Sweet Photography & Triangle Play

Today I’m sharing another photography tip post over on the Sweet Stamp Shop blog, so be sure and bop over there to take a peek!  This week it’s about a couple camera settings that you might want to play with!  I’m having so much fun with these posts and I hope someone is learning a little something that will help them improve their card photos!

I used this card for the post:

Stamps:  Sweet Stamp Shop (Triangle Style, Austen Obsessed sentiment)

I had so much fun with the triangle set!  I had Valentine’s Day on my mind as you can see by the color and theme.  I simple inked each triangle with SU’s Melon Mambo ink (hot pink) and then dipped the three edges in a little big of Real Red to give a two-tone look.  I created a random pattern, stamped the sentiment and added three black gemstones.

I kept right on going with the triangles to create two more cards!

Stamps:  Sweet Stamp Shop (Triangle Style, Packaged Pretty sentiment)

I used the exact same technique, but popped up the sentiment over the middle of the heart.

Stamps:  Sweet Stamp shop (Triangle Style, Wheely Like You sentiment)

For this card, I used Bermuda Bay and Tempting Turquoise inks, fussy cut all of the triangles and popped them up with foam dots to create the heart.

After a week of arctic snow days, freezing rain, a respiratory bug, evening events and what I think might be a teething DD, I am hoping for a rather uneventful week.  I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed, anyway!

Have a marvelous Monday!
