I'll admit it... I had not had time to play with the Hexagon Hive frameilt Big Shot die yet. This is a new product in the 2014 Stampin' Up! Occasions "Celebrate the Everyday" catalog.  So, you can imagine how excited I was when Cindee pulled out this project for us to make when we were stamping together last week!!  Lisa made one too!


You Make Me Happy from the Happy Watercolor stamp set was stamped on a die cut banner in Island Indigo.  The base card (4-1/4" x 11" folded in 1/2) is also Island Indigo.

page 26, Occasions Catalog


As you can see from this product photo, the framelit cuts out hexagon shapes randomly and leaves some of the paper in the design.

Cindee's card uses this framelit in such a unique way.. the Whisper White Hexagon Hive die cut is placed OVER a piece of Watercolor Wonder Designer paper, so that the color and pattern show through!


We decorated the card front with punched out flowers from the new Petite Petal punch (pg 33 in the Occasions catalog).

















I think you'll agree with me.. the flowers look really great when you sponge the edges just a bit.. I love that special touch, along with the Pearls in the centers!!!

 For info about punching the flowers out of the Watercolor Wonder Paper, see my previous blog post here.

I have to say, I love the flowers using the DSP without the ink edges, but totally agree, inking the edges a bit makes them pop even more.

I was also thinking, you might have to you a "jig" for this, but what if you took one of the Petite Flower stamps that just as an outline and used say smoky slate/basic gray (a light color) and stamped on punch so there are even more subtle lines in the shape of a flower. Something to think about! :)


Temptation, temptation, temptation!!!


Temptation, temptation, temptation!!!


Do the hexagon from the die cut match the hexagon embossing folder?


This is sooo very pretty! Thanks for sharing!!! :)
