Jewelry Color Inspiration #30

Anyone who knows me also knows that have an obsession for stamping and for JEWELRY! I enjoy participating in other stamping challenges and want to share the fun by offering my own weekly Jewelry Color Inspiration challenge. The challenge will be posted each Sunday and will include a jewelry photo along with the link to the website where I found it.

If you want to play along, simply make a paper project (card, scrapbook page, or 3D item) that includes the colors indicated with the jewelry piece. (If you don't have the exact colors, just use ones that are similar:) Then, submit your creation to me by Saturday, April 4th at 11:59 P.M. using the Mr. Linky box at the end of this posting. You may also wish to post your photo at Splitcoaststampers.com using the keyword JCI.

Those of you who participate in the challenge will receive recognition the following Sunday...so what are you waiting for...join the fun! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

BLOG CANDY

To sweeten the inspiration a little, I am offering some yummy blog candy to my favorite submission! The blog candy consists of three items from the Sale-a-bration brochure that expires on March 31st. The winner will receive Delicate Dots Designer Series paper, Polka Dot Punches stamp set, Ribbon Bundle, and a hand-stamped card. Good luck, stampers!



I know what some of you may be thinking..."I would never have put these colors together to make a card"...well, neither would I have. I am always looking for unique color combinations in jewelry pieces that I find online and this one definately fit the test! I was drawn to this necklace and kept going back to it on my search for your jewelry inspiration this week. I found this Neon Lights Wrap Necklace at Jenny Sue Jewelry etsy shop. The talented designer is a Speech-Language Pathology grad student who makes jewelry on the side. Go check Jenny Sue's shop for some fantastic jewelry pieces.





Here is the card that I was inspired to make. I had some retired Parisian Summer Designer Series Paper that has not only the Bravo Burgandy color, but a lovely damask print on it. The card base is Going Gray with a double image from the Very Versatile stamp set which will be available on April 1st in the Occasions Mini catalog. The greeting, from Sweet Sentiments, says it all because I continue to be inspired by all of you who participate in my jewelry challenges. The Whisper White Satin ribbon and Jumbo grommet will also be available in the Occasions Mini on April 1st...I love pairing them together. I used a strip of Yoyo Yellow with a scalloped edge to peek out under the ribbon treatment for just a little pop! Can't wait to see what you all come up with! Happy stamping and thanks for taking a gander at this week's Jewelry Color Inspiration #30!

Well, Stacey, I sat back and said, "Ain't no stinkin; way she's gonna make these colors work!" BUT somehow you did! AWESOME! I gotta think on this a while. I don't even think I have any CS even remotely close to those colors.
