Hexagon Hello & Peeks

Posted on

I had a very quiet Saturday, but sometimes that’s necessary no? I’m not really a fan of relaxed and quiet, I would much rather be busy. I ran some errands, worked on some projects and enjoyed the somewhat warm sunny day. I did take a little time to just sit outside and be for a bit. I don’t do that often enough and it felt good. How is your weekend going so far? I’m off to Manhattan this morning. Hopefully it won’t rain!

Today I have a simple card for you that I made using some scraps that I had lying around. The base of the card is Whisper White Card Stock. I punched out two pieces of Pool Party with the Hexagon Punch and smaller hexagons are pieces that were leftover from using the Hexagon Hive Thinlit Die*. I simply adhered them to the card and then stamped the greeting from the Four You Stamp Set in Pool Party. Simple yet fun and highly mailable. I hope you enjoyed my simple sunday card and thanks for coming by. I hope you have a nice simple Sunday! 🙂

  1. Hi Justin – your card today is very much my type of design. Clean and simple. I do love the hexagon punch and didn’t realize how beautifully the “scraps” from the hexagon hive thinlet die would fit into the punched hexagons. I have to start using my scraps more. They just keep piling up and frankly, I kind of forget about them. I guess I need to pay more attention. LOL You have a great day in Manhattan, we are poised to receive 6″-10″ of wet heavy snow late afternoon into tomorrow. With all the ice on the trees that will most likely mean more power outages. Oh well, I guess it’s just “wintah” here in Maine.

    • Hey Grace! Yes, I need a clean and simple card every so often! I too have to use my scraps more! I had to do a swap and used the Hexagon Hive Die, you will see a lot more Tangerine hexagons!! Manhattan was miserable and rainy, not a day for walking around. I’ll take rain over snow any day though! Yes, that is definitely “wintah” in Maine! Keep warm! 🙂

  2. You bet I enjoy this card. Once you determined your color combo and placement, you could mass produce this in 5 or less. Don’t think? How long did it take? I highly recommend sitting outside more often, in appropriate weather of course. It is something I do as much as I can, especially in the evening. I live in the country and it’s so nice to watch the sunset and listen to Mother Nature. So relaxing and clears the mind. On the other hand I do love the big cities, so I am jealous of you always being able to run into Manhattan. Enjoy your day rain or shine. Thanks again Justin for another adorable card.

    • Yeah! Thanks Lisa! It only took 10 minutes to make, love when that happens! I will definitely take your advice, I can’t wait for the warmer weather so I can sit outside a lot! It did clear my mind. I would like to be in the country, it’s too crowded here sometimes. Manhattan was ok, too much rain. Thanks for visiting! 🙂

  3. Happy Sunday Justin! Hope you’re having a great time on your Manhattan adventure today! Looking forward to your pictures! Love this card…the simplicity is nice. I don’t use up my scraps often enough. Great colors too. The hexagons are spaced and placed perfectly! Thanks again for sharing your creations with us!

    • Happy Sunday Karen! Manhattan was gloomy today, I wasn’t in long. I do have one picture to share tomorrow. Yes, the card is simple but fun. Thank you for checking in! 🙂
