Hobby Art - Create & Craft TV - Card Samples

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Am sharing a rather long post to show, my Hobby Art blog project and also some cards that are going on the TV this afternoon onto Create & Craft (2pm to be precise) with the lovely Jenny Mayes.

There will be lots and lots of wonderful inspiration from the DT. I am sure Becki will be uploading lots of our cards/projects on the website, Facebook and Pinterest today, should you not be able to see the programme.
Anyway, firstly here is a card using one of the new gorgeous sets, designed by the uber talented Sharon Bennett
CS101D - Shells
Secondly, a little card using the gorgeous new
CS100D - Harbour Village
CS038D - By The Sea (Sentiment set)
This third set, has to be my favourite of them all. Cute images - beach huts, little flip flops and seagulls - just gorgeous!
CS102D - Summer Holiday
I have altered a 'Tando - Printer Tray', using the stamps and sentiments set. I have also used some lovely Paper Artsy paints to decorate. These trays are also featured on the tv programme today.
Here is the front
and inside
Loving the seagulls in the set, think they should be named 'Cliff' and 'Richard' after his great film 'Summer Holiday' lol!
Lastly, here is the card that has been featured on the Hobby Art blog over the bank holiday weekend. It was made using the gorgeous 'Monthly Special' for April set - Lavender!
CS097D - Lavender

Hope you have managed to grab yourself some of these fabby new sets today.

Mission Accomplished Project for The Craft Barn Blog

Good morning,

Am sharing my 'Mission Accomplished' blog project card for The Craft Barn today.

As we are celebrating 70 years since VE Day, my card has been made using the fabulous 'Hobby Art' stamp set - 'Commemorative'.

Such a wonderful set, full of poignant images.

I have made a fold card using lots of black, red and white card.  I have stamped the smaller poppy stamp all around and stamped and cut out the larger poppies, covering them with glossy accents.

A full list of products and instructions for my card can be found HERE on The Craft Barn blog.

Let us never forgot all of the wonderful men and woman who gave their lives for us in war,

'At the going down of the sun
and in the morning
We will remember them'

Have a wonderful weekend, thanks for stopping by!
