 I'm SO EXCITED to share what I've made for today!! I've made a Card, 2 Pairs of Earrings and the Gift Packaging for them!! Let's start with the Shaker Card first!! I've used the New Sweater Weather Stamp Set an the Coordinating Sweater Weather Die Set along with the Whispering Pines Stamp Set!!

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE these Sweet Images and thought it would be FUN to create a Shaker Card!! There are so MANY Possibilities with this Set and I thought it would make a SWEET Holiday Card!! I Stamped and Embossed my Images onto some Distress Watercolor Paper and then Die Cut them out using the Coordinating Sweater Weather Die Set!! I've used a Memory Box Heart Cross Stitched Die to Create the Window and added the Acetate!! Then I've used the Whispering Pines Stamp Set to Stamp and Emboss the Background with some Snow for the Background!! I LOVE the way it turned out!!
Next I have two Pairs of Bear Earrings!! SQUEAL!! These make me SO HAPPY!! I'm a Country Girl through and through and these just Speak to me!! I've used the AMAZING Serene Silhouettes Stamp Set and the Coordinating Serene Silhouettes Die Set to create my Earring and then I've used the Tag Sampler Stamp Set and the Coordinating Tags Times Two Die Set to create my Tags and the Winston's Home for Christmas Stamp Set for my Sentiments!!

I've used the Dies to Die Cut the Sweet Bear Shapes from some Ranger Vintaj Copper Sheet Metal Sheets (they also have a Silver Sheet Metal too if Copper isn't your thing) or you can use Copper Metal Sheets too if you don't want to mess with removing the Adhesive on the back of the Ranger Sheet Metal!! Then I Stamped and Embossed the Image onto one of the Die Cuts using Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and my Mini Misti Stamping Tool!! I then covered the Image with some Ranger Clear Embossing Powder and Heat Set it!! I LOVE the Look it gives to the Image!! I then used some Nunn Design Antique Copper Open Frame Hoops for the Base of my Earrings!! I used some Copper Nunn Design Flat Cable Chain for the Dangle to connect to my Bear using Copper Jump Rings to connect everything together!! To add some Sparkle I created some True2 Czech Fire Polished Glass 2mm Crystal Copper Rainbow Bead Dangles and attached them to the Copper Chain!! It's SO BEAUTIFUL in real life!! For the Simple Bear Earrings I just used the Die Cut Copper Bears and then added some Swarovski Crystal Bicone 3mm Turquoise AB Beads for some Sparkle!! I Stamped and Embossed the Tags and then used some Copper Embossing Powder to Emboss the Sentiment and the Bear Image to coordinate with my Earrings!! I just LOVE the Simple Designs and CAN'T WAIT to give these as Gifts for the Holidays!! =)
