Jumping on the Hexagon Trend!

There are cards all over blogland right now using hexagons - and I love them!  They look like a comfie quilt - yet most of what I am seeing is still very clean and simple.  Of course, I jumped right on that bandwagon and my hexagon dies arrived yesterday...


Get Well Quilt

I went with this week's very cheerful colors from colourq.  Then, I needed a little help with the idea of a clean and simple quilt - so I went with this week's sketch from clean&simple.


  • Stamps: Stampin' Up Perfectly Penned
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Always Artichoke and Tangerine CS, Daffodil and Pear dsp
  • Ink: Versamark
  • Accessories: detail white embossing powder, Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Hexagon dies, Stampin' Up dotted embossing folder, misc twine

Really pretty, Kim. I couldn't really get into the color combo, but you've made them fit together famously!

What a fabulous take on that sketch! I've got some hexagon stamps that I haven't inked up yet and now I'm feeling guilty! A hexagon die sounds like the perfect accessory!!

Very cool card! Now I think I "need" some hexagon dies, as well.Enabler alert! Haha! I really like how you added the little pops of Tangerine Tango, too. :)

The hexagons make a clean crisp card! I love the big one and how one of the embossed ones hang off the design area! Great card, Kim!
