March ODBD challenge for OWH


The ODBD March challenge for OWH is to make the sentiment the focus of our card. I made 3 cards using a SU! hexagon ef, and making use of lots of snippets. I emboss the snippets with the same ef, and snip them right along the embossed edge and then use a drop or two of glue to place them into the embossed card stock in random patterns. This large sentiment stamp is by Impression Obsession. I used a Lil Inker stitched rectangle die to cut it, and matted it with GinaK Blue Raspberry card stock. The snipped hexes are all black and white patterns while the card base is Smoky Slate.


Here's the red version, with a black card base & mat.


I did this one a little differently. I used 1 dsp for the snippets, adding punched stars on some hexes, and stamping smoky slate splattered spots on others with a stick stamp by Judith. I think this is my favorite of the 3, using PTI Soft stone cardstock for the embossed and main panels.

I'll be sharing these cards over at the Snippets Playground #167 which also features a beautiful card made by Di featuring this hexagon snippet technique!

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day today!

I love all three of these cards Carol! I so gotta try this technique out cause I love those snippets used in the center of the embossing folder! I am totally loving that sentiment too because there is so much truth in those words! Hugs, Brenda

Great cards, as always, Carol! Yup, I snip my hexagons just like you do :) Not that the end results are as lovely as yours though.

Hugs

I'm with you, I like the one with the stars best, but they are all great. They make me think of snugly, comfy quilts.

All great cards, Carol, and great one for the Owh challenge.

Lots of therapy going on here...maybe I need to get a hexagon punch...so I can stop my addiction to making side step cards, and trade it for Hexagons for a while...LOL!
