A Robin's Christmas


 








Hello!

* * * * * 
I am adding two Christmas cards featuring robins today. 
For this first one I have used a large rubber stamp, A Robin's Christmas,  from 
Stamp Addicts by Artist Teri Sherman.

The card is an 8 x7 inches tent fold which I simply converted from an 8 x 8 inches white card blank.

I stamped the image in black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder, coloured with Prisma pencils and added some wink of stella to
 tree baubles, star and windows for a little bit of shimmer.
Edges are distressed and gilded by decoart metallic lustre. This was also applied to red card and corrugated card. The other layers are torn, distressed and inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink except for the  kraft paper base layer.
I made a simple box and tag and added some silk crush ribbon.

Materials:
A Robin's Christmas rubber stamp
Card blank
Kraft Paper
Paper sheets from a designer pad by Teresa Collins
Corrugated cardboard
Red textured card.
Vintage Lace
Christmas bell charm
Izink black ink pad
Clear embossing powder
Prisma pencils
Wink of Stella
Decoart metallic lustre
Antique Linen Distress Ink
 Sentiments from Winter Woodland pad.
Plain white card for box
Silk crush ribbon.

This is my second Christmas card featuring robins today. 
For this second one, I am using another large stamp from Stamp Addicts, Teapot Robins, also by artist, Teri Sherman.

This card is 5x7inches.
i stamped the image on parchment with embossing ink and heat embossed with a Wow embossing glitter,  white puff and twinkle, which really does give a nice puffy, twinkly finish.

I stamped another image on card and coloured it with Prisma pencils.
I lined these two images up and layered it with red and white card.

The insert sentiment is stamped with an Inkylicious stamp
 using Memento London Fog
I added a snowflake embellishment and made a white box
 finished with white ribbon.

These little boxes are nice for those cards given by hand and don't take long to make.

Materials:
Teacup Robins Stamp
Memento Ink Cocoa
Memento Ink London Fog
Embossing Ink
Parchment
Wow embossing glitter
Red card
White card
Snowflake embellishment
White Ribbon

House Mouse ATC






Hello!

I used part of the Stampendous rubber stamp, Bedtime Babies, to make an ATC. I combined it with an Inkylicious stamp, part of a Christmas set, to create a little scene.
I almost created a little scene myself as I cannot take a good pic today to save my life! Luckily these little meeces always cheer me up :)
 I stamped the House Mouse image in Memento rich cocoa and coloured it with Prisma pencils. The inkylicious stamp I stamped in silver and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I used a couple of copic marker pens to complete the scene. Finally, I used Tim Holtz frosted film over everything for a subtle sparkle.
Thanks for looking in,
Vee xx

Materials used:
Stampendous stamp Bedtime Babies
Inkylicious Christmas Stamp
Memento Ink
Versa Magic Ink
Clear Embossing Powder 
Prismacolour pencils
