Happy Tuesday, Pinkfresh friends! Yasmin here sharing with you these 2 “Simply Hexagon” cards that I’ve created using the newest and beautiful Pop Out Hexagons Cling Stamp Set, Simply Hexagons Die and Hexagon Floral Bunches Die sets. So, without further ado let’s jump into the step by step on how I made them.
To begin with, I started by placing inside my stamping tool a white card panel. Next, I lined up over the card panel the Pop Out Hexagons Cling Stamp Set. Therefore, once the background stamp was lined up over the card panel, I picked it up with the stamping tool door and I carefully popped each of the hexagon pieces out. Then, right after that I was done removing the hexagon pieces, I added lots of embossing tool powder to the card panel and I’ve got it the frame stamped 3X with embossing ink. So, as soon as I was done stamping the frame over the card panel, I removed the card panel from the stamping tool but, I kept the frame onto place because, I was going to comeback to keep stamping. Meanwhile, I added gold heat embossing powder over the card panel, and I heat set the powder with the heat embossing tool until the card panel was completely melted.
This stamp set includes 1 Solid Hexagon, 1 Striped Hexagon, 5 Floral options and 8 Sentiments isn’t that cool!?? So, after I was done heat embossing the frame over the card panel, I placed the card panel back into where it was, and I've got popped back inside the frame the striped hexagon on the top left side of the frame. Therefore, after I’ve got the striped hexagon in place went ahead and I started the stamping from left to right with the following Pinfresh Studio Inks; Sparkling Rose, Ballet Slipper, Coral Reef, Apricot, Marigold and Sunshine. If you see closely, in the image above you might notice that I took a step further by changing the position on the striped hexagon as I was stamping each of the hexagons for a modern & geometric look.
So, right after that I was done stamping the striped hexagon, I set it aside, and I popped back inside the frame 2 of the floral hexagon options on each side of the card panel. As you can see after I was done popping them inside the frame, I’ve gotten them stamped and gold heat embossed. Therefore, after the floral hexagons were stamped and heat embossed, I popped them out and I set them aside. Meanwhile, to finish the stamping and heat embossing I went ahead to pop back inside the frame 6 of the sentiments and I also got them stamp and gold heat embossing. Finally, after the sentiments were stamped and heat embossed, I removed the card panel from the stamping tool and I trimmed the edges off from it a bit smaller than the card base so, right after I was done trimming the edges off, I stacked the backing to a larger panel which I’ve had previously created out of gold cardstock, and last but not least, I got the card panel adhered to an A2 top folding white card base with double-sided tape. Then, to finish the card off I mounted in the center of the card with craft foam and liquid glue one of the floral which I’ve had tamp, gold heat embossing, color in and die-cutting using the coordinated die from the Hexagon Floral Bunches Die Set.
While the first example might sound a bit complicated, I promise you is not because once you get the hang of it is an easy process. That said, for the second example I lined up over a white card panel the Simply Hexagons Die, and I ran it through the die-cutting machine 2X to create 2 die-cut frames.
Once, I had the hexagon die-cutting frames done, I popped the positive die-cutting pieces out from one of the frames, and I glued it down with liquid glue to a top folding white card base. While for the other, I kept the pieces together as I was going to stamp over each hexagon. Because, I left the frame from the background stamp onto place inside the stamping tool it was much easier to line up. So, I placed the card panel in the same position as the previous example and I got once again the hexagon stamped with the same colors that I used on the previous example. However, as you can see in the image above this time instead of stamping the striped hexagon, I used the solid hexagon for a solid geometric stamping.
Lastly, after I was done stamping the solid colors, I added lots of embossing powder tool to the card panel and I repeated the stamping and heat embossing process for the rest of the hexagons, and beside getting the floral and striped hexagons I also got a sentiment stamp and gold heat embossing in the center. So, after I’ve had done the stamping and heat embossing over the card panel, I removed each of the hexagons from the stamping tool, and I popped each of them up with square adhesives in the card base following the spaces from the frame that was already adhered over the card base adding that way a very dimensional look.
With that said, I hope you have enjoyed reading the step by step on how I’ve created these cards showcasing stunning stamps and dies by Pinkfresh Studio. If you get inspired don’t forget to tag us @pinkfreshstudio and use #pinkfreshstudio so we can see your projects!
