Six Sided Sampler #4

This is the last of my six sided sampler cards. I used an idea from a US Demo Mary Fish to make the hexagon punch shape into a pocket, I am not sure how successful I was as a few people thought they were a set of men's undies (with frills - no comment!). I used some of the stretched ruffle ribbon - I love it - it is so stretchy.
The DSP is from Eastern Elegance and the sentiment is from Sassy Salutations.

Six Sided Sampler #3

Another card using the Six Sided Sampler stamp set and this years new in colours. I used crisp cantaloupe and pistachio pudding on a crumb cake card blank. This is a quick sweet little card and I think it would make a great new baby card with a different sentiment and colours.
I will share another six sided sampler card with you tomorrow.

Six Sided Sampler #2

Here is the second card I made using the six sided sampler stamp set and 13-15 in colours. I just stamped and punched out lots of hexagons then had fun sticking then on a piece of crisp cantaloupe card, *top tip it is a lot easier to stick the hexagons on and trim the edges before you stick it on your card blank, (isn't it Sue!).
I stamped the sentiment on a strip of whisper white card then punched it out using the hexagon punch.

Six Sided Sampler Thank You - Catalogue Case

Stampin' Up catalogues are great for giving us ideas on how to use the products. My thank you card is a case of the card on page 125 of the 13-14 annual catalogue. It is a quick and easy card to make using a stamp-a-ma jig to line the hexagons up.
My colour scheme is strawberry slush, crisp cantaloupe and coastal cabana. The six sided sampler is a great stamp set and it has a matching hexagon punch - if you buy them both together you get 15% off.

Secret Garden Oval Easel Card

One of my neighbour's, Jackie, shares the same birthday as me and this is the card I made her. I know Jackie loves flowers so what better stamp set than Secret Garden? I used some of the new in colours, coastal cabana, crisp cantaloupe, pistachio pudding and strawberry Slush.

 I used the memorable moments stamp set to make  the sentiment.
 I made the card into an oval easel card using the oval framelits. I enjoyed making this card and I think the colours make it look very fresh and summery.

Flower Shop

Hi All, I just got back from Butlins, a traditional British holiday, now I need another holiday to recover! I don't think I showed you the 'workshop challenge' card I made at Julie's training.  Julie gave us all a challenge to make a workshop make and take card using the flower shop stamp set, (this is definitely on my wish list, a girl can never have too many flower stamp sets).
I made a one sheet wonder, stamping a sheet of whisper white with flowers then cutting it into pieces. I made mine into a gift card holder, you probably can't tell by the picture but the triangle inside the card is actually a pocket, cut the triangle off the front of the card and stick it inside. The colour scheme is crisp cantalope, pistachio pudding and burnt brown sugar.

 For the blinged up version I added some glimmer card and rhinestones.
Here are both cards together:
