Jewelry Color Inspiration #30 Submissions

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 Jewelry Color Inspiration Challenge #30 was posted last Sunday and included a jewelry photo, color swatches, and my card along with the link to the website where I found it. Check back later to see the Jewelry Color Inspiration for this week!

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!


To sweeten the inspiration a little, I offered some yummy blog candy to my favorite submission! The blog candy consists of three items from the Sale-a-bration brochure: Delicate Dots Designer Series paper, Polka Dot Punches stamp set, Ribbon Bundle, and a hand-stamped card.

Congratulations Andrea from Germany, you are the winner! I love your card using the Great Friend stamp set...your design and details are amazing! Please email me your mailing address and I'll get your goodies mailed to you!


Thanks to all of you ladies for participating in this "not so easy" Jewelry Color Inspiration #30. The color combination was quite unique and I am inspired by all of your creativity in making these amazing cards!
