Sunday Stampers week 269 - Friday 9th August

Hello Friends,

Goodness twice in a day! I haven't managed to craft much these last few weeks, which meant a few weeks missing from my  favourite challenge - Sunday Stampers. For details hop over to Hels Sheridan's fabulous blog by clicking here.

This week Hels set the theme of using diamonds in our project - could be the sparkly type or the today in between running up and down to check on my poorly hen, Penny, I managed to make this little card.

I embossed some coredinations card using a Sissix folder - chosen for the little diamond shapes and then I sanded it to bring out the pattern. I stamped the diamond pattern (stamp by Crafty Individuals) on to white card using Peacock Feathers distress ink and then heat embossed with some embossing powder. I couldn't find my glittery clear one, so I mixed some tinsel green and denim to create a turquiose colour and add some sparkle. The tag was inked with peacock feathers and stamped with one of the Patchwork rubber stamps from Joanna Sheen. I chose flowers for some contrast and stamped them with a dark turquoise ink.

Finally using jade UTEE, I made a button and square using my melt pot. I made two holes in the circle to create the button and threaded some ribbon through and I punched a hole in the square, added some offcuts where I'd trimmed the coredinations card and turned it on its side to make a diamond.

So now I finally feel I'm back! Have a great weekend everyone!

Love and Hugs,
Carole X
