Hiding in the Hive

March 14, 2014 No Comments

I purchased some of the Shaker Frames last month to share with my Hostess Club members and had a few left.  I’ve been dying to make something with them but have repeatedly sidetracked myself the last few days with the Spiral Flower die.  I’m having way too much fun with it.

So when I got ready to create this morning, I knew three things.  First, I was using the Shaker Frames today.  Second, I was going to put some of the sequins from the Gold sequin trim in my shaker window.  And third, I was going to use Very Vanilla.  How’s that for a definite plan?

Hexagon Hive Window with Sequins

Here’s my window filled with sequins.  I used one of the Shaker Frames, opened one end (they’re round and the window isn’t) and trimmed it to fit.  That takes care of sealing the bottom and sides of the shaker.  There’s also a piece of Window Sheet to keep the sequins from escaping out the top of the hexagon.

So you know how I’ve been a little obsessed with the Spiral Flower Die?  Well, it sneaked in here.  The piece of Primrose Petals is the negative or waste part of the die cut.  I’ve got a stack of them here from all of my playing.  There’s an idea brewing for their use — I can feel it tickling my brain, like the name of something that’s on the tip of your tongue but you can’t quite remember.  In the meantime, I put one of these to use today.

 

I used the hexagons from the Hexagon Hive Thinlit, adding them as a layer over the filled hexagons.  There’s even one popped up on a Stampin’ Dimensional to add a little variation.

To finish, I sprinkled a few Basic Pearls across the card as little visual surprises.

 

 

 

 

 

So, that is what is hiding in my hive.  What do you do with your negatives from die cutting?  Leave me a comment.
