Stretch your stamps

Hello again,

Two posts in one day!  I am watching the Olympic torch relay today and am quite nervous, as one of my friends son's is running with the torch.  So whilst the torch is making its way to Oxford I thought I'd post the first card inspired by Jennifer and Kristina over at the On-line card classes class called "Stretch your Stamps".

As I had the colours and the background stamp out from the card posted earlier I decided to use them again for this card.........

One of the cards in class today was piecing together hexagons which had been stamped onto two different colours which had both been stamped with the same background stamp and pieced together.

I took the inspiration for this card from that lesson and have cut out this design using my Silhouette Cameo.  I cut the design out twice and filled the negative space of the kraft one I cut out, with the little hexagons in each of the colours.  The white ones (stamped in Crumb Cake) and the Kraft ones stamped and embossed with white embossing powder.

I now have all the pieces to make a card in the opposite colour combination too.

Thanks for stopping by again.



  1. That is clever

  2. Love your monochromatic design.

  3. Love you card, white on kraft is such an attractive combination.

  4. I love this card! the kraft and white is perfect for this design!

  5. I really like how you combined two different background on this card. The pairing of them with the hexagon really pulls them together.
