I chose to highlight a brand new stamp set, called Honeycomb. I have been wanting to play around with this one for a while, and I finally had the chance. I chose to add Colonial White, Cocoa, and Champagne as my neutrals this week. :)
I wanted to try to keep it CAS (clean and simple) on this card in order to highlight the gorgeous patterns in the hexagon stamps. Take a look at all of the different patterns in this set...
I used a Kraft card base for this card, and inked all the hexagon edges with Cocoa Exclusive Ink. I think it looks like grout between tiles, lol! Now I want hexagon shaped tiles in my kitchen backsplash! Wouldn't that be FANTASTIC!? :)
Just for fun, can you see my patten oops in the card? I didn't notice until I was editing my pics, lol.
I love the sentiment that is included in this set. It actually spurred me to snatch up a set with little bees on it so I can combine the two sometime. Not for this one, though.
This gold colored glitter paper is a brand new product this Spring for Close to My Heart! This color is found in the Brown and Tan Glitter Paper Packet. I really do like this light color in the pack, and it went really well with my colors, so why not add some bling? In fact, I liked it so much that I added a strip on the inside of the card as well. :)
Here is my complete creative formulary for this card:
Kraft, Colonial White, and Champagne Cardstock
Light Tan (gold) Glitter Paper
Cocoa, Sunset, Honey, and Buttercup My Exclusive Ink Pads
