Stained glass robins

When I got this stamp, I did think that I would end up making more card variations with it — the stained glass style does lend itself to lots of different mediums and experiments — but then I didn’t actually need any more!

Monster and teddy

The last of my catch-up blog posts! Assuming that I haven’t made more cards than I’ve blogged between scheduling this post and it being published, I am completely caught up. Ahem.

It will be interesting to see everyone else’s creations at the same time as making my own.

Xmas card: Peace Santa

What: A peace-loving Santa for the December instalment of Gerda Steiner’s progressive challenge. The idea: Taking inspiration from the banner that Santa is holding, I wanted to create an aperture for the banner to be hung across. How: Colouring Santa was the most straightforward part of making this card. Fussy cutting him was pretty simple… Continue reading Xmas card: Peace Santa
