Two Hooray's for today!

Hello ~ My card for today is exactly how I feel! In a few more hours I get to go see one of my all-time favourite bands - AFI! The last time I saw them was back in 2010 when they opened for Green Day, so it's been a while. I go to a lot of concerts, you'll figure that out!
Anyhoooo, I could go on about my love for this band for days... but I should talk about my card shares for a bit! They all feature the 'Geometrical' stamp set from the occasions catalogue. I made a banner with the triangle stamps and coordinating triangle punch. I chose to use the 'Kaleidoscope' designer series paper since it's so bright, and vibrant - they just make you happy! I added some fringe to the bottom - because let's face it the fringe scissors are so fabulous I don't need an excuse to use them!

My first card is very similar to the first, only with a slightly different banner and some added fringe. For this banner I stamped 3 of the triangle stamps from the set and punched them out - layering them over each other. I added some Silver Baker's Twine and frayed the edges to look more like tassels - I love the frayed look with this twine! I used the same sentiment, but opted for the ovals framelits this time. I added some Crushed Curry, Basic Grey and Bermuda Bay fringe.

My second card is actually the very first card I made when I first sat down with this stamp set and played. I started with a piece of Crushed Curry, which I embossed with the 'Arrows' Textured impressions embossing folder. I then stamped various triangles in Crushed Curry and Coastal Cabana, then I punched them out. I added a panel of Coastal Cabana for the center with the raised side of the embossed image, versus the debossed like the background piece. I then stamped the sentiment in Coastal Cabana and cut out with the 'Ovals collection framelits'. I added a fringed strip of Whisper White cardstock under the Coastal Cabana strip for some more interest. I like the look with Basic Black cardstock and with Whisper White - this set is so crisp and clean with the basic neutrals the fun geometric patterns really pop!!
