CASology #103: Hexagonal Disco Ball Card

by May Park-

Happy Tuesday! Hope you had a wonderful start to a new week. I had a great one. I went to the Paint Nite with my friend and had so fun acrylic-painting. Now it’s time for a new challenge over at CASology. Here is this week’s cue card:

Screen Shot 2014-07-07 at 11.40.03 PMTo be honest, this was the hardest cue word ever since I joined on design team at CASology. I tried five different cards to make a glow party card using acrylic paints mixed with dish soap, but I didn’t like the way they turned out. Then I challenged myself to create a fun and bold disco ball using hexagon die. Without further ado, here is what I came up with:

Do you like dancing in a nightclub? or singing at the karaoke? I don’t go to those places, but I love dancing and singing. So it will be great for fun to have a disco ball in my future house. Does that sound cool to you? Haha! But I have to admit that those patterns on my disco ball remind me of a soccer ball. I should have added some string to achieve a realistic look of the disco ball. What do you think? Hope you see a disco ball not a soccer ball. *wink*

This is a closer look at my card. I love the shiny sparkles over the neon hexagons. Hope you like them, too. As you see above, I placed my sentiment along the ball to create some circular motion. For the sentiment, I used the Bowtiful Stamp Set by Waffle Flower. But I needed to cut the stamp to create my own sentiment which I didn’t mind at all.

This is a quick step-by-step photo tutorial on how I put together my disco ball card. 1)Die-cut hexagon frame from black cardstock using Papertrey Ink Hexagon Die. 2)Die cut hexagons out of white cardstock. Then ink them with neon colors. 3)Adhere the hexagon frame on a piece of black cardstock. Then adhere the hexagon diecuts in random order. 4)Heat-emboss the hexagon panel with Sparkle embossing powder. 5)Die-cut circle using My Favorite Things’ Circle Die-namics, cut edges of the hexagon circle. 6)Stamp sentiment and heat emboss it using Liquid Platinum embossing powder. Then adhere the hexagon panel to card using dimensional adhesive.

By the way, these are the main supplies I used to create my card: Cuttlebug die-cut machine was not pictured. That’s all for today. Make sure to stop by each of the DT’s blog for more inspiration! I hope you play along with us this week, there is a wonderful prize up for grabs from STAMPlorations and the winner will have a chance to guest design on the next challenge – more details are on the CASology blog. Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!

    This is so much fun! I think your sentiment removes any doubt that it’s a disco, not a soccer ball. 🙂

    This is so colorful and creative. I do admit that I first saw a soccer ball, but given that it is World Cup and I have 2 soccer players in my house, I can be forgiven. I love your tutorial and explanation, and now I see nothing but a disco ball, and I want to go dancing.
