Hey crafty friends, hope you are having a fabulous weekend. I thought I would pop in with another new card, Simon Says Stamp Hexagon Background. The Hexagon Background stamp is another new release for STAMPTEMBER. It’s a huge 6 x 6 rubber stamp with foam backing.
Just a heads up – Today is the last day for many of the Crafty Sales going on this weekend – and a couple of new ones have been added Check out my CRAFTY SALES PAGE HERE.
Also, the new collaboration Stamp Set for Today at Simon Says Stamp is: Art Impressions Hug in a Mug
On to today’s Simon Says Stamp Hexagon Background card:
I love these backgrounds stamps. They are rubber, (like in the good old days), they stamp beautifully. At 6 x 6″ they are HUGE, so you can use them for a background or an art element. There are also many different techniques you can use with them.
For today’s card I decided to white heat emboss the image onto a piece of watercolor paper and create my card front with it.
I went for a bright and cheery background using Gansai Tambi watercolors in yellow, green and pink.
Once dry, cut it down to 4 x 5-1/4 and attach it to a top folding white, A2 sized card base.
I decided on a white floral overlay. The Poppy Stem and Cosmo Stem dies from Simon Says Stamp have enough detail etched into them to stand on their own.
Adding the Sentiment:
Next, I cut the Wishing You Joy sentiment in Simon Says Stamp Green Apple card stock.
Cut the shadow background in vellum to allow more of the colored background to be seen.
Finally, I added a few florescent green sequins from the Rainbow Party Sequin Mix.
