My little crafting world....


Hi all

Winter wishes diamond pattern card

Hi all

Here is a simple card I made using the beautiful decorative diamond stamp. I love the shape and pattern, very stylish and Art Deco looking to me, but I wanted to use it in a different way.


So I inked up a piece of glossy paper using the OHS French Mint Spray ink, dabbing some away to leave some lighter areas of interest. Once dry I stamped the diamond using an Archival ink in a circular motion laying each side together, sometimes overlapping a little. Then I went around the square with a black marker pen, layered the card onto a complementary piece of coloured card from the Paper Mill, then onto a square white card blank. I then just stamped the lovely text and added a few gems - one in the center, and others elsewhere to tie it together.
