hexagons gone punchy

Hi guys, Lisa, your local Stampin Up Uk Independent Demonstrator here.

In today's post


  • Six sided sampler meets the colour coach
  • weekly deals


SIX SIDED SAMPLER MEETS THE COLOUR COACH - CARD 1

So on Monday I talked about the colour coach and how much it has helped me when I've been stuck.  I was challenged on Monday to just open it and then go with whatever colours appeared.

I opened it at Always Artichoke. - Green ........ hmm not a colour I work with a lot.  So turning it over it showed Cajun Craze, So Saffron and Always Artichoke paired together.

OK.

I also challenged myself to use the Six sided sampler set ....... I don't own this now, but I will soon.  I really didn't like it.  Too geometric, out of my comfort zone.  What would I use that for.

How wrong was I.  I love it.  Love the way you can create amazing backgrounds with it.  Gorgeous.

Anyway here's today's card - its the last of the three I created and I am really pleased with this one.




I have used the co-ordinating punch to punch out random areas of the stamped cardstock to create apertures in the pattern.  I have also stamped below these panels.  This time I have again punched out the sentiment and added some white bakers twine and a jewel.  



I have used  my Stampa-ma-jig when making all of these cards and I have really loved it.  Watch this space I have a feeling there may be more six sided sampler cards to come.
