Six Sided Sampler for The Paper Players



Greetings, Stampers! How are you all doing on this awesome Sunday? The forecast in New York today is sunny and in the upper 70's, a welcome change after tropical storm Andrea dumped six inches of rain on us in a few hours here on Friday. I must say, it was a scary storm! Well, the good news is I hear that no more hurricanes will ever be named after "moi", LOL!  

Ann has a terrific color challenge for us to play along with this week at The Paper Players. What a great combination, so summery and fresh.  Of course I took this opportunity to play with some of my new "toys"...


I'm embracing my Clean and Simple side today with this simple card featuring the new stamp set, Six Sided Sampler. Also new are the colorful little Candy Dots. I love them so much! I think I've put them on every project since I received them! Unlike brads, you have the luxury of adding them to your project after it's otherwise complete. My indecisive side loves that!


When I saw that the challenge this week at Friday Mashup was all about hexagons, who could resist playing along with that challenge, too! Their challenge this week is to create a project using hexagons, or create a girly project, or Mash it Up and create a girly project using Hexagons. I'm not sure if my CAS project is girly enough, but the hexagons are certainly there!


I used ink pads in all the challenge colors and my trusty Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get the hexagons perfectly lined up. There is a new hexagon punch to coordinate with this stamp set, too, though I didn't use it today. One sweet little greeting, and zip-zip it is done!


Stampin Up Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Six Sided Sampler
Card Stock: Whisper White, So Saffron, Early Espresso
Ink Pads: So Saffron, Early Espresso, Pool Party, Calypso Coral
Accessories: Candy Dots

Thanks so much for visiting today! Please leave a comment, and then head over to The Paper Players blog to play along!

  4. Sandy, I LOVE this! What a fabulously clean design and great use for this stamp set. I'm kicking myself that it wasn't included on my "first round" of ordering! Thanks for showing me the error of my ways ;) Glad you joined us this week at The Friday Mashup.
