Unabashadly Stamp Lifted – Color Dare #212

Happy Friday…it’s time for a new Color Dare and if purples are your thing this is your week!  Color Dare #212 challenges you to use White Daisy, Black, Eggplant, Thistle and Pansy…sounds like a fun challenge to me!

I was spending  wasting some time on Pinterest when I ran across this card which I fell in love with for several reasons #1 it uses hexagons, #2 it has a simple sentiment #3 I could easily duplicate it.

My hexagons are stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento and Pansy.  When stamping with solid stamps it’s best to have your Versamat turned to the spongy side so you get good coverage.  The sentiment was stamped with Eggplant – it’s such a nice deep purple and that sentiment love the combined script & print!!  The flower is stamped in Thistle – it’s probably my favorite of all our purples.  I wanted to keep the look clean and simple so I just added touches of purple accent (a glitter gem in the center of the flower and a glitter heart at the end of the sentiment.

Now hop on over to the Color My Heart Color Dare Blog where you will find some other wonderful cards from the Design Team.  I love that we all have such different ideas.  Won’t you take some time and play along?  It’s super easy to link up your creation – all the instructions are right there on the sidebar of the blog.

Thanks for stopping by…see you next week.

 

 

 

Crazy About Hexagons – AHSC #101

I love the difference a little craft time makes!

The Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge has another awesome sketch challenge this week.  I’m not sure how Michelle keeps coming up with them, but the inspiration is delightful.

 

 

 

I didn’t really want to work with flowers and had seen a cute card on Pinterest that I thought would work for this sketch.  Since we also have a huge amount of Mason Bees buzzing around the farm I reached for my Hexagons stamp set and Buzz and Bumble accessories.  I spent 20 minutes looking for my Buzz and Bumble paper, but wasn’t able to find it.  Hmmm, Kraft paper and Chocolate Ink to the rescue!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I kept the inside simple only lining the bottom with Scallop Punched Gold Shimmer Trim.  Here’s a hint, leave the lining on while you punch!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog I hope you’ll hop over the the AHSC to see what the amazing design team has been up to and if they recovered from their 100th Sketch last week.
