Little Robin Red Breast by ikki

Hi, today I would like to show you my card using stamps from the Fat Robin set...



Materials used:
Cardstock – A4 dark turq, white
Stamps : Chocolate Baroque – Trees, robin, snowflakes
Perfect Medium
Adironack : oregano
Embossing powder : gold, clear
Glitter pens: red, green
Glossy accents, gems, glue stick foam pads

Method:
Make a 6" x 6" tent card. Randomly apply a glue stick round the edges, cover with gold embossing powder and heat emboss. With a green inkpad, stamp the snowflakes, and just the leaves from the robin stamp round the edges – cover with clear embossing powder and heat emboss.

From remaining cardstock, cut a strip approx 2.l/2" x 5". Stamps trees with Perfect Medium, cover with gold embossing powder and heat emboss. Stamp snowflakes and round edge of strip with green inkpad, cover with clear embossing powder and heat emboss. Colour the trees. Add gems.

Cut another strip of card 2.3/4" x 5.1/4". Apply glue stick to edges, cover with gold embossing powder and heat emboss. Add topper, and mount on base card using foam pads.

Using Perfect Medium, stamp the robin on spare card and cover with gold embossing powder and heat emboss. Cut out and add a touch of colour to the robin. Add to the card using foam pads.

Robins, holly and Christmas trees - favourites of mine for Chrissie cards and I'm not going to mention how many days.... to go, but it's defo getting time to start thinking!!!!!

Enjoy your day,
ikki

  3. I love the striking combination of gold & clear embossing along the outside edges & the dimension of the little robin & his branch is terrific. Delightful & I have to agree Christmas Trees, robins & holly are emblematic of Christmas for me.
