Color Six Sided Sampler Challenge

Here we are again with challenge Thursday.  This week is flying by!!  It helps that it is only a 4 day work week!

I just love these colors together!  They are soft, but yet, they have such a pop to them.  It is even better when you use Smokey Slate.  LOL  I don't know what I was looking at last night, but I used Smokey Slate instead of Basic Gray.  Oh well it still came out nice! You can judge for yourself!

I cased this card out of the Stampin' Up! catalog.  It is on page 125.  Of course I changed the colors to match the color challenge, and didn't even get that right!

I have to admit that I really never used this stamp set until last night to make this card.  I have used the words but never the six sided images.  What I really like about this set is that it has a punch to go with the six sided images to punch out.  Stampin' Up! makes it so easy for us!!  What is even can still get the Bundle and SAVE 15%.  So you would get the stamp set and the punch.  But hurry you only have 2 more days.

The little button is filled with the silver that is from the Silver Bakers Twine.  I just took off the silver in the twine and threaded it through the button and tied a bow.  I believe it gave the card a little extra accent.  For the six sided hexagon that has the hole in it, I stamped the image on Whisper White cardstock and then punched out a 3/4" hole in any color cardstock and centered the punched circle in the middle of the stamped image and took the 3/4" punch and punched the hole.  The 3/4" hole I punched the 1st time was for a guide to get it centered in the middle of the stamped image.
