Hop on to check out some of the creative ideas with the brand new images:


This is one of the new Cover-a-Card stamps Vintage Honeycomb. When I first saw it, it made me think of the Copic Hex Chart. So I thought I'd color it with a little Copic Rainbow. After coloring the swatch I added Glossy Accents to some of the honeycombs so they would really shine and stand out. I die cut the Birthday Word Die several times, then I glued and stacked them so it is more of a chipboard like element. Finished card is an A2.

  4. I have ALWAYS loved the CAC backgrounds but found using them to be difficult at times because I never know whether to put them in the background or make them the star of the show! TY for showing another way to use them AND make them a main focal point that isn't overwhelming! Love this!!

  6. Did you stamp the honeycomb twice to get the shadow effect or is the stamp made that way? Gorgeous card.
