This is a beautiful stamp set by Sunshine and Bee Designs.  Jeni knows I absolutely love robins so she made this stamp set with me in mind. You can see the process video of this card HERE.

Festive-Robins-Card-Blog-1

I used two of the robins and made up the sentiment using the various words in this stamp set.

Using Mowed Lawn Distress Oxides I put some ink onto my mat, sprayed a little water over it and smooshed the watercolour panel into it all over to give colour for my background.  This was left to dry.

Using two of the robin images I stamped onto another panel with black ink, and coloured them in with copic colours (red for the tummy and brown for the rest, the beak was coloured with a darker brown.

There are no dies for these images (yet) so I carefully cut around the shapes, using my mini snips, cutting off the feet. Very easy to do.

When the distress background panel was dry, I arranged the robins (one near the top right corner, and one near the bottom left).  I then stamped the images again directly unto the panel with black ink, (as this will show the robins feet). I adhered the robins over the stamped images with liquid glue.  Ensuring the feet were positioned correctly.

The sentiment was then stamped onto the background panel with ‘chirp chirp from my nest to yours’ as though the top robin is saying this to the bottom robin.  At the bottom I just stamped ‘chirp chirp’ All the sentiment words were stamped using Midnight ink.

You can use this stamp set and words all year round (not just for Christmas) to just say hello to friends not seen for a long time, friends/family moving to a new home or for anyone who loves robins.

I had two robins left over so I coloured them in, as above and adhered them down one on top of the other and made a tag.  I used Fiesta Blue ink to stamp a star the top of the tag. On the back I stamped to and from, from the festive robins stamp set.
