Fun with octagons !

Hi there!

You may have notice that I love playing with geometric shapes 😉  ... continuing the play with octagons today ! Such a versatile little shape which can be transformed by layering and rotating. 

I used :

  • Silhouette cameo to cut all octagons (of course you can use dies too) as well as the sunshine sentiment (cut once in white and once in black)
  • Different shades of yellow/orange card stock
  • Hello sentiment from Altenew Dainty Swiss Dots stamp set
  • Versafine black ink
  • Foam tape for dimension

My card was inspired by a couple of challenges :

Time Out Challenges - Inspired by words challenge : I picked the word sunshine for my inspiration

Freshly Made Sketches - Sketch by Karren (thanks for this really inspiring sketch Karren !)

Happy Little Stampers - Anything goes with dies


Thanks for visiting me today !
