Hello … bonjour! Welcome to our latest Twofer Card Challenge! This month, we have a cool, stylish and fun prompt … it’s …
My common stamp here is the small triangle from Papertrey‘s Sketched Shapes … I love the interest that the scribbly pattern adds … and triangles are so versatile! How about a closer look at each card?
Here I created a random pattern of overlapping triangles on my one layer card, using four different blue hues, pointing down and up towards the oversized Simon Says Stamp greeting, which was nestled into them. The birthday sentiment and the random dots on the triangles (Simon Says Stamp Lots of Dots) were silver heat embossed … adds a bit of shine without being too much for a masculine card.
My Twofer …
Doesn’t that single triangle stamp make a cute cluster of Christmas trees? The bottom layer on each tree is the same triangle as on my first card. Thanks to a negative mask that I hand cut in the shape of the tree, I could stamp the layers (which diminish in size as the trees get taller) and the trunks … with the same triangle stamp. I used the positive part of the mask to protect the two front trees while the background one was stamped through the mask. The sentiment is from WPlus9, heat embossed in gold and the trees are dressed in gold foil stars and Santa red bling. There’s a smidge of shading under the trees, though it’s hard to see here. The finished panel was adhered to a card base that had been trimmed top and bottom with gold washi tape.
Voilà … my two distinctly different designs … for two distinctly different occasions … using the same stamp!
How will your imagination use our ‘Geometric’ prompt this month? Will you go conventional or unconventional … or both, as I did? We’d love to see what you create in our gallery. All the details you need to play along are over at the Twofer blog … along with plenty of delicious ideas from the DT to get those artistic juices flowing. We’re delighted to have two Guest Designers with us this time round … welcome to Cheryl from Paper Panacea and Brenda from Inkspired to Stamp, who also have some wonderful inspiration for you. Do pop over and see both Cheryl and Brenda … there’s so much to see and enjoy over on their blogs … and they’ll be delighted you called!
