My Sweet As Honey Hubby called me from Starbucks today…not to ask if I wanted a coffee brought home, but to tell me he was going to spend the day in meetings and I should craft to my hearts content…I giggled and told him I’d try and fit that in between loads of laundry! Then I took a sip of the mocha that I had gone and picked up myself and came to the realization that I had just been given a free pass to the craft room. No Miss B looking over my shoulder, no hubby to distract me (yes after almost 7 years together he still distracts me). I’m not sure if I stopped before pulling out from the espresso stand.
I am participating in an upcoming blog hop with the You’re the Bomb Stamp set (you can order it here) cute as ever and $3.00 from every sale goes to Operation Smile, it’s a MUST HAVE for your stamp collection!
Anyway…I got those cards out of the way and decided to pop over to the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge – it is probably one of my favorite challenge sites – the sketches are AMAZING and the design team is too! Sketch #91 was posted and I looked at it and knew exactly what I wanted to do
I knew I wanted to use the Honeycomb shape instead of circles so I stamped them in Sorbet, Flaxen, Glacier and Chocolate and then punched them out. I then laid them out on my Versamat to see what size base card stock I needed. The Versamat is one of my favorite tools from Close to My Heart – the grid helps me line things up perfectly, flip it over an the foam side is perfect for stamping on!
I repeated the hexagon shapes in flaxen, sorbet & glacier to bring in a little punch to the inside bottom corner of the card.
Here’s a quick list of the items I used which you can purchase here or from your CTMH consultant:
- Inks: Sorbet, Flaxen, Glacier, Chocolate, Black
- My Acrylix Stamps: C1537 Honeycomb, B1471(Exclusive Hostess Set) Variety of Thanks
