You're a Diamond


Back with another quick post using my new (to me) Avery Elle Many Thanks stamp set:

I silver embossed the fab sentiment and covered the diamond in glossy accents and glitter.  I backed with silver glitter paper and stamped the diamond tone on tone for the background.  Given that the diamond is made up of triangles I will also link this up at the challenge at Addicted to CAS where the codeword is Geometric.
Whilst I had the set out on my desk I made this card:

This is such a versatile stamp set!  I used all of the different sized dots to create a random pattern on an angled panel and finished with one of the sentiments.  I used the first colour combo from the current challenge at Make the Day Special to create this card so will link up there - I like the blues and oranges!

That is all I have time for today.  I am exhausted after my first day back at work - is it the weekend yet?!

Thanks, as ever, for stopping by,
