New ideas for charms

As promised i am back again today to share a few more
things that i made with the Birds of a Feather charm set
sold at Butterbee Scraps.  This set really had cute charms so
today i am sharing 2 necklaces that i did and a card that
i used the charm on.  Grab some tea and relax.. i have lots
of ideas today to share with you.

  So first up i really had fun with this pin that i did.
i started with a piece of white paper and inked it and let
it dry a little.  Then i made a template for the top of
the frame with an old piece of plastic and a sharpie and 
then cut it out.  I glued it in the frame and then added 2 layers
of clear crackle paint and it came out really neat looking.


Then i glued on the back filigree and a pin back....

and then i added that pretty bird charm on the right.  I 
thought that it would be really pretty to have flowers and
leaves on the bottom so i added some bead caps and cut
the leaves a little smaller and glued them at the bottom.

and then i went back after it was all dry and added more 
Staz on ink in pink, green and aqua.  A few rhinestones and it's
ready to wear.  I will have to think of a cute jacket to wear it on!! 
Maybe something bright pink would be nice i think.

Next is another necklace i did with the same frame and 
this one i used the same template that i had and cut a really
pretty piece of paper to put in the back.  I added a pretty thick
layer of glossy accents and let it dry and just when it was still
stickly i pushed the birdhouse charm into the top and let it dry.
The chain and jump rings are from Butterbee Scraps too.

And finally my last project is a card that i did with the new 
Doodlebug spring papers out.  I used another of the birdhouse
charms and one of my favorite new dies from Spellbinders
and a stamp from Justrite papercrafts.  It went together super
quick and i know exactly who to give this one to :)

To make my projects today i used these things
from the Butterbee Scraps online store:
Birds of a feather charm set, Cap247-B, F-094-B large Bronze
Cameo Frames, 254-B Bronze leaves and Jump Rings.

Thank you for stopping by and hope that you all have
a nice weekend and doing something fun where you live.
It's basketball playoffs time here so i am sure we will
be watching a few of the games :)  Take care!
