  1. By following the directions below, you will make one earring. Repeat the steps below to make your matched pair. You will also need paper towel for this project to wipe away the excess stamp enamel marker.
  2. If you have never metal stamped before, you will want to watch the video: How to Make a Metal Stamped Cuff Bracelet with ImpressArt Tools. This is a really good overview video which will show you how to use the bracelet guide stickers, how to line up your letters, how to do the stamping, and how to use the stamp enamel marker to make your letters pop.
  3. One special note about this project in particular is that you are creating three lines of words and you will want to do your best to center them on the metal stamping. I used a bracelet guide sticker to make sure that my letters were straight and then I used the actual rays of the sun stamping as a guide to line up my bracelet sticker. I was able to then make sure that it was all straight. Look at the picture and make sure you start by orienting one of the longer sun rays directly at top.
  4. Based upon what you learned in the video, stamp the words "dance with me" on the sun stamping. You will want to stamp it on 3 rows, one for each word.
  5. Next, go over your letters with the stamp enamel marker. After about 1 minute, wipe away the excess marker. Let dry.
  6. Take your hole punch pliers and punch a hole in the top sun ray. You can see how to do this by watching the video: How to Use Eurotool Europunch Metal Hole Punch Pliers Just make sure that you don't punch it too close to the edge and accidentally punch the side of the stamping.
  7. Open your kidney wire hook and slide 2 seed beads onto it and scoot them down so they rest in the little loop area. Next slide on your metal stamped sun followed by 8 more seed beads. The sun should rest in the little crooked loop area.
  8. All done, enjoy!
