DiY: Stamped Valentine Necklace and Giveaway

All right finally I have completed the Valentine's Day project, I've been so busy that I feel like I've been procrastinating on projects. This necklace was fun, because it combines the sequin bead technique and using ink on clay. I learned quite a bit for this project. I love how this necklace came out and how well the stamp technique worked. Which was actually painless compared to how I assumed it wold go. For information about ink and polymer clay, check out this article .

I've started a small stamp collection since I completed this necklace. I want to pick up embossing next. I have several new plans and projects in the works for the upcoming weeks as well. This month has been super busy, but I have enjoyed every minute of it.

New Obsession: Glitter Paint

Cotton Candy Pink Glitter Paint
Oh glitter, where have you been all this time, hiding from my collection of craft supplies. I recently have been collecting colors of Martha Stewart's multi surface glitter paint for various projects. I really like how well it works.

I've only used it on wooden beads so far, but I want to try it on glass, polymer clay and maybe even something tatted. It says if you allow to let it cure for 21 days it becomes dishwasher safe. I forsee glittery mustache necklace and matching mustache coffee cup.

Dress it up with Shoe Clips

The  ballet flats are by Soda, Scout S
in Black Glitter
Here's my newest Instructable! This one is for shoe clips. I used to wear shoe clips when I was little. I remember cute the little bows my mom would buy. I've been dreaming up project with shoes for awhile. I figure I would start small.

I ordered a Deco supply kit, from my friends' shop "My Sister's Treasures," These lovely talented sisters make wonderful jewelry, that sparkles, shines and it is super Girly! They work with Barbie, Hello Kitty and many others.They also are remarkable face painters.

I got my deco supply pack promptly from them in a pretty hand wrapped box. The box included various deco den supplies. I ordered a few so I could really play around. I've also made myself hair bow. I got Hello kitty cabochons, kawaii umbrellas and even a cute skull.
