I’m not a jewelry kinda person. I had to think of another way for me to utilize Stampin’ Up!’s new line of chains with charms called Simply Adorned. I have the 1″ x 1-1/4″ Locket-style charm (116798) that I will be using on my keychain. Not much working room for someone like me who likes to focus in on those little details.
This is the front view of the locket. The glass is beveled so some areas in the above image look a bit distorted. So, below is a pic of my little piece of art outside of the locket.
Thought this would be a cute little image for a keychain. I used Sale-A-Bration stamp set Good Neighbors to create the scene. How about the coordinating Designer Series Papers for this stamp set? I had to use the Welcome Neighbor Designer Series Paper Pad on this project.
Again, with the work area being rather small, I wanted the front to showcase stamping. For the back, I wanted to showcase my love for papers! I created a small woven sampler for the back (the glass is flat on the back–not beveled).
You must have patience if you are going to attempt the above! It took about 30 minutes to create this small woven sampler area. I used several small strips of the patterned paper measuring 1/8″ x 6″.
Here is a picture of the woven sampler outside of the locket
I used my Small Heart Punch, Pretty in Pink cardstock, and a Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker to create the heart.
