Hey there. I was super excited to be asked to be a guest designer on the AAA Cards Challenge this week. We will be making a no layer card with hexagons. I had so much fun with this that I made three cards.
All my cards are 110lb, white top folding A2 card bases. Using the Honey Bee Stamps nesting hexagon dies I cut a stencil from card stock. Then using Distress Ink I blended two colors in each hexagon overlapping them as I went. I then used a Block Alphabet die set from Papertrey Ink to cut out my "hb" window. This gives you the contrast color (white) while still keeping your card one layer. Then I added the Happy Birthday from a Concord and 9th set in dark purple ink.
This card uses the Happy Hexagon set from Papertrey Ink with just straight up stamping.
My final card uses another stencil that I created with the Echo Park Hexagon Confetti die. I just ink blended a little yellow ink in a small area through the stencil. Then stamped and heat embossed the bee from the Papertrey Ink Honey Bee set in black ink with clear detail powder. Added in a darker yellow for the bee's body.
I hope you will dust off your no layer skills and join us on the AAA Cards Challenge with some hexagon magic.
Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
