May 1st Hearts of the west Blog Hop

Our fearless leader Nancy Klein chose our first color challenge, Buttercup, Sorbet, New England Ivy, Gypsy and lagoon as well as the basic color pallet.  

This is a circular blog hop, so matter where you start if you keep going you will end back where you started and you can find a full list at the end of this post, just in case.

If you came from  Diane Fischer from Paper Crafters Sorority then you're in the right order. 

Here is my cute little project, it is a wonderful quick base and bling necklace. This fun necklace features a peacock feather center that is a sticker that coordinates with the base and bling line from Close to My heart (of course!) 

I use pliers and took off the 2" of extra chain from the top and attached to the side of the pendant with the chain and hung a key and owl, also from the base and bling line

A close up of the pendant and hanging embellishments. Did you notice the cute card it is hanging on? I cut it from the Artiste at 3". the chain hangs in a little bag inside the stamped package with coordinating washi tape.

Keeping with the color pallet, i made this cute card for a family member. Everything is also Close to my Heart and other then the sliver trim it is all scraps. yay!! use them scraps!

Also if you're wondering, yes i did use the wrong yellow (opps) all my projects even the card.... if not then carry on and forget i said anything  :-)

I'm such a necklace lover, I can't believe I haven't made one of ours yet! You've done an awesome job with both the necklace and the packaging! Love it! I actually didn't notice you used a different colour of yellow, it fits in there perfectly!

Janet McCormick said...

So pretty, Chantal!! The necklace is beautiful and I love how you used the colours on the cards.

Donna said...

Great project. I love the idea of cutting off the extra chain to hand the pendants...brilliant!

Chelsey Vorosmarty said...

Beautiful projects! The necklace is so sweet and I love the idea of making a nice card to hang it on. That makes a way better gift than just sticking it in a box!

Freya said...

Love it!!

Nancy K said...

Fabulous card Chantal! Love how you made a card that you can add the necklace to!

Michelle Olson said...

I love this idea! I am in love with our Base and Bling line and have made many necklaces, but I have always just put them in a box. Creating a card to give and display it on adds another personal element to the gift - so fantastic!!

2 very wonderful projects! I love the way you used the subtle images behind the necklace - each color there but not over powering and tying in to really make you notice the colors inside. The color blocks on your card are perfect.
