CCC #43... hello, hexagons!

Hello friends!!  Happy Tuesday and it is indeed a happy one in my corner of the world because our splendidly fine weather continues... YAY!  And it is also a happy day because it means that a brand new CASology challenge is awaiting you on the CASology blog!  This week our cue word is "hexagon" and I know there will be a ton of fabulous hexagon related designs in the gallery.   And if that isn't enough our guest designer this week is none other than the fabulously talented Jenny of Crafting in the Country!!!   We are being sponsored this week by Cindy Coutts.  All the details can be found here.




For my card this week I went masculine and used the hexagon images from the PTI set Rosie Posie.  I'm still trying to figure out why it took me so long to purchase that set because it is absolutely fabulous!!  Anywhoo... I paired the hexagon images with a sentiment from one of my favorite Hero Arts set Year Round Sentiments and a masculine color combo from CAS Colours & Sketches.   I did take some time to do a few test runs to make sure that I liked the layout of the images before stamping the final version.   When stamping with images like the ones I used it isn't a bad idea to spend the time doing a few test runs so that you end up with a clean and simple design that makes sense.

Thanks for stopping by... I cannot wait to see what "hexagon" related ideas all you super talented papercrafters come up with for this challenge!! In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth, Judy, Maureen, and Meghan
and our guest designer, Jenny!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  PTI Rosie Posie & Hero Arts; Inks:  SU! Midnight Muse & So Saffron; Memento Tangelo & Tuxedo Black

The way you've stamped the different colours actually makes these look 3D - so cool and clever!

I have to tell you, I LOVE this masculine CAS design, Rosemary! When I first saw it I was staring at it in awe! I may just have to CASE this...hmm, that may mean a PTI purchase, however. LOL! You've got me curious as to what else in included in that set now! :) The 15th of the month is just around the corner...
