Jewelry Color Inspiration #45 & GIVEAWAY

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, July 18th 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.

This beautiful necklace, Purple Amethyst & Ruby Red Chandelier Crystal Necklace, is from "Jan Finnell is Over the Top" at 1000 Markets. I love the rich tones of this sparkling piece!



The Stampin' Up! colors that I'll be using for my inspiration card are the new In Color, Rich Razzleberry, and three classic colors, Ruby Red, Lavender Lace & Whisper White. Feel free to use similar shades if you don't have these exact colors:)





This sketch, Fall-To Layout #50, is from the Clean & Simple Stamping blog. I used the Out of the Box hostess stamp set to ink up the wee flowers in Ruby Red, Rich Razzleberry & Lavender Lace. Then, I punched the flowers out with the 1" Circle punch and placed an Ice Circle Rhinestone brad through each blossom. The background pattern is from the Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper. The main panel was then wrapped with a little bit of Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot ribbon.



Stamsp: Out of the Box (Level 1 Hostess), Short & Sweet
Paper: Lavender Lace, Rich Razzleberry, Ruby Red, Whisper White CS, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP
Ink: Lavender Lace, Rich Razzleberry, Ruby Red
Other: Scallop Border & 1" Circle punches, Mat Pack, Paper Piercing Tool, Ice Circle Rhinestone Brads, Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals


RANDOM WINNER

The JCI submissions have all been so wonderful, it's difficult to narrow down a favorite; so from now on, there will be a random winner. The winner of the JCI45 will receive a package of Rich Razzleberry 8 1/2 X 11 cardstock! You will love this yummy new Stampin' Up! In Color! Good luck everyone and have fun creating!



Mr. Linky is not currently working, so please leave a link to your JCI45 project in the comments section. Thanks!

Fabulous color combo! I substituted Elegant Eggplant for the Rich Razzleberry, since I don't have any of it yet. Hoping I might win a package... :)

Hi Stacey,
Looks like Mr Linky is enjoying his weekend!
Here's my entry this week - we don't have Rich Razzleberry yet so I had to use Perfect Plum

I love that wonderful color combo. I need to make a card without using Rich Razzleberry, because we have no In-Colors. I used another "berry" Cardstock. Here is my card.

Here is my card!

I bit the bullet and played along despite having only white for a color....it was a fun one! Hopefully I'll be randomly selected so I can get at least one of the colors. Thanks for the inspiration as always.
