The final set is called Diamonds, and here’s my first card:

Apologies for the quality of the photo – we’ve had nothing but rain for what seems like forever over the last few weeks. I stamped the Diamonds image first in white pigment ink onto a kraft card based and waited for it to dry, before offset stamping with three different Distress Inks. This creates a really cool background!

I filled in some of the clear diamonds with Silver Wink of Stella. The sentiment is from Neat & Tangled’s Sparkle and Shine set and was heat embossed in silver onto a co-ordinating strip of pink cardstock. The embellishments are wood veneer stars covered in silver and gold embossing powder. Here’s my second card:

For this one, I stamped the Diamonds in Versamark onto some pearlescent navy cardstock and brushed with Perfect Pearls in Perfect Gold and Perfect Pearl.

The sentiment is another Neat & Tangled favourite (Dreams) and works brilliantly heat embossed in black on gold/yellow cardstock. I fussy cut it out, foam mounted to the card base and sprinkled with some sequins.

    Beautiful cards. I like the shine you put on them. The stamping on card one is a great looking technique. I like the perfect pearls on card 2…so shimmery. Fabulous job. I will need to try both techniques.
