For today’s project I used:
659348 Sizzix Framelits Die Set 4PK – Round Bezels, 658312 Sizzix DecoEmboss Die – Weathervane, Vintaj 1-Piece Circle Bezel Decorative Pendant, 32 mm, Ranger VPKR-658312 Sizzix DecoEmboss Die – Weathervane Rusted Hardware Kit, Ranger VPKS Vintaj Glaze/Sealer, 2-Ounce, 29906 Vintaj Relief Block, 29899 Vintaj Head Pins, Vintaj Round Nosed Pliers, Ranger Copper Foil Sheets and my Big Shot.
I die cut the center circle from a Ranger Copper Foil Sheet with 659348 Sizzix Framelits Die Set 4PK – Round Bezels and my Big Shot.
I them embossed with 658312 Sizzix DecoEmboss Die – Weathervane.
I used my finger to dab on some color with 658312 Sizzix DecoEmboss Die – Weathervane and peeled off the backing and adhered it to a Vintaj Circle Bezel Decorative Pendant.
To finish my project I sanded the pendant a bit to let some shine come through the patina with a 29906 Vintaj Relief Block. After sanding I sealed the pendant with Ranger Vintaj Glaze/Sealer. I used Vintaj Round Nosed Pliers and a 29899 Vintaj Head Pin to attach my bead.

I am having so much fun with the Sack It to You die sets from Taylored Expressions that I have another project to share. This time I used the Sack It – Snowman accessory dies and the new Embossing Folder – Zig Zag to make this sweet snowlady with a fancy hat.
I started by cutting Sugar Cube cardstock (you need 2 for the bag) with the Sack It To You die. Assemble your bag.
Next I die cut all the parts. I used Marshmallow Felt for the hat band.
I used the Zig Zag Embossing folder on the hat. Here is my hat assembled. I added a button to the hat band (I sponged all of my pieces with Vintage Photo ink before assembly).
Here is a closer look. I had these cute googly eyes in my stash. I have no idea where they came from. I think they were just waiting for this project.
