CC&S #121: Triangles (Sketch)

I must admit that Louise's sketch for CAS Colours and Sketches this week had me a bit stumped and I pondered over what to do for ages. Then I looked at the negative rather than the positive image, turned the sketch through 45 degrees and thought I could do something with the cross shape. I might still give that a go but then remembered I had some triangular-shaped corner stamps so set to work with those instead.

I thought that might be the easier option but trying to get them all lined up without the help of a gadget was trickier than I had remembered! I inked the stamps with two shades of ink and made a thank you card in pink and purple for Paul and Gel whose daughter, Emily, I made the baptism card for last week.

The design was mat and layered onto a piece of the same white cardstock coloured at the edges with the same pink inkpad to match. The card was finished with a few white adhesive pearls and a sentiment printed directly onto the card from the computer.

Supplies used:
Stamp: Corner stamp (Clarity) - sorry don't know the name of it!
Inkpads: Rose Bud & Lilac Posies (Memento)
Snippets: White linen cardstock, White adhesive pearls

No other link ups, just a classic card from me this week. Can't wait to see what you all do with your triangles!

  1. Great idea to use a corner stamp. This sketch had me stumped for a while too so I was looking forward to seeing what the DT came up with.

  2. Your card is lovely - simple, feminine elegance here! Super job, Stef! (If it makes you feel better, I had a hard time with the sketch, too.)
