Focus: Sohcahtoa


Today we are focusing on Sohcahtoa.

Name Origin: Sohcahtoa is an acronym to help remember the three most common trigonometry functions, sine cosine and tangent.

Creative Designs:

In this card I used the solid equilateral triangles to create a pattern. I must admit, the misalignment of the larger triangles bothered me at first, but I decided I liked the imperfection :)
Here I opted for a monochromatic color scheme and used both the solid and outline isosceles triangles to create a random pattern. The outline triangles were embossed in gold.
Another random patterned card. Here however, I used second and third generation stamping to create a different look.
Here I overlapped some of the striped and solid triangles. The white stripes did a dual job for me, they added an interesting element to the card, and covered up some ink smudges! This card is a mini size, it measure 4.5 x 3 inches.
This card from Jen is over the top gorgeous! She stamped the pattern on a white panel, then adhered thin strips of almost-black card stock to bring the pattern to life. What a cool texture! The panel was mounted on a black card base using foam tape.
Thanks for joining us here today! Happy stamping :)

gorgeous. I love these inspirational posts. I just received my shipping notice on the 3 Altnew sets I ordered so I’m thoroughly inspired to get stamping!

Love this set and great cards from the DT to show it off!
Teachers can use the right angled triangles in the set to show SOHCAHTO at work, legitimate expense!? :)
