Charmed, I'm sure....part #2

Thought I would update the charms I shared yesterday that are heading to "Cloth, Paper, Scissors" magazine for their charm swap. I came up with a nifty way to package them I think. I used various copper ATC blanks I had and cut them in half (making Moos). I stamped "ART" on them with Black Stazon ink using one of my very fave stamps from Ma Vinci's Reliquary. http://mavinci.net/ Robin has the absolute best stamps on the net, IMHO!! If you're looking for OOAK alphabets.....check out her wares!! You will not be disappointed. Here's a link to the Codex word "ART" stamp I used and WOW it's on sale too. http://mavinci.net/id16.html

Then I punched a hole using a 1/16" round punch followed by my Stampin' Up half round slit punch to make a flap. This allowed me to slip the jump ring through the hole and allow the charm to dangle on the Moo card. I then backed it with a piece of black cardstock. Voila!! Finished presentation, simple yet effective

I also included a shot of the fun envie I stamped to send them in. I have not really stamped much in a long time....it was refreshing. Anywho.....that's it from me today. I'm busy packaging up some other mingles I want to get into today's mail!! Later Taters!!
