Hooked on Hexagons

Are you hooked on hexagons? There's a challenge at Moxie Fab World to use hexagons on your project. 


I pulled out the mini hexagon stamp set from Papertrey Ink and inked them up with Distress inks. Because I eyeballed the spacing between each hexagon, it's not perfect placement, but I'm happy with how it turned out after five tries.


I could have used any sentiment to go with the design, but chose the one that came with the set and added a gemstone for a bit of bling. Done!

I may give this challenge another try since I have a few ideas for some hexagon dies that haven't been used yet. If you're into the hexagon trend, you'll want to give this challenge a go. The deadline to upload your projects is July 30th. Go here for all the details.

  8. Donna, you did a great job eyeballing those stamps...even if it took 5 tries (I'd still be trying!)! I have those stamps and the coordinating die on my wish list...I''ve seen many pretty cards out there using those stamps! (Lisa has been cranking them out...she's the one who first turned me on to the stamp/die set!) Simply beautiful, cheerful, colorful...a wonderful card design for any occasion!
