Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 2

It's Day Two of sneak peeks for the latest Taylored Expressions releases to be released tomorrow, October 3rd! Today's peeks are of Wings of Joy. If you love bird images, you will LOVE this set!

For my first project, I used one of the Clear Favor Circles to make an ornament. I stamped the birdcage image with Versamark ink inside the favor box then embossed in gold. I then stamped the image on white cardstock, colored, cut out the images and adhered them on top of the embossed gold image. I cut paper from the Christmas Key Ingredients to fit the inside of the favor box. I tied some ribbon through the top and added the sentiment.

For my second project, I used some of the music patterned paper from the Christmas Key Ingredients along with the JOY sentiment. I thought it would work well with a "Joy to the World" type sentiment. . .and you would only know that the music isn't Joy to the World if you read music! LOL I paper pieced the letters and added some Rockin' Pink Sparkly Fluff (from the Christmas Key Ingredients) to the "O". I faux stitched around the music piece using the 6X6 Stitch Doodle Dot Template from The Crafter's Workshop. The finishing touches are the ribbon and the Rhonna Christmas buttons, which are part of the Very Merry Christmas Bundle.

I never would have thought to stamp directly on the bubble package, Charmaine -- that's brilliant and looks wonderful gold embossed! What a sweet & unique ornament!

Doing the bird cage in gold makes it look so real! And I love the sheet music card. You definitely could have fooled me as to which music it is.
