My WOW Creation! Holiday Earrings!!

Many of you will have already received your new holiday mini catalogue in the mail (and if you haven' me and we can get one to you!).  You can start placing orders from this holiday catalogue beginning on Aug 1.  As a demonstrator, I was able to pre-order items and it felt like Christmas when my box of pre-order stuff arrived last Thursday evening.   Of course, that didn't leave me much time to "play" since I was leaving Monday morning for Convention.  But I had an idea of something I wanted to try and lo and behold, it worked pretty much exactly as I'd hoped.  Check out the earrings I made using the new stamps and framelits!!!

Supply List
Stamps - Ornament Keepsakes, Scentsational Season
Paper - Whisper White
Ink - Pacific Point, Gumball Green, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise
Big Shot - Holiday Ornament Framelits, Holiday Collection Framelits
Tools and Accessories -Tombow Multi Liquid Adhesive, Dazzling Diamonds (only on the Christmas trees)

This is how I assembly line made these little darlings .....

I needed 5 of each shape to make a single earring.  So I needed 10 images to make a pair.  Obviously I needed to find some way to expedite the process so here is what I came up with.  I stamped 10 white sheets with this arrangement of images.

I managed to place them so that I could fit all 5 framelits on at the same time and get all 5 to cut out with a single pass through the Big Shot

And then once cut-out, see how the white card is left with the cutest little frame of cut-out images?    -- I see cards coming up using this white "negative" frame!!
More how-to photos will follow once I get home.  And you may be able to figure it out just by seeing these photos.  But in the meantime, I wanted to show you the lovely little holiday earrings I was able to create with our amazing new Stampin' Up! products.

I brought some of these little beauties with me to Salt Lake City.  I have some very talented ladies who I will get to share a stage with when we present our class on Friday and Saturday mornings...I'm hoping they all have pierced ears!  And I also have some room mates here that I'd like to thank for putting up with me and not laughing as I talk in my sleep.  Same hope.....I made them a pair each, hoping they share my delight in Christmas earrings!!

Hope everyone is enjoying their week.  I am having an absolute blast here at Convention!!
God Bless you all,      ~Cynthia      <><
