Robin set. Snowflake stencil and Merry Christmas.

Hello Everyone …Sorry for not blogging I have had a few health issues the last couple of months and have not been on top of my game because of it …however back on the horse as they say and feeling much better so here as promised is a blog post showcasing the wonderful Robins set . they were November’s Monthly Special Stamp set made in grey rubber they stamp out beautifully I like to heat emboss my cards as I think it gives a more defined look it also helps the colouring too I find. I had a quick play and the robins do make a great stand alone stamp with nothing added. But that would be to easy ….and I do like my backgrounds…..Sky …clouds ….no I wanted something christmassy ….So I pulled out a few snowflakes from the snowflakes set  and for the Robins.  Then I found a stencil in the shape of a snowflake from my stash Tah Dah! perfect . A Quick Merry Christmas also from Hobby art and with brushes inks and a few pro-makers I was good to go.



So there we are Two of the lovely Robin’s set and my take on them …not clouds but the snowflake works I think . Hope you like it too

Wishing you all  Health Wealth and Happiness and may you have all you want around your tree….for me that will be family.  So have a Very Merry Christmas And I look forward to crafting with you all in the new year.

Merry Christmas Bernie xxxxx
