Ridiculously Awesome Triangles

There’s lots to love about the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and although I have been sharing lots with the Playful Alphabet Dies, I’m giving them a rest today and sharing a project I made with another favourite – Stitched Triangles Dies.

You get 19 dies in this set including 3 styles of layering triangles, a stitched bunting banner, triangle border die and triangle cluster – endless options for mixing & matching.

I’ve used the isosceles triangle dies to cover the whole card front for this card.

I chose three DSP patterns that I loved – a Bumblebee pattern from Flowers for Every Season, a Pretty Peacock pattern from Whale of a Time DSP and  Terracotta Tile pattern from the Ornate Garden DSP.  I also cut out some cardstock in colours that complemented the DSP – Bumblebee, Just Jade and Rococo Rose.

The triangles were laid out on a thick Whisper White card base and the excess trimmed around the edges.  I didn’t think too much about the colours & patterns other than to alternate DSP & cardstock.  On saying that, the “random” look sometimes feels like it takes more effort than a predictable pattern.

The sentiment is from a fabulous stamp set in the Annual Catalogue called Ridiculously Awesome.  It was designed by Million Dollar Sales Achiever Ronda Wade with hand drawn artwork by Sean Douglass (the husband of Stampin’ Up! CEO Sara Douglass).  I’m a big fan of white heat embossing on black cardstock against bright colours – such a fun way to finish a card!  This sentiment is from two of the stamps in the set to create the message I needed for a ridiculously awesome friend.

Hey there!

It’s a big hop today for CASEing the Catty #104 as we cruise around the South Pacific sharing projects inspired by the Petals & Paisleys section of the 2016 Holiday Catalogue.

Fair to say that this product suite is a popular one!!!

Guess what???

I don’t actually own any of the stamps or dies from this collection – oh my!!!

But, the beauty of CASEing the Catty is that you can choose what inspires you.

For me, it’s the wonderful colour combination of the Petals & Paisleys DSP.

I {LOVE} this DSP and have used it extensively for projects over the past couple of months.

So, I have used the main colours from the DSP, snippets of the DSP and taken some layout elements from the card on the right in the sample photo below…

I told you I was loving the early release of the Stitched Shapes Framelits!!!

This card was super easy to make.  Cut 12 x the smallest stitched square die (I did three of each colour/DSP).

When tiled together, they measure 3-5/8″ x 4-3/4″.  So, I laid them out on a mat (Very Vanilla) measuring 3-7/8″ x 5″ and then on a card front with a finished size of 4-1/8″ x 5-1/4″ (4-1/8″ x 10-1/2″ before folding in half).


To finish, I added copper washi from the Affectionately Yours set, Very Vanilla twine and a happy birthday sentiment borrow from Fairy Celebration.

The twine is thinner than in it’s original form – I just pulled out a segment from the thick piece!!!
