Charming Chains ... Antique Bronze Blue and Cream Roses

Introducing the latest embellishment range designed and made by my2angels.

Here is the first TWO from our range ...

$2.99 includes a Charming Chain and complimenting pearl dangle


$3.30 includes a Charming Chain and complimenting pearl dangle

Whether you add them to your Off the Page project or book mark, use them as the centerpiece for a card

or make them a feature embellishment for a layout, charming chains will provide you with a beautiful and unique handmade embellishment to adorn your project.

Hang them off a tag, or staple them to a folded paper corner; dangle them from a cluster of flowers or tie them to a chipboard swirl - there is no limit to the places you can embellish with a charming chain.

Here is a layout using the Cream Flower Charming Chain with Prima Botanical My Love pattern papers ( BTW is currently on special at 78c per sheet)

The paper doilies and Vanilla Creme cardstock have been ink blended with Aged Mahogany and Walnut Stain (LOVE my ink blending tool!) to achieve a softer look

Close ups

Recently a friend of mine's dog had to be put down, after being part of their family for over 10 years.  I really wanted to let her know that I was thinking of her, but me not being much of a card making, I decided to give her a bunch of flowers, but one that she can keep ... so using a Scrapware scalloped gift bag painted with Picket Fence Crackle Paint and adding Vintage Photo Distress Ink to it I gave her this ....

and our new Cream Rose Charming Chain(cutting some of it off and just using the pendant and some chain)

Plus free branches from the tree in the back yard which I "hot glue gunned" Cream roses onto

Lastly I did a light spray of Antique Brass Glimmer Mist (if you click on the close up photo it will give you a larger photo) and you will see the glimmer ... so pretty!

In the cluster with our Blue Flower Bronze Charming Chain is a cream felt heart, Forever Tag Charm, Adore Pin (inked with Vintage Photo) and a Blue Tip Flower

This was a great layout to use up all those "X"s I had lying around.  

Oh and the large X in the background!  It is a Making Memories Chipboard Letter X and only 80c each
It was inked and stamped with Tim Holtz Reinkers .... with Vintage Photo and Antique Linen... see tutorial here)

Over the next week we will be introducing to you the complete range of charming chains (including a Christmas range)

And then at the end of the week you will have a chance to win the complete collection
(I will have to make sure I keep some aside LOL we have already sold a quarter of our stock from customers and class attendees visiting us in the past week!)

You can order your charming chains here

See you in a few days with more previews
