More Hobby Art Samples

Good morning, did you see the lovely Jenny from Hobby Art on Create & Craft yesterday? If you did, you witnessed a real treat of demoing magic! What Jenny can do with the 'Wink of Stella', well just blooming wonders!
Here are a couple more of my samples that she kindly shared on the TV.
Firstly, I have created a scene, using the gorgeous set 'Woodland Scenes', there are so many great little stamps on these sets.
Next, a quick little card using the very popular 'Owls' set, which I think flew and sold out lol!
This little card was made using the 'Woodland Scenes' again

If you would like any of these gorgeous stamps or some 'Wink of Stella' pens, just pop on over via HERE - go fill your boots or baskets even lol!
Thanks for stopping by, hope you have liked my cards today.

Winter Robin

Happy Friday to you!
I have been a bit of a quiet blogger this week, I have been up to my eyes in DT samples so haven't had much time to get on here, let alone load anything lol.
Anyhow, here is a little card I made, using the gorgeous new Hobby Art - 'Winter Robin' stamp.  The 'Happy Christmas' sentiment is from a great set called 'Winter Wishes'.  Both sets can be purchased from the Hobby Art website HERE.
Am so chuffed, as I have nearly got all of my Christmas presents sorted yesterday.  I had a day out of the house and spent it shopping and am so relieved to have nearly completed the task. The shops are getting quite busy already.  I even got the Turkey Crown and most of the food which is now filling the freezer, so had a large Costa with one of those gorgeous new 'Brie & Bacon' Panini's, well sometimes you just have to treat yourself lol!
Have a great weekend and keep warm and thanks for stopping by!

My Owl Cards

Good evening, am sharing a couple of cards I have made recently using two gorgeous little owl images from Little Claire.
Firstly, here is my DT card for the new challenge that started on Saturday, the theme being 'Christmas'.  There is a great prize up for grabs, if you want to join in, just pop on over
I have used some gorgeous papers from a 'First Edition' paper pad and teamed up with kraft card and lots of stickles.
Secondly, 'Little Owl Family' image has been used on my 'Little Claire Likes' card.  I have used a festive paper pad called 'Nordic Christmas'.  This little stamp isn't a Christmas image, so I covered over the flowers with small snowflakes.

Back to my craft room, have lots of dt work to get done.
Have a great evening!

Bertie & Robins

Happy Friday to you!
Firstly, welcome to my new followers - thank you for joining in my blog.  I will be over to visit yours soon.
Here is a little card that I am sharing using a few of the stamps from the new sets from Hobby Art.
I have mixed and matched the stamps together and have stamped the snowflake around the edge of the white card and then again in the centre of the sentiment.

The stamps I have used on my card are :

New Swirlball Flowers Stamp set

Good evening,
am sharing a couple of DT cards that I have made for Little Claire using the gorgeous new November Club Stamp - 'Swirlball Flowers'.
I have made two very different cards using the set, the first above has been made by stamping one of the little flowers all around the kraft card.  I have them decoupaged the larger image added smaller ones to the centre and sentiment on the card.

The card above has been left quite plain. I have just stamped up the central image, coloured in and decoupaged a couple of the flowers and added tiny pearls to their centres.
The sentiment on this set are so lovely, just right for friend cards.  If you want to purchase the set/join the club etc., you can see the set via HERE
Will be back tomorrow with my Ali Craft DT card for the new Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by,
