Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks: Christmas Gift Tags and Watercolor Card

Hello everyone and welcome to day two of the Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks!! Didn't you just love all the fab goodies we showed you yesterday!!! We have more to show you today...I just know you are going to love everything!! Don't forget...the November Release is Thursday, November 5th at 7:00 AM PST (9:00AM CST). Also...

Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways!! Visit the TE Blog each sneak Peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win!! 

My first project features one of the 3x4 Watercolor Panels - Keep in Touch. It was colored with Zig Watercolor Markers and small black pearls were added to the flower centers. 

It was adhered to the background patterned paper and the little pink banners cut with the Stitched Banner Dies were added at the bottom. The previously released Small Scalloped Border was used to cut the Oreo scalloped edge and the twine finished it off. 

For my second project, I made a set of Christmas tags. 

The little charms were cut out of patterned paper with the Holiday Charms dies. Thick glue was then added with glitter sprinkled on top. The tag was cut out of Buttercream Frosting cardstock with the previously released Build a Tag 1 die set and embossed with the On the Spot Embossing Folder. The sentiment is from the Sealed with Love Stamp Set and the twine is the finishing touch.

The previously released Build a Tag 1 tag was cut out of Toffee cardstock,  embossed with the previously released Winter Flurry Embossing Folder, and a white craft ink pad was run over the raised part of the embossing to add color to the snowflakes. The Santa hat from the previously released Roly Poly - Santa die set was used for the hat and glitter was added to the white brim and ball tassle. The sentiment is from the P.S. You're Welcome stamp set and the googly eyes and twine finish it off. 

The third tag was cut out of patterned paper with the previously released Build a Tag 1 die set, the scalloped layer was cut out of Cherry Pop cardstock and the sentiment from P.S. You're Welcome was stamped on the Sugar Cube layer. The snowflake was cut out of Granny Smith cardstock  with the Holiday Charms set and the previously released Tag Reinforcement die was also used.
