So today the theme at Christmas card club is robins - I seem to have misplaced my sheena robin stamp so I couldn't use that - so I looked through my drawers and found a sheena embossing folder that i used for one card and an indigo blu stamp that i used for the other.
Both cards have included a Clarity word chain sentiment.
This one is all an embossing folder - apart from the poinsettia - coloured with distress inks and pens. The poinsettia is from a TH die.
I stamped this one then masked the robin and used DI to make the background. Then i coloured the robin using distress pens. The main background is a layering stencil from TH with festive berries DI.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
We're off to IKEA today - hoping to pick up Penny's mattress and no doubt a few other things! I'll let you know tomorrow!!!
Fabulous cards Rachel and my Robin has returned back to our garden for the winter. He comes every year.ReplyDelete

Two lovely cards Rachel,...I never thought of using the Sheena embossing folder....great idea....xxxReplyDelete
Great cards Rachel, enjoy todayReplyDelete
Two gorgeous cards Rachel, a great idea to use the embossing folder instead of the stamp. I know just what you mean about finding the right wallpaper, we found one for our bedroom (to go on one wall only) after ptutting up I and 1/2 roll we could see that there was a flaw in the paper and had to take it all down again. Then had to go and find another (this has gone up perfectly and I think I prefer it).ReplyDelete
Fabulous Rachel, I do love to see a Robin on Christmas cards.ReplyDelete
hi there Rachel, I love Kendal, in fact I just adore the Lake District, many happy memories there and we used to stay at Rydal Hall, you might know it.ReplyDelete
Anyway, both your cards are gorgeous, and just perfect for our theme this challenge, Kate x

Beautiful cards Rachel. You lead such a busy and interesting life and still manage to amaze us with your lovely cards etc. All Andrews brothers stay at the South lakes, I went for years to Leighton Hall Bear fair and we have a lovely niece that stays at Silverdale.

Love these Rachel. Fab texture and colours and I'm glad that the wallpaper choosing is a calm planned affair. I never seem to be that organised. Happy searching. ZxReplyDelete
Two fab cards using different techniques . l like the background for the second card. Good luck with the decorating. I'm waiting for our decorator to come back and finish our spare bedroom. It is half done where the new run of cupboards have been put in so the walls are green behind me and purple in the front. hugs to you and the girls. Mrs A.ReplyDelete

Each one of your robins are beautiful! Great cards for Christmas!ReplyDelete
Rachel, each one is just so pretty. I love the look of your robins, they look a bit different from the robins I see in our yard. Your DI coloring is just so pretty, and I love the background touches on each of the cards. And also that gorgeous Nordic EF - glad you were able to enjoy a swim (brrr..bet it was cold!) and also great that you found the perfect wallpaper. Have a great upcoming week, and TFS.ReplyDelete
