Hey, crafty friends! I am excited to introduce another guest designer to you today who put together some amazing earring designs to share with you using the new Designer Dangles products: Beth Duff. Beth is the designer behind The Snarky Stamper on Facebook and Instagram and she is the founder of Unstoppable Retreats. Beth is an amazing cardmaker, paper crafter, and mixed media artist. Beth thinks the best part about crafting and doing art is embracing the mess and working through “failures” to find something beautiful.

Let’s take a look at the 11 (wow!) different Designer Dangles earring designs that Beth created:

One thing I really love about Beth’s designs is how she added some unique and beautiful effects to the craft leathers using inks, paints, and more.

The earrings on the left are die cut with the Designer Dangles – The Bigger The Better dies from the flat textured craft leather in the Burnished set. She added different inks to the metallic surface to create a gorgeous dark, multi-colored look. As the light catches the earrings, the different colors shimmer and shine on the metallic craft leather.

The earrings in the middle are created with the lighter gold craft leather in the Burnished set that is inked with a teal ink and die cut with the Designer Dangles – The Bigger The Better dies. Beth layered a smaller shape on top that is inked like the earrings on the left. This pair of earrings is one of my favorites!

For the earrings on the right, Beth inked different craft leather textures with purple ink tones and die cut them with the Designer Dangles – The Bigger The Better dies. She layered them together and the results are stunning! I love the iridescent shine so much on this pair!

I love the bright colors in this next set of earrings and Beth had some more fun decorating the craft leathers and creating some unique designs!

The set on the left uses the feather shape from the original Designer Dangles die collection cut from cork craft leather layered over a turquoise craft leather tear drop shape that is die cut with the Designer Dangles – The Bigger The Better dies.

For the earrings in the middle, Beth added black paint to the pink craft leather from the Colorful set. She die cut the painted craft leather with the Designer Dangles – The Bigger The Better dies and added a few more layers at the top of the earring with the original Designer Dangles dies.

The earrings on the right have a base die cut with the Designer Dangles – The Bigger The Better dies from the lighter gold craft leather. Beth masked the top of the shape and then added color to the bottom of the tear drop with blue and green inks. She layered a shape at the top of the earrings that is die cut from the cork craft leather using the original Designer Dangles dies.

This next trio of earring are all created with the Designer Dangles – Shape Shifter die collection. I love all of the different looks Beth made with this one set of dies!

The earrings on the left uses the long skinny rectangle die from the Designer Dangles – Shape Shifter die collection cut from eggplant craft leather from the Colorful set and the angled rectangles are die cut from another craft leather that Beth added color to with some ink.

For the pair in the middle, Beth die cut the long skinny rectangle in the Designer Dangles – Shape Shifter die collection three times and then fanned them out when she attached them to the earring wire for a fun fringy look.

The earrings on the right are created with the chevron shapes in the Designer Dangles – Shape Shifter die collection. Beth used jump rings to attach the chevrons together to create the multi-tiered design.

The final earring design pairs that I have to share with you today have some fun whimsical shapes and details!

The earrings on the left are created with the Designer Dangles – Free Flow die collection. Beth used the pink and turquoise from the Colorful craft leathers set and layered them with an inked metallic craft leather.

For the pair on the right, Beth had fun playing with the chevron shapes in the Designer Dangles – Shape Shifter die collection and turned them different directions at the top of the earring design. She layered a feather shape over the top that is die cut with the original Designer Dangles die collection.
