These lightweight earrings in wings shapes that are covered with sparkling Mboss embossing powder are easy to make with few steps using Creative MEDIUM. Match them to your favorite outfit or give them as a gift.
Time: 30 minutes plus drying time
Place a thick layer of Creative MEDIUM in the wings molds, covering the area well.
Let it dry.
Remove the wings and lightly color them with StazOn Teal Blue. Repeat process on wings backs side.
Use your VersaMarker to mark around the wings and in the middle. Cover with Mboss embossing powder and heat set. The Creative MEDIUM will get soft with the heat at this point, but it will not affect the end result.
Pinch a small hole to the top of the wings, add a jump ring with some beads and finish with the earring hook.

To be a star yourself, you need extra star shine in your jewelry! Crafting a pair of supersize star shape earrings is easy with Imagine Sheet Metal and the Starstruck foiled paper from Rinea. The Sheet Metal star frames that are created with dies, keep inside the double-sided foiled paper that shows on both sides of the earrings with no extra work. Tear It Tape is a great tool to attach the metal pieces and the paper together. A liquid glue that may leak on in the center. To gift the star shape earrings, create a small pocket with more Rinea foil paper and a small sentiment stamped with VersaFine Clair ink. See how I did it!
Time: 40 minutes
Die cut four star-shaped frames from Imagine’s Sheet Metal using a 2.5-inch and a 1.75-inch star dies.
Die cut 2 Rinea foil paper stars using a 2-inch wide star frame.
Place Tear It Tape around the Sheet Metal star frame on the back side of it.
Set the Rinea foil paper star. It will leave space around it so you can easily glue the second-star frame.
Punch a small hole and add a large jump ring and an earring hook. Repeat on the second earring.
Score a 5×5 piece of cardstock at the lower 2-inch mark, place Tear It Tape on the short sides and fold to make a pocket.
Cut a 1×5 inch piece of Rinea foil, place Tear It Tape and glue on the folded side.
Punch two hole on the main card, leaving 1 ½ in from each side.
Stamp the “Wish” sentiment stamp with VersaFine Clair Purple Delight ink and cut along.
Set a star of Sheet Metal that previously removed to make the frame and the “Wish” stamped paper cutting on the front of the card using Tear It Tape.

Make these quick and easy jewelry pieces out of lightweight clay. The feathers are colored with Memento markers in Angel Pink and Lulu Lavender colors to create contrasting but still matching shades. I decided to use markers instead of ink pads as they can easily color in the fine details of the clay feathers. The clay feathers are covered with gold embossing powder around the edge and on the backside to give a faux metallic case for the feather.
Time: 30 minutes + dry time
Press lightweight clay in the feathers mold and set it aside until it is dried.
Color the clay feathers with the Memento Angel Pink marker and continue with the Lulu Lavender marker following the pattern of the feather.
Press the back side of the feather on the VersaMark inkpad, cover with Imagine gold embossing powder and heat set. Repeat the process with the second feather. To give a bit of extra shine, emboss the edges of the clay feather.
Color a couple of same size white feathers with the Memento Lulu Lavender marker. Let them dry well.
Cover the clay feathers with the Creative Medium Iridescent Blue to protect the colors and to add effect.
Attach earring clasps and jump rings.
