And now... A bit about my project. 
I have a big problem with throwing away beautiful packages. I just can't do it. So, then my large tip Nuvo Glue Pen arrived, I knew, I have to do something with it's cardboard piece. Here it is - a winter tag.

I used a stamp from Christmas Tags #2 Set. It's stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Silver Detail Embossing Powder. It is cut out with Spellbinders Circle die. Some coloring is done  with light blue Promarker and edge of the circle is inked with Broken China Distress Ink. To the big snowflake I added Small Nuvo Glue Pen and Princess Elsa Frozen glitter from Frozen glitter set. I also added Dazzling Blue dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Behind the stamped circle I added lots of die cut pieces: Queen Anne's Lace by Signature Dies (die cutted out of white cardstock, some coloring added with pink Promarker), Elegant Scrollwork by Memorybox (die cutted out of white cardstock, inked with Versamark ink, heat embossed with Silver Detail EP), Snowflake Border (6002/2021) by Joy! Crafts (die cutted out of  Sticker Paper, covered with Princess Elsa Frozen glitter from Frozen glitter set), Trellis Circle by Tonic Studio (die cutted out of  Sticker Paper, covered with Ballerina Microfine Glitter) and Twilight Snowflakes by Memorybox (die cutted out of Sticker Paper, covered with Princess Elsa Frozen glitter from Frozen glitter set and Reflection Microfine Glitter).

I also added some same elements to bottom left corner.

First thing I did with the tag was I added some color to it. I spritzed the background with Caribbean Blue Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. For my surprise, after it was dry, it didn't smudge. Then I cut few small holes to Drywall Tape and adhered it to the tag to act like a mask. Then I added  White Dreaweaver Embossing Paste on top, removed the tape and covered paste with Silver Detail EP. After paste was dry, I used heat tool to melt the powder. 

Here is photo of the packaging. I love the silver foiling on the edges and this lovely flourish. How can you throw away something so pretty... By the way. You don't need to by the Large Nuvo Glue Pen to get it. It also comes with Medium tip Nuvo Glue Pen.

Here is final look to my tag. To finish up my tag, I added some dots with different Nuvo Crystal Drops (Gloss White, Dazzling Blue, Sherbert Shimmer). And pink ribbon was tied on top. 

The next stop on our blog hop is Chris. Enjoy!
