Good Saturday morning! Heather excited to be here once again this morning to share some more fun projects with my Winnie and Walter stamps! Today I broke out the fun triangles from Scenery: It's a Wonderful Pennant and again made a variety of cards with the one main set - this time I made 3 completely different styles of cards!

First up, I went with a very clean and graphic card using the solid triangles. I used 3 different colors of My Favorite Things dye inks - so super juicy and perfect for inking up solid stamp images. The second triangle on each side of the large one was made by just partially inking up the large one - I needed something a little more in between the large and medium size, and that did the trick! Added a sentiment from The Big, the Bold, and the Happy heat embossed in white and a row of stitched sequins.

Next up, I decided to play with a watercolor effect. I stamped some of the pattern triangles in a random pattern on watercolor paper, also using MFT dye ink. Once I was happy with the arrangement, I just misted a few times with water, then dried it with a heat gun. Perfect watercolor - and so easy! Finished off with a sentiment from The Big, the Bold, and the You and a few clear sequins. 

And lastly, I started trying to think of things that were in a triangle shape. I thought of Christmas trees, and then all of a sudden I thought of making a teepee! This was fun to build - this time I used Hero Arts shadow inks. The solid triangle stamp for the background in pale yellow, the chevron over the top in a deeper yellow, the tiny outline in that same deep yellow but only partially inked for the top, then gray with the tiny solid for the door. And the sentiment? That *might* be a tiny sneaky peek of the new release coming next week (wink-wink)!

Feel free to swing by my blog, Houses Built of Cards for more pictures and details on each of these cards - as well as a chance throughout the month to win a $30 gift card to Winnie and Walter just for leaving a comment! Thanks so much Shay and Julie for giving me this fun opportunity!
