This week for Tuesday Tips I created a card for my team meeting swap using my favorite Honeycomb stamp set and In The Background (both available in just a couple of days!!). I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch, with a color inspiration from The Play Date Cafe.
My tip for today is that, while you won't find this super popular hexagon shape on my normal Cricut go-to's Art Philosophy or Artiste, if you dig into your stash you will find it on the much older cartridge Accent Essentials! I did these hexagons at 1 inch matted onto a 1 1/4" hexagon from Accent Essentials. I cut the sentiment on Artiste, and popped it up with itty bitty slivers of 3-D Foam tape.
And since it's Tuesday tips, here's a little peek at my current Jamberry shields - I got my new Holiday shields in and I couldn't wait to put them on! I'm wearing a combo of Hugs and Kisses with Blooming Hearts in the newer thinner material and I love them! I was worried that the black ink I
got all over my hands was stamping with would stain the Jams, but they just wiped clean!
And here's a closer look at that Art Philosophy butterfly. I inked her up using a combo of Sweet Leaf and Topiary alcohol markers, then stamped the damask hexagon over each wing to add the texture. A swipe of black ink on the edges and a couple of sparkles and this butterfly was ready to soar!
Thanks for stopping by for Tuesday Tips!
