MY Star 60

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, December 7, 2011 @ 7:26 AM | , , , ,

Hi there! Happy Wednesday! I have a bit of exciting news to share ~ today, I have a few of my projects being shared on THE Melissa Frances blog! Pinch me please! I would be tickled pink if you took a peek ~ click HERE. Well, I think I'm nearly finished with making Christmas cards for 2011, believe it or not. Other than a few that need to be hand delivered, I think I made what I actually need NOW I just need to get them off in the mail! (which for most card makers whom I know, seems to be the most difficult part of the process!)
Several months ago, I bought this beautiful metallic star home decor piece at Jo~Ann's Fabric and Craft store. I spotted it amongst the clearanced items for $5.00 , originally $29.99! I grabbed two, one for my home and one for my sweet sister Tina :)
I finally had a chance to take the time to decorate it so with Scott in mind, I sat down and went to work. He could not envision what is was going to look like after I got my hands on it and now, I can't wait to see look on his face when he sees it completed! I combined beautiful patterned paper from the Melissa Frances Deck The Halls 6x6 paper pack along with Waltzingmouse Stamps:
In support of Claire's, (Owner of Waltzingmouse Stamps), current tag challenge, I completed my project with a fun tag. I stamped the beautiful tag image from Very Vintage Christmas and the sentiment from Season of Love - Tags then using a Spellbinders Small Labels die template to cut the image. I attached a few jingle bells that I white washed using Gesso and finished it off the tag with shimmery pretty patterned paper die cut star.
Thanks so much for visiting ~ hope you liked my project! Be Sweet!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Christmas, Season of Love - Tags
Patterned Paper: Melissa Frances Deck The Halls
Dies: Spellbinders Stars Five, Small Labels, Grand Calibur
