Time to Shine/ Fun Stampers Journey Jewelry

Hey everyone! Today I have something completely different to share. It is not using any paper, inks or stamps! Gasp. But it is fun nevertheless :)
Richard Garay offers a beautiful line of jewelry called Time to Shine Journey Girl Jewelry and I wanted to show you how you can customize the pretty pendants from the collection. These would make great gifts for Christmas! Here comes my version:

I thought it would be fun to do a Monogram pendant and luckily, I had a word die including the V. This is how I did it:

1. Here are all the elements to assemble a pendant. They come in those cute little bags!
2. I die-cut a circle from grey felt and used the "Love" die from the "All You" set from the Celebra'tions Collection to die-cut the word from pink felt.
3. Now I trimmed the "V" from the word and adhered it to the circle with Journey Glaze.
4. Then I assembled the pendant and added that adorable cactus.

Here you can see how to assemble the elements:

1. Open the pendant base and insert one of the clear circles into the bottom ring.
2. Place your circle and the embellishments onto that clear circle.
3. Insert the second clear circle into the top ring.
4. Click the clear ring into the top ring and close your pendant. Adhere to your necklace.

So fun, isn't it?

There are so many ways to personalize these pendants! Use sequins or small beads to fill them, punch a circle from a map or from a favorite quote or a word from the dictionary! And if you don't like the look any more, just change it! Find all the elements and many more here.

Cute Penny Black Christmas

I am back with a cute Penny Black Christmas card. Christmas is coming closer too fast and I want to use all my sweet sets before it is too late :) And I would like to send out cards, so I need to speed up to get them all done! I'll enter it to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Christmas again.

Love these adorable images! I first stamped the image with a very soft Distress Ink, then drew and colored over the image with the Derwent Inktense pencils. Using my watertank brush, I applied water. After everything was dried, I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment, then adhered the panel to a red card base. The card was finished off with some clear sequins.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!




Sweet Elf

Hey there! I've been waiting to have some time to play with the adorable MFT set "Santa's Elves" and here I finally did! So cute and fun to color! And it is perfect for the new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Christmas:

I applied some Spearmint Dye Ink onto a panel of watercolor paper, then added green ink splatters. The images were stamped and die-cut with the matching dies, then I colored them with Copics. It is really difficult to see, but I applied Wink of Stella to the star and the little bell. After I had adhered the images to my card, I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment onto a strip of Spearmint cardstock, using silver embossing powder. You can see it better here:

I hope to be back with some more cuteness, soon! Thanks for stopping by!
