My whole summer has gone studying… At the end of last school year I had decided that cleaning and crafting were 2 things I will do over the summer….Cleaning never happened 😛 and crafting happened here and there!! Well… nevertheless summer semester done, a week of road trip enjoyed….and one more week left before work starts, so had to get back to crafting 🙂
Another Birthday card, made using CAS(E) This Sketch’s Challenge #37 The layout was simple…with hexagons. The challenge has passed, but I like the layout.
Another reason I wanted to use this layout was Heidi Swapp’s new stencils available at Michael’s. I know there are many stencils available…but they have super cute designs, they are available in 2 sizes – 6″x6″ and 12″x12″ perfect for cards and scrapbooks. (Let me say, I am not being paid for promoting these stencils 🙂 its all me… always love to experiment with new products and share :D) Apparently these are hot sell in the Michaels near my house.. esp the 6″x6″….most designs were sold out!
So here is my creation using the stencil:
For this card I used the 6″ x 6″ Honeycomb Stencil …. good complement to the Hexagonal Punch 🙂 ….The Hexagon stamp and the punch are Six Sided Sampler Bundle from Stampin’ Up! The little stamps are from Birthday Stamp Set from Art Gone Wild (had bought them from a stamp show years ago).
I simply used a sponge to color in the stencil. The images in the hexagon are stamped with Black Stazon and water colored. Also decided to pop them up using 3-dimensional stickers.
It feels nice to get creative 🙂
Until next time,
