Hexagon Epic Day


Two cards for two challenges today.  You can see details of the challenges below.  

My first card has a naturals card base.  I cut a separate panel and ran it through the Hexagon  embossing folder.  I then cut hexagons from the Epic Day Designer Series Paper and laid them over the panel, popping up a couple for added interest.  I stamped the sentiment from Sassy Salutations Calypso Coral onto another piece of card stock.  The larger hexagon was cut from another piece of Epic Day and popped up on Dimensionals.  

I'm pleased with this card but wondered if it had too many layers for Less is More.  Perhaps Chrissie and Jen will let me know if it's not quite less as it should be.  Anyway I decided to have another go and made this second card again using Natural card stock.

I stamped the sentiment first and scored a line  above and below.  I then added some cut hexagons to go above and below and one large one with a smaller one popped up.  The small Hello is from Pretty Petites with the centre punched out using circle punch. 


Things are settling down here, well at least they are this week!  Puppy going to bed good and only been up the once during the night the last couple of days at 4am.  So perhaps we are getting there.  My daughter's dance show is past.  My goodness I was completely awe struck when we went in to see them on Saturday.  They were so good.  Holly was only on the once for a Hip Hop Dance but watching the seniors was awesome. 

Hope you have had an enjoyable weekend too.  I look forward to catching up this week and paying you a visit.  x

Sounds like a really busy week - hampered by a new puppy??!! Yet you still managed to do beautiful work with hexagons - the little "maps" on all that white are great!

These are fun creations, Aileen! I like the second one better for some reason. I'm glad to hear things are going well with the little pupster!!
