Hobby Art releases are perfect for female birthdays10th June 2018
Issue 178 saw the return of Hobby Art to Simply Cards & Papercraft, and we’re so pleased to have them back in the mag with its stunning Hydrangea stamp set over on page 42 of the magazine, but here is an exclusive idea using the stamps just for you.
You will need
Hobby Art Hydrangea stamp set
white 12cm-square card blank
white 10.5cm-square watercolour card
black VersaFine inkpad
Crystal Ranger Stickles glitter glue
Pinflair Glue gel
Clean Color pens
manual die-cutting machine
Marianne Design Craftables Distressed Square dies
1 Stamp individual flowers randomly over 10.5cm-square piece of watercolour cardstock using a Onyx Black inkpad.
2 Colour the flowers using three shades of violet Clean Color pens. Apply colour to the outside edge of the card going in towards centre of the card front. Use a wet paintbrush to blend and dilute the colour out.
3 Die-cut two squares of white cardstock one to measure approximately 5.5cm and one to measure 4.5cm. Colour the largest die-cut using the darkest violet pen. Colour around the edge only to create a border.
4 Stamp the ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment centrally onto the white die-cut using black ink and layer onto the purple die-cut. Adhere the watercolour panel onto the card front and mount the sentiment on top.
5 Add Stickles glitter glue around the outside edge of ‘Happy Birthday’ panel to finish.
