Inspired By Stamping July Releases - Hexagons

It's the last Inspired By Stamping sneak peek before all the sets are available in the store tomorrow!  Today we're showcasing Hexagons. I went with a modern, gender-neutral baby card:
 

The sentiment is from a previously-released set, Big Notes III.  I stamped the hexagon border first across the patterned paper. On scraps of white cardstock, I stamped the different patterns of individual hexies with many shades of brown ink.  A few were propped up with foam stickers, as you can see in the photo below.  My kids wrinkled their noses at this card, but I like it for something different!


Be sure to see what the rest of our design team has cooked up for you:

Now that is so pretty!!! The brown hexagons are so lovely with the green stripe. I would not have envisioned that combination together and yet, it works so beautifully.

I have a place in my heart for that hexagon shape and your card is a stunner. This is a lovely stamp set!

Hope you are well; I read on fb that you had surgery? Geesh I've been away too long; my apologies.( I feel a bit embarassed for not being around)
