Rainbow Hexagons - Simon Says Stamp

Good morning! Super excited to share this card today - I shared a little sneak peek of it on Instagram the other night when I was working on it - and was so happy with the finished results on this one! I used a gorgeous stamp set from Simon Says Stamp to create this card - keep reading for more details!

I started off by heat embossing the beautiful Center Cut Hexagon Floral stamp set on white cardstock with clear embossing powder. I popped out the center one to leave a focal point for my sentiment.

Next, I stamped that center one on a scrap of white cardstock, carefully fussy cut it out, then from the back of the negative piece, taped the cut that I made to get into it to cut it out. Now I effectively had a stencil to add color to each individual hexagon on my background!

I moved around and blended a rainbow of distress inks over each hexagon using my Life Changing blender brushes. I intentionally blended darker around the outer edge and left a lighter area in the center for a bit of a halo effect.

I added my sentiment with foam adhesive using CZ Design Reverse Sentiment Strips Miss You (LOVE that sentiment!), and added a tiny additional sentiment (fitting for 2020) using the Let's Connect stamp set. Finished off with a few Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh - and this bright happy card was finished!
