Sweet Stamp Shop: Starts Here with Triangle Style

When Judy Marino from Judy's Card Corner asked if she could interview me for the Sweet Stamp Shop blog, I immediately said "yes"!  Judy is a lovely lady who always leaves the nicest comments. Her blog is a great one to view...she has a simple style, and she loves color!!  You'll have to check out the links to read the interview!

I've also been intrigued by stamps that I had seen by the Sweet Stamp Shop.  Among others, the set Easily Distracted is calling my name.  Do you remember the silly scene in the Disney movie where the dog keeps getting distracted by a squirrel?  For a year, my kids would suddenly look to the side, yell "Squirrel?!" and then stay completely still.  In fact, my son's 80-member 6th grade "men's" choir did it during a song and brought the house down.  Sweet Stamp Shop has an entire set that includes a sentiment that says "sorry, I'm easily distracted" and a variety of main words "Squirrel?!!", "Sale?!!", "Cupcake?!!", "Glitter?!!" and more.  I LOVE it!!!

I guess I shouldn't have told that entire story - because I don't have that set.......yet!  But I do have a fun set of words that includes fun graphic words like "totally" and "awesome" and I have a great triangle set! This first card uses the word set, Starts Here, arranged in a way to tell somebody they did an awesome job!

Totally Awesome

This card combines a couple of triangles from Triangle Style with another word from Starts Here.  This card was inspired by the mountains that I see to the west every day!  The day that I made this, it was crystal clear and I could see the layers of foothills to hills to smaller mountains to the snow-covered peaks - so I put two triangles together to create the look of these mountains.  The "epic" is for anybody who has reached a peak (literally or figuratively!)


I decided to make one more card because I really hadn't shown off the triangles.  Plus I realized that these three words could be arranged in a triangle shape!

Wow Amazing Awesome

(There are some little arrows in these sets too.  I love Maureen's card using these same sets plus the little arrows.  I love her random look although I'm sure it was carefully planned!!!)
