Fiskars Hexagon Punch

Good morning!! It’s lovely and rainy here and I am happily enjoying some Christmas music while my son and I play. He loves pretending to be Santa Claus and fills up all of our stockings for us with lots of little trains and puppy toys. 🙂

I have a couple fun cards for you today made with a new (to me) Fiskars hexagon punch I have. I put these cards together using a couple of older Studio Calico Card Kits and a frame die from Papertrey Ink.

For the first card I stuck with the greens and yellow color tones and punched the hexagons out of multiple different pattern papers and cardstock.

For the second card I stamped the sentiment onto all of the gray hexagons for a fun tiled look. 🙂

Beautiful Brushstrokes

Hi everyone! Today I have a card for you that I made with the Papertrey Ink Beautiful Brushstrokes Make It Market Kit.

I used a horizontal cover plate die to make the background and literally everything else on the card is from the kit. The idea was that these stamps give a watercolored feel but I have seen a lot of people putting watercolor paint directly on their stamps as well – so cool! These kits aren’t for sale any more but they currently have a couple others… check them out here.

Have a wonderful week!!

Oh, Hi

Hi again! Today I have a quick little card that I put together using the Studio Calico Lemonlush printables. I thought the colors in the Lemonlush set were so much fun I had to get those printable shapes.

The stripes are die cut from a teal blue cardstock and the butterfly is die cut from vellum. Both dies are from Papertrey Ink. I tried to keep the entire card feeling very light.

Sandlot Card Kit

Well hey there! Today I have a couple more cards from the Studio Calico June Card Kit Sandlot (a bit belated, I know!!). For the first one I used the inside pieces of a butterfly (that typically fall out when die cutting) to accent a solid white die cut butterfly. I layered it on top of pattern paper and a piece of blue cardstock stamped in Hero Arts black with the sentiment. I put the whole thing on a trimmed piece of kraft cardstock and then atop a white card base.

For the second card I chose to die cut two solid butterflies in different sizes (one in white cardstock and one in vellum) and layer them within a piece of pattern paper. The pattern paper has a butterfly cutout and is attached to a white card base.

Thanks for stopping by!! 🙂

Love You

Hey there friends! Forgive my crazy absence, I’m desperately trying to improve my photography and it’s taken on a life of it’s own!! I’m getting there slowly but I still have a ton of practicing to do. 🙂

I made this card a couple months ago (has it been that long?!) and I’ve been waiting to photograph it until I had at least a little progression in the photography department… haha. I have a bunch more cards coming too. I made this with the Studio Calico Sandlot Card Kit (which is still available as of this posting!). I used some Papertrey Ink dies and stamps as well (which I love… shocker!!).

I’ll be back soon with hopefully better images and some new cards to share. 🙂 Have a great week!!

Stephanie 🙂
