Love Triangles

Stampin' Up!, Geometrical, Occasions CatalogEverything in me wanted to grab some flower stamps today.  It’s beautiful outside – and around 60 degrees.  It’s hard to believe last week this time everything was covered in snow and it was below freezing.

I wanted to do something different, though, and I was inspired by my friend Susan Horr.  She always makes the most beautiful cards, and she’s been doing a lot with borders and banners – so I decided to take some of her ideas and copy them a little.

I stamped the triangles for the border with a few of the Geometrical set triangle stamps, then punched them with the new triangle punch.  Susan’s borders are much straighter!  I was rushing, so some of my triangles are a little off.  (You can order the “Geometrical Bundle” wood or clear mount stamps and the punch and receive a 15% discount!)

The “love you” and “forever” stamps are from the Fabulous Phrases set.  I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to place the words where I wanted them on the Essentials Wooden Elements.  I stamped in Versamark, then embossed them with Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise embossing powder.

When I got my Leadership make & take packet, I fell in love with the Kaleidoscope  designer series paper.  It’s pretty in the Occasions catalog, but it’s even cuter in person.  I thought the triangles on this sheet would work well with my design.

This card was way out of my comfort zone.  Only one color – Bermuda Bay – is one I typically reach for.  Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry are not colors I gravitate to, but I love them on this card.  It’s warm and summery, and a little tropical!

Hope you have a beautiful day!  Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.
