Hooray... When HEXAGONS meet TRIANGLES!!

 Hello ~ I hope that you're enjoying my hexagons shares so far... I've added some fabulous triangles into the mix. For today's share, I've teamed them up for some stamping and punching awesomeness (is that a word?! ... I'll just pretend it is).

Once again I found myself using the 'Geometrical' stamp set - let's face it, I'm hooked on it's fabulousness!! First off, I was playing around with all the stamps and started randomly stamping the hexagon stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I wasn't entirely sure what I was going to do with it, I was just playing with a variety of bright colours... I then thought how cool would it look to punch them out and layer them together..........

I layered them side-by-side onto a piece of Basic Black and cut to the size of the punched image and the width of the card approximately 1" x 4 1/4". The hexagons on the triangles just seem to pop off the page like one of those optical illusion paintings they had in the 1990's. To make this card even better I added some embossing with the 'arrows' textured impressions embossing folder (another of my loves)... I do have a lot, it's no secret - I'm upfront and honest with all of them!! hehehe ;)

I added some Gold Sequin trim pieces for a bit of shine! I hope you like my share and are feeling the six-sided and three-sided love thus far!

For this card I used the same pattern for the bottom, but for the top I envisioned a Kaleidoscope with all the colours layering on top of each other.
