CAS hexagon shaped paper punches

Well, {stretching fingers} I've been doing some online shopping & I have a new toy - a Stampin' Up hexagon paper punch (feeling giddy). So, after punching out shapes from a paper pack from Basic Grey, I made some simple cards. I used JustRight stamps for sentiments and borders, and a Hero Arts bumble bee stamp with a dab of Glossy Accents on his wings, then some adhesive pop dots behind the hex shapes for dimension. I placed a few sparkles behind the bee for his sparkle trail.

The last honeycomb type card has a double stitched tan ribbon (Gina K Designs), lavender pearls, a pierced label and Swiss Dot embossed panel (sorry I got the date stamp on that one). Thank you Beate Johns - I watched your video on SCS for the piercing around an oval or other shape technique you shared!

There is a simple sweet bee stamped and colored on the insides and backs of the cards.

Hope you try it -- it really is so much fun!







Thank you so much for coming by ♥

  5. Rosy, these are beautiful. I've seen that punch in the SU catalog, and it is on my wish list, fer sure. The papers you chose to use with this punch are stunning & dramatic. Loved your other trims you added to embellish each card too. I will be trying to find that piercing video by Beatte. Thanks for the heads up and sharing your lovely cards. Hugs
