Creatively Redeeming Treasures Close To My Heart Blog Hop

Welcome to the Creatively Redeeming Treasures Team Blog Hop! If you are coming from Heather's Blog you are in the right place.

This month's theme was using the Honey Comb Stamp Set from Close To My Heart. This is one of my favorite stamp sets and I had a blast creating with it! Here are two cards that I made using this stamp set.

The first card I made, I used the hexagons to create a six petal flower.

I used all white paper in this card. I used CTMH Autumn Terracotta, Honey, Topiary, & Pacifica Ink. The sentiment is from the Casual Expressions Stamp Set and the leaves are from the Just For You Stamp Set by Close To My Heart.

I created the petals on the flower by stamping the hexagon design three times, cutting them out, and then folding each one in half and attaching them together. See close up picture below:

The next card that I did is really simple. I used the hexagons like mosaic tiles to create a design.

Again, I used CTMH Autumn Terracotta, Topiary, & Pacifica Ink. I used the Honey Marker to color in the Bee which is from the Bugs & Hugs Stamp Set by Close To My Heart. The paper I used is Honey, and it is stamped in Cashmere Ink with the texture stamp from Distressed Backgrounds Stamp Set, one of my favorites! The sentiment and the hexagon tiles are from the Honeycomb Stamp Set.

Thank you for joining me for this blog hop. Now it's time to HOP on over to see Angelina's Blog.
