Hi… well these tags were actually my first play with both the Pierced Blooms dies and also the In Bloom stamps and I made them a few weeks ago, but they only went out of my house yesterday and wanted them to be received before I blogged about them.
I used some white card which I had on the desk from other projects to create the tags, hence the difference in sizes… it was just what was to hand! Of course I used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch to create them!
Then I went to town die cutting the flowers and leaves using all sorts of scraps from off the desk and the piles of bits and pieces I saved for die cutting tiny bits from!
Once I had a decent stash of bits to work with I chose some of the tiny stamps in the set to create backgrounds on the white tags using colours I thought would work with the colours in the die cuts.
Then I created the cluster of flowers and leaves and glued them into place.
Next I chose a sentiment (from the Waterfront stamp set) that worked for the reason I was making these (for my zoom crafting friends) and stamped that and then cut up the sentiment into little strips. I edged each strip and then adhered them down. I love doing this with stamps so I can place the sentiment in different places.
Finally I finished with wink of Stella which I added to each of the flower centres.
Love how they turned out… they did need some ribbon to finish them off but forgot to photograph them at this point so you are missing that on the pics!
Still not sure if Tag Thursday will be a weekly thing or just random throughout the year… we will have to see how I get on?
And now for a slice of life as its been a few days since I included one in a blog… well sleep has not been good the past week with two terrible nights of very little sleep, not good when it’s busy at work and I have to be alive and use my brain! I am also super obsessed still with journalling … a bit of bujo and a lot of making junk journal signatures and I’ve started filling my first one. I’m also currently obsessed with Ms. Paper Lover on You Tube and could watch her create all day!
In other news I’m trying my hardest to reduce calorie intake but still enjoy my food…. mixed results on how well I am doing with it to be honest, but happy that I am at least trying even if not always succeeding!
That’s it for now folks. Thanks for reading my blogs. I really appreciate it.
