Four (!) graphic triangle cards

Yes, you read that right! Today I have four cards for you! I think, that's a first!

I love geometric patterns and have many graphic stamps and embossing folders. So, of course, the current challenge over at Virginia's View really speaks to me and I wanted to play. The fairly new Pinterest Inspired Challenge features triangles so I pulled out a triangle embossing folder that I had never used.

Inked the EF in different Distress Inks, spritzed it, and "stamped" it on watercolor paper. Spritzed and stamped it again to get lighter colors. Then I made cards of my backgrounds. I thought the Design Teams could pick their favorite card from this collection.

And all together!
Which one is your favorite? Mine is card #4!

Stamps: Winnie & Walter (sentiments on cards 1 and 3), Altenew (sentiment on cards 2 and 4), Mama Elephant (Triangles on card 4)
Other: Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug)

  1. SUPER geometric cards Susanne. LOVE THEM xxx

  2. Susanne! These are fantastic ... each one so gorgeously geometric and graphic ... with a hint of softness in the colours and delicate washes! Couldn't choose a fave ... they're all awesome! Hugs, Anita :)

  3. Oh wow! These are fabulous! I love the triangle background you made. Great colour choice too. I think I like card #1 & #2 the best. :-)

  4. Yes please! Four more would be just fine! Fantastic cards, Susanne, and I predict a winner among them. I'm loving #2 especially; I think it's the bit of silver thread. But I like them all. You go girl!! Bev

  5. Oh WOW!! These are stunning!! I LOVE that you created FOUR cards for this!! Fantastic design!!

  6. Also ich kann keinen wirklichen Favoriten ausmachen, mir gefallen alle vier. Besonders toll Deine Farbwahl!!
    LG Gundi

  7. Hi Susanne - these are really lovely cards! I had to amend you link 'cos it was taking me to an older entry - no worries, all done! And I actually thought most folk would already have those Crazy Birds too - amazed at the response!

  11. Sehr schwer zu sagen welche schöner ist aber wenn ich wählen müßte, dann blieb ich gleich bei der ersten! Tolle Farben!!

  12. Wow, Susanne, a quartet of gorgeous geometric gems! You actually think the DT can choose just *one* favourite from this fabulous set? Not likely! As for me, I love....let's see...all of them! I see some fabulous gift sets on your horizon...
