I mistakenly thought the SU Geometrical stamp set was retired until I saw the post at Stampin’ Up Only Challenges #103– Make it Geometrical. When I went to grab for it (for the first time) I noticed that it was not marked with a little circle on the case indicating to me a retired set. Yipee!- I figured if the stamp set was called “Geometrical” I should get some ink on it for the SUO #103 Challenge.
I saw the STRIKING colors Tangelo Twist and Tempting Turquoise at ColourMe #33 this week and went to work.
I stamped a bunch of triangles in the two ColourMe colors and punched them out with the Triangle Punch. I then laid them out on a piece of scotch tape and mounted them on Basic Black card stock. My intention was to grunge it up but I was just smitten with all the white space and left it clean. I wanted to add some little something to embellish it, and thought the patterns would go well with my new SU Four Feathers coming soon in the NEW Holiday Catalog! And again, so easy to cut with the coordinating framelits.
All my black SU buttons were either too big or looked goofy so I used a SU Vintage Faceted Button to ground my feathers. At first, I tied SU White baker’s twine in the button but it just faded in so I dyed my white baker’s twine with some of my Memento Tuxedo Black ink refiller. The black twine stood out, however, I noticed in the photo that the vintage button reflected some of the Tangelo Twist ink and looks a bit yellowed. In person, it looks so clean and clear complementing the white space nicely. A few black candy dots finished off the card.
I am trying to remember to decorate the inside of my cards even if it is just a wee bit. I did some quick masking and had a little color inside:
STAMPS: SU Geometrical, SU Four Feathers
INK: SU Tangelo Twist, SU Tempting Turquoise
PAPER: SU Basic Black, SU Whisper White, SU Tangelo Twist
ACCESSORIES: SU Vintage Faceted Button, SU White Baker’s Twine (dyed black), SU Black Candy Dots
TOOLS: SU Triangle Punch, SU Feathers Framelits
P.S. I must say until I made this card, I was not a fan of the font but now, I know it just fits!
