If you've been to my Blog before, you KNOW I LOVE to make Jewelry too and being able to get MORE out of my Stamps and Dies just makes me HAPPY!! I also LOVE that I can make Handmade Gifts with stuff I already have on hand and they are SO MUCH more personal and meaningful to give too, because they were HANDMADE by Me!! =)
To make the Sweet Little Earring I've used the AWESOME Snowman Image from the Let It Snow Stamp Set and Stamped it onto some Shrink Plastic using MFT Black Hybrid Ink!! I LOVE this Ink for Stamping onto Ranger Inkssentials Shrink Plastic, but you could also use Staz-on Ink if you have that too!! Then I Die Cut the Image out using the Coordinating Let It Snow Sweet Cuts Die Set!! I decided to cut off the Arms though as they would be HARD to keep from breaking once they shrink!! I added a Hole to the Top of the Snowman Image using the Crop-a-Dile and then I Shrunk them!! I used some Nunn Design Open Frames for the Base of my Earrings!! Then I attached a Jump Ring along with some Nunn Design Silver Plated Flat Cable Chain to create a Dangle!! I wanted a Sweet Little Word Banner to Dangle from the Earrings so I used the Banner from the Let It Snow Sweet Cuts Die Set and cut some Ranger Inkssentials Shrink Plastic!! Then I Stamped the Holidays Word using MFT Hybrid Ink in Black!! I Punched a Hole in the Top using a Crop-A-Dile and then I Cut it down to Size and Shrunk it!! I added a Jump Ring and Attached it to the Chain so it would Dangle from the Earrings!! For some added Sparkle I created some Bead Dangles using some BEAUTIFUL True2 Czech Fire Polished Faceted Round Pastel Aqua Beads and some Silver Head Pins!! I attached them onto the Chain (6 of the for each Earring)!! Then I added the Sweet Silver Bow Charms for a touch of even more Cuteness!! Then the Earring Hooks and my Earrings were done!! I've linked to some Videos to share how to create some of the Simple Techniques if you're New to Jewelry making!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Beadaholique Website/Store!! There's SO MUCH Information and Inspiration if you're NEW to Jewelry Making, but would like to LEARN More about it!!
