Birthday Bouquet & The Hexagon Hive Die

Birthday Bouquet Header

Today’s post is dedicated to all of you who have bought the Hexagon Hive Thinlit and asked me how to use it beyond stamping. This card we made at my class and everyone was happy to see a new way to use this thinlit. It’s a simple technique and the results are stunning. See if you don’t agree?

Birthday Bouquet Card

CARD STOCK & CUTTING DIMENSIONS:

  1. The card base of Mint Macaron was cut at 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″
  2. Whisper White- 5-1/4″ x 4″
  3. Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper- 5-1/4″ x 4″
  4. Blushing Bride- 8-1/2″ x 2-3/4″ (for stamping)

 

STAMPING:

  1. On the piece of Blushing Bride, stamp four flowers from the  Petite Petals stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink. Leave room for the “Happy Birthday” message.
  2. On the other end of the Blushing Bride, stamp the “Happy Birthday” message from the Rose Wonder stamp set in Mossy Meadow.
  3. Using Mossy Meadow Ink again, stamp the label outline from the Rose Wonder stamp set over the “Happy Birthday” message. Make sure the message is in the middle of the label. Since this is a photopolymer stamp set the lining up is a cinch.

PUNCHES & DIES, Oh, My:

  1. With the Petite Petals Punch, punch out the four stamped petite flowers. Scrunch them up a bit.
  2. Using the BIG Shot and the label die from the Rose Garden Thinlit set, cut out the “Happy Birthday”  label.
  3. Run the piece of Whisper White card stock through the BIG Shot with the Hexagon Hive Thinlit.

 

PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER:

  1. Adhere the Hexagon Hive cut out over the piece of the Birthday Bouquet DSP.  Guess what I used to adhere these together?? Yep, Multi-Purpose Glue!
  2. Attach these two layers to the card base.
  3. Attach the “Happy Birthday” label with Dimensionals in a place that’s pleasing to you.
  4. With dabs of glue or Glue Dots attach the Blushing Bride flowers.
  5. Add some bling using Rhinestones or Pearls.

3D Style Button "Tips"

My tip to you is to try and leave some of the solid honeycombs showing to break up the busy areas. The white gives your eyes a break from the busy background pattern and can actually pop the background more, because of the break there’s a greater contrast.

 

Try this technique using different Designer Series Papers, stamped backgrounds and holiday images.

 

Remember to make what you love and love what you make.

 

Craft on!

 

Embrace the day,

Petite Petals Rainbow Birthday Card

Petite Flowers HeaderWelcome back stampers!

Breast Cancer Ribbon Button

Today’s share is a FUN card indeed. I call it the Petite Petals Rainbow Card  , because it’s just that! The flowers are from the Stampin’ Up! Petite Petals Stamp Set and how nice is it that there’s a matching punch? Now this card can be made using any single image you want to use. Just stamp the image in different colors for the rainbow effect.

This is a pretty straight-forward card to make.

 

1. Cut a  piece of Whisper White, at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ and cut the top layer at 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″

 

2. For the middle layer cut a 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Strawberry Slush. The Strawberry Slush makes all of the colors on the card really pop, without it being too matchie!

 

3. Stamp a flower or other image in the colors you want on to a scrap of Whisper White . For this card I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Starfruit (R), Gumball Green (R), Marina Mist and Wisteria Wonder. I also stamped a few flowers in Strawberry Slush to wrap around the greeting banner.

 

4. Once the flowers were stamped I used the Petite Petals punch for a perfect cutout of the flowers.

 

5. For the small banners below the flowers, I used coordinating card stock to the ink colors and with the Banner Punch I punched out one banner for each flower.

6. The large banners were cut using the BIG Shot and Banner Framelit Dies. I cut the large banner out of Strawberry Slush and the smaller banner from Whisper White card stock.

 

7. On the Whisper White I stamped the, “Happy Birthday”  greeting in Strawberry Slush Ink.

 

8. I layered the banners as the detail shows and surrounded the banner with the Strawberry Slush flowers.

 

9. Next, I tied a neat little bow made out of Bakers Twine and tucked it in between the flowers.

10.  I adhered each flower to it’s matching card stock banner, then placed them evenly across the bottom of the card.

 

 

11. To finish off this Rainbow card, I placed a matching Candy Dot in the center of each flower.

 

And, speaking of rainbows and cotton candy skies…
