Stepember 2019 Hobby Art Stuff

Hello all, can't believe Octobers just around the corner, this moth Autums in the air with the new stamp sets from Hobby Art.

British Wildlife

My first card is coloured with pencils, it must have taken me over 6 hours to colours in and the time just flew by.



Not something I've done before but here's a few snapshots of my progress when I was colouring.







From the same stamp set using the squirrel and mouse I made a little nut box, coloured with distress oxides.




I fancied making a pink rabbit so I did! watercolours on watercolour card.



Winter Woodland

Winter style coloured with promarkers I made a shaker box.





Autum Style, coloured with distress Oxides



Cottage Garden

Coloured with pencils simply layered to make an effective card.




I wanted to try a softer more vintage look so I stamped onto parchment and did a couple of layers.

August 2019 Hobby Art Christmas

August 2019 Hobby Art Christmas Samples, So this month we have two new stamp sets and some old favourites.

Snowman Bundle Bertie and Archie


These are some old favourites from hobby Art . The stamps are coloured with promarkers. I made the papers for the suitcase frames using stencils distress inks and luna paste. The straps  and buckles I designed myself on my scan and cut. 






Dudley does Christmas

Such a a fun set and lovely to colour. I coloured my Dudley stamped images with  promarkers .

I designed a tree stencil and used this to make the trees in the background, I then stamped over the distress ink trees with the bauble from the stamp set. Next I stamped and coloured in my Dudley images and  cut them out. these were then positioned and glued onto the strip of the Z card.




I wanted to make a shaker card for next sample, so I designed a gift box shape on my scan and cut . I assembled it using some gold and silver sequin shapes, then used a couple of heart dies to add a sentiment and a robin to the card.





There are many Dudley images in the set and I thought a nice way to use them all in the same card was to make a waterfall card. 




Floral Robin


This is a lovely set to use and the robin has some lovely detail if you like to colour.

this card was coloured with pencils i used embossing powder to make the snow and the background was stencilled very lightly with metallic inks.



I was really happy how clean and simple this card looks sticking to white and gold. the robin is embossed with gold embossing powder then I used the other robin tail to make some petals and made a flower using the snowflake for a centre. white glitter embossing powder was used to make a line of trees across the background of the card.




   I thought the trees were lovely just on there own so using only the trees and snowflakes I stamped onto blue card and embossed with a white glitter . For a simple but effective card.




And finally I stamped a row of birds in different colour metallic ink over a stencilled background and added crowns for a quick and easy Birthday Card.

Christmas In July with Hobby Art

So Christmas in July is here again, time for some festive samples.

Christmas Green Things

Such a fun set this is the Quirky Christmas set from Hobby Art  featuring spouts, you either love or hate em ! Personally i'm a big fan , love them.

The background was made using the Festive Backgrounds stamp set, and embossing glitters. I coloured the sprouts with pencils then gave them a coat of glossy accents to make them shine, finished with a couple of embossed strips of rainbow mirri card.




my next card is also coloured with pencils I made a small pocket for the front and stamped and coloured a tag to pop in to it.


So sprouts are not only for xmas I just could not resist making a vampire sprout.
the sentiment stamps are from the new Do Not Open Until Christmas
stamp set. Coloured pencils were used.


Coloured pencils and a stenciled background


Then I stacked up some sprouts and made a christmas bookmark.


Country Ways

I went for a vintage look with this card using some nice papers, the scene was watercoloured.
The sentiment was made from the Christmas Post stamp set.






Robin Set

This set is a rubber stamp set consisting of two good sized stamps.



The Christmas Post set was used in the background of this vintage Robin Tag




Nature Trail


An older set but a firm favourite. Coloured with pencil and set into a Tonic Die Cut frame.

June 2019 with Hobby Art

June with Hobby Art, so this moth I have used 3 new stamps sets from Hobby Art one set is a larger version of a very popular older set.

Jenny Wren


As you may know I love doing large Tags, so I could not resist using the trio of wrens from the stamp set. I stamped the wrens, coloured them with Clean colour pens, then embossed them from the back to give them some dimension. stencil and texture paste to give some dimension to the background.






For my next card , I coloured the wren and nest with coloured pencils and added it onto some layers to give a vintage feel.





Flowers and wrens coloured with Coloured pencils on Tone Tan paper.




Get Your Goat


A Simple card using photo frames  and Watercolour paints on Hobby Art Watercolour Card



You Old Goat card, stamps coloured with promarkers





Girly Goat Tag

I can never seem to resist adding eyelashes to animals !  stamped then coloured with pencils and added some stickles into the die cut tag for a bit of sparkle.



Harbour A5


This is an older set that has been resized. Coloured pencils, and distress ink Harbour scene picture.
The dies I used around the frame are a set Called Ropes1 by Elizabeth Crafts






The tonic dies were such a good fit for the harbour stamp set. Coloured pencils again with nuvo drops and stickles used in the die cut areas.
