Stamp Focus: Trigonometry

by Tasnim

Hello and good morning!

Tasnim here, and today I will be doing a close look at our newly released Trigonometry stamp set!

4x6 Trigonometry

Doesn't this set scream modern and trendy?! I just love all the different triangle patterns! The possibilities are endless!

I designed three clean and simple cards and I hope they will inspire you to create beautiful patterns.

Trigonometry card 1

In this card, I combined the stamp sets Trigonometry and Happy Bloom.

First I stamped the floral images on the card front using Mocha Crisp Ink, then layered the three triangles over them using glue and foam tape. The triangles were stamped in the following colors: Razzleberry, Blush, Warm Sunshine and Coral Bliss.

I didn't have the coordinating dies on hand, so I simply stamped them on white cardstock and trimmed with scissors.

In this card, I used some of my favorite inks! Oh, don't you just love those blues and mint colors?! It is a simple design and can be easily recreated.

The ink colors used were: Aqualicious, Dew Drops, Sea Breeze, Minty Mint, Sweet Leaf, and Warm Sunshine.

Trigonometry card 3

My third card was a bit of an adventure. I had to do it twice because the first one got too messy to fix. I used washi tape to mask off the white border around the card front. If I had to do this again, I wouldn't use washi tape, as the non-porous surface leaves ink residue from the images that were stamped off the edge, and it is bound to create ink smudges. Somehow I didn't learn my lesson the second time, and that explains the unplanned scattered sequins to cover up the ink smudges! I think it worked out for the best, though :)

Using a paper mask like a post-it may also help in getting a crisp edge, which I didn't get using washi tape.

I stamped the triangle in a variety of coral/pink colors leaving a thin white space in between. For the glitter areas, I masked off the surrounding triangles including the thin white edges, smoothed some liquid glue over the exposed surface, and added gold glitter.

The sentiment is from an older set, Dodecagram.

The specific ink colors used were: Rouge, Coral Bliss, Coral Berry, Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy and Dew Drops. The sentiment was stamped in Evening Gray.

I hope you found some inspiration here today.

Thank you very much for stopping by!

Brilliant designs Tasnim, don’t think I would have known what to do with this stamp set without seeing some examples first for inspiration. I love the first card where you have mixed the straight lines of the trigonometry stamp set and the soft edges of a floral stamp set. The next two designs are set off I think by the colours you chose. Love them Tasnim, thank you.

Debs February 11, 2018 - 09:17

Mathematically…you knocked it out of the homeroom…love your designs.

Mary MacFadyen February 11, 2018 - 12:46

I wouldn’t have thought this stamp set was for me. But your inventive cards have completely changed my mind. I especially like the turquoise one.

Jackie Price February 11, 2018 - 17:08

Wow, what beautiful cards!! So abstract and modern. Your colour combinations are perfect, as are the card designs.
