Fabulous is what you are!

For my shares today I wanted to start with a framed art piece I created using the gorgeous 'Winter Frost' designer series paper. I stamped my sentiment Fabulous is what you are and cut out with the 'Ovals Collection' framelits and matted onto the 'Labels Collection' framelits. I added some Rhinestones and punched out glimmer paper stars for even more shine! I made a coordinating dress for my dress form from the 'Dress up' framelits. This would make a nice gift for someone you know that is FABULOUS! 

My next share is ... Paper Earrings?!

I absolutely love the gold and silver foil sheets - they look so much like a thin metal like they use for jewelry findings. So I thought why not make some earrings!! Now these earrings are not meant to last forever, they are made of paper so you can't get them wet - but they are very pretty. For the first pair I punched 4 Silver Foil 3/4" Circles, 4 Gold Foil 1" Circles and 4 Silver Foil 1 1/4" Circles to make 1 pair. I attached the circles together, then punched the holes for my jump rings. I think these earrings are stunning and  Unless you knew they were made of paper, you wouldn't be able to tell.

This next pair of earrings I punched 2 Gold Foil 3/4" Circles, 2 Silver Foil 1" Circles, 2 Gold Foil 1 1/4" Circles and 4 Silver Foil 1 3/8" Circles. The largest circles were attached together so the back is consistent with the front. I layered all of the circles so that they were closer to the of the circle. I then took my paper piercer and mat and pierced a hole - then I knew where to line up my punch for perfect alignment.

 Frosted Finishes Embellishments really do make beautiful jewelry. The first time I saw these gorgeous embellishments I knew they'd make stunning jewelry. I made a bunch of necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets with them. Photos never seem to do them justice, once you see them in person the sparkle and shine from the rhinestones is very beautiful.
 I hope you like my shares, happy stamping :)
