Jolly Holly Robins

Hello Everyone
I am sharing a Christmas card which I sent to a friend (but also doubling up as a sample for Crafty Individuals), featuring a new Crafty Individuals stamp with some adorable feathered friends,CI-424 Jolly Holly Robins.
This is such a sweet stamp which although I used for a Christmas card it would also be lovely on a birthday card for anyone celebrating a winter birthday.
Yes, here we see red making an appearance once again!oneWith it being for a Christmas card I wanted some twinkle to the stamped image so I heat embossed with some very, very old twinkly embossing powder.  twoI want to mention that the background is painted with DecoArt fluid acrylics.  Beautiful consistency and coverage.  I used English Red Oxide (available from That’s Crafty).  With red not being a favourite colour of mine, I am very picky when it comes to buying paint (or ink) but this is a beautiful colour, a lovely depth to it.
A dash of sparkle and paint flicks. fourA sentiment dangles from a tattered ticking bow. threeA little bit more of the ticking.sevenThe wooden button was also painted with the DecoArt paint.sixThank You for your visit today.
I had intended to break up the festive related posts with a bit of this ‘n’ that so apologies for festive samples dominating the space here at the moment.
I always appreciate your time and even though I am spending less time on-line, I always catch-up with the lovely comments you leave for me to read.

    I “ditto” all the above comments, and love all your work. I was wondering what kind of fabric you used to stamp on? I am new to your artwork, and can’t wait to see mor

      Hello Annette
      Thank you for your visit and your lovely comment.
      I normally use cotton fabric to stamp onto or muslin. I would usually stamp with Staz-on when stamping onto fabric but if you plan on washing the stamped fabric then you need to ensure that you use a suitable ink pad for stamping onto fabric.
      Have a lovely day.

    Lynne, I love your use of red!! It’s stunning and absolutely perfect for all of these wonderfully festive Christmas cards that you’ve been creating 🙂 You make me giggle–I have some very, very old sparkly embossing powder, too (circa 2000!) that I never use!! I like your twinkly birdies 🙂 I can see the shimmer in your photos!! You’ve got a good glittery embossing powder!! 🙂 LOL!!
    Oh, I hope you’re not running out of the red & white ticking!! I want to see how you’ll incorporate it in your wonderful creations in 2015 🙂 🙂
    Love this Christmas card, Lynne!! Ho Ho Ho!! Merry Christmas!! XOXO-Shari

    Oooh, this is so adorable!!! Absolutely perfect in each and every detail, and in this combination of twinkle, tissue, paints… fantastic mix. I adore this tag-card Lynne, a real beauty. You will see soon on my blog a set of card-tags using the same stamp, it’s so beautiful, isn’t it? Just need a bit of time to write my own posts… 😦 Hugs, Coco xxx
