August 2018 Reveal, Release, Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!


Finally the day has arrived and the August 2018 Release is NOW available to purchase HERE on the website. We have our traditional Reveal, Release, Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY! Hopefully you have hoped on over from the start of the hop HERE.

I managed to squeeze in a little more creative time in between admin jobs and created a ‘twofer’ using the new Background Builders: Happy Hexagons clear stamp set…


First up is this funky design!

I used one of the larger single hexagons to create this background. I didn’t use my stamping tool this time, I just eyeballed it and there is no particular sequence, it is totally random. I then used my Stampin’ Up! markers in bright colours to create the stripes.


I trimmed and adhered the panel to some black card before adhering to my white card base. The ‘hello’ sentiment is from BIG & BOLD Hello, stamped, embossed in white & fussy cut out. I really *need* some dies to match these BIG & BOLD sentiments 😉
Next, I went for another brightly stamped masculine design using the hexagons, but with a softer overall feel to the card…
I used my favourite Altenew ink colours to again stamp the larger single hexagons, just by eyeballing it. I layered the panel with some Basic Grey card and added the ‘You Rock’ sentiment from Simply Said Blocks.
The current challenge over at Twofer Card Challenge HERE and seen below is ‘Geometrics’, hence me making a twofer with Background Builders: Happy Hexagons!

Unfortunately, I only had time to finish these two cards 🙁
I did start making some watercolored cards very late last night, but ran out of energy to finish them, so I will be back tomorrow with those to share 🙂

I know the Design Team have been much more organised and have prepared lots of wonderful cards to inspire you using the new products, so be sure to hop along their blogs below…

Be sure to comment along the hop for your chance to win the ENTIRE Release!! You have until Midnight (BST) 2nd  September 2018 to comment and the winner will be announced soon after.

Happy Hopping!

    Great minds think alike! I just came from visiting the Twofers made by Jules where she also used the hexagon set! I love your two designs, Bev! You have gone from bold and vibrant to soft and lovely! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #8! (Next time, please link a photo of both cards together. If you still have them and want to relink your entry, that would be terrific!) Hugs, Darnell

    This stamp is just perfect for the Twofer Card Challenge this month! 🙂 LOVE your beautiful hexagons with the striped sections that are triangles. Two geometric shapes in one! Your first card is very dramatic with the bold colours on black. The die-cut hello really pops.

    Your second card is so pretty with the bright, summery colours. Another wonderful design highlighting these fabulous stamps. Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge!

    Geometry is certainly my thing and what better way to showcase those awesome hexagons!!!! Wonderfully masculine cards!

    Wow, those hexagons look like fun (and I am not really a hexagon type of girl, but that set might change that…)! I can’t believe that you used the same stamps because your cards look so different! The pattern on the first one looks so dramatic and striking while the softer colors on the second card are really pretty! What a perfect set to use for our challenge!
    Thank you so much for joining us at the Twofer!

    Talk about some jazzy hexagon action happening with your Twofer set! The first is head-turning striking; the second, soft and pretty! A dazzling duo!

    The geometrics are so pretty.
    They made an interesting design that
    look so complicated but aren’t.
    thanks for sharing

    These cards are so cool and when I saw the stamp, I actually thought of Twofers!! Fabulous takes with one stampset, Bev!

    Wow!! Those are some fabulous hexies, Bev!! The one you’ve used for your first card has really caught my eye. So very cool that there’s a coloring option to it!! It’s a perfect masculine card. And the bright, pretty colors of your second card really pops with the gray mat. Fabulous cards!! Thanks so very much for joining us at the Twofer Challenge. Bev

    Fun stamps and right on trend, too! Love how you’ve created two totally different cards using the same stamps. The first one is so bold, while the second one is so soft. This is a great stamp set for masculine cards.
