Lovely to see you all again! Asia King here with another Christmas make.

Today I would like to share a project I made with the beautiful Manger Family stamp. With all the buzz of Christmas gifts shopping, Santa, jingling bells and stuff, we tend to forget what Christmas is actually all about. And this stamp is just perfect for capturing the spirit of the ‘Manger Miracle‘.

I’m not much of a ‘colouring’ stamper but I thought it might be helpful to share the colours of the Spectrum Noir markers I used for colouring the image.

The background was inked with distress inks and the bottom of the image was sprinkled with Pearlized Mica Fragments. As my adhesive for the mica I used E-Z Dots® Mini Permanent from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

To create my Manger I used natural and copper brown raffia, mounted over white Crafty Foam Tape. For the Star of Bethlehem I used a Maya Road chipboard star and a 3D Foam Star which I decorated with Champagne Crushed Glass Glitter.

My sentiment panel was stamped with the stamps from the Excelsis Deo Perfectly Clear set (available via your local retailer) and die cut using a die from Marianne Designs. My poinsettias and pine cones were cut using Spellbinders dies.

To fix my embellishments in place I used lots of Dodz™ Small and DODZ™ – 3D.

To ‘age’ my design I used Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls mist.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and thank you so much for all the comments you so kindly share here and directly on my blog.

Big crafty hugs
