Sandra dreams of using wings to fly up to the stars. She created a frame and used the Butterfly Stamp Sets Perspective and Papillon. The Transparent Wings,  Adornments Stars and Arrows fit in perfectly with the Fossilized Amber Embossing Glaze . The Ephemera Field Notes and Quote Chips complete this scene.

Andrea made a colorful quirky tag using Jane Davenport’s Bubble Palace die, Simon Says Stamp’s Mini Stars die, Prima’s Basics Water Soluble Oil Pastels, and just a touch of Tim Holtz’s Label Tape.

Anna-Karin made a scrapbooking page featuring a little star. She used the Darkroom Door Starry Night background stamp together with Ranger’s Flurries embossing powder. The background was then misted with Distress Spray Stains.

Kath created a card dedicated to all the kids who are being little stars coping with the lockdown restrictions despite having to get used to an entirely different daily routine and missing their friends and extended families. She used Tim Holtz Speckled Egg and Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Sprays, Stampers Anonymous Plaid, Falling Stars Layering Stencils and Floral Mini Layering Stencil from Set 25 with Distress Crackle Texture Paste and Distress Embossing Glazes for the background and added an Idea-ology Baseboard Doll, Small Talk Stickers and Simon Says Stamp CZ Designs Miss You die cut for the sentiment.
