Hexagon happiness - Six Sided Sampler in review

I've just reinstalled Photoshop, so am back in my happy photo place, with lots of unblogged & new projects to share with you as time permits. Many cards are long given to their recipient, so bear with me if I'm a bit hazy on details.
Today I'm sharing a few hexagon projects using the Six Sided Sampler stamp set, which I think should have been called Happy Hexagons, as there's something I just LOVE about hexagons. This set was one of my 'must have nows' from the annual catty & not just because it has a matching punch (eeee!). Anyway, I digress, lets get to the looking...
First up, I made this card for my dear friend Kim's birthday back in October & it's my fave using this set so far. I like organic-random layout of the hexagons & the colours.
  
You can see how I've popped some of the hexagons & layered the sentiment under them in the pic below. Doesn't the birthday sentiment from Label Love work really well with hexagons too?
 I carried the hexagons onto the inside too. Here's a close-up shot. I think this could work as a simple card front too. Excuse the badly lit pic.
I also made a little gift bag to match the card.
 Card 2 was much quicker to make, but I really liked the layout. I used the same colours as the first card, but in different amounts. Doesn't it look different?
 Here's a close up of the detail.
Here's a final one I made for my amazing friend Sam. This card really doesn't do her justice, as it's quite simple, but I hope it conveyed in a small way how awesome I think she is.
So how's that? - 4 projects in one post. I hope you've enjoyed this little sample. Thanks for visiting & for hanging in there will my irregular posting. Until next time, sending you some inky wishes.
