I know these wine charms have been around forever but, it was really nice to see that I could incorporate stamping into making my own. For this project you do need some non Stampin’ Up! supplies but chances are you have them around anyway. I simply stamped with Craft Ink onto shrink plastic, punched out the image with our regular Stampin’ Up! punches, pierced a small hole for the jump ring and followed directions for the shrink plastic. Viola the charms were formed. I then took earring wires I had and added eight beads on one side then in the center after applying a jump ring to the charms, I strung on the charm and then an additional eight beads. I tried to color coordinate each charm and beads. Have fun with this one and be careful not to get burned with the hot plastic.
The below (backward) charm image is from the Delightful Decorations Stamp Set which was stamped in Real Red Ink and punched using Stampin’ Up! Ornament Punch. I stamped the image on shrink plastic and baked it in the oven according to the manufacturer’s directions. Both stamp set and punch are on pages 24-25 in the Holiday Mini Catalog.
The wine charm below was stamped in Encore Gold Ink. The image is from the Winter Post Stamp Set page 35 in the Idea Book and Catalog. I then punched it out with the Scallop Circle Punch and baked it.
The below image is from the Sweet Season Stamp Set stamped in Tempting Turquoise Ink. The stamp set is on page 29 in the Idea Book and Catalog. After stamping the image I used the Scallop Circle Punch to punch it out and baked it.
Below I stamped the santa from the Christmas Punch Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink. I then used the Scallop Square Punch to punch it out and baked it.
Once, again, Thanks for stopping by and I sincerely hope you take out time to make some of these projects for you or the special people on your gift list.
