Trigonometry

Trigonometry

 

 

Good morning! The cold has gone and it’s warmer, but that does mean it’s rather wet! Hey ho! Can’t have everything. I’ve been playing with an older Altenew stamp set – Trigonometry – and I’ve got three cards to share with you.

 

I really like the clean, crisp look of this birthday card. I used a selection of pinks to stamp the different triangle images. I used Versamark for a few and embossed them with silver powder and finished by adding a few triangles in black. I used a die to cut out the panel and finished by adding a simple birthday greeting. I used my stamp positioner to make sure that the stamps were straight and lined up.

 

 

On the inside, I cut a piece of white card onto which I stamped two triangles in pink. I created the greeting by using words from the Striped Circle stamp set.

 

 

I was enjoying making cards and decided to make a masculine one too. This time I made a one-layer card. I used teals and greens and stamped the triangles in a diagonal down the front of the card. I finished by adding the birthday greeting – also from Altenew’s Trigonometry stamp set – at the bottom of the card.

 

 

I cut piece of white card for the inside. I stamped two of the triangles to make a diamond shape and added a greeting from Altenew’s New Me stamp set. I edged the panel with a dark grey marker and adhered it inside the card.

 

 

My next card is also one layer. This time, instead of using my stamp positioner, I stamped the triangles freehand. The stamps are so easy to line up. I started by stamping the bottom corner triangle and built up the pattern from there. The dotty triangles were made by stamping the bottom layer in pale pink (the stamps has holes) and then stamping the dotty triangle to fill the holes – mostly with brown ink, but one with bright pink ink. I added a fun birthday greeting using a stamp from Altenew’s Floral Sprig stamp set.

 

 

On the inside, I simply stamped the flowers from Floral Sprig.

 

 

That’s all from me today. Thanks for stopping by. Keep safe. See you next week.
