Stampin' Up! Six Sided Sampler
& Kind & Cozy
Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Hop!
We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who will be bringing you lots of ideas for one particular stamp set twice a month (Sometimes trice a month)!! The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month, you can hop along from one blog to the next gathering all kinds of inspiration for one Stampin' Up! stamp set. You may have come from Kerry Willard Bray's kerrywillardbray.com website. If you get lost along the way, click the banner to be taken to the Stamp Review Crew website.
When I first saw this set it reminded me of a patchwork quilt. So decided to go with that. This is also a homage to our retiring 2012-2014 In Color Collection. I might mention as well that the paper piecing idea was borrowed from Mary Fish, with my own little twist.
Putting It Together Tips:
- Think out of the box! Or in this case, think out of the hexagon. Just because there are hexagons with different patterns in them, it doesn't mean that I have to use the whole hexagon. I used the patterns to create the paper piecing stock. It not only made it easy to match, it also created continuity in the design.
- Use your darkest color, in this case Midnight Muse, as your ground color. It was used as the background mat, image frame, and the ink I used to stamp the tulips.
- I stamped the Midnight Muse gingham frame on a piece of Whisper White card stock first. Then I created a mask for the frame using a Post-it note and the 4th smallest Circle Collections FrameLits. I inked the Blessed Easter image and stamped the three tulips in the center of the frame, and then punched out the frame using the 2 1/2“ circle punch. Perfect!
