Vintage Lingerie and Textures (and New Giveaways)

Filed under Art Projects, Giveaways, Lora Mahaffey, Newsletters, Springtime in Paris Kit, Tutorials

Note: most of the links on this post no longer work, as we moved to a new Web site in 2018. However, you can see the supply list items from Lora’s project that are still available on the new site.

French lingerie and a window box tutorial by Lora Mahaffey! And a Giveaway inspired by Lora’s artwork. Plus new items (with some fabulous textures) and a FREE Gift Kit with textures, too! First, I’ll let Bella take the lead and introduce Lora’s project.

Well here we are wrapping up the month of May and Springtime in Paris with a flirty little creation by our hoot of a Design Team Member Lora Mahaffey.

Paris and underwear… There’s a place in France where the naked ladies dance… and I’m sure it is at The House of Underwear! Now tell me. Where else will you find such a fabulous creation called “The House of Underwear” except at Alpha Stamps? Exactly… nowhere but with us and you love it!

Lora has taken a simple sheet of 12×12 Chipboard (trimmed down to 8″ x 10″) and turned it into a whimsical view into a Maison des Culottes. Using the Double Dot Decaf Scrapbook Paper to cover the outside “wall” of the house, Lora created the “roof” with the Glamour & Grunge Scrapbook Papers. How appropriate that the name of the collage sheet that Lora used for the curtains in each window is called Room With A View. Oh I bet there’s quite a view on Friday nights after a few drinks! Oh my, there I go again. You know. Digressing!

OK, ready? Aside from the name of the project, here’s my favorite part. The 3-D windows and window boxes! How cute are the ATC Windows (with the girls inside, from the New and On Sale! Vintage Lingerie Collage Sheet that Lora hand-tinted with Copic Markers!) and the window boxes that Lora created and edged with the White Dresden Border Sampler Set? Of course you know that every House of Underwear must have gorgeous Tiny Paper Roses planted in each window box. It just wouldn’t be Paris without roses!

If you love the window boxes and want to know how to make your own House of Underwear, guess what? Lora created a quick tutorial on how to make them! First here is a listing of all the supplies Lora used and then after you put on your best pair of underwear, head on over to Lora’s blog. I won’t tell if you peek in!
