Hello , Elaine here, I hope everyone is staying safe and well in these uncertain times.
I was looking through some of my older Hobby art sets and was inspired to do a vintage style Easter Card project for you all.
I next selected 2 circle dies to cut out a frame of Kraft card that fit on top of the hare. I used my Marianne basics dies and selected the 2 largest dies.
Next I cut a smaller piece of Kraft card and using the same ink I stamped some Daffodils into 2 bunches from the Spring Scenes stamp set. I then fussy cut the daffodils using scissors.
You should now have stamped Hair Stamped and cut out daffodils and a die cut circle.
Now its time to colour, I used my Prismacolours, the shades are used are shown in the photograph.
Once the Images are coloured its time to assemble the card. using a craft knife I carefully cut around the top of the Hares ears . I placed the hare onto a foam mad and using my embossing tool I carefully shaped the ears to give them some dimension. I used some Walnut stain distress ink to edge around the frame. I added some 3d foam to the back of it and carefully placed it over the Hare and behind his ears.
The next step is adding some 3d foam tape to the back of the daffodils, I lined them up to the bottom of the card and positioned them over the top of the frame.
Next I stamped the “Happy Easter” from the Spring has Sprung stamp set onto a die cut banner that was edge inked and placed it above the hare.
Final step is to mat onto some coloured card I chose a soft vintage yellow and again I inked around the edges of the kraft and yellow card and placed it onto a card blank.
What a busy show on the 27th of February 2019 over on

(2) Stamp the image onto the watercolour card with ‘London Fog’ Memento Ink so that the start of the branch is touching the left-hand edge of the card. Mask off the image with the Mask and also use strips of the Mask-It to keep a border around the card.
(3) Mix a small amount of the Platinum Inca-Gold into the Empty Spray Bottle. Add water and mix well to create a shimmering spray.

(8) Using 3D Foam attach the image panel to the front of the card and add white gems in various sizes to the middle of some of the snowflakes to finish.
Hi everyone Laura with you all today, hope you all watched the fab shows with Jenny in June.
I thought I’d share a make with you, with my favourite of the new stamps Floral mix,
To start with I made a 6×6 card blank and cut a layer of blue card stock to mat onto the card base.
I then used one of my Tim Holtz stencils and added the pattern with texture paste.
Stamp each flower out twice with versa ink pad and heat emboss with white embossing powder, when colour in using your preferred alcohol ink pens.
Place the flowers layered up around a circle die cut with the sentiment stamped on it to finish,
hope you enjoyed todays card

What a beautiful Spring day it has turned into. It seems that just at the moment we are getting one glorious day followed by one that is overcast and threatening rain.
It was the same last week when I walked Emma to Caterham in brilliant sunshine, she even had her sunglasses on and looked very cute, and the next day we needed our wellie boots.
Hey ho it is still early I suppose, so anything could happen on the weather front.
I think one of the best things about this time of year are all the beautiful daffodils which show that Spring really is here.
Jenny at Hobby Art took a beautiful Daffodil stamp set on to Hochanda recently CS162D Daffs and Bells.
I stamped and embossed the daffodils onto white card stock and then coloured them with Decorating Chalks and a cotton wool ball.
After fussy cutting them out I mounted them on to my card using silicon glue.
The central panel on the card has been stamped and embossed using one of the verses from CS156D Seasons.
I used one of my many shaped dies to cut out the sentiment, adding a little colour with the die still in place, before layering it on to the card
over a similarly shaped and dry embossed panel.
I hop that we don’t continue with the one day nice, one day horrid pattern tomorrow as I am off to see my Mum. I have to admit that it usually seems to rain when I visit her, especially when I have to walk from the station, so I will remember to take my rain coat with me.
Have a good evening, and enjoy the sunshine.
Perfect for Mother’s day. Easter. Birthdays or Get well cards this set pretty much cover all your bases a good staple to have as a go to set when you’re stuck as to what to do ….
Here I have uses the two single daffs to make a wreath the smaller fussier ones underneath …. My preference but you could swap them round or even stamp alternate ones if you wished by simply mask off and stamping over part of the mask ….The word are a good sized HAPPY with easter Birthday and Mother’s day. And Daffs and Bells do scream spring xxx Hope you like my offering. Spring has sprung xx

