The first pair of earrings were made with vintage chandelier crystals.

Black and white bracelet I made to go with my necklace.

This is my first time making a necklace. It took a couple hours of making it with trial and error. I took small chain links and put them between clack and white beads and then finished it off using a vintage chandelier crystal.

ATC swaps

Here are some atcs I made for swaps I was in.

Cherry Pie Yahoo group Burnt Sienna color swap. I loved how this one turned out, the picture really doesn't do it justice. I did a lot of embossing on this. For the background I took different Cherry Pie Key stamps and using clear embossing ink and powder, I randomly stamped them on the background. The ink well is also embossed along with the "To be or not to be" saying (which was stamped on a tag cut from the Tim Holtz Tiny tabs and tags die.) All stamps from Cherry Pie

Cherry Pie Yahoo group Sunset colors swap. All stamps from Cherry Pie

This was for the Cherry Pie Stamps Yahoo group which was an Edgar Allen Poe theme. All stamps from Cherry Pie

This one was for a color swap which was Pink and Red in the Stampers Anonymous Yahoo group. I used Tim Holtz stamps, masks, printed paper from DCWV Mariposa stack, and the Tag and Bookplate die for this one. I think it looks better in person, you can see the detail and colors better.

12 tags of 2012- February

I didn't have any of Tim Holtz's Valentines items except for the cupid and heart from the Seasonal masks and ticket stamp from the Odds and Ends stamp set so I decided to finally use them. I used printed paper from DCWV Mariposa stack for the background with the masks. I had fun making this tag and happy with how it turned out, especially the dress which took a couple of times to get the pleats right.

Thanks for all of the people who took the time to comment on my tag, I truly appreciate it!

Birthday cards

The first and second cards were made using My Mind's eye paper. The third card was for my dad and I used a mixture of the DCWV Tattered Time paper stack and Tim Holtz paper stack. I also used the Tim Holtz bingo embossing folder with metal and cut out the sqaure with the 13 which was the date my dad was born on and then colored it in with alcohol inks.
