BIG Ole CU Gem Set

Well I had a lot of fun playing with the gems yesterday and I did tell you that there would be more to come and today's freebie is HUGE. In the .zip are 10 different shaped gems in 10 different colors. Also included is a silver and gold frame for each shape that you can put on the gem and a frame template so you can choose your own layer style to apply to the setting for your gem. I told you it was big! Each gem is about the same size as shown on the preview and how it would look on a 3600 x 3600 layout. I did resize the round one down for the preview. And I got lazy with some of the shapes. I started with a hard chisel bevel on a couple of the shapes but then figured you can add your own bevels to the jewels to get the look you want. I have plans to make some different settings (like yesterday's sick pin) for the jewels too so keep an eye out for them in the future! Also, feel free to recolor the "diamond" color one to match your layouts or kits too! I really think these jewels turned out pretty and am so thankful I found angelize's fantastic Filter Forge filter to make them! Click on the preview for a big close-up pic of the gems.
Thanks also to all of you who provided feedback on my elements. I am very perplexed about how the elements are distorted for one reader and not the rest of you but I will continue to make my elements as I have been and hope that we figure it out eventually!

Thanks so much for these wonderful gems!!!!! Great job!!!!
I gotta look into Filter Forge ... :-)
As for the elements getting distorted or pixelated ... enlarging ANYTHING will often do that. And doubling it's size???? What does she expect? How big would she want buttons to be??????? Sorry, but I don't get this "complaint". And I don't think you should worry about it either. :-)
