Tropical Punch Dazzle-It Blog Hop

I'm excited to be sharing a project I made with the new Tropical Punch line by Dazzle-it! The collection includes lucite flowers, chains, flower components and polyester pipe! Its perfect for everyone from the beginner to advanced jewelry maker!

I decided to make a simple flower necklace for the summer months.

Supplies Used:
  • Flower Maker
  • Poly Pipe 5 mm 
  • Finding Kit Gold Jump Rings
  • Finding Kit Gold Pendant Ball
  • Curved Shaded Purple
I had left over Purple Shaded pieces and thought they would make a pretty pendant with a bit of stamping. You know if its on my desk its going to eventually get stamped, LOL! 

For this next necklace, I stamped the purple curved piece with a Stampendous image (SSC1196) in StazOn and then added dots of white nail polish. I attached organza ribbon to the chain and wired the stamped piece on. 

Be sure to head on over to the Dazzle-It Blog to see what everyone has whipped up! A big thank you to Carmi and John Bead Corporation for inviting me to be a part of this hop!

Stampendous and Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Hop...

This week the Stampendous and Faber Castell Design Memory Craft design teams have teamed up to bring you tons of gorgeous projects! 

I began by stamping the rose design in Versamark on watercolor paper and embossing it with white embossing powder. 

Next I colored the design with a variety of Faber Castell mediums, Aquarelle watercolor pencils, Gelatos and PITT Pastel Pencils. I really just played and dabbled until I was happy with the color.

Next I added layers of stenciling using Clear Scraps Mascil and a the dot stencil from the Stampendous Wired stamp set.

I also added a bit of shading around the pattern paper and journaling bits with the Gelatos. I seriously need to invest in a few more sets of Gelatos. So much fun to use and so many cool ways to use them!

Supplies Used 

3 Lucky Winners this week will get three sets of the PITT Pastel Pencils (red/yellow, blue/green, neutrals), a jar of Faber-Castell Chalkboard Paint, and $20 Stampendous reward card to choose their favorite images to color! WOW… these winners must have a U.S. mailing address (official rules here!)… BUT WAIT- Aussie Fans – The Stencil Specialist has you covered again this time!! One Australian Fan will win a Stampendous Stamp, a Dreamweaver Stencil (LJ size customer choice), and one Dreamweaver Stencils Regular Embossing Paste. Wow!!
