Clear Scraps | Christmas Nativity Mixed Media Acrylic Tag

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 put the 6×6 Ice Crystal Snowflakes Stencil at the bottom of the nativity image and I added some of the mixed glitter paste on it too.

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!

Stenciled Butterfly Tag

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…

Today, I would like to share a project I created for the March Stencil Challenge. Head over to STAMPlorations Blog to see more info and inspiration from the design team.

I cut out a watercolore paper using one of the die from Manila Tags Nesting Dies using my Gemini Junior machine. Then, I use the Make Marks 5 and Make Marks 6 to create the watercolored background.

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.

Anything Goes With Dies | Holiday Treat Tag And Gift Box

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 made the box and the bow using the We R Memory Keeper 1-2-3 Punch Board and ADORnit Holidays papers collection. This punch board is one of my favorite crafting tools. I made all sizes boxes, envelopes, bows, tabs, and even tags with this punch board. You don’t need glue to put together this box. It is easy to close and to open.

This gift tag I made using the Tim Holtz Nesting Tag Die and Hero Arts Coffee Tags Stamp and the matching Coffee Tags Frame dies.

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!

With Love and Gratitude Gift Tag

Hello everyone… Over here, the weather is cooler compare to last week. Fall is coming near and it gets me to start thinking of the season of giving thanks. Today, I would love to share this simple Fall themed gift tag with you all.

I created the tag base using the tag SVG file from the Graciellie Design -Coffee Lovers SVG Files. I cut a heavyweight cardstock with Silhouette Cameo 3. And then I added some of the Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink, and Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink using blending brush.

After that I sprayed it with water using the Distress Sprayer, let it sit for couple seconds, and than I dabbed it off with paper towel. Then I added some white paint splatters using white acrylic spray paint and brush. After that I dried it with craft heater.

I printed the 4 candle and flower images from the With Love & Gratitude Digital Stamp Set on a watercolor paper with laser printer. And then I cut them with my Silhouette Cameo 3 using PixScan Mat and their software for scan and cut.

After cutting it, I added the DecoFoil Gold Transfer Sheet on it, put in inside folded parchment paper, and then I run it though the laminator. And then I colored the flowers with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater.

I colored the foiled image with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater after coloring. I added the candle on the tag with 3D foam tape.

For the sentiment, I printed some of them on a white cardstock, and then I cut one of them with the Divinity Design – Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies using my Gemini Jr. Machine. I added it on the tag with permanent adhesive glue and 3D foam tape.

I cut out a heavyweight white cardstock using the white bag using Divinity Designs – Card Caddy & Gift Bag Dies with Gemini Jr. Machine. I put the bag together using the double sided-tape.

I added the tag on the bag by clipped it with the mini wooded clip and some baker’s twine.
