Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and managing to stay warm, as I write this blog the current snow flurry is settling in different places around the garden which seems so strange bearing in mind we were in T shirts in the garden on Friday and Saturday, it wasn't as warm on Sunday but we still managed to be out in the garden, today was freezing and it has snowed on and off all day.
So the best place to be was inside in the warm, I sat and played with different things in my craft room, after a couple of hours I hadn't created anything just a pile of bits, so I decided to use some of my pile of 'bits' with my new Phil Martin Diamond Dies (plus a phil Martin Rectangle for the back of the card).
I started by die cutting the Diamond dies in White and Gold Mirror card and layered the together, I placed the largest Diamond onto double height foam pads so that I had room to tuck all my flowers and foliage behind. I stamped all of the flowers abd leaves with Distress Oxides 'Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, Cracked Pistachio' and die cut them, I also added some gold die cuts and arranged them behind that large Diamond. I then die cut two sets of the sentiment and adhered them together so that it stood out more, I added a little Picked Raspberry around the edges.
I know its a different look but I quite like it, I hope you do too, I will say that not stamping feels strange though.
Stay wrapped up warm my lovelies,
Sending Love and hugs to all of you,
