Six Sided Sampler Card

I was looking for a fun card using the "Six Sided Sampler" set and I found one at Becky's "Scrappin' and Stampin'" blog.  I thought it looked like a fun card to make.  The only think I didn't like was making sure the stamp was dry before I moved on to the next color.  Now this would be a great card to make several of.  That way they stamp would be dry because you would stamp one color and punch it out and then move on to the next and by the time you needed that image again it would be dry.  But I didn't make more than one card so I had to take extra care in making sure the image was dry.

With that said I will move on to how this fun card was made.  The base of the card is a half sheet of Whisper White cardstock with a 1/4 trimmed sheet on top.  The hexagons were stamped in the following colors, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Basic Black and Elegant Eggplant.  Once they were stamped I punched them out and added Dimensionals behind each one.  I tried to follow how they were placed by looking at the original card.  I stamped the words and used the "Bitty Banners" die to cut it out.  Then I also cut out two of those pieces in Basic Black and lined them up behind the word piece, one above and one below.  I thought it gave the layer some nice depth.

Next I taped the 1/4 trimmed piece to the card base.  And when went to set the word piece in place I saw that I had the card upside down.  GRRRR.  But it did turn out okay anyway so I'm not going to whine about it too much.  It's been a long time since I've made an upside down card!!!  And I wasn't even drinking!! LOL

This was a very fun card to make and I can see myself making more of this card!  It's so bright and cheery and can be used for several occasions.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Wanda, Love this card. I'm going to have to try this. Thanks for the link. Love your idea on doing multiples and stamping several so the ink will dry.
