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.
