The Gossip Column #2 Geometrics

Hello!  I have a card to share today that I made for The Gossip Column with Taheera Atchia over at Winnie & Walter.  This challenge is all about geometric shapes.  A little nerdy fact about me, I've always been fascinated with "shapes", and what you can do with them.  I remember when my kids were little we would play a game with their drawing board where I would draw a simple geometric shape and ask them to use their imagination and see what they could turn it into.  So this challenge was A LOT of fun for me, and if I had the time I'm sure I could spend hours coming up with different cards.

To design the hexagon shapes on my card I used the small squiggle triangle from Winnie & Walters Scenery: Rectangle & Triangle, stamping with a rainbow of colors.  This is a great triangle to use for this process because it's very forgiving, you really don't have to line things up "perfectly" to make a basic hexagon shape.  The word "hello" was cut using the In a Word: Hello Cutaway.  I actually used a sparkly black paper here, which you cannot see at all in my photo, but it looks very cool irl!

Be sure to take a look at this challenge over on the Winnie & Walter blog, it's loads of fun and there are great prizes to be won!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Looks like a winner to me! I love your clever design!

  2. Wow!! Super card Diane! I love the geometric pattern and the fun colors!

  3. Super clever when I read how you created your hexies and just plain great design overall. That bold black sentiment is fabulous. Both your stamping and the die cut have such movement in them.

  4. Love how you created these hexagons - I always enjoy seeing people stretch their stamps and this is a great example! Such fantastic movement in your card too! Thanks for spreading The Gossip on w&w's The Gossip Column!
