I am really thankful for my faithful Stamp Club members! They come at least once a month to our Technique Night classes and many of them come more often than that. They have committed to spending $20 minimum a month for 12 months and then each of them has an assigned month where they will win the Host Stampin' Rewards for the total of everyone's orders! We have become good friends and I look forward to Stamp Club night each month.
This month is our Christmas Party and, along with stamping some great projects, we also have games, prizes and more food than usual. It's a lot of fun! Each year I make my stamp club members and my down line little tokens of my appreciation for their loyalty and support. It usually involves candy and some jewelry fashioned from whatever the Christmas embellishments are for that year. This year I continued with the black, white and gold theme and came up with these designs.
My downline members get earrings and a necklace, my stamp club members get the earrings and ordinary attenders get the little reindeer paperclip along with all the candy to fill the Fry Box.
These were made with the Winter Wonderland Embellishments and the Fry Box Bigz L die and decorations made from the retired Snow Flurry Bigz die, which I am glad I kept!
The white snowflake is die cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper while the black on is from Basic Black card stock like the fry box (which is SOOO easy to put together - two strips of fast fuse is all it takes!) I like the Bigz dies because you can cut two or three layers at once - two is better - and for a project where I need to make multiple items, it saves a lot of time.
The gold label is a two inch strip of Gold Foil Sheet punched at both ends with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.
I bought the jewelry findings at a local craft store and it was simple to put together the earrings and necklace ensemble. I found that because the embellishments are a little smaller this year, I needed to use the tip of my closed Paper Snips to clear and widen one of the holes on the embellishment so it would be wide enough to fit the wires or split rings through.
My 1/16" inch Circle Punch came in handy to make the little holes through which to attach the earrings to the panel.
