Happy 2018, everyone! Let's hope this year is much better than the last. This first week of January brought us a significant snowfall along with extremely cold temperatures. I was very happy to see the snow, especially watching it from the warmth and comfort of being indoors!
Today, I am sharing a new tag which, I think, the sentiment is a perfect theme for this new year--kindness can change the world. When I saw this beautiful collection from Stamperia called "Blue Stars", I just had to have it. And, of course, this particular sentiment just spoke to me.
The tag shape was cut from a cereal box and covered with the papers. The edges were inked and distressed. The frame die, which was a gift to me, is from Studio Light. I used it to frame one of the journaling cards. I cut a star shape from the collection, outlined it with Mercury Glass Stickles, and added it with a pop dot to the heart. Cheesecloth was tucked under the frame. The little girl was fussy cut from the papers and popped up with foam tape for dimension. Isn't she so sweet? Wink of Stella was applied to her crown and wings and a string of pearls attached to the base of the crown. She is standing on a word tile surrounded by tiny flowers from Tim Holtz. Lace, bead and rhinestone trims were placed across the bottom of the tag. The wooden stars are from Recollections. Liquid Pearls in Platinum were added here and there. A piece of blue seam binding and white cording was tied to the top.
I've made another tag from this collection which I will share another time. Stamperia papers are a wonderful quality and the patterns are beautiful. If you click on each photo, you can see the details better.
Well, that's it for me today. I hope your new year is off to a good start and I wish you all good health and happiness. Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate all your kind comments.
