Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge: Six Sided Sampler Meets Bombs Away Birthday

Happy Monday friends!  What a fun filled weekend, I got to experience Hobby Lobby with a friend, this was my first visit and boy what a fun store, I could have spent all day there.  Also Aidan and Chris got home Sunday afternoon and it was so great to get the family all back together and Mocha really enjoyed having us all back.  So I was able to spend a little time in the studio this weekend so I wanted to get back to participating in some sketch challenges and was able to make some birthday cards I needed in the process.  This card is for my hubby and is for the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Basic Grey, Basic Black, Real Read, and Pacific Point for the color palette for this card.

I love the hexagon graphic elements that are so popular right now so I embossed the black piece with the Big Shot and the Hexagon embossing folder and then added lots of hexagon shapes using stamped pieces from the Six Sided Sampler stamp set as well as different Designer Series Paper, including (the Polka Dot Parade DSP, Brights Paper Stack, as well the retired Neutrals Paper Stack (I haven't order all the new paper, yet!).  The coordinating hexagon punch made punching these guys out super simple and they all fit together.  I also added some Whisper White and Pacific Point 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain ribbon.  The greeting is from the Bombs Away Birthday Photopolymer stamp set (love the tongue and cheek greetings!) and cut it and the mat with the Oval Collections Framelits.
I really like how this card turned out, it's fun and fresh and totally right for a dude card. 
Hope you enjoy and have a great day, it's supposed to be beautiful here in Northern VA, we even have the AC off and the windows open at home, don't normally get to do that in July.
Happy stamping,

Pin It!
