So if you missed out you can find out more about it here!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE to use my Products to make Gifts and the Holidays are a PERFECT time to pull them out and use them in yet another AWESOME Way!! I started with the Gift Tag and used the Let It Snow Stamp Set along with the coordinating Let It Snow Sweet Cuts Die Set to Stamp and Die Cut the Sweet Snowman and Bird Images using Distress Markers to Color (Tumbled Glass, Black Soot, Ground Expresso, Carved Pumpkin and Candied Apple) on the Stamps and then Stamping them onto some Distress Watercolor Paper!! I then took a Water Brush and went over some of the Lines to add alittle bit of Watercolored Texture!! I wanted the Snowman to have some Sparkle so I added some of the BEAUTIFUL Ice Chips Glitter!! I LOVE the FUN texture and Sparkle it adds to the Sweet Image!! I also added some to the Ground so it looks like Real Snow!! I Die Cut a Tag Image and Watercolored the Background and then added some of the Pretty Snowflake Images form the Let It Snow Set!! I did the same Technique of Coloring on the Stamp with my Distress Markers using (Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans) to get a FUN Tie Died look!! Then I Embossed them using Clear Embossing Powder!! I added the Sentiment in Black Onyx Versa Fine Ink and then Embossed it using Clear Embossing Powder!! For the Back of the Tag I used the Merry & Joy Stamp Set and Stamped and Embossed the To and From!! Then I repeated the Snowflakes the same way I did them on the Front of the Tag to add some Color and FUN to the Back of the Tag too!!
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 hope you give this SWEET Gift Set a try and if you do I hope you’ll share what you make with us on Social Media!! We LOVE LOVE LOVE to see what you create using the AMAZING Honey Bee Stamps Products!!
