Lovely layered card by designer Deborah Nolan

Hey, there - Deborah here! Glad you could join me again on the Hampton Art blog.
Today I decided to go in a different direction (for me) because I wanted to use the Graphic 45 Parfumerie stamp set that Hampton Art distributes, and it’s very vintage looking.  I love this set because it’s so versatile with three different little stamps to put in the center of your perfume bottle.

Although I love the shabby chic/distressed style, I rarely employ it when making cards. So, in the immortal words of Monty Python….
 And now for something completely different!
