You're A Gem Card

Hello!  How's your week going so far?  We are enjoying our first week of summer!  We have been keeping very busy!  I'm glad I had a minute to pop on this morning to share this card I made for Waffle Flower Crafts:

I used the Gemstone Stamp Set with some pretty new ink colors from the Winter Blend Ink Pad.  I stamped the gemstones on a diagonal using different colors as I worked my way up.  Once they were stamped out, I sprinkled some like-colored sequins into the same space and adhered them down.  I diecut a large circle from the Flower Circle Die Set and stamped the sentiment in black.  I figured out where I wanted to place it and then wadded up some white thread to put underneath it.  I adhered it all with foam adhesive for dimension.

To add even more dimension to this fun card, I added a diamond cut out of shiny silver cardstock with the 3-D Diamond Template Die.  I folded it up and adhered it together and then added it to my circle.  It's so pretty and shiny!  I added just a few more sequins to offset my sentiment.

I love the new ink colors from the Winter Blend Stamp Set!  They are so bold and pretty!  I can't wait to use them again!

Alright!  Now comes the rest of my day! :)  We are heading into DC to have lunch and walk through the National Art Museum.  After that we're going to our first Nationals game- it should be a fun day!

Thanks for stopping by here today!
