“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 18th September 2014


#CreateWithKathe #JorjaRoseFiles

Thursday’s “Create with Kathe” Class, we had 2 new ladies attend the evening Class.
As per Bev’s request … we learnt all about “Hexagons”!
I love to share how the Stampin’ Up! products are so versatile, and match back with each other, and the Hexagon family of products are an awesome example ….
There is the “Six-Sided Sampler” stamp set and matching Hexagon Punch, the “Honeycomb” Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the “Hexagon Hive” Thinlits.
Our first project featured the “Oh My Goodies” and “Perfect Pennant” stamp sets + of course heaps of hexagons …
The second project is a case that has been altered, originally made as a Christmas card by Jacque Williams from Stamp Happy, but altered to be a “Floral Patch” birthday card, and features the “Endless Wishes”, “Hardwood”, and “Flower Patch” stamp sets …

Project 1 Hexagons Gone Mad


The card base for this card is Lost Lagoon, which is overlayed with Whisper White cardstock, that has been embossed with the “Honeycomb” Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
The gorgeous “All Abloom” Designer Series Paper Stack has been cut into tiny hexagons, using the “Hexagon Hive” Thinlits – makes life so much easier when these products interchange with each other!
Each card has 3 hexagons which are extra special, as they are from the gorgeous Glimmer Paper, and are in “Dazzling Diamonds”, on the inside of the card, there is also a heart punched with the “Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack”.
For the Pennant/Banner, White Stampin’ Emboss Powder has been used on Vellum, with the words “Life Doesn’t Have To Be Perfect To Be Wonderful” is from the “Perfect Pennants” stamp set.
The Vellum is laid over Lost Lagoon cardstock and cut using the “Banners” Framelits.
A scrap of Venetian Crochet Trim runs down the length of the Pennant/Banner.
A Very Vintage Designer Buttons is threaded with Linen Thread, and tied with a bow, and placed on the Pennant/Banner.


On the inside of the card, the words “Live Well laugh hard Love Big” {yes the words are in lower and upper case!} are from the “Oh My Goodies” stamp set and are coloured using the Stampin’ Write Markers in Daffodil Delight, Lost Lagoon and Strawberry Slush , and stamped on Whisper White cardstock.
The “Hearts Border” Punch gives negative detail, as the Lost Lagoon cardstock shows through the punched hearts.
A perfect little heart punched from the “Dazzling Diamonds” Glimmer Paper on the bottom right hand corner finished the project nicely
Wah-lah …”Hexagons Gone Mad” card done!

Project 2 Flower Patch case


This second project is a case that has been altered, originally made as a Christmas card by Jacque Williams from Stamp Happy, but altered to be a “Floral Patch” birthday card, and features the “Endless Wishes”, “Hardwood”, and “Flower Patch” stamp sets …
The card base is Crumb Cake, first cut a circle with the “Circles Collection” Framelits, or with a 2 ½” Punch.
Then with the “Hardwood” Background stamp, stamp in Sahara Sand, so that the Hardwood stamp runs half way through the circle.
Stamp along the edge of the “Hardwood” image, in Calypso Coral the word “Greetings” from the “Endless Wishes” stamp set.
Tie Bakers Twine in White, around the edge of the card, threading back into the circle, in three strands, on the lower portion of the card tie a bow, on the upper portion of the card tie a neat and tidy reef knot at the back.
As an anchor, add a Rhinestone Basic Jewel that has been coloured with the Calypso Coral Blendabilities Pens in the darker of the 3 shades, on the bottom right hand corner of the card {to anchor the project}.


For the card insert, line up the Whisper White cardstock {but don’t adhere yet}, through the Circle {or window}, stamp and layer flowers from the “Flower Patch” stamp set in Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral.
Below the flower, stamp the words “Happy Blooming Birthday” in Calypso Coral, ensuring that the words are not seen through the Circle {or window}.
Add a small heart in Calypso Coral, punched using the “Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack” to the b0ottom right hand corner of the Insert.
NOW you ca adhere the Insert to the Base!
Wah-lah … “Flower Patch case” done!
