Simply Adorned

Hope you are having a great day!






I wanted to show you Stampin' Up!'s jewelry line, Simply Adorned. I will be purchasing a chain and charm as a gift for a church elder. As I do not have them now, I have designed several inserts for her to use.

I made 6 charms using Crosses of Hope. The colors are (top, left to right) Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point (night of navy brad), and Early Espresso. (bottom, left to right) Silver/Gold embossed, Pear Pizzazz (non-SU! brad), and Real Red.

Cross Charm Instructions:
To make the cross insert, cut a piece of glossy cardstock (1 1/2" x 2"). Ink the cross, stamp on a piece of scrap paper, then stamp in the middle of the piece of cardstock. Take a sponge dauber, with almost no ink, and brush it vertically to create a roughened look. Then sponge the edge of the insert. Insert a brad, and use a marker to only ink 'God' on the 'God bless you' sentiment.

Snowflakes Charm Instructions:
The snowflakes insert uses a Serene Snowflakes and Holiday Collection (retired), I used the hologram technique (mix clear emboss powder and dazzling diamonds) and white embosses each individual word from the "HOLIDAY WISHES peace.joy.love" stamp.

Swirls Charm Instructions:
The middle insert uses a retired wheel "So Swirly", ink in Early Espresso, and add two brads.

Moments Charm Instructions:
Use your Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive markers to make the grass. The flower image is from 'Beary Best Friends'. Use your Old Olive, Blushing Bride, and Peach Parfait markers to color the flower and stamp. 'Moments.' is from Elements of Style. Again, use your old olive marker to ink the sentiment. The bee was hand-drawn using the Daffodil Delight and Basic Black markers.

I will post this again when I get the chain and charm.

Don't forget to e-mail me your order to get 20%! (ends October 29th)
