Honey Bee Stamps Cheerful Card Set - Using Hexagon Scraps


Hello friends!

Like every other papercrafter out there,  I always have an abundant supply of scrap paper. I like to keep my good scrap pieces, but sometimes it gets to a point where it becomes too much. So for today's project I thought I would pull out some of my scraps and get busy on creating a Cheerful Card Set. 

Well, mission accomplished.... kinda, but not really... still have tons of scraps and could probably make another 50 of these sets! 😆

To create this set was actually quite simple. Here is how i did it:

  • Picked out my scrap pieces using rainbow colors and white.
  • Used the Hexagon Bunches Die and created my hexagons from each color.
  • Glued each hexagon in rainbow order to an A2 sized piece of cardstock. Making sure to glue them as straight and close together as possible.
  • Cut the created background piece of cardstock into equal hexagon strips. See iPhone image below.

  • Got Creative. I used the strips as focal points on each card. I ran each of the strips through the sizzix to align with the large Double Stitched frame die panel, cutting them in a few different lengths and angles.
  • Next, I layed out all my Honey Bee Sentiment and stamp sets in front of me and then planned out which images and stamps I wanted to use on each panel.
  • Stamped out and colored the images in. I used Spectrum Noir Markers for quick coloring, but you can use whatever you like.
  • Glued down the colorful hexagon strips in place, and attached the sentiment strip and dies in place.
  • Adhered the panels to the card bases.
  • Finished the cards by adding embellishments. I added some sparkle pen to the images as well as glossy accents.

Here are some close ups of each card.
