I recently purchased a new stamp set from Stampin Up – Six Sided sampler, along with a hexagon punch, and after i made the card on the previous post I took things a step further, and discarded all my patterned paper to make this card. I used 3 different colours – Smokey slate, bubblegum green and midnight muse ( cardstock and ink pads from Stampin up)and stamped a few hexagons onto cream cardstock which I then punched out. I had a hexagon template so I inked through that and I punched a hexagon out of my top layer so that the greeting would show through. I tied a little bit of string through the hexagon to draw attention to the sentiment.I have an idea in my head now to do one like this in yellow/orange with some butterflies…….Til tomorrow….

I am back after a few days break, we had lovely weather and did a lot of walking and relaxing and I have come back with batteries recharged and itching to get started on lots of new ideas! Todays card is as clean and simple as I can do – I punched some hexagons out of the patterned paper with a stampin up hexagon stamp, and stamped a couple of them with the matching stampin up six-sided sampler stamp set. I had some fun rearranging them on the front of the card and added a few buttons for texture and interest. Til tomorrow….

Quite often the last thing we want to do is make a sympathy card when we need one. I find it’s always handy to have a couple put away for when they are needed, and my rule with sympathy cards is the simpler the better.The card I have done here is a perfect example of my theory. I have used stampin up cardstock – early espresso, crumbcake and very vanilla, and a stampin Up stamp which looks ok even though it’s not coloured – any simple stamp will do – and a simple seam binding bow.I have also subtly inked around all the edges with a brown ink pad ( in this case Stamp in up Early espresso). I had a lovely lesson with my ladies this morning – it’s so good to see them every month, and they are always so good even when I might be a bit vague, as I was this morning – I had a sick son at home, he seems a little better this afternoon, so all is well in my world again!

Two days off now, so hope to relax a bit in the card room.. til tomorrow….
