Get Lucky

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
This week we have all of the "Luck" for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Feeling Lucky?  Down on your luck? Personally, I'm in need of a little luck, so I created my own!

I die cut several miniature shamrocks to put in the corked vials.  A little paint on them gives them more dimension and character.  A wee bit of glitter was added to the vial as well. This is a super-easy project that was a lot of fun. If you're interested in constructing these yourselves, I recommend adding a touch of Diamond Glaze clear adhesive to the cork before adhering it to the bottle. It dries crystal clear and prevents wearing your luck all down the front of your shirt. :)
I used memo pins stuck in the cork. The pins were initially too long, but I solved that problem by snipping the ends with Tonic scissors. Small beads from my craft stash were added with a jump ring.  The tiniest vial isn't meant to be worn, it's meant to be kept tucked in a pocket, so it didn't need a necklace. I love the Tim Holtz Apothecary stamp set that I've used here. This set has the fabulous labels that I've used many times and it also has a wonderful script stamp. While I was creating I made the most remarkable discovery....

Feeling Lucky?  Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and you could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp.  A new winner is randomly picked each week.  It could be you! Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our Designer Spotlight.  Good Luck!

  16. I heard a crazy rumor one time that you didn't consider yourself a jewelry artist. Newsflash!!! You nailed this! I absolutely and truly love these little bottles of goodness! So clever and I love how you turned St. Patty's Day modern and stylish. I think you should make jewelry forever and ever now. :) These are seriously stunning!
