Pretty Pansies

I'm back with another card using the Pressing Thoughts stamp set, part Of Ellen Hutson's new Essentials by Ellen release! Pansies are such a cute flower - we had them in our back garden when I was small, and I would look for the faces hidden in their petal design. :) And have you noticed, nature does not worry about colour blending in pansies? So neither did I! :D 

I stamped and embossed one large and two small pansy blooms, colouring each in purple and yellow (my preferred pansy variety) before die cutting them. From my white panel, I die cut three hexagons, using the Essential Hexagons from last month's release. I also cut them from gold cardstock, then fit everything together after stamping and embossing my sentiment. For a finishing touch, I sprinkled a few gold confetti sequins. 

To celebrate the new release, there is an Instagram hop with three $25 prizes up for grabs for commenters! If you are interested, start here to see all the beautiful creations! You have until tomorrow to comment for your chance to win.

Aww, your pansies are so very sweet, and how fun that you put them inside those cool hexagon dies.

I'm smitten with your pansies! My grandmother, who lived in Northern Alberta, had the greenest of thumbs when it came to gardens, both floral and vegetable. Her yard was full of vibrant blooms of all kinds - peonies, roses, asters - and, of course, an abundant sprinkling of pansies. My grandpa used to call them 'dog faces' and to this day, this is what I see when I look at them. I love pansies!
