Fresh Prints with Hexagon Punch and Six-Sided Sampler

Hello Everyone,

Sale-a-Bration and the Spring/Summer Catalogue are well under way, so I thought I would show you a couple of cards today - one of which uses the Fresh Prints paper stack from the Spring/Summer Catalogue. I know a few people have ordered these paper stacks from me and might like an idea for using them.

For this card I have simply punched out hexagon shapes from the paper stack and used the 'snail' tape runner to stick them onto a piece of white card.  I found it easier to stick the shapes to a larger piece of white card stock and then trim to the desired size. I raised one of the hexagons on foam pads and added a greeting to finish my card.

I love the colour scheme of these papers which is Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, Real Red and Whisper White, and I think some people find the smaller size of the papers easier to use when card making.

And for my second card .....

I used the same colour scheme and stamped the shapes onto white card, again slightly larger than I needed and then trimmed the piece to fit my card front. I stamped one image onto spare card and punched this out fixing it to the card with foam pads, adding a flower and a gem. 

I hope you like these cards and thank you for following my blog even though the posts are a bit erratic these days!

  1. Hi Julia love the cards. I've had the papers out a couple of times and not managed to summon up any inspiration. Will be having a go later today. Thanks
