More Hobby Art Christmas Cards........

Hi everyone, Kirsten here, hope your week is going well so far. I'm standing in for Lisa today as she didn't get time to write her post before she left for Exeter, where she and Sue will be demoing for Imagination Crafts at the Hobbycrafts show over the next four days.

Today's cards are two more of the samples she made for the September class, using Hobby Art stamp sets;

 Round Robins
The Holly & The Ivy 
Christmas Poinsettia 
Christmas Frosting

For the first card she created a simple background using the Imagination Diamonds stencil & Distress inks - Antique Linen & Bundled Sage, if I remember correctly - she added faux stitching with a fine line black pen.

She stamped a tiny snowflake from the Christmas Frosting set with Candied Apple Distress ink & a sentiment from the same set with Onyx Black Versafine on a die cut circle of white card, blending Antique Linen DI around the edge. 

The holly & the robin were coloured with Spectrum Aqua pens (reduced on the website) & cut out. Lisa applied Diamond Sparkle Medium to each piece by tapping it on with her finger. That gives a very thin layer which dries in seconds............

Her second card is another penny slider card, this time creating a circle for the poinsettia to go around. She had to hand cut the circle as her circle cutting dies weren't the right size. The rest of the card follows the layout & method of the class project card..........

She coloured the poinsettias with Spectrum Aqua pens, scribbling the colour on a tile first, then using water & a paintbrush to create washes of colour.

  1. I do love a fat robin! He is a happy chappie. Love the text stamps too. Fab idea with the Diamond Sparkle Medium, looks very good used like that compared to other products I have used for the same effect; will have to use that idea!
