Six Sided Cards

The title of this posting may be rather mis-leading, as the card itself is not six-sided, but it is the name of the Stamp Set I have used. Sorry if you thought you were going to see an amazing six sided card.

There is a fantastic new stamp set out in the new catalogue which features some very easy to use stamps, that work on a hexagon design. Hexagon shapes are so 'in' this year, we have been seeing them everywhere.

Here are the finished cards, they are for my customers who placed orders with me last week, and I enclose one with each order by way of a thank you. 
 What makes these cards SO easy to make, is that there is a co-ordinating hexagonal punch that will punch out the different stamped images, including the 3 sentiments.

Here is the stamp set in full... when you buy the set with the punch, you can get them both at a discount by buying the complete bundle, saving you 15% off the individual price. There are 11 stamps in the set, which you can mix and match as you like.

The complete bundle price in Clear Mount is £29.25, the punch on its own is £15.50.  I have used some Designer Series paper (Epic Day This and That) for the background of the card - and I chose the matching ink colours - all that information is provided in the catalogue so if you are not good at choosing colours, the information is all there for you.

Finally a close up of two of the cards. By using Dimensionals to lift the punched out hexagons, it gives a more detailed look to the finished card. Some white baker's twine or linen thread finishes the card off. I hope you like these quick and easy projects - let me know if you wish to order anything or you would like any more details on the above products/projects. I would be delighted to answer any queries you may have.

Watch out tomorrow as I am taking part in my FIRST EVER Blog Hop - I have joined up with other team members to showcase a range of products from the new Annual Catalogue - it's easy to join in... view my website tomorrow and there will be links there to take you forward and backward between each blog - as easy as that. Look out for this sign:

See you then :)
