Hello everyone… Today I have a Nativity mixed media acrylic tag to share with you all. I hope it is not to early for Christmas project!
For my tag today, I use one of the tags from the Acrylic Tag Album. All Clear Scrap acrylic sheets, acrylic tags, and shaker plastic cover have clear plastic covers to protect the surfaces.
I removed the clear plastic covers from both sides of the tag, and then I covered the acrylic tag surface with the mod podge (gel medium will work well, too for this step).
I added the old hymnal music page on the tag and then cover it again with the mod podge and let it dried well.
After surface dried well, I trimmed the extra paper with scissors.
I covered the surface randomly with metallic paste (gold and silver), and I also added some white gesso.
When the that paste and white gesso layer dried well, I covered the whole tag with Glitter mod podge for some sparkle look on it (I really wish the camera can capture it!). Then let it sit to dry.
If you are not patient enough waiting each layer of medium to dry, you can dry them with craft heater, but have to be very very very careful to not be over heated becuase the acrylic tag can bend or the paste can be bubbly.
Next step, I put the 4×6 Nativity stencil on top of the tag and I taped it down so it would not move around when I added the modeling paste.
I added the Black Ice Metallix Gel on the stencil just on the navitity image.
On the craft mat, I mixed some fine iridescent glitter with the white modeling paste. Then I added the paste on the stars above the nativity image.
I set the tag aside and let the paste to dry while I worked on the extra embellishment pieces.
I cut out some green and red cardstock using the holly leaves swirl and berries dies from A Jillian Vance Design. Then, I printed the digital sentiment from Graciellie Design on a white cardstock, and cut it with the oval stitched die.
I added all the extra pieces on top of the tag, right bellow the nativity with 3-in-1 Beacon adhesive and some 3D foam tape for extra dimension.
I hope this will give you more ideas for your Holidays projects. It is coming soon for sure! Visit Clear Scraps store to check on what’s new!

Hey hey hey… I hope you all are doing well, healthy, and safe. These days people are feeling insecure and afraid of what is spreading around the world right now. My prayers go to all the nations and people…
I stamped the butterfly image from the Fluttery Stamp Set with VersaFine Clair ink pad and then I colored with Tombow Dual Brush Pens and Spectrum Noir Glitter Brush. Next, I dried the butterfly with craft heater and fussy cut it with scissors.
I stamped the sentiment and label image from the same stamp set with VersaFine Clair on a white cardstock and fussy cut it with scissors.
I added the label on the tag with permanent adhesive glue, and then I added the butterfly with permanent adhesive glue for the body and used 3D foam tape for the wings so they will pop up.
I hope you all join and play along with us. You can read full detail about the challenge rules and to link up your project at March Stencil Challenge Blog Post by March 31, 11:55 p.m. Pacific time.

Hello everyone! Who’s counting down to Christmas? We are!!! It is 17 Days until the holly jolly Christmas day! Some gifts are here and ready to be wrapped. Today, I have a gift tag and box to share with you.
I stamped the coffee cup, lid, holly leaves, and sentiment on a white cardstock using Hero Arts cube inks, and then I cut them with the matching dies using Gemini Jr machine. I added some Stardust Stickles Glitter Glue on the foam and set it aside to dry. I also added some mini red gems on the holly leaves.
Next, I cut the green cardstock with the tag die using my Gemini Jr machine. Then, I added the coffee cup on the tag with permanent dries-clear adhesive. I added the lid and sentiment label on the cup with 3D foam tape, and then I added the holly leaves on the foam with permanent dries-clear adhesive. And the very last step, I added some white paint splatters on it.
This box is ready for Christmas wrapping party in this house! I hope this give you an idea for your wrapping party, too!
