Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration: Hexagon Get Well Wishes

Good morning friends!  Today over at the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog it's all about hexagons and not only are they so popular and "in" right now but I love them and use them on projects frequently.  They're so great on all types of cards, including masculine and feminine cards alike.  For my card I have a friend who's been ill recently so I decided to combine the hexagons with the Tag It! stamp set to send her special greetings that will hopefully have her on the mend soon. 
The cardbase is Island Indigo and I added a layer of Whisper White cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and the Hexagon Embossing Folder.  Next I used the Six Sided Sampler stamp set to stamp several of the hexagon images in Basic Gray and Island Indigo ink before punching them out with the coordinating Hexagon Punch.  I used the same punch to punch out a couple of hexagons out of the Real Red Designer Series Paper.  I added a piece of Real Red 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon for a fun touch.
The greeting is from the Tag It! stamp set (this stamp set is this years Ronald McDonald stamp set so Stampin' Up! donates money from each stamp set sold to this fabulous charity so you get to help a worthy cause when you purchase this great stamp set) and I used Stampin' Write Markers to color directly on the rubber and then cut out the image with the Big Shot and the coordinating Chalk Talk Framelits (these work so great with the new Magnetic Big Shot Platform).  The greeting was attached to the card with dimensionals so it really pops up.
If you haven't tried using the products including hexagon images you've got to give it a try, I'm sure you'll love them and fall in love them.  Enjoy!
