Designer Tip: I used Jet Black StazOn® ink to color the silver ball chain, jump rings, Silver Petite Dazzles, and heart bail, then used a cosmetic sponge before the ink dried to buff the color to match the bezel.



  1. 1) Use the smallest rectangle die to die-cut a Grapefruit dark pink rectangle. Spread glue stick over the paper to seal the pink side and let dry. Ink the words and heart stickers with St?zOn® Jet Black ink, the buff the color with the cosmetic sponge before it dries completely. Add the words to the paper rectangle as shown. Glue the rectangle centered inside the smallest rectangle bezel. Squeeze a small amount of 3-D Crystal Lacquer into the bezel and tilt to reach sides and corners, covering evenly. Place flat and let dry overnight.
  2. 2) Ink the ball chain, 2 jump rings, and a heart bail with St?zOn® Jet Black ink and buff with the cosmetic sponge as you did for the stickers. Add a jump ring and bail to the bottom loop of the rectangle. Add a second jump ring to the top loop and place the ball chain through the jump ring. Use 1/8" wide black grosgrain ribbon to tie a small bow. Zot or glue the bow between the bezel and bail as shown.
