You've Been Framed: Hexagon Mini Stamp SetPapertrey Ink - You've Been Framed: Hexagon Die

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Design Team You've Been Framed Hexagon Rosie Posie

This set is so much fun to work with. The way the die cuts a thin outline allows for so many opportunities to mix and match pieces and create different designs. I also adore how the shape of the hexagon can be transformed into a really masculine design very easily or a very feminine design as well.

My first card is created by repeatedly stamping flowers on my card base and then layering the thin Hexagon frame on top. I kept the colors light and neutral for an airy feel.

My second card used Polka Dot Basics on Aqua Mist cardstock to create a pattern paper effect for the top of the Hexagon. I stamped the inside of the Hexagon in Soft Stone for a subtle texture and accented the entire card with a bit of grey paint splatters.

Hey friends! I’m back to Maggie Holmes Open Book Collection (shocker!!) and I’m going gold and polka dots today. I made a so sweet handmade card with the sentiment sticker from the collection. This gorgeous gold wreath has long been staring at me in it’s package but I wasn’t sure exactly how I wanted to use it. I needed a relatively flat card recently and I thought this was the perfect embellishment to give depth, character, and beauty to a flat card. This card is made entirely out of Open Book products… man I adore this collection!

Hey friends! Taking a little break from the December Daily posts today. I have been putting together card sets quite often recently and it has been a lot of fun making multiple cards that are all different but very similar. Today I used Papertrey Ink’s wet paint stamp set, polka dots stamp set, Hero Arts black ink (my favorite), and some floral ephemera from Maggie Holmes Open Book Collection. These PTI/MH combos are endless!! Love them sooooooo much!

I made four cards total and tried to place in some glitter or foil in each of them. A subtle detail that is much easier to see in person is the cursive “happy” I stamped behind the polka dots. I believe this stamp is from PTI’s Embellished Elegance stamp set. It’s stamped in soft stone & the polka dots are stamped in Versamark Smokey Grey.

Hello everyone! The card I have for you today was inspired (and created with) a Project Life wood veneer card. This adorable chevron wood veneer piece came in one of Studio Calico’s kits and I instantly fell in love. I used white Mr. Huey’s to wash out the color a bit, but it warped when it got wet so I put it underneath a few super heavy books overnight to even it back out.

I used Papertrey Ink’s Delicate Details & Embellished Elegance dies to create the leaves and the sentiment piece in the center. The idea for this card was to really keep it light and white.

Hey friends! Today I have a card I made with an older Studio Calico card kit.

I punched the 4 hearts out of pattern paper from the kit with a Fiskarโ€™s punch. The polka dots and the sentiment stamps came with the kit as well and I used a rock nโ€™ roll motion on different green inks to blend them together a bit. The buttons on top are from the kit as well and are adhered with Tombow Mono liquid glue (love that stuff!).

I LOVE how the colors in this kit coordinated so well together. Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
