Video: Geometric Backgrounds with Sohcahtoa Stamp Set

by Laura

Hello! It's Laura here. Today I have a colorful, geometric project to share with you featuring one of my all-time favorite stamp sets by Altenew: Sohcahtoa Stamp Set.


I honestly never tire of this gorgeous stamp set. There are truly endless patterns that can be created with these triangle images.


I used several Altenew inks to create this colorful background. I highly recommend downloading and printing out the Altenew ink chart. It is an invaluable resource for referencing all of the colors.


I embossed a sentiment from the Celebrate stamp set. The clean, modern font paired perfectly with this design.


Here's a video to show you how I created this card. You can also watch it HERE.

So amazing. Quite like a modern art painting in a fancy museum. Love it!

I love this because I love colors. I also love this because you used my favorite color yellow in it. People should use more yellow in their cards, that’s what I say. I can see how you can use this in a lot of different ways. I’d love to have this stamp!
