Sweet Williams Charms

I thought the Sweet Williams flower from Cheery Lynn Designs would make a really cute charm, when I went to throw away the shrink film I cut them out of I thought the negative would be perfect for the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 16 - Frame It I “framed” a bead.
Cherry Lynn Designs Die-Sweet William
Shrink Film
Stazon Ink
Diamond glaze
Rubber Stamp
Pinch Bail
Jump Ring
Paper Punch

Instructions: Randomly stamp shrink film with any rubber stamp using Stazon ink, cut with Cheery Lynn Designs die, save both the positive and negative, punch a hole to place the bail or jump ring in, follow the shrink films instructions, after the piece cools add a jump ring or bail. To frame the bead coat the tips of the flower with Diamond glaze or a glue that dries clear and wedge the bead in place. This can them be added to a necklace, key ring, or zipper pull. Have fun!

Here is the bracelet that I made the charms for. For the charm centers I wire wrapped a bead, placed in the center, on the back side I just twisted the wire in a circle to keep the bead in place

Into the Garden

I made her for Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 15 - Pretty in Pink. I used their Exotic Butterflies Small #2 for her wings. The flowers she is holding was made with Darling Daisies. Her face was stamped with a sun stamp and turned into an epoxy with Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio and placed in a recycled bottle cap. Her arms and legs are assorted beads. Thanks for stopping by!

For Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 14 - Red and White I used their Exotic Butterflies Small and Exotic Butterflies Small #2 to cut a coke can. On the large one I wanted a more embossed look so I did not use shims to cut so I had to carefully punch out the butterfly since it also mostly embossed the outer edges too. On the smaller ones I used shims so it cut deeper. Thanks for the awesome dies and the fun challenge!

Vintage Valentine

For May Arts A Sentimental Journey Vintage Valentine Challenge
I used all four ribbons on the birdhouse. The brown I placed in the center of the pink and put around the bottom, the thin lace is around the top, and the large white is tied to the top. The birds I painted pink, added crackle medium, then painted them brown. I also cut hearts from the white ribbon and stitched the smaller ribbon on the front. One of those I put on a necklace.

What a Hoot

A card I made for the Hero Arts Die Cut Challenge The owl is a QuicKutz die, for his wings I added hearts customized with Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio, he is mounted on foam tape and sits on a stump stamped with Hero Arts What a Hoot set. The sentiment is also from that set. Ink is from Colorbox. Paper is Lost and Found from My Minds Eye. The Heart Button was made with Epiphany Crafts Button Studio. Thanks for stopping by!
