Merry Christmas

Well it's time for a last reminder for the year to come join in the fun at
with our Monoprint technique this month

Using a Poinsettia stencil, I applied red pigment ink to the stencil and then carefully laying it onto white card, used a brayer to get an even print - then removed the stencil and quickly covered with clear embossing powder and heat set it.   Stamped and gold embossed the sentiment and then cut a strip from the panel and used foam sheet to lift it on the red card.  To finish I die cut a poinsettia flower and added gold micro beads to the center.

I also made a second card from the monoprint panel - I cut another strip and this time attached to a white card and cut the front panel with a torn edge die and attached with foam sheet.  Finished the card with a die cut sentiment.

We'd love to see your creations over on the CAS Stencil blog and  there's heaps of fabulous inspiration from our GD Lucie and the design team.
I am also playing along with Stamping Sensations November challenge - Traditional Christmas Colours - Gold, Red and Green.
Thanks for visiting, I  really appreciate it - happy card making

Stamping Sensations


  1. What an elegant design with that monoprint stenciled panel on the red card base Robyn - your poinsettia is just beautiful with its gloss! The die cut sentiment is perfect layered over your panel on your 2nd card! xx

  2. Gorgeous Christmas cards, Robyn! Such a beautiful Poinsettia on the first card, and I love that you were able to create 2 cards with your Monoprint panel!

  3. So glad you've enjoyed this month's challenge theme.
    Gorgeous cards, the monoprinted backgrounds look fab. I love the texture from the heat embossing on the first one.
    You asked what Mixed Media card I use .... I have the ones from Ranger. Mixed Media cardstock, and the Distress Mixed Media Heavy cardstock. Both are great and can take lots of ink and water. There's also one in the Dylusions range too xx

  4. Two awesome monoprint cards, Robyn! I love the die cut poinsettia with the poinsettia monoprint and the die cut Merry Christmas is beautiful on the other piece!

  5. Two fabulous cards using the one stencil monoprint, Robyn! Love the first card with the beautifully layered poinsettia die-cut and dark card base. Very elegant! You second card is fun with the split design and large die-cut sentiment. Fabulous cards Robyn! xx

  6. Two beautiful stencil monoprint Christmas card designs, Robyn. I love the design on both your cards. Your red white space really makes your monoprint panels pop. Gorgeous die cut poinsettia on your 1st card. TFS my friend. Hugs...Nancy

  7. Great idea to use pigment ink and a brayer Robyn! These cards look wonderful, so festive, Cathy x
