Welcome to our last day of our July release! We hope that you have enjoyed all the cards and inspiration from myself and the designers. Today we are introducing the last but most definitely not least Hexagons stamp set.
I was so excited to get my hands on these Hexagon shapes. I spent many hours in the craft room creating different sizes, patterns and cut files. And when I started stamping, I couldn’t stop! It was so much fun! I have absolutely fallen in love with shapes after this release!
I randomly added these Hexagon Shapes to the corner of my card. Tip: The octagon shapes are slightly larger than the hexagon shapes. This allows you to stamp on the hexagon cut shapes! This means a total of 26 different patterns for our hexagon shapes!
I started with Kraft Paper and then cut this Postage Stamp from my Silhouette. For added layers, I added a doily, some IBS crochet trim, Pink Ribbon and the Fancy Labels 2 stamp with an All Year Wishes I sentiment!
I couldn’t wait to start cutting out all the different cut files that come with this stamp set! Here is one with just the outline of our stamp set on white cardstock. I then added the hexagon shapes on top to create this hexagon border.
I also added our two new sets, Vintage Banners and Everyday Tabs. I also used the sentiments from Birthday Wishes and Mason Jars Add On II.
Here’s a close up of all the different patterns that can be found in this new set!
I added an IBS White Daisy to the top corner. I love how it just adds a little touch of whimsy and the center of the daisy matches the ink that I used. 🙂
I was so excited to mix and match our other Inspired by Stamping sets to see how well they coordinated. And yep they do! Hexagons and Whimsical Banners match perfectly as shown in this card!
I added Victorian Crochet Trim along the bottom of my card with a White Satin Ribbon bow. “Love” sentiment is from our Arrows Stamp Set.
Here’s a close up of all the different patterns from the Hexagon Stamp Set. I love mixing and matching the patterns!
Here is our Inspired by Stamping Hexagon 4’” x 5.25” cover plate or screen that will be available for free on our website, July 10th. I designed this plate to match perfectly with the Hexagons. Here are some examples below on how I used it.
I didn’t quite need the entire screen for the hexagons so I trimmed it to fit my card. I then used images from the Octagons and Hexagons stamp set to create these patterns!
Big Wishes II was used on my extra larger banner. After stamping my sentiment, I then created my banner with some scissors.
I have been testing this new crochet trim all week. What do you think? I also added a White Seam Binding Bow and a Shabby Pink Flower for some glam.
Here is a great card featuring the entire cover plate for this set. It cuts beautifully and adds so much dimension to my card! I love the versatility of this set! You can even make shabby chic cards with it! And for me, that is really important!
I found these purple flowers in my stash and they match perfectly with the paper that I used. I then stamped my tag and sentiment from the Creative Tags set. This set is my go to set! I just love it!
To finish my card, I added a doily and some leaves. I also added white crochet trim and this banner.
I hope that you have enjoyed this month’s release!
