Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

Today, I'm joining in the April blog hop over at PaperTrey Ink.  The theme is 'Tilted' - design on an angle.  I made several cards, here is the first one...
I embossed some PTI white cardstock using PTI Hexagon Die, then cut some white cardstock with the die.  I stamped the cut hexagons using the stamp set Happy Hexagons and inks Enchanted Evening, Canyon Clay, Kraft, Ripe Avocado.  The stamped hexagons were glued onto the embossed panel creating the angled pattern.
The sentiment is stamped on a tab I cut using one of the PTI Half and Half Dies. I added a knotted ribbon to finish the card. 

Since I had the frame left of the hexagon pattern, I wondered if I could create the same stamped pattern with it using it as a stencil.
I taped the frame down to my scratch pad, so it wouldn't shift.
Stamped, applying some pressure 
to make sure the full image is transferred.
Here is how my experiment turned out.  A really quick card.

Card 1 Supplies -- 
Stamp Set:  PTI Happy Hexagons mini set
Inks: PTI Enchanted Evening, Canyon Clay, Kraft, Ripe Avacodo
Cardstock:  PTI White, Enchanted Evening, Kraft
Ribbon: Canyon Clay Saddle Stitch
My second card is a really simple one.  I used Just the Ticket and the coordinating ticket border die. 

Card 2 Supplies --
Stamp Set: PTI Just the Ticket
Inks: PTI Kraft and True Black
Cardstock: PTI Kraft, True Black and Smokey Shadow
Patterned Cardstock: MME Dilly Dally
Here is my third card design.  I used a couple PTI sets Funky Florals, which I think was a free set with purchase a few months ago, "Beautiful Blessings" and the Half and Half Die Collection die.
