Paper Smooches Anything Goes (Feb 16-22) Challenge

Here is this week's Paper Smooches Anything Goes challenge:

And here is the finished card I made for the challenge:

First, I stamped the circle of flowers with Calico set. 

Then, I used the "forever" die cut through three layers of cardstocks and glue together. I put this paper stencil I made on top of the flower circle and glue those tiny pieces of spacers for "f", "o", and "e" inside the space of the paper stencil.

I applied the gold embossing paste on the "forever" paper stencil to make the dimensional gold word on top of the flower circle.

Here is the close look of the gold "forever".

Cardstock: PTI (white), Ranger
Stamps: Paper Smooches (Calico & Alphadot)
Ink Pads: Memento, Archival ink pad
Die: Paper Smooches
Others: embossing paste (Viva Ferro), Wink of Stella clear glitter pen

Hero Arts Birthday Challenge

Hero Arts has a Birthday Challenge with five category options, and I made a floral birthday card for the Floral Birthday Cards category. Below are the Hero supplies I used, including the floral stencil, newspaper background stamp, and the clear stamp set using the happy birthday greeting.

And below is the finished floral birthday card:

I put the floral stencil on a piece of white cardstock and stamp the newspaper background with Versamark ink on top of the stencil. Flip over the whole thing and use your fingers on the cardstock to make the newspaper stamp stamping into the floral petals. Then, I remove the stencil and white embossed the cardstock. After that, I put the floral stencil back to the white cardstock, and applied different shades of blue Distress ink pads onto the floral stencil. You can see the white embossed newspaper background text resisted with blue inks. Finish the card with "Happy Birthday to You" greeting and attach two star enamel stickers on the stripe. I put the foam dots behind the greeting stripe to make it pop out. 

Cartstocks: PTI (white), Stampin' Up (blue)
Stamps: Hero Arts
Ink Pads: Distress ink pads, Archival ink pad, Versamark
Stencil: Hero Arts
Others: white embossing powder, star enamal sticker (October Afternoon), foam dots

V-shaped Crystal Necklace

Here is the V-shaped necklace I made with Swarovski crystal AB bicones (4mm, 6mm, and 8mm).

I wore this necklace to attend my high school reunion and all my classmates liked it - got a lot of praises. Below is another look of the necklace.

The length of the necklace is about 16 inches and because I used the crystal AB bicones, so the necklace is pretty shiny.
