Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great and restful weekend. I'm back once again to share another card I made using the wonderful July Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp.
Here's my card:
Today's card took a bit of work but was fun to make. :) I was inspired by the card Laura Bassen made for Simon Says Stamp Summer School. If you watch her video you'll see that she took the Simon Says Stamp hexagon background die and cut it out using an adhesive sheet which she then placed on her cardstock as a mask. She then made another mask using a sticky note to use so she could work on individual hexagons. I used that same technique here but instead of inking in each individual hexagon I used the small 'firework' stamp and a few different inks to creat my patterned background.
One word of advice if you try this... double up on the sticky notes or change them somewhat frequently. I used a single one and found that after stamping a number of times the ink started to bleed through it and got on areas where I didn't want it. Boo! My answer to that issue lately has been to pull out the color mist spray. ;)
Here's what I used for today's card:
As always sweet Heidi, owner of Simon Says Stamp has provided a card kit from this month for me to give away on my blog! Thanks, Heidi! Just leave a comment on any or all of my 4 card kit posts (this is the final one) and I'll announce a winner this Wednesday, June 26th.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
