How To Create These Clean And Simple Hexagon Cards

April 21, 2019

Hello everyone, it’s Sanna Lippert here today again, sharing my April guest design team project with you. I love basic dies for their versatility, and wanted to show how to create these fun and colorful –– but clean and simple –– cards with just a few easy-to-follow steps.

Here is what I did:
Step 1: Die cut 12 hexagon pieces –– three of each of the 4 smallest sizes from the Fitted Hexagons die set, from white Soft Finish Cardstock with your die cutting machine.
Step 2: Fold a card base from white Soft Finish Cardstock approximately 14,5 x 10,5 cm in size and arrange the die cut hexagon pieces onto the card base.
Step 3: Now place the die cut hexagons onto a craft mat in the exact same order and take three tones of Distress Ink to color them with an ink blending tool. Blend the colors together to create a gradient color pattern.
Step 4: Adhere the inked hexagons in place with Kids Choice glue or Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Cut off any residues with scissors.

Step 5: Add water splatters onto the inked areas and let sit a bit, then dab with a piece of cloth.
Step 6: Die cut a Fishtail Banner from white Soft Finish Cardstock and stamp a sentiment from General Sentiments clear stamp set with black stamp ink onto the banner.
Step 7: Adhere the smallest hexagons and the banner with 3D foam pads onto the card base and add a few silver sequins for decoration. The tweezers are great for this purpose!

I’ve also recorded a video for you to watch, to give you a better idea of each particular step. Hope you like it!

Also while I was at it, I created an additional card, with yellow, orange and pink Distress Ink tones and the Stitched Hexagons die set. What a big difference it makes by only changing a color scheme!

That’s all from me today! I hope I could inspire you a bit with my April post. I’ll be back in June with another guest post. See you then!

Wishing you a great, crafty day!!

Camping Out Colorado Canoe Card

August 4, 2017
Camping Out Colorado Canoe Card

Summer is a big time for outdoor activities here in Colorado, so I could not resist using the new Camping Out stamp set to create a Colorado-esque canoeing scene. Colorado is also a state filled with dog lovers (I am one of them), so I could not resist the adorable dog wagging ‘hello’ from the lake.

Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

Pop It Ups Wednesday With Raquel – Whiskers Gift Card

January 25, 2017

Hello my crafty friends! It’s Raquel Mason here today to share a gift card holder featuring Whiskers the Cat.  Now that Christmas is over, there’s no need to put the Sleigh Gift Card Holder die set away. As you will see with this card, it’s put to good use year round.  Instead of using the sleigh that comes with the set, I have used Whiskers the Cat instead.  Let’s jump right in and get started with the tutorial!

Circle Butterfly Card
By Els van de Burgt

finishedproject

This card is all about playing with circles! I combined Fitted Frames, Stitched Circles and Fitted Circles for the layers and mixed in Through the Lens Wood and Metal Series patterned cardstock. The finished card is flat and measure 5.25”. To display it, I die cut an Easel/Card Stand from 100lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, covered with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the front so I could glitter it to match the sparkle of the butterfly.