Hello Everyone . Hope you have all had a chance to look at our lovely new monthly special set.
It’s adorable I fell in love with this set as soon as I opened it. There are so many different kind of ducks … from elegant White Runners … the the more heavy Muscovy ducks and with Crested Ducks and Mallards and everything in between a duck is not just a duck ….For those who don’t know Ian’s Mum Lives over in france …. retired out there 20 plus years ago and keeps ducks . In their time out there they have had so many different kinds …. My Fave was Cindy who kind of turned up one day and adopted them …. made herself at home and would come and go as she pleased but would never go in the Duck house overnight …She was a Muscovy Duck and boy she was full of attitude. on one of our many trips over there we were asked to go to a duck farm …. I didn’t realise at the time but all the ducks there were being bred for Foie gras pate. Rory pick up a baby duck and the farmer gave it to him … Jamie had another one … those two Goliath ducks never made it to the table in the way of pate…. but lived a very good life on M.I.L’s farm and lived to a ripe old age….. One was Donald the other Quakers.
Hope you enjoy this set as much as I have done and hope you like the card here … it’s a card for someone so I hope they like it x
I hope you like it too x

Ok so that’s a bit of an update and I will post December’s Monthly Special Separately.
Happy Saturday. I hope that you will soon be settling down to watch the first of Hobby Art Jenny’s shows on Hochanda (Sky channel 663) at 10am, followed by two more at 2pm and 5pm.
I had a fabulous time, as always, playing with the new designs.
Here is just one of the cards that I made.
The central panel has been created by dabbing a dye based inks pad (Denim Kaleidacolour multicoloured pad) onto an acrylic block.
Spritz with water and then place the block on to a piece of watercolour cardstock as if it were a stamp.
Once this panel was dry I stamped and embossed the feather onto it using black Versafine ink and clear embossing powder.
I painted the image with a wet paintbrush and then used kitchen roll to remove the ink.
Once I achieved a depth of colour that I liked I painted the image with a clear Wink of Stella brush.
The background to the card was created using both the sentiment stamped and embossed in black, and another of the feathers from the set stamped with versafine and then dusted with Pearlex Powder.
I hope that you enjoy the shows today.
I look forward to seeing what the rest of the DT have come up with to inspire you. It always amazes me how different everyones creations are.
Have a great day.
Happy Crafting and hugs
My name is Franka and I’ve been a Hobby Art Design Team member for several years. Because I live in the Netherlands my English isn’t my best part, so normally I only design cards. But I heard that there where many questions about my cards, so I’ve made a blogpost for you to explain one of them. I have used a lot of photos because I hope they give you more information than my English text 🙂
Before we start here is a list with materials that you need:
– white card 10 x 15 cm
– brown cardstock
– sticky paper
– a stencil with an 8 cm circle
– some extra paper to tear a mountain
– Memento Ink: Rich Cacao and London Fog
– Versafine Ink: Vintage Sepia
– Versamark Ink
– WOW embossing powder: Opaque Bright White or any other white embossing powder
– Adirondack Ink: Caramel and Stonewash
– Hobby Art Stamp sets: Nature Trail and Christmas Post
– Distress Ink: Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Weathered Wood, Black Soot, Ground Espresso, Tumbled Glass and Antique Linen
Place the stencil with the circle over your card. Sponge the lower part of the circle with Distress Ink Antique Linen. Sponge the upper part with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass.
Tear some paper to use for the mountains. Sponge the mountains with Adirondack Caramel and don’t use too much ink. On the photo you see I used the mountain paper 3 times.
When you begin to sponge the mountains begin with the lowest one, then the central one and end with the highest one.
Take some sticky paper and cut a circle of 4 cm. This is your sun. Place this sun somewhere half behind your mountains. Sponge with Adirondack Stonewash around this sun. Beware of putting blue ink into your mountains. On the photo you see where you have to sponge.
At the end sponge some extra ink around the edges of the circle to create more depth. Sponge Distress Ink Vintage Photo for the lowest part and Adirondack Stonewash Ink for the upper part.
Now starts the stamping part. The Hobby Art stamp sets I’ve used are:
Now you can remove your sticky paper sun. When you stamp the small pine tree you have to use the teared mountain paper again. I stamped the small pine tree with Memento London Fog. You start stamping with the most highest tree on the left site.
Then you stamp the small deer with Memento Rich Cocoa. Place her at the right site of your landscape and just stamp a part of her. Now it looks like she looks around the corner.
After that you stamp the large pine tree with Memento Rich Cocoa too. Stamp this tree in between the small pine trees and the small deer.
Now you can remove your torn paper for the next step. Stamp the small dove near the sun. I stamped it with Memento London Fog.
At the bottom of the circle I stamped some small ‘bushes’ with Adirondack Caramel. Use not only the first print, but also the second print too. This gives more depth in your landscape.
