Gotta keep stamping

Yes, I love stamps, I love stamping!!!
 Another new stamp set for me is this amazing set of hexagons from The Stamps of Life.  The set contains different patterns and different sizes so that really, you could create with this over and over.  I used the Colour Q color combo for this week as my color inspiration.  This also fits the Moxie Fab Hexagon challenge.
(ps - I found another hexagon challenge at City Crafters!!!)
 For my card I used three of the stamps in this set along with the sentiment.
 The Colour Q combo
 This card fits the Card Positioning System sketch for this week along with some great Hero Arts stamps and a matching die.
 I stamped the background with white and embossed it with white and then colored the cardstock with some Distress Stain.  The butterfly is colored with two shades of the Distress Stain and what I love is that this shape has a matching die for cutting it out.  I accented the butterfly with some Glossy Accents.
 Here is the CPS sketch.
Gotta share some photos...
 We stopped for lunch and this neat sculpture was sitting on a bench.  My grandson immediately was trying to interact with it. It was so fun to capture these photos with my Hipstamatic camera on my phone.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
