DSC_0271 One of the fun things about Stampin' Up!'s Simply Adorned charms is how quickly you can turn out a mini art piece!

This is the 1" x 1-1/4" beveled glass front charm, suitable for a necklace (a bit on the big side for a bracelet!)  I used a scrap of the Brushed Metallic Silver cardstock for the inset.  I first stamped CREATE and the images (in the corners) from the Charming set in classic inks, and set aside to dry for a few seconds while I found my Embossing Buddy.  I then used the Embossing Buddy on the cardstock to ensure that my silver embossing powder would only stick to the script that I stamped in Versamark ink.  (Ummm ask me how I figured I should do that…this was my second try at the charm!!! LOL) Once heat embossed, I got a lovely dimensional feel to the charm.  I cut the scrap to size (literally 1" x 1-1/4" exactly) and then added an extra small Paper Daisy. I had used the Versamarker to apply a dot in the centre & heat embossed with silver EP to give the flower more definition without adding bulk.  Then I simply popped my mini work of art into the charm and I was done – easy to change out whenever I choose!  If you have any questions about the Simply Adorned line, please feel free to contact me.
