Karen here and its time for my third, and without a doubt my favourite, project this month using the lovely Full Bloom collection.
I absolutely loved making these little tags. I started by cutting eight 3in x 5in tags from Kaisercraft Premium Ivory cardstock. I then cut a selection of smaller tag shapes and small circles from the 6.5ins x 6.5ins paper pad. I used my Silhouette for this but a similar effect could be achieved by finding a tag template on Pinterest and using that, there are so many to choose from!
I added ‘splodges’ of Vine, Avocado, Berry and Petal Pink ink to my tag using a mini ink blending tool. To this I added some Transparent Gloss texture paste through a Blossom mini stencil. After the texture paste had dried I wiped some of the ink away with a baby wipe which left the ink pattern under the texture paste slightly more vibrant. To this I added a piece of a tag, cut from the 6.5ins x 6.5ins paper pad, a flower border from the sticker sheet ‘Bloom Where You Are Planted’ cut from the Rosebud paper, some elements from the Collectables Pack and ‘Love Always’ from Flourish Pack – Blooming.
I started by adding the black and white striped tag cut from 6.5ins x 6.5ins paper pad, I then added my title and the heart cut from Blooming Foil paper, a piece of a border from the sticker sheet, a bunch of flowers from the Collectables Pack, a heart, which I had coloured with Berry ink and a bird from Flourish Pack – Blooming and three Latte pearls .
After gluing the small flower paper from the 6.5ins x 6.5ins paper pad I cut the bunch of flowers from Blooming Foil paper and added to the centre. Next I added two sentiments from the Collectables Pack and ‘You are my today …’ from the Rosebud paper, three hearts from Flourish Pack – Blooming – inked pink with Berry ink and a heart from the sticker sheet.
I started by adding the lovely gingham paper from the 6.5ins x 6.5ins paper pad and a doily, from my own supplies, then a piece of border sticker from the sticker sheet, and finished with flowers and ‘Blessed’ from the Collectables Pack.
I started by inking through the Blossom mini stencil with Vine, Avocado, Berry and Petal Pink ink, then added a tab from the sticker sheet, ‘The Best is Yet to Come’ from the Rosebud paper and ‘Everyday’ and some flowers from the Collectables Pack and finally embellished with Latte pearls.
First I adhered a piece of green paper from the 6.5ins x 6.5ins paper pad and added a rectangle of paper from the same pad. I cut ‘Love Always’ from the Rosebud paper, added ‘Grateful’ from the Collectables Pack, a ‘washie tape’ sticker and piece of border sticker from the sticker sheet, finally adding a Dusty Pink paper bloom.
To construct my page I used Watermelon Weave cardstock as my base, adding a piece of Florist paper, reverse side, cut to 11.75ins to 11.75ins. I added the pink and black striped sticker from the sticker sheet to the centre of my page, adding three pearls at each end and used my final two tags, which I trimmed and stuck together, for my photo mount.
Well done, if you have ploughed your way to the end of this rather long blog post.
I already have the paper range I am using for August’s creations in my posession and I am just so excited to show you what I have come up with for next month. Until then don’t forget to pop back to see what the ultra talented Chrissy, Emmy and Denise have to show you!
