At the Leadership conference we had a Stamping Party one night and we had some awesome presentations from the Stampin’ Up! staff.  Brandi shared with us about trends and one trend is Geometric patterns.  The new Kaleidoscope suite in the Occasions Catalog is right on trend.

geometric-hooray-1This was one of the cards we made in January’s Hands-on Stamping class.  What did I use on this card?

  • Geometrical stamp set
  • Triangle punch
  • Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
  • Kaleidoscope Designer Series paper
  • Banners Framelits dies
  • Basic Rhinestones
  • circle punch (right now I can’t remember which one and I’m not at home to check – either the 1/2″ or the bitty circle)

This card idea came from one I saw on Pinterest.  The stamp set and the punch come as a bundle or individually.


On the inside I added a strip of the Kaleidoscope designer paper.  Another option with this would have been to cut a strip off the front of the card and then the paper on the inside would show when the card is closed too.  I may just have to make another version like that.

Today has been a long day of walking and apartment hunting.  But it looks like a decision has been made.  Yeah!
