Hexagon Thank You

I finally got around to taking pictures of the projects from my last stamp club and getting them edited so I could post them.

I always feel that you need a few sets in your stamp collection that work with any sentiment or kind of card.  Since Circle Circus retired I think the new Six Sided Sampler fits that bill!  Another one that works also with a bit more of a feminine flair is Mosaic Madness.  A few basic shapes, a punch and coordinating embossing folder and the sky's the limit to how many different cards you can make just by changing the sentiment!

When I was designing this project I was in a time crunch to get it done before I headed out of town on vacation.  I used this cool sketch challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments from a few weeks back to help me along in my creative process.

 The base is Crumb Cake and then a layer of Gumball Green Core'dinations that was embossed with the Honeycomb folder and then sanded a bit.  Next I stamped a few Pool Party striped hexagons and punched them out of Core'dinations cardstock as well.  I used the punch again on some Epic Day DSP (love these designs!).  I positioned the punched hexagons to match the sketch.

  For the tag I used the new Lots of Thanks set for the sentiment.  And here's something really cool!!!  You can use the hexagon punch to flag the ends of a banner!  So cool!  A length of Crumb Cake seam binding and a knot finish this card.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
