Christmas Card Throwdown (August Theme)

  Hi Crafty Friends.  I am your hostess for August at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge.

It's time for the Theme Challenge.  I have chosen 'BIRDS' as our theme, because I love them:) 

This is a bird stamp I've neglected, despite it being beautiful. My Misti stamping tool tool helped me build up the colour and then I added more directly with Zig Markers.  The background was smooshed with Distress Oxide Inks. The die-cut foliage was coloured with markers and then I sprinkled a touch of Distress Embossing Glaze and heat embossed.

Stamps: Darkroom Door Robin; Colorado Craft Sentiment  

Dies: Tim Holtz Holiday Greens

I hope you'll visit the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog to see what our talented Guest Designer, Lucie and the rest of the team created for this theme and then be inspired to join in the challenge!

I'm also sharing my card at the following challenges;-

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I love to read your comments:)


  1. How beautiful your card is Jenny - love the soft background which really makes the beautifully coloured bird and branch 'pop'
    Stay safe

  2. Oh this is so pretty Jenny, with fabulous colouring (with the help of the misti) and what a sweet little robin image. Loving the smooshing and the embossing glaze too x. A real Beauty x.

  3. A great choice, Jenny! Love your robin nestled in the pine!

  4. I love this little bird and the way you have used the image. I have several bird stamps but this one is particularly pleasing to me.

  5. c'est magnifique Jenny, une splendide création, biz

  6. Such a fabulously coloured card - love that robin. Our 'R' in our challenge is for 'ribbon', but this would certainly fit with out 'plump' prompt. A nice plump robin. Lovely card. Thank you for joining us at ABC Christmas Challenge xx Lynda/Loopyloo DT
