More Darling Diamonds


Hello!  It's been a gorgeous weekend here, and we're just about to duck out to my son's soccer game, so I wanted to quickly share another card I made with Lil' Inker Designs' Darling Diamonds and the coordinating stitched pattern die.

I started by using the Circles & Diamonds Stitched Pattern die to impress the stitched pattern onto a piece of white cardstock.  Then I used MFT's 3 x 4 Insert die to cut a piece sized perfectly for my card.

Just a tip:  I think it's better to die cut before adding the stitched impression, as the process of die cutting smoothed out the cardstock and made the stitched detail less prominent.

I used several of the stamps from Darling Diamonds to create the pattern in red and aqua, a favorite color combo of mine.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White), Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy)
Stamps:  Lil' Inker Designs (Darling Diamonds)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Real Red, Pool Party, Chocolate Chip)
Tools:  Lil' Inker Designs (Circles & Diamonds Stitched Pattern die), My Favorite Things (Insert It--3 x 4 Insert die)


Enjoy your Sunday, and have a great start to your week!
