Hexagon Hive

Tin Of Cards, Hexagon Hive

Have you ever gotten an idea in your head but you just can’t get it on paper?  This was a result of having that happen.  I had this great idea that involved diagonals, Sea Street and Designer Series paper.  As you can see, the only thing that made it on this card was the diagonals.  I wanted to make a masculine nautical card.  The only thing nautical about this card is the colors.  Let me tell you, a lot of card stock, stamped and unstamped made it to the garbage bin this time.  I was able to save it but I am not too sure how happy I am with the way it turned out.  Such is the life of a card maker!

I hope you have better luck with your ideas then I did with this idea!

Wild About Flowers, Hexagon Hive Thinlits

I know everyone is probably busy making Christmas cards (if you aren’t you better get moving!!) but sometimes I need a break from them.  I love so many of my stamp sets and I think the non-holiday ones feel lonesome during this time of year.  I decided to take out the set called Wild About Flowers and make a thank you card.  The background was made using the Hexagon Hive Thinlits.  It is another one of those products that don’t get a lot of love this time of year.  I love the look of it as a background.
I am sure tomorrow we will be back to our regularly scheduled Christmas program!

Happy Birthday Hexagon Hive

Hexagon Hive, Flower Shop, Tin Of Cards

Today is my friend Sandy’s birthday.  For her birthday I made her this card with the Hexagon Hive Thinlit.  It uses the colors of Watermelon Wonder (a new In Color) and Crushed Curry.  I made another card using these colors and really liked it so I thought I would try it again.  The polka dots in the background were made using a new background stamp called Dots For Days.  I love using background stamps to add a little extra and Stampin’ Up has a bunch of new ones.  The sentiment on this card is from the stamp set called Tin of Cards.  You probably already know that since I use it a lot.  It just seems to be the perfect size for a lot of cards.

Happy Birthday, Sandy!  I hope you have an awesome day!
