Taylored Expressions Designer Dangles - Shape Shifters Die

I am so excited to share a couple more projects I made with the new Shape Shifters Dies from Taylored Expressions.  Check them out here
 I love all three of the Designer Dangles dies TE released last week but Shape Shifter is by far my favorite. These embossed earrings are my new favs. I just love the shape of these dies. 
For detailed instructions check out my video on YouTube:

Taylored Expressions New Designer Dangles Dies

Look at the AMAZING designer dangle dies Taylored Expressions just released today!  Click this link to check them out: I had so much fun playing with the 3 new die sets and new faux leather sets.
I used TE embossing powder (gold & silver) to create these fun earrings. The Bigger the Better dies were used to make the pink and teal earrings along with TE Big Bold Butterfly stamp.  I used the Shape Shifter dies to make the dark purple/silver and fuchsia/gold earrings. 

I have two crafty passions in my life- stamping and beading and these dies bring them both together for me.   I am in love with all the new colors of faux leather.

The basic earrings laying on the flower are probably my favorite. I wear them with everything, they are made with the Shape Shifter dies and Craft Leather - Weave. 

I will share a video soon of how I made some of these earrings.  Thanks for stopping by! Susan

I stepped up the next 2 pair of earring with charms that I purchased at a local scrapbook store (Memory Bound) and from but charms are available at most any craft store. 

I love these gold Lotus charms with the cork.  I also love that they are small because smaller earrings are my go to most days. 
This next pair has to be my favorite, I just really love the…
