In The Forest


Hello, today I have a card to share with you that uses Hobby Art's Nature Trail and Bluebell Wood stamp sets.

The card has three panels, of which the top two have apertures through which you can see the background scene.


 I have stamped the images with 'Tuxedo Black' Memento Ink and coloured them with Copic Markers and a white Gel Pen. I also cut a variety of die cuts and also coloured them with the Copic Markers.

                                    Joy Crafts Edge Mushrooms Die
                                    Crafts Too Leaf Border Die

I also used a Maple Leaf Craft Punch.


I used Kraft card for the base and the patterned papers are from the 'Owl's Field' paper pad by Joy Crafts. I also used some 'Rich Gold' Starlights paint by Imagination Crafts to add some sparkle and some Photo corners for a finishing detail.

I hope you like this card and thanks for visiting.

In The Garden


Hello, today I have a card to share with you that uses Hobby Art's August Monthly Special stamp set In The Garden.

I stamped the images using London Fog Memento Ink and masked them with Hobby Art Mask-it. I did a splatter effect background using Kuretake Gansai Tambi and when this had dried I then removed the Mask-it. I then water coloured the images using the Gansai Tambi and added white Gel Pen details and a stitched border with a brown pen.

I added a strip of white card towards the bottom of the card and overlaid a slightly wider strip of vellum, which I wrapped around the card and added white stitched details with the gel pen. I then mounted this onto the Kraft card base using Foam Tape.

I also stamped the main image with London Fog and painted it with the Gansai Tambi and white Gel pen. When dry, I stamped and embossed in White the 'In The' stamp from Hobby Arts Greenfingers sentiment stamp set and cut out leaving a slim white border. I then stamped the 'Garden' sentiment on Kraft card and embossed with Black Embossing Powder, before trimming up and attaching both to the card with Foam Tape to finish.

I hope you like this card and thanks for visiting.

Nature Trail Gate Fold Card



Hi, today I have a tutorial on how I made this aperture double gate fold card using Hobby Art's Nature Trail stamp set.

I first made the card base from two 6 x 6 inch square cards by folding the front of each card backwards in half. I then glued the backs of the card together to form the three panels for the card. I then die cut a rectangle out of each side panel.

I then added patterned papers from Joy Crafts and added some stamped pine trees to the papers and created some snow with white card.

I stamped the animals and trees from the Nature Trail stamp set with 'Tuxedo Black' Memento Ink and water coloured them before cutting  out. I then played around with the positioning of the trees and animals until I was happy before gluing to the card with glue and 3D Foam. I also made sure that the trees that were covering the die cut areas were coloured on both sides.

I added some Ivy to the trees with a green gel pen, snow with a white gel pen and some Woodware White Fluffy Stuff for a finishing touch along with a sentiment.

I hope you like this card and thanks for visiting.

Reindeer Christmas


Hi, today I have a card to share with you that use the Poinsettia stamp set from Hobby Art and also one of their wood cut reindeer shapes.

I started by covering the reindeer with a coat of Pearl acrylic paint and allowing to dry before adding a blanket from patterned paper. I used Woodware White Fluffy Stuff to add a 'fur border' to the blanket and added detail to the deer with a black gel pen.

For the background I stamped some winter trees onto some patterned paper (all from K and Company) and embossed with Winter Wonderland embossing powder from Stampendous. I also die cut some trees using a die from Marianne Designs and embossed them with Winter Wonderland. I ripped a piece of white paper and applied clear glitter for the snow and cut the frame, also from 
Marianne Designs and added Pearl acrylic paint. 

I layered the background onto a number of different papers, edging them with the clear glitter and added some blue rhinestones to the corners. I then added these to a Kraft card base and lined with the matching papers and the 'Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas' stamp from Hobby Arts Merry Little Christmas stamp set. 

I stamped the Poinsettia onto some vellum and embossed with the Winter Wonderland Embossing Powder, then cut out and layered them for a 3 dimensional effect and added some teal micro beads to the centres. I also stamped some leaves from the Poinsettia stamp set onto scraps of the Patterned paper, embossed and cut out. The white branches are from the £ shop and I have added glitter to them for a snowy look. I added these and the reindeer to the card to finish.

I hope you like this card and thanks for stopping by.

Floral Wreath


Hello, today I have a wreath to share with you that uses Hobby Arts Star of Bethlehem stamp set. To flowers were stamped with Versamark ink onto vellum and embossed with white powder. I then used Arteza coloured pencils to colour them before cutting them out and layering two together.  I finished by adding some orange glitter to the centre of the flowers.

The wreath was made using a wire frame, dried twigs and craft wire. I sprayed the twigs with a brown metallic spray that I made with Platinum Inka Gold and Brown Acrylic Paint. I also added some touches of Chic Moss texture paste by Cosmic Shimmer for a Mossy look.

The ferns were bought from the pound shop and cut into smaller pieces before being sprayed with a mixture of Platinum Inka Gold and Green Acrylic paint. I then glued these and the flowers into place to finish the wreath.

I hope you like this wreath and thanks for taking the time to visit.

Round Penguins


Hello, today I have two cards to share with you that use the Round Penguins stamp set from Hobby Art which released today on Hochanda. Unfortunately I didn't get these made in time for the show, so I am showing them here instead.

The above card is made using Distress Oxides for the background and the penguin is coloured using watercolour pencils. I also used some Woodware White Fluffy Stuff and Crystal Glitter.

The below card has been water coloured with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Pens with the addition of Starlight's Pearl Metallic Paint from Imagination Crafts and a die cut sentiment.


I hope you like these cards, the images are so cute and wonderful to colour.
Thanks for taking the time to visit.
