The 12 Tags of Christmas Day #8 with Gena

Merry Christmas! It’s Gena and I want to share with you the tag I made for our 12 Days of Christmas.

TCS 12 Tags Graphic


We have been having a great time with our 12 Tags of Christmas- I hope you have had a chance to see them all! If you have missed any, you can see all of them starting here.




I began by using a technique I learned in class with Wendy Vecchi.  I started by putting a thin layer of Silver Embossing Paste on the tag. imageOnce that was dry I added a layer of Crackling Texture Paste.


As that drys you will see the silver paste through the crackle. How cool is that?  Next, I added some ink to the tag… I used Iced Spruce and Tumbled Glass. This really shows the crackle.  For the snowflakes I used the Tim Holtz layered snowflake, I added the Ranger texture paste and while it was wet added in the dry Clear Rock Candy glitter.  I added Maya Road Vintage Raspberry beads to the centers… These beads can be broken apart.


Next, I die cut the new Sizzix Tim Holtz  Christmas Winter Angel out of Ranger Mirrored paper and added that to my tag. Then I die cut “peace on earth” from the Tim Holtz Christmas script words. After gluing it all down I added a little clear Stickles to the words to help them show a better.

Wishing you all a very Happy Holiday! Hope to see you soon at the Crafty Scrapper!
