Simon Says Stamp Triangle Element

Hi stamping friends, welcome back.  Today I’m creating with another item from the new Simon Says Stamp Fresh Bloom Release – the Simon Says Stamp  Triangle Element Die.

I had a lot of fun with this angled die, there are so many things you can do with it.  Watercolor it, spritz it, ink blend it, die cut and stack it.  That all resulted in a ton of pieces for future cards.  Today I’m going to share the simple white die cut with inlays, because I had this awesome Distress Oxide background to put it on.

I decided with this cut, it would be fun to pop a few of the pieces back into the outline, (Inlaid technique) to add some “weight” to the image.

Tips & Tricks for the Simon Says Stamp Triangle Elements Card:

  • Start with a card front of white Hammermill card stock.  Blend Peacock Feathers and Broken China Distress Oxide over it using the Ranger Mini Blending Tools.
  • If you start from opposite corners and work in overlapping at the center you get a pretty angled blend.  I shared a Oxide Blending Video here.
  • Next, Distress Oxides are activated with water, so splatting some drops on, and then wick them up with a paper towel.  This removes some of the ink, giving it the “distressed” look.
  • Lay the  Stitched Rectangle Wafer Dies over the piece and die cut to create  a stitched edge frame.
  • Finally, attach it to a top folding A2 card base made from Hammermill card stock.

Adding the Elements:

  • Die cut the Triangle Element 3 times, stacking them and gluing them together before inserting a few of the pieces back in and attaching to the card front.
  • I’m currently in love with this Hero Arts Smile – Stamp & Cut set.  You get the large word as a die cut, and then a selection of smaller words to go with it.  You can stamp or emboss onto strips.  I die cut the big word from Simon Says Stamp black card stock , and embossed the smaller words in White on a black strip and then tucked a strip of the Silver Mirror card stock under it for some bling.
  • My final embellishment is a salting of silver sequins to match my Silver paper.

Stacking Dies and gluing them together also adds some dimension to this simple card.  For more card ideas from the Fresh Bloom Release, you can see my Filigree Bunny card here,  and the lovely Pretty Peony Background card here.
