Nothing’s Better Than The Right Triangle for The Spot #119. I think my headings are getting worse! How much cornier do you think I can get them? I am guessing you have worked out that this is my post for The Spot Weekly Challenge. You many also have worked out that I am using Nothing’s Better Than and The Right Triangle? Although, technically I am not using Nothing’s Better Than, I am using the Love You More Than dies.
The Spot Colour Challenge
As soon as I saw this colour combination I knew I wanted the Magenta Madness and Pool Party to be just a ‘pop’ of colour with the Basic Black and Gold taking up the majority of the card. The first question I had to ask myself was just how I was going to achieve the gold on black. Then I remembered the large striped triangle in The Right Triangle stamp set (which I seem to be obsessed by at the moment).
As you can see from the pictures, I went for the striped triangle in the top left and bottom right corners with the floral and leafed triangles in a band between them. The Stamparatus was my friend for all of the stamping. Lining the triangles up manually when I wanted them so close would have been possible, but not easy. I used Versamark and Gold Stampin’ Emboss powder to get the gloss gold look I was after.
For the ‘pop’ of Magenta Madness and Pool Party I decided to layer the Black and Gold on mats, but I gutted these before I adhered everything. I used the centres of the mats to die cut the ‘Love’ and ‘You’ from the Love You More Than die. Adding some Adhesive Sheet to the card before die cutting made layering the words and adhering them to the Black and Gold super easy.
To make sure the die cuts stuck to each other and the Black and Gold well, after I lay them down I ran them through my die cutter. This gives just enough pressure to adhere them well without squashing them too much. You may be able to see that, after adding the mats, I popped the piece up on Black Dimensionals for some added interest.
The final touch was to add a mat on the inside to allow for writing your greeting. I added some stamping to the bottom with Magenta Madness. The dash stamp in The Right Triangle stamp set is perfect for that finishing touch. I hope you can see that in the picture above.
