Pintrest Inspired....

I don't know about you but, I spend way to much time on Pintrest!  It's addictive, fun, inspirational, relaxing, and way cool.  But, as much time as I spend there, I go through long periods of time where I pin but don't act.  I want to become more intentional about trying all those things I pinned. 

So here on my blog I am going to try to use a sketch, a card inspiration, or tutorial I have pinned once a week.  The above is inspiration from this pin I have on my Card Inspiration board.

It's clean, simple, and I am in love with this card!  I bought the embossing folder a few months back knowing I had the triangle stamp.  But I had yet to use it.

I started with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 top folding card made with Recollections White Cardstock.  I then cut apiece of the same white cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4.  I ran that through my BigShot using my triangle embossing folder by Lifestyle Crafts.  I also cut out a banner using a Papertrey Ink banner die.  On that I stamped the sentiment by Unity Stamps in Stampin Up's Tangelo Twist.

I then stamped the triangles in tangelo twist, hello honey, and blackberry twist using a stamp I have had forever.  It is made by Just for Fun.  It is a block stamp and has a triangle on one side, a diamond, a rectangle, and a square on other sides.

I also added some Wink of Stella to each of the triangles to give some sparkle.

I am entering this in Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog # 151:  Anything Goes