Now you can remove your circle stencil. Take the Post stamp of the Christmas Post stamp set and stamp it at the right upper corner of your circle. I stamped it with Memento Rich Cocoa.
On this photo you see how your landscape could look like, but feel free to play with other landscape designs.
Now you start with the colour section.
The small deer and the dove I coloured with Derwent colour Pencils. You have to colour it with pencils because it is stamped with Memento Ink. This is a water based ink and gives a reaction with Distress Ink, for example.
I stamped the birch trunk and the big deer on watercolor paper. I stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia so I can colour it in with Distress Ink or other water based Inks or Zig Markers. The colours I used for the birch and the big deer are: Distress Inks Weathered Wood, Black Soot, Ground Espresso, Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo.
When you finish your coloring, give the birch and the deer their right position on your card. Now you can see where you have to stamp the sentiment Winter Wishes. I stamped this sentiment with Versafine Vintage Sepia.
The next step is to white emboss the snowflakes. You can emboss them randomly on your card, but always choose an odd number, for example 3 or 5 snowflakes. When you emboss these snowflakes you hardly see them. To make them more visible put a little Distress Ink around them. I used Distress Ink Weathered Wood. But be careful!!!! Use a very, very little ink.
At the end I drew some lines around the mountains with a silver pen. It looks like a thin layer of snow. And I draw some snowflakes with 3 small points close together.
When you´re happy with the results, you glue the birch and the big deer on your card. Mat your card on brown cardstock and you have a wonderful winter or Christmas card.
I hope you enjoy this step-by-step tutorial and we look forward to seeing your results.
I hope that you have had another great summer day.
I prepared this post nearly a fortnight ago, but you know me and technology we are not the best of friends. I lost all of the links to the Hobby Art website and it has taken ages to get them sorted out, so my apologies for not posting this before now.
I was lucky enough to be invited by Hobby Art Jenny to teach at the workshop at the beginning of the month. Good food, wonderful products to play with, and 32 enthusiastic ladies, what a great way to spend the day.
I taught two workshops in the morning to half of the group and then after a rather tasty lunch they swapped tables to work with Jenny while I taught the same two classes to the rest of the group.
It turned into a gloriously hot day and so of course I had typically chosen Autumn and Christmas themed cards lol.
The first workshop was about masking using the fabulous Falling Leaves stamp set and the Mask-it sheet from Woodware.
I just love leaves, I’m definitely an Autumn girlie.
I was very good and finished off all of the bits and pieces when I got home so there are several more samples to share with you than I had prepared for the ladies.
Of course there was shopping to be done throughout the day so a fabulous leafy die set fell into my basket.
I think that it had only just arrived, Becki was frantically pricing things, so I’m not sure if it has even made it on to the website yet.
The second part of the masking class used a strip of masking tape across the middle of the card instead of fussy cut leaves.
This card used a double strip of tape and then some fussy cut and coloured leaves to embellish the edges.
I had such fun with this stamp set, and as you can see I have added several cards suitable for men to my card stash.
I think I will share the second class in a separate post so as not to overwhelm you with pictures.
Have a great evening.
It’s been ages since I have blogged for Hobby Art . So sorry and yes I have missed you ….so much has happened at home it’s been a mad few months ….so back with you again now and I would love to share a few makes with you just showcasing a few of the older stamp sets …you know the ones you buy think ….that’ will come in useful then put away and forget about.
So I thought I would do a step by step guide if you like to how to use our wonderful Scene it stamps …the Beauty with these is you can pretty much use them with each other as they work if you interchange them .let me show you what I mean .
First I’m going to use a 7×7 square card and Sprinkle Talcum powder over it then edge the card with masking tape NOT the permanent kind the temporary one ! otherwise you will tear your card!
You can use a tumble dryer sheet or a chalk bag to dust the card with Talc is just my own preference ….
Ink and stamp you main image then I like to sprinkle clear embossing powder over the top and heat emboss ….that allows me to use any medium to colour without the ink bleeding.
I have then added a tree stamp and the deer from Nature trail , heat embosses those too and then added a post it circle over the house to create the sun ….I wanted a sunset …..
Making a cloud mask to do my clouds I use 5p’s, pound coins and an egg cup for the bigger circles.
Placing the mask where I want the clouds to go…Lightly Blend either with a blending tool or brushes. Move the mask Blending the colour as you go.
You should end up with something like this .
Add different greens to finish and colour the houses and the deer …Finally I stamped the blackbirds.
A bit of matting
A squiggly line just because. And add to your card stock ….sorted job done .
Next time I will try for a longer more panoramic view using different sets not just trees and animals
But for now Lovely Peeps crafty hugs xxx

