SUO Challenge #103


Geometric Shapes – Hexagon Hives Thinlit


SUOC 103 Geometric Shapes Challenge design team card created by Pam Staples #sunnygirlscraps #stampinup #hexagonhive


I've patiently been waiting to use the Hexagon Hive Thinlit for just the right card using a technique where you actually sponge the image then trace an outline with a Stampin' Marker.  This card was lots of fun to make especially as I used the Hexagon Hive thinlit in a non-traditional method.    The Honeycomb Hello stamp set provided the perfect touch for adding the sentiment along with a little whimsy with the bumble bee buzzing around the flower.  

So, here are a few things to keep in mind…


SunnyGirlScraps Tips & Tricks:


  • Consider stretching your creativity by using a tool in new and creative ways such as what I did with the Hexagon Hive Thinlit.
  • Feel free to mix styles – Here I mixed "Vintage" with "Whimsical" for a fun card.
  • When shopping and purchasing Stampin' Up! products, keep in mind the "Bundled" items!  The Honeycomb Hello Stamp Set and Hexagon Hive Thinlit can be purchased as a Bundle where you receive a 15% discount.
  • Sponge Daubers are great for keeping your hands clean and now Stampin' Up! sells them in smaller packs of 5!  Organizational tip – Label  each individual Sponge Dauber so you know what color you used.
