Hexagon Hive Birthday Wishes

Hexagon Hive Birthday Wishes
This month's Big Shot class was using the Hexagon Hive Thinlit — so much fun.  I think the customers were surprised.  I had my first man at a stamp class — Jose did a great job.  He really showed the ladies how to do it.  I saw a card like this on Stampin' Connection (I think — sorry don't know who designed it) — I changed up the colors and designer papers.  I loved all the different elements on this card and Strawberry Slush (one of the 2013-2015 In Colors) is one of my favorite colors.  We used the Decorative Dots embossing folder from the Sale-a-Bration brochure as the background under the Hexagon Hive piece.  Then we added the "punch outs" from the Hexagon Hive with dimensionals on top of the solid spots.  We also added some flowers that were punched out with the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.  Final touches were adding Candy Dots and Pearls — so pretty.  Jose did a great job with all the little pieces.

See — the guys can stamp too. 

So Very Grateful — Project #3

So Very Grateful Easel Card
This was the third card we made in this month's Stamp of the Month class.  It is an easel card — it folds down flat to mail it and then the recepient can prop up the picture for display.  We use a doily behind the stamped image which I think adds a special touch to this card.  I cased the layout for this card from fellow demonstrator Julie Davison, making a few slight changes to make it my own card.  I hope you enjoyed this stamp set as much as I have.  Watch for cards this week using the Hexagon Hive Thinlit from my Big Shot class.

So Very Grateful Project 2

So Very Grateful Strawberry Slush
This is the second card that we made at my Stamp of the Month Class.  I love doing different fold cards and I believe I cased this fold from Linda Bauman.  It just give the card a different look — the little flap on the left side of the card lifts up to expose the panel of Whisper White cardstock to write you message.  I used the Distressed Dots Embossing Folder from Sale-a-Bration brochure.  The flower image is colored in using markers.  Another card that is quick and easy with a fun look.