Hello everyone, Alexandra here.
When I received Januarys monthly special stamp set “Vintage Flowers in the post I nearly squealed like a piggy in the mud with joy as it is just so beautiful. It seems so perfect for colouring in and as that is one of my passions I couldn’t wait to play with it!
When I finally had the time to do it I looked at the images and wondered what colours I wanted to use to colour in the flowers. And because I couldn’t decide I started playing with a layout without colouring it yet. I used bright pink card, black felt trim, a tiny bit of black card and of course my white panel stamped with the large flower in Versafine Black, all on a plain white A5 card base.
When I was done I loved it so much the way it was I just couldn’t add any colour to it. To me it was just perfect without and I hope you feel the same. I am totally in love with this set and I think will use this loads of times from now on. Maybe I will even colour it some day… hehe! But for now it stays clean and simple, which kind of is my style anyway!
Hope you like my offering today and have a lovely rest of January – don’t forget you can get this stamp set as the monthly special now, don’t miss it!
Not much happening on the crafting front here again I’m afraid, so I thought that I would share a couple of cards that I made for the Hobby Art DT retreat way back in November.
Wow that seems such a long time ago now.
We spent a fabulous weekend sharing ideas with one another and doing far too much eating lol.
Jenny asked us all to share something with the rest of the Team, so I chose a quick and easy background technique, which is also a great way to use up ink that is left on your craft sheet after sponging.
Like all crafters I hate to waste anything so I keep a stash of card scraps on my desk ready to mop up any leftover ink.
I used some of these scraps to create these cards adding stamping, colouring and even a bit of stencilling before attaching them to plain white card stock.
Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy as the Grandkids would say.

Hello Everyone …Sorry for not blogging I have had a few health issues the last couple of months and have not been on top of my game because of it …however back on the horse as they say and feeling much better so here as promised is a blog post showcasing the wonderful Robins set . they were November’s Monthly Special Stamp set made in grey rubber they stamp out beautifully I like to heat emboss my cards as I think it gives a more defined look it also helps the colouring too I find. I had a quick play and the robins do make a great stand alone stamp with nothing added. But that would be to easy ….and I do like my backgrounds…..Sky …clouds ….no I wanted something christmassy ….So I pulled out a few snowflakes from the snowflakes set and for the Robins. Then I found a stencil in the shape of a snowflake from my stash Tah Dah! perfect . A Quick Merry Christmas also from Hobby art and with brushes inks and a few pro-makers I was good to go.
So there we are Two of the lovely Robin’s set and my take on them …not clouds but the snowflake works I think . Hope you like it too
Wishing you all Health Wealth and Happiness and may you have all you want around your tree….for me that will be family. So have a Very Merry Christmas And I look forward to crafting with you all in the new year.
Merry Christmas Bernie xxxxx
