Rainbow Hexagons


Hi, it's a bleak, rainy day here, perfect for staying indoors. It's a shame I have a lot of outside chores to do, maybe tomorrow!

I was inspired by a couple of challenges to make this card.
Addicted to CAS has a rainbow code word and at CASology the theme is to create a project using hexagons.

I punched 1/8" circles out of scraps and they fitted perfectly into the centres of this hexagon embossing folder. I didn't make much of a dent in my scraps, but it was therapeutic gluing all the dots in!

Edited to add: I'm going to play in the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. I thought I'd used up all my goes on the swings, but Di assures me I'm still allowed in, woohoo!

Materials used: MBossabilities So Trendy embossing folder; Fiskars circle punch; memory Box label die; sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)

  4. Wahoo - just stunning! I didn't count the dots but did find myself checking that Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain :)

    You did use snippets and I just checked the Playground. Am sure you only played on the swings twice this week - so you could add a third card if you wish, this one is perfect!

    Hugs, Di xx

  6. Hi Cathy - my fault entirely! Got AM and PM mixed up and the Playground gates closed 12 hours early! Open until 3pm UK time today now - if you don't see this and manage to link then I'll do it for you. It's a bit trickier 'cos I need to save and then upload your photo so if you do it that would save me a bit of time.

    Apologies again - off to stand on the 'naughty step', move over girls!!

    Hugs, Di xx

  9. Wow, what a fabulous idea! Here I was all mad that I didn't have a hexagon punch to go with my hexagon folder. Who would have thought that I could use a circle punch? Thanks for sharing that tip. I will definitely have to try it. It looks great on your card. I love the small pops of color. Thanks for playing at ATCAS. :)
