Hobby Art Stamps Cards

I designed these cards for a class I taught last weekend using some of the new Hobby Art stamps.

The blue and orange card uses the insides of envelopes and I have found that even if the envelope is rather crumpled, this disappears when you emboss it using a Cuttlebug folder. I stamped the orange envelope paper first with a Hobby Art flourish stamp and embossed it using the new Victoria folder. The white square was embossed on one side with the Frills set of borders.

The blue and purple card uses scrapbook paper, one Anna Griffin and one unknown. The corners are punched with a Woodware punch and the butterfly was cut from an old illustration book I found (a real bargain at £2.50 with over 300 butterfly coloured sketches).

The orange and cream card has a manila tag embossed with the Cuttlebug Textile folder, a panel stamped with the Hobby Art Shakespeare Sonnet stamp and an orange embossed panel. The flower has been stamped on orange, peach and white card and pieces cut out to layer up. The white leaves were painted with Olive Vine H20 paint.
