Todays LSC251 challenge on SCS was to make something with Silver and Gold...I went with Glitter Ball ornaments...they look gorgeous and have silver caps at the top...I hope you like them!
This is the one I entered into the LSC challenge because it had the monst "gold" I actually used summer sun reinker to make this one and at first I was a bit skeptical (my daughter picked the color) but I actually love how it turned out! The girl has good taste!
Here is a view of all the ornaments...the purple one is for my daughter...she picked the color and the snowflake...cute...just like her!

A shade of blue, I think this is a reiner from last years in colors...bayou blue!

Love how this red one turned out...real red...about 25 drops, swirl and add glitter. easy peasy!
I think this is one of my favorite...tempting turquoise!

Green Galore also turned out very festive...so festive that I made 2!

And this is a view of the ornaments from the top...these felt flurries snowflakes just look incredible on these glitter ball ornaments! Too bad I ran out of my black gingham ribbon! Boo Hiss!

Stamps: None
Ink: Various refills
Paper: None
Accessories: Dazzling diamonds glitter, felt flurries, gingham ribbon, glass ball ornaments

Pendant Necklace Eyelet Clasp know how!

Hey there,
I just wanted to post some pictures of the most recent pendant necklace...well most recent kinda, I'm working on one right now! Anywho I had some people ask me how I did the clasp with eyelets so I wanted to share with you all! I love making these things!!!

But don't forget about my BLOG CANDY! I'm giving away a pack of COPIC markers! you know you want some!!!!!

Now for the pics!
Here is a pic of what you need...your washer pendant...instructions can be found here.... at the origional SCS Challenge.
YOu will need:
*Completed Washer
*Large eyelets
*leather cording or ribbon
* Copr-a-dial
* Clasps

YOu will want to slide the eyelet in with the back first, then slide on the clasp.
Now loop the ribbon and slide it through the eyelet again.
Now take your crop-a-dial and flip it to the flat part! For the squeezing I didn't take a picture, but you want to do it on the side of the eyelet...not top to bottom like you would if you were closing it on paper. Make sence?

And this is what it looks like when you are finished! I know you can do it too! Please let me know if you have any questions!
I will be sharing more necklaces soon!
Happy Stampin and don't forget about the COPIC BLOG CANDY HERE!!!

TLC249 & TLC250

Hey all, don't forget to check out my COPIC SKETCH blog candy going on now until Christmas DAY!!!

This is a post for this weeks and last weeks Technique Lovers Challenges. This weeks TLC 250 was to make a shipping tag box...super cute! And last weeks TLC249 was to make a necklace out of metal washers...I actually made 4 but already gave away 2 and one is not complete yet. Anywho, here are pics!Here is a little ensamble...I wish I had made the little packaging out of the same paper I made the necklace, but unfortunately it was just a scrap! Cute non the less and I know the recipient will love it!

Just a little close up of the box...I loved how super simple it was...I dodn't have tags so I just cut my papers as per the measurements and went with it...didn't cut the corners because I liked the look of the square ends.

Here is the necklace I made. I actually used some eyelets to attach the leather. turned out cute if I do say so myself! I hope my friend likes it!

And this is a close up of the card...super simple, yet still ohhh so pretty!
