Bloom Impressions and Tags Galore!

Hello Lovelies!

Keri Sallee here and I am so excited to share with you 3 little tags I made to show how you can make something matter whether you have a little time or a lot of time.


MSD "Garment  District" 6x6 Paper
MSD "Mad Tea Party" Rabbit Hole-12x12 Paper
MSD Junque and Gems "Rhinestone Button"
MSD Junque and Gems Metal Arrow
MSD "Love U" Stamp
MSD "Texture" Stamp

Faber Castel Gelato-White
Archival Ink by Ranger-Jet Black
Distress Ink-Vintage Photo
Liquitex Matte Gel Medium
Sizzix Susan's Garden Flower Petal Die
Vintage Hymnal


Let's Keep it simple, but elegant!

1) Swipe your white gelato along the edges of your tag and then lightly smear with your finger.
2) Stamp the heart image from the MSD "Love U" stamp set using your Archival Ink.
3) Glue Arrow to the corner. 


Now let's work up some layers!

1) Cover your tag with the striped paper from "Garment District."
2) Stamp with the MSD "Texture" Stamp and ink the edges.
3) Cut out a butterfly from the "Garment District " paper. Use the negative as a stencil to make a white butterfly with your gelato. Lightly outline.
4) Fussy Cut your favorite images from the "Garment District" paper. Ink Edges. Organize them to your liking.
5) Add lace. 


Let's add some SERIOUS dimension.

1) Start by choosing your paper. I used MSD's Rabbit Hole paper from the "Mad Tea Party" line.
2) Using a die cut to cut petals. I used a petal die from the Susan's Garden Collection from Sizzix.
3) Assemble your flower using a hot glue gun. Watch Marion's You Tube's REALLY helpful!
4) Take a length of ribbon about 1.5 wide by about 3-4 inches long. Put a small amount of hot glue onto a non-stick surface. Arrange your lace in a circle, using s pencil or something similar to press it down. 
5) Once the glue is cooled, peel it up from the surface and glue it to the middle of your flower.
6) Using your hot glue gun, add your MSD J&G "Rhinestone Button" to the middle. Set your flower aside.
7) To cover your tag, add small pieces of your vintage hymnal. I used a Matte Gel Medium to keep my vintage feel. Trim edges or wrap them around. Allow to dry or use a heat gun to speed the process up.
8)  Once it is dry, use your fingers to lightly rub your Vintage Photo Distress ink over the surface. The need is to hit the high points, so don't rub too hard.
9) Add your finished flower. 

So there you go! Loads of matter how much time you have.

I hope you enjoyed today's projects.
