Hi Everyone! It's been a while since I shared a card (or even created a card for that matter). I've been creating mainly cards with colored images this year so I decided to create one with just stamping instead.
I recently discovered Studio Calico stamps which I use mainly for scrapbooking, but I wanted to create this card using some of the stamps as well. I used the little hexagon image from the Summer Stamp school (an online class they did). Honestly, the stamp set was really all I got out of the class. I hate saying that, but it was really a waste of money except for the stamp set and I will think twice before taking another one of their class. (Geez, I feel mean typing that, but I just don't want my readers to think I loved the class and sign up based on that when I really didn't.)
Anyway, back to the card. I stamped the hexagon images using different colored inks from CTMH and cut them out. Then, I arranged them to create the background, trimmed the edge, and added a white border. The brown patterned paper is from an Echo Park This & That Graceful paper pad. The sentiment is from the Studio Calico Heyday Sentiments stamp set. The twine is Caribbean from The Twinery. (I plan to do a preorder of twine from The Twinery some time this month.)
Have a great week!
