Stampin' Up! UK Hexagon Punch Patchwork

I love the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper stack from the Stampin' Up! UK spring catalogue and it is too gorgeous to have just used it for Valentine's treats and then discard it so I decided that a birthday card would be a good start.  I've also used a tried, tested and age old design i.e. the patchwork quilt to make the design on my card.  I remember cutting out card hexagons at school and tacking fabric onto them to then overstitch them all together to make a quilt.  This way seems much easier, just not as good at keeping you warm. Just by using the hexagon punch I've punched out the shape in the different papers and remember the stacks are double sided so you have plenty to choose from.

To add a sentiment you just need to punch out the shape and keep the punched out piece to mark push through the aperture when your top layer is in place. Remove the top layer leaving the punched shape in place. Draw around it so that you know the limits of your stamping.  Here I used the incredibly flexible Crazy About You stamp set which is lots of words that you can put together to build your own message.

A knot of silver ribbon just adds a touch....... and you're away.  It's also flat for posting YAY!!!!

Why don't you have a go with other papers you have and maybe use up scraps that you can bear to throw away, but feel you should move them on!  Of course you could try with any other punch to build a patchwork with a different shape.

In fact why not take a look at the triangle punch in this week's weekly deals and make a three sided patchwork!

I'd love to see what you create, so please do share you designs by sending me a picture to and I'll share them here.
