressing on the old t.v. cabinet with an Emery Board . I buy them on Amazon by the box.
While distressing the cabinet I remembered that there were two small medallions that I removed and thought that two of the pieces would work perfectly in their place.
I used some of the IOD ink and a cheap chip brush to give a nice green highlight on the molds.
You can attach the mold appliques with Gorilla Wood Glue-which I have a LOT of, but I wanted to sort of fill around the edges of my appliques, so I used drywall mud.
For more ideas on paper clay mold appliques, visit my friend Debbie at Refresh Restyle. She did some fabulous projects using the IOD molds.
It gives the old piece a little pop of color, eh?
I think that using these extra large décor stamps on furniture and fabric projects is brilliant! You can even do these stamps on walls and more!
These are some of the wonderful stamps that will be available from Prima Marketing and IOD– Persephone End, Friffery, Louis, Fleur. Which is your favorite?
