A Graphic Hexagonish card

Hi everyone! I trust everyone is looking forward to the weekend--I know I am! It's the first weekend in a while that I'll be able to do nothing but craft! :) And since I'm taking the Stretch Your Stamps online card class, I'm being bombarded with ideas that I want to put on cards!

I wanted to play along with the Moxie Fab Challenge of using hexagons on cards. When I first started scrapbooking, I bought a hexagon punch from Creative Memories and I haven't used it in AGES! But when I saw the challenge, I knew it was time to, literally, dust it off! Also, the online class gave a lot of ideas on how to use graphic stamps. I wanted to try using a graphic stamp and kissing it with another before stamping it on the card.

Here's my card...
I started out by inking the Teresa Collins Fabrications stamp in royal blue ink. Then, before stamping it on the paper, I kissed it with the Hero Arts Old Letter Writing stamp and then stamped it on the card. If you look really closely, you can see some of the writing on that cool graphic. Also, I stamped that same Old Letter Writing on blue panel where the hexagons would go. Then, I punched out the hexagons from that graphic using a 1 1/4 inch punch. I then took the 1 1/2 inch hexagon punch and cut those out in yellow and added some faux stitching around the edges. I added the ribbon, gems, butterflies and the sentiment (also from Hero Arts) and I was done. The photo doesn't do it justice--but the graphic looks so cool with that added script writing!

Hope you guys can join in with the Moxie Fab challenge!

Thanks for the comments and have a wonderful weekend--that's hopefully filled with crafting, too!


  1. What a fabulous blend of textures, color and shape. Great card.

  2. Very pretty. A clever use of your hexagon punch with stamping.

  3. The details on the hexagons is amazing.
