...2nd post today - Yonder Star

Good evening, this is my second post of the day. We're previewing Yonder star and Yonder star background - one of our new HUGE background stamps (releasing on Friday) - no more lining up!!!

I used the Yonder star set together with Way out west for this gift set. I had little star shaped iced cookies and I popped them into a Kilner jar and dressed it up. The sentiment gives away the Christmas theme and I stamped my star (Way out West) above the cactus landscape (Way out west) I added a little glow to my star with a halo from Little lanterns.

For my jar tag I stamped the sentiment onto a small aged metal tag that I had and slung it over a larger manilla tag, which had been stamped with the scene. I liked the distressed look of the white ink on the metal, if you are doing something similar, but want a stronger look, simply emboss the sentiment with white powder.

I dressed up the jar with some tweedy fabric and trimmed out a patch to match for my card. I used pretty much the same elements with the addition of a piece of green ric rac, I love big ric rac! A very simple understated set, which all hinges on that little sentiment.

Here are the DT ladies who are also previewing today if you haven't been over already!

Back in the morning with some more eye candy! hope it tickles!
