Hobby Art "Town House Scene-Its - CS010D" Christmas Card


I'm on a roll with my third card today, this time I've swung straight in to Christmas!

I stamped the trees and the house using two shades of Versafine Clair inks:  Morning Mist and Shady Lane, using second generation stamping. I've used two Hobby Art stamp sets.  One is called "Town Houses CS0101D", sadly I don't know the name of the other set as I've had it for a very long time.

I coloured the image using various shades of Distress Oxide Inks, applied with a paint brush.  The colours I used were". Stormy Sky, Tumbled Glass, Antique Linen, Weathered Wood, Lost Shadow and Festive Berries.

I used Dr PH Martin's Bleed Proof white paint to create the snow using a fan shaped paint brush.  I also added touches of white gel pen to the trees. Finally, stamping the sentiment, using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.


  1. Such a pretty seasonal card Sam you these stamps from Hobby Art, and love the softish misty look to the background and the white ink makes great falling snow, it really houses that cold winter feel. x

  2. Beautiful card Sam, doesn't matter what you use or make it turns out great xx

  3. A beautiful traditional style Christmas cottage and card
