Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks: Wine Charms & Rock My World

Welcome back for Day 2 of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions!  Today I have two projects to share with you.  The first uses a die set from a new collection with a wine theme!  I used the Wine Charms to create these wine charms!  When I was thinking about what to use to make the charms a little sturdier, I came up with this.  I took a scrap piece of black cardstock and just pounced the Versamark pad all over it and embossed it in silver.  I did a second coat on top to make sure it was nice and thick.  Then I die cut the charms out of the embossed cardstock.

I used some silver cording on the charms and it makes it very simple to put them on a glass. . .especially if you don't have a fancy charm loop.   I put the charm and cording around the stem and them put the charm THROUGH the cording and pulled.  So, it's kind of a little "slip knot" type attachment.

The second project I have today uses the new Rock My World set!  Rock My World is a fun new set for music lovers of all ages.  The guitar and sentiment on this card are from the set.  I also used two new dies sets on this card. . . Rock On, which coordinates with the previously released You're My Hero set and Just a Note, which has different size music notes.  I used the Rock On die as a silhouette image on this card.  The sentiment was stamped on one of the labels from the new die set, Label It

The papers are from the Sweet Girl Collection from Echo Park.  I added some pink rhinestones on the card for some bling.  This card is perfect for a young girl. . .happy, bright, sparkly and lots going on!   I hope you've enjoyed the new products we've shared today!!  All of these products will be available for purchase on Thursday, November 7th at 7am Pacific!!

Be sure to visit the rest of the Baker's Dozen to see what they've come up with for today!
