How about some fun Papertrey Ink shares today?
Let's first start with what I'm calling "My Hexagon Cover Plate Period". "Happy Hexagons" is to-die-for in every way possible. I used the cover plate and stamp set here to create three horizontal lines across the card in the same color, but changed the pattern to create a larger hexagon focal point.
I realized that you could layer two cuts of Hexagon Cover Plates on top of each other and create new patterns. So this card is what happens when you slide one cut directly horizontal over another cut. Sort of a Greek key look. Also uses a fabulous sentiment from "We Go Together". Flower Fusion #7 helped me out here too.
And for a third look, slide the top cut 45 degrees to the right over the bottom cut. You get this star pattern. Kinda neat, huh? I used "Framed Out #5", "Larger Than Life", and "Happy Hydrangeas" stamps and the new Limitless Layers 2.25" Square dies to create a window to showcase that fabulous cover plate pattern.
Who else is completely thrilled with the new Bitty Baby Blessings dies? I've been waiting for these! Love the original stamp set. I hung an onesie from a banner created with the new "Heart-2-Heart #5".
My brother is a naval aviator. He goes on shorter deployments, but it will be just a matter of time before he's gone for longer periods of time. I'll tuck this away until I need it. I'm glad I have "Military Stars" and "Military Heroes" to turn to when I need to make him a card.
"Lovely Layers". This is my favorite of this month's release. You can do so much with it without a lot of effort. Did anybody else think pairing it up with "Modern Basics' might be a good idea. Same shapes. So I had to go with that on this card.
And lastly, "BB: Rainbow". Use it like you would a scalloped die cut border. A nice subtle framing background on this card. Very vintage.
Thanks for joining me this month. :) I'll see you around soon.... next time with a baby announcement. Not much longer now! :)
