Peace Tag Set with Ranger Ink

Happy Monday, Crafty Friends!

Today I have the great honor of guesting over on the Ranger Ink blog. And since it’s holiday time, and we’re all in need of fun packaging ideas, I have made a sweet and shabby set of tags to share that are sure to brighten up those Christmas boxes and bags.

These happy tags are filled with lots of my favorite Ranger Distress and Tim Holtz products. For art tags, I like to use a large tag base. But since these were designed to be added to gifts, I started with #5 size manila craft tags from Ranger.

Love that these manila tags are heavyweight and sturdy enough to stand up to lots of Distress treatment, because I put them through the works. They’ve been inked and embossed, sanded, painted, and splattered for that aged time-worn finish that I love so well.

It never ceases to amaze me, the wonders of Distress when the inks blend and mix together with water. Almost seems like magic.

I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial for these up on the Ranger Ink blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I only accomplished a little bit on my holiday to-do list, so the pressure is on. Here’s hoping I can knock it out this week!

  1. Wow!! Your peace tags with the candy canes are gorgeous, Audrey!! And, love the beautiful soft distressed backgrounds…so pretty!!!

  2. Just bought that embossing folder and have been looking for a project to use it on. The watercoloring looks so good paired with the foliage. These tags will make your packages extra special. Hugs!

  3. I am impressed that you cover so many different styles. From vintage, cute, mixed media, fabric/sewing projects till shabby chic. Your tags are stunning; I love this non traditional colour palette!

  4. Beautiful background! Once I finish up my last craft show Saturday I want to take some time to create some artsy tags, inking distressing and stamping. Thanks for the inspiration! BTW, I am enjoying this nontraditional color combo for Christmas.

  5. How festive are these! I have the bright and bold colours. Love the textured effect you created with those Distressed Inks. 🙂
