Images from the new That's Acute Triangle Clear Stamps create a splashy background for a glittery black Crouching Cat.  Add the look of washi tape with a stamp from the Bold Christmas Greetings Clear Stamps,  and some glossy Honeycomb Square hexagons.   Hi everyone, Jean Okimoto here with more designs from the 2018 Holiday Happenings release.

It's a collection of traditional and contemporary, bold handwritten greetings and proper typewriter text.  There's something for everyone in this great release!

It's easy to see why we're excited about the very cool triangle clear stamps and coordinating dies.  There are so many ways to use them to add a fresh, contemporary look to holiday cards.

Cut white cardstock using the 3-¼" Studio Hexagon Layers die.  It's also a template for stamping the tall diamond and the smallest solid triangle.  Use the corners of the hexagon to align the diamonds stamped with Sunshine VersaFine Clair.  Heat-set the ink.

Use the midpoint of the sides to align the small triangle stamped with Verdant VersaFine Clair.  

Cut a 3-¾" hexagon of green cardstock.

Cut Crouching Cat from black glittered craft foam.  Leave the little paws in the die until you're ready to attach it.  Cut the big egg from the Clutch of Eggs set from bright orange cardstock.  Attach it behind the cat to create beady orange eyes - it's a perfect fit!

Attach orange duct tape to a scrap of lightweight cardstock and cut Honeycomb Square to create shiny-bright hexagon accents.

Stamp the diagonal lines - from the Bold Christmas Greetings set - on orange and black cardstock with Nocturne VersaFine Clair.  Trim them and tear the ends to create 3-½" and 5" accent strips.  

Attach the diecuts to a 4-½" x 6-¼" A-6 card of black cardstock.

How would you use these triangle stamps?  A forest of sleek Christmas trees, pennants or flags are just a few ideas.

Thanks for visiting...be crafty and enjoy your weekend!
