Just a few things I knocked up! lol

I buy this Magazine every month, rarely do I actually make anything out of it the last thing I did was a take on a diary they had. My version was this Twilight Note book that was back in Feb. go have a look! I loved it, when I had finished I sent it to a lovely friend who is Twilight Mad in America. But I opened this months, Not only is here a HUGE spred on Stampin' Up! which is FAB by the way. But this little idea of making your very own bracelet so I thought what a wonderful thing to make. So off I went lol. I have used the Tart & Tangy Stamp set as when they are stamped are all round and easy to make, but if you get some back ground stamps (special offer of Free Back gound stamps in June & July) you can do all sorts.
How did I make it? well it took longer than I thought it would. But it is very simple to make (just takes a while) I had four images that I stamped on four colours real red, old olive, pumpkin Pie & whisper white (four times each) I used four inks same as before only instead of whisper white I used Black stazon. I had some beads and some clear elastic, punched holes in each corner, after folding every circle in half (use a bone folder it needs to be crisp.) Then threaded the elastic through (like tram lines)one at the top & bottom. (The magazine has step by step photos) it is as I said very easy just takes some time! Its worth it I think and imagine the colours for summer? this is just an example of the many variations you could do.

Finally I wanted some flowers (but they had to be SU) so I made some using the scallop punch and SU carstock with SU buttons, the 3D one could also be a broach to go with your bracelet and if you have a small circle punch you can make matching earrings too! dead simple low cost and very trendy not to mention Unique, no one else will have any the same. I love stamping! it's not just for making cards is it? oh and as I said in the magazine there is a HUGE spread and they use SU stamps to make your tea set unique too! I hope you like this post please leave a comment Love Dawn xx
