Projects 104-110 of 365: Scrabble Tile Necklaces November 19, 2010

Tis true…if you love Stampin Up’s Patterned Paper as much as I do you can wear it!!! 🙂

I’m sure you have all heard or seen this Scrabble tile jewelry trend, so ofcourse I just had to jump on the bandwagon.  And I am so glad I did…..These cute little pendants are so fun and easy to make.  All I did was trim little focal areas out of some of my favorite patterned paper, adhered it to the tile, sanded the edges and sealed it with epoxy resin, attached a jewelry bail (so I could dangle from necklace), and there you have it….I personalized piece of art for your neck or charm bracelet.

I also stamped a small image on one of them….the one with the little vine/leaves was just stamped in Really Rust ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock.

If anyone is interested in purchasing a pendant, necklace, or charm bracelet just let me know….I take custom orders.

24 of 365: Top Note Business Card Holder June 13, 2010

A few days ago I ran across a lovely business card hold made using the Sizzix Big Shot and Stampin’ Up! Top Note Die.  The one I found had flowers on the front of it (like the one I made.) as well as a link to a tutorial by Nicole Kowalk.  So I used Nicole’s Template (with some adjustments), but I can not find the person who gave me the idea for the flowers on the front again….

24 of 365: Top Note Business Card Holder

I just love the vintage look of this one.  I created the flowers with patterned paper and edged them with chocolate chip ink.  Then, as with any vintage project, I threw in a few pearls for good measure 🙂  On the top center of the card holder I wanted to add a “Please take one” stamp, like in the tutorial.  I thought I had a stamp like that, but I don’t, so I am still thinking of what to put there…..Maybe I will just create some word art and print it on cardstock to say “StampinBetty”?????

Supplies:

Paper:

  • To the Nines Specialty Designer Series Paper (you need the thicker paper for this project to be sturdy)

  • Top Note Die
  • XL Fancy Flower Punch

To find the tutoral please visit Nicole’ Blog, and then make adjustments as needed for your project….
