OOOH wow, a card without Ink - that doesn't happen very often for me because I'm a rubber stamper, but a couple weeks back I got this freebie die on a magazine.. so I had to try it out.... it's fiddly, changing colours and collecting all those little bits - happy that I used the double sided adhesive tape before I die cut...i used different types of shiny metallic card even for the card base. And so I have a Christmas card for this weeks Shopping Our Stash - SOS #347 - No Ink.
I am also playing along at Watercooler Wednesday WWC163 challenge- All About Christmas - Anything Goes and also to Rudolph Days challenge for March - Anything Goes.  Thanks for visiting and enjoy your Easter

March Rudolph Days Challenge


  1. Oh my, Robyn, I just finished reading the full post and am amazed! Such a lot of paper-piecing! I applaud your decision to use the double sided adhesive before die-cutting. Otherwise there may well have been a lot of weeping and wailing. Seriously, though, this is spectacular! It could well be a real stained glass window with all that wonderful detail and all those changes of colour. What luck to have gotten that die free, too. You've certainly more than done justice to it. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  2. It is simply stunning...and yes it does look like a bit of work to make it but believe me the look is totally worth it!!! Superb creation
    Thank you so much for joining us at the Rudolph Days Challenge!

  6. This is stunning. The glimmer of the Noel and the holly and bells is so pretty! I like to stamp as well, but find there are times I just cannot manage it. Si I have a large selection of dies and also of pre coloured images and I make cards that way too

    Your card lets the gorgeous die dominate and it pops off the pretty grey card background. Stunning!

    Thanks for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge.

  7. Wow Robyn, that free die is terrific. What a score. It may have been fiddly but the end result is stunning. Beautiful stained glass look. I love all the foils you've gathered together to complete this design. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday All About Christmas challenge this week and sharing your fabulous card.

  8. oh my gosh, yes, i'm sure that was fiddly to make but WOW it's lovely with all those metallics! thanks for SHOPPING YOUR (no ink!) STASH with us this week! ♥
