Swarovski space bar and rainbow color bracelet

I have not done beading for a while and attracted by Swarovski elements crystal beads recently. I started to look for video tutorials and found this one - "space bar and color wheel bracelet" on Auntie's Beads site. The tutorial explained very well and it seams easy for me to do. So, here is the bracelet I made:

I only used 11 colors of Swarovski bicone beads (instead of 12 colors in the video) because my wrist is smaller and the length of 11 colors fit me perfectly. Here is another photo of the bracelet:

These bicone beads and space bars are so sparkle and the triangle style is very trendy as well. Here is the look when you open the bracelet:

You can see all of the colors on the above photo. Below is another photo to show the cool side of colors:

The blue & purple looks very elegant. Below is the photo to show the warm side of colors:

These red/pink/orange colors look very yummy. I cannot wait to wear my hand-made bracelet.

Thank you for visiting my blog and have a wonderful Labor Day weekend.

Holiday Gift Tag Challenge - Moxie Fab World

Here is the tag I made to attend Moxie Fab World's Holiday Gift Tag Challenge. Even though it's just August currently, the excitement of holidays will come soon with these challenges. This is the tag I made:

I used Memory Box poinsettia die set to cut out the flower and leaves and shaded with Distress ink pads. Then, I applied the Distress glitters on the edge of flower to make it sparkle. I assembled the flower and leaves on the tag cut out from Papertrey Ink tag die with the shimmer cardstock. Finish the tag with the pink pearl on the flower center and a matching green ribbon. Below is a closer look of the tag:

Cardstocks: PTI
Ink Pads: Distress ink pads
Dies: Memory Box (poinsettia), PTI (tag)
Others: Distress glitters, glossy accent, pearl, ribbon

CFC112 - CAS-ual Fridays Challenge

Here is CAS-ual Fridays' new challenge for the aqua, green, and orange color combo (CFC112). Below is the challenge:

I made this card "Happy Everything" for the challenge:

All of the vases were cut from Paper Smooches' "Crystal Clear" die set. Then, I applied Glossy Accent and sprinkled the new Distress glitters on the vases. I stamped the leaves and flower on the white cardstock, and attached some of the vases with foam dots to create dimensional look. Finish the card with the "Happy Everything" greeting and use the glitter pen tracing "everything" to create a sparkling shadow. Attach the enamel dots to decorate the card. 

Here is a closer look of the glittery vases:

Cardstocks: PTI (white), Stampin' Up (aqua)
Stamps: Paper Smooches (Crystal Clear & Simply Said)
Ink Pads: Distress ink pads, Memento
Die: Paper Smooches
Others: glitter pen, Distress glitters, Glossy Accent, foam dots, enamel dots

God Will Guide You - The Trendy Triangles Challenge

Here is the card I made for the Trendy Triangles Challenge from Moxie Fab World.

Triangle shape design has become a trendy shape in craft industry. I used one of the triangle stamps from Mama Elephant's Trifecta set to silver embossed the image. Then, I applied the different colors of Inktense watercolor pencils with water brush onto the triangles. After dried, I cut out the triangle border and added a dark grey border. Then, I attached the triangle border on the white cardstock background with foam dots to create a little dimension. I stamped "God will guide you" (from Paper Smooches' Spiritual Sampler set) with dark grey ink. Finish the card by silver embossed the triangle arrows under the text.

Here is another picture of the card:

Cardstocks: PTI (white), Stampin' Up (light & dark grey)
Stamps: Mama Elephant, Paper Smooches
Ink Pads: Versamark, Archival ink (grey)
Others: Inktense watercolor pencils, water brush, silver embossing powder, foam dots
