Jems Blog Hop - Retired Products - Six-Sided Sampler & Garden In Bloom Combo

Back to the start of the Blog Hop!

Good morning everyone!

You will have just joined me from Julie Wade's blog. I am sure you have been enjoying all the posts so far, I am still new at Stampin' Up! and at blogging so forgive me if I am doing this wrong and I am hoping some one will let me know if I am doing anything wrong!

So anyways the theme of this month's blog hop is Retired Products, so I have completed some cards using the Six Sided Sampler stamp set.

My first card uses the Six Sided Sampler set and the current Garden in Bloom stamp set. I decided to do a gatefold card, stamped flowers from the garden in bloom stamp set in the colours of Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, and Garden Green.

I then stamped hexagonal patterns and a sentiment from the retired Six Sided Sampler stamp set in the colours of Wisteria Wonder, Chocolate Chip, and Wild Wasabi. These I cut out using the retired Hexagonal Punch and stuck them onto the card using dimensionals. And that was my card.

For my next card I stamped the lines from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set as I like that grungy look but still pretty with the flower patterns. Again I used Wisteria Wonder and Wild Wasabi ink colours and stamped patterned hexagons using the Six Sided Sampler stamp set, cut them out using the hexagon punch and stuc them onto the card. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set.

So that is it from me for now, I hoped you liked my blog but I am open to any improvements or suggestions that you may have!
