A Couple of Christmas Cards

 Hi there and thanks for popping over to my blog...     
End of the month so time to join in the Christmas stash building over at 
Rudolph Day March Challenge
And I tried my hand at some loooooose watercolouring, not too successfully either as the front panels both got wrinkles

This Pinecones background stamp is from Simon Says and was a gift from a special friend... first time I have used it as it is quite large.  Chose one corner and inked and stamped with Versafine vintage sepia...then attacked it with Distress Inks.. mown lawn, rustic wilderness, brushed corduroy, gathered twig...  Then stamped the sentiment - Penny Black: Dot Christmas Wish, with Versamark and red embossed with Sizzix holly berry.

For my second card... I stamped and silver embossed the image from Stamps Happen: Joy.  I attacked this one with Distress Inks too... candied apple, crackling campfire, mown lawn, rustic wilderness, black soot..... not much else to do as the sentiment is part of the large stamp.
Hope you're enjoying your week with some creative time
hugs Robyn


  1. Lovely Christmas cards Robyn - I love the wash around the pinecones, and that is one gorgeous image too. That sock stamp is a large one, but such fun, and i like the vibrant colours you have used on it

  2. Hi Robyn,
    Happy Rudolf Days.
    Oh I love these wonderful cards and those stamped images are gorgeous.
    Beautifully coloured as well.
    The pine cone stamp is such a brilliant one to own.
    Thank you for joining the Rudolf Challenge.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L. DT

  3. I got tickled how you described how you went about painting these cards - "then attacked it".
    I must say, I think your pinecone card is fabulous - beautifully done Robyn!

  4. Wonderful watercolouring Robyn. Don't see any wrinkles ... just two gorgeous cards! xx

  5. Your cards are both really beautiful, There is a such a lovely look to watercolours!
    The metallic embossed image one is so pretty, and the second card with the boughs and pinecones has a soft peaceful feel.
    Thanks for taking part in the Rudolph Days Challenge.

  6. Two beautiful Christmas cards, Robyn! Love the pine cones in the corner with the pretty watercoloring and the red sentiment! The silver embossing makes the stocking so rich and classy!
