April2020 Designs with Hobby Art

Good Morning Today I would like to share my Design Team samples using two of the newest Hobby Art Stamp sets.

The First Stamp set is the beautiful Dovecote stamps designed by Sharon file:

Coloured Pencil on Kraft card, Embossing folder by Tim Holtz.

The set inspired me to make a tag journal, this set can be used for so many occasions. Stamped and coloured with water colours  onto the Hobby Art Watercolour Card 

The Next card I have a tutorial for that can be found on the Hobby art blog, I will be uploading it in the next couple of days.

The next set is the Summer Floral's designed by Sharon File

Wanted to go bright and vibrant for this card, a doodled border frame then mounted onto black card just makes it pop.

I wanted to go for a vintage look for next card , so I toned down the colours and did lots of fussy cutting and shaping to give dimension, the card bade is a foiled craft card to which I added a sheet of vintage music paper , I distressed this using some splats of paint and stamped some  rings using the Becki's Backgrounds  set.

Distress oxide background and layering up of the cut out water coloured stamped flowers and leaves.

January 2020 Hobby Art Samples

A new Year and some new stamp sets from Hobby Art.

Colin The Robin

I stamped this picture onto watercolour paper using using masks, in memento desert sand as I wanted a pale outline. It was then watercoloured in layers to build up depth in the painting.I then added a simple card frame to finish it off.

The next sample was also watercoloured  this time I added stencilling to the background the wall was stencilled using texture paste, i cut out an arch over frame and placed it onto the top. I coloured and cut out the ivy leaves from the stamp set shaped them to make them 3D and added them to the card using gel medium.

I made a mixed media tag using one the flowers from the set I stamped  it twice and layered them on top of each other. the background was made using stencils and texture paste . to this added Tim Holtz distress crayons to colour the card.

December With Hobby Art

December With Hobby Art.
So it's my last post of Design Team samples for 2019. This month we have 3 new sets.

Village Post

I love coloring on kraft with my pencils as it gives a soft vintage look, This stamp set is perfect for creating the look.

The Robin and postbox on this card was water coloured  I added a die cut over the robin to give it an open frame effect, then the snowflakes and postbox were stamped and embossed with rangers detail silver powder.

The same stamp set was used for this next card, but I chose to colour the scene with alcohol pens, and changed the season by colouring the trees and grass. some patterned papers behind to finish off the card.


I made an Advent Book for Beckie, she's getting her new Puppy just after Christmas and I wanted to send her a little gift.
Coloured with alcohol pens.

I designed a mobile phone shaped card, and used this stamp set to create a picture to display on it.

Monster Birthday

What a fun set to use, you can literally go crazy with colour.
Z fold Card works well with the set and some patterned papers.

This card I used some oxide inks to create a soft stencilled background.

I Designed a chest of drawers as I thought it would be a cute idea to have the little monsters playing in the drawers, the bunting i made buy cutting out the spikes from one of the monsters.
