Fun with Tags & Cards!

Hi Folks!
Good Morning :)

Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. Hope you are doing well. 

As you know, Mudra introduced an awesome new product during their January Release- 10 gorgeous new "Chipzeb" Designer Chipboards. These beautiful white chipboards are intricately designed and economical.  Would highly recommend you to check them out and try them. 

For today's post, I will be sharing 2 Mixed Media Tags and 4 cards using lots of gorgeous supplies by Mudra Craft Stamps. 

For the Mixed Media Tags, I have used the "Simply Tags" Designer Chipboards. 

Here is some useful information about these tags:
  •  The packet contains 6 chipboard tags of various sizes. 
  • These are about 1.2 mm in thickness & made of sturdy creme color high quality board
  • They take mediums, colors etc very well. With or without primer i.e. Gesso. 
  • For today's Mixed Media Tags, I applied a thick layer of white Gesso, added texture with Modelling paste and used sprays to add color to 2 of these tags. They took all these mediums well. 
Here are the approximate sizes of the tags (in centimeters):

- 16.5 by 8.9
- 13.4 by 6.8
- 9.5 by 4.8
- 6.7 by 2.7
- 5 by 3
- 5 by 2

One idea to use the smaller sized tags is to add them as cute embellishments or for stamping/writing messages whilst the larger sizes can be used for making gift tags.

Let's get started with the projects.
