A Robin’s Christmas

A Robin’s Christmas

Hi Creative Friends,

I am sharing a holiday card design using the delightful Robin’s Christmas stamp by Penny Black. This stamp features a beautiful wintery scene of a charming little bird. I was so taken by this little robin that I had to make a video showing you all the steps.


I am always a sucker for bird stamps and this little guy is just so cute! View all the coloring and steps by clicking below.

Coloring this scene was a pleasure and it actually is much quicker than you think. I used mostly Ranger-Tim Holtz distress inks. All the colors used are listed below in the supply list.

I especially like the white frame around the scene. It creates a vignette-type look which I am very fond of. I used the Torn Edges die set from Papertrey Ink but the Antique Frames set by Penny Black is a very good die set too!

The sentiment was from the Penny black Joyful Holiday stamp set and was inked with Dark Indigo, a Papertrey Ink ink color. A lacey snowflake was added to complete the card.

I hope you enjoyed this video and project. I will be back very soon with another paper-crafting adventure!

  1. Hi Dana, I am in love with this little bird set. Your painting has inspired me.
    Can I ask what brush you used? I’m new at watercolor and need all the help I can get!
