Hexagon Kuwaii

Birthday Party Live – Project #7

It’s the last project of the Birthday Party Live series!! It’s gone by so fast! I thought I would end the series with this cute Kawaii inspired hexagon pencil pot. And you don’t need a lot to make one! Each one turns out differently because of the random stamping technique used to decorate each of the pots.

I chose to keep these ones quite simple, with a cute flower pattern and a face. Both stamps are from the Hippo Happiness stamp set. As you can see from the photograph, the pots are a good size and fit pens / pencils, glue, stamp blocks and many other things.

The Petal Pink version in the video below was done in the same way. All three are glued together with Tombow and helps to keep things together on a craft table. My daughter has stolen the Purple Posy version from me, but I still have the Petal Pink one.

Which colour do you prefer?

Triangular Shades of Purple

Happy Hump Day to you all! I hope you are all keeping safe and well? Today, I wanted to showcase some dies recently introduced in the Annual Catalogue. I love basic shapes – squares, circles, rectangles – and we have a lot of these available as dies with stitched effect too. However, we didn’t have any triangles until now..

At first I wasn’t too sure how I was going to use them, but I knew I wanted them to be purple and not used around a sentiment. In the end, I kept playing with their positioning and this is what I came up with. I love the differing shades of purple and how they work with one another – another reason to use Stampin’ Up! colours.

I then finished the card off with the ‘Lovely You’ stamp set and kept the card neutral from any event, with a touch of Crumb Cake ink to highlight the floral stamp used. I hope you like this as much as I do?!

Best Wishes,
Suzanne
