    Winter Tales Tag Ornaments: New Artwork & Related Sale!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Christmas, Lora Mahaffey, Miniatures

    It’s a banner! It’s Tags! No wait, it’s Ornaments! by Design Team Member Lora Mahaffey!

    Wow! So clever! Lora made a set of beautiful tags (that can be ornaments or gift box tags) that can also be displayed as a garland! Plus she used both size of the new Winter Tales Paper Pads!

    And… as there’s a new sale on (the new) Winter Tales Tag Ornaments Collection: everything in Lora’s project is on sale!

    Back to today’s artwork: here’s an intro from Lora’s blog post:

    Howdy everyone! Getting into the Christmas spirit and doing a thing for the good folks at Alpha Stamps!

    So, what is it? All of the above. I designed these tags so that they could be attached to garland or a stout ribbon and hug on anything that needs a bit of spiff. Hang the whole thing on your mantle or in a window, Christmas tree or door. Or divide them up and and hang them on your tree as ornaments, tags for a gift, anything you can think of. They are pretty enough to be the gift themselves. Hey, make a few pairs of really big earrings!

    This is a pretty straight forward, easy project that I had a lot of fun with.

    I had numerous sized tags from which to pick and I chose these large tags (6×3 inch) and the 4.5×3 inch tags because I liked the amount of space they had for the images I wanted to use. And by the way, I love the papers I had to play with. It is Stamperia’s Winter Tales and it is gorgeous, so go over to Alpha Stamps and get some! I think i may have used elements from just a bout every page of the 8×8 stack and a lot of the background strips from the 12×12. Love it!

    So anyway, I used the tags as templates and cut out all of my background papers front and back for every tag. Then without a concrete plan other than the fact that I was pretty sure about what primary images I wanted to use, I started composing the pieces.

    Great job, Lora!! See the wide photos below for TWO close-ups of the beautiful tags!
