Hi there lovely peeps

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 .

and CS138D Nature Trail


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
