7/17/22 Rising Star at A Place To Start!

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a great weekend and it’s not too hot where you are! I think it’s pretty hot everywhere, lol! Our A/C is working overtime for sure! I haven’t been in my studio too much since our little feline girl Puff-Puff was injured. She was in the hospital for eight days and since coming home a week ago, she’s doing pretty well and I’m feeling more like crafting. I pulled out my Spellbinders Damask Daydream Kit of the Month from July 2021 and whipped up a pretty inspirational tag today while watching a suspense thriller on Lifetime. Yeah, the hubs laughs at me for watching the LMN channel, lol!

I used quite a few items from the kit – cardstock and patterned papers, a floral corner die, a number of die cut shapes, gemstones and foam squares. I started by adhering coordinating patterned papers to a Ranger distress tag and built it up from there, layering a die cut floral corner and a bunch of die cut shapes. I popped some of the die cut shapes up on foam squares for dimension, and added several gemstones. Gotta have some bling!

I created a hole reinforcement for the top using Stampin’ Up 1/2″ and 1/4″ circle punches and light purple cardstock. I threaded some pretty purple twill ribbon through the hole and tied it with some gold metallic string (both from Really Reasonable Ribbon).

And one more peek… I really love how this turned out! The most fun was picking out all the items I wanted to use and then watching it come together! And I love a green and purple color combo… one of my favorites!
