Creation Station Blog Hop


Welcome to our first Creation Station Blog Hop! I hope you get inspiration from each of the stops along this blog hop to incorporate into your own stamping and paper crafting! Join us twice a month for this fantastic blog hop. We'll be highlighting different stamp sets, accessories, or having a different theme; all designed to expand your creativity! For this first hop, our options were: 


1) Use the Geometrical Stamp Set -OR- Anything triangle related
2) Use Stippled Blossoms Stamp Set
3) Create something with the Tag a Bag Boxes

I decided to go with the first option - anything triangle related. Love this shape! And it is rather trendy right now too, don't ya' think? So I couldn't stop at just one idea...I have 3 to share with you today!


The first card I kept rather simple and used punched triangles as an 'embellishment' on the card. To obtain these triangles, I punched a couple 1" squares out of Raspberry Ripple card stock then cut each square in half, then each of those halves in half again. In the end, each square makes four triangles. I thought these triangles helped to draw your attention towards the focal point of the card. In a sense, triangles help to create motion.



This second idea is actually a 3" x 3" card. These little notes are fun and super easy to make. I used our Petite Pennants Builder punch to punch out several Basic Black triangles. I then adhered each one onto a strip of our luscious Raspberry Ripple card stock to mimic the zebra's stripes. I trimmed off the an excess triangles that were hanging off and voila! a super fun zebra border! Who knew triangles could be so fun!



The last idea I created I wanted to highlight triangles even more and make them the focal point. For this I once again used our Petite Pennants Builder punch and punched out several Whisper White triangles. I then carefully put them side by side touching each other and using our Summer Silhouettes stamp set, created a flower-filled field. I then put adhesive on the back of each triangle and adhered them onto a piece of Early Espresso card stock leaving a small space between each triangle. Doesn't it feel like you are looking out a window at this field of flowers? Too fun!  The flower and leaves at the top are from that same stamp set and I simply hand cut each one out to a fun embellishment for this card. 



I hope you enjoyed these three simple, but fun ways to highlight triangles. Who knew this basic shape was so talented? 


Depending on where you started on this blog hop, you can go back and revisit Kallan's creativity or you can hop along to see what wonderfulness Deborah has to share with us today! Happy Stamping!
