Rudolph Day 3 Already!

Can you believe it was the third Rudolph Day on Wednesday. I have attempted a completely different style for this month.

Materials used:
Deedee’s Digi Stamp Sets – Mary’s Joy and Krafty Christmas Kit
page from an old book
poinsettia dies
Neenah Dessert Storm card
Kraft card
printing card
Distress Ink pads – aged mahogany, iced spruce, pine needles
blending tool and blending mat
Spectrum Noir pencils
white flower stamen
gold mirri card

I sized and printed my base images and extra copies of Mary and printed them onto a piece of Neenah Desert Storm card before cutting the panel to the correct size. I coloured the images with the pencils. From the extra copies I cut Mary’s dress and another baby. I shaped the pieces and layered them onto the base image using Gel glue.
SAM_1513 (watermarked)I printed a piece of the dotty paper from the Krafty Christmas set and used this to cut a piece slightly smaller than the card base. I matted my topper onto a piece of gold mirri. I attached the lagers to the card blank. Finally I coloured a couple of pages from an old book with the distress inks and cut the layers for my poinsettia from them. I glued the flower parts together, coloured some stamen with yellow ink and threaded them through a hole in the middle before attaching it to my card.

The flower is a new technique for me but I do like the effect, especially on the Kraft card so I may be using it again in the future.


Thank you for popping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
