Shine Bright Like a Spellbinders Diamond :D


As soon as I got this Diamond Die from the Gems Spellbinders Shapeabilities set, I just knew I had to team it up with the 'Shine Bright' sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Let's Bokeh stamp set :D I think it works perfectly!! To give an extra special effect, I used Cosmic Shimmer Flake and Glitter glue to stamp the sentiment, and I cut the Gem from some double sided adhesive, then I gilded both elements with some Tonic Studios Gilding Flakes :D And to take of the excess flake, I used a piece of the Ranger Rub it Scrub it!! This stuff is amazing!! Wish I'd brought it sooner than I did lol :D

My first cards using the fabulous Distress Oxide Inks!!! I might have gotten 6 of them as an Easter prezzie from my Nannie :D :D :D I was intending to get 6 re-inkers and use them to make my own ink pads with the Ranger Stamp Pad Felt (as I'd gotten some cheap) but the stupid place I was trying to order them from was messing me around :( :( SO I got the actual ink pads from CraftStash instead!! (wish I'd done that in the first place, then I would have had them 6 weeks earlier!!) Never mind lol :D Anyway, back to the cards :D So I used three different colours of Distress Oxide to create the initial backgrounds, then I used my Lawn Fawn Ink Cubes (My Easter Prezzie from my Parents :D) in coordinating tones along with the Let's Bokeh Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn to give a Bokeh background :D

To complete my custom sentiment 'Shine Bright Like a Diamond' I used the Lawn Fawn Owen's ABC's and the Distress Oxides to give me the words 'Like A' and I punched the circles out using the Medium Sized Circle Palm Punch from Xcut :D I stamped the 'Shine Bright' sentiment, and attached the double sided adhesive die-cut then gilded them both as explained above :D I then added some Wink of Stella to the circular letters (and I was amazed the Distress Oxide didn't re-activate!!) Then I added some pre-made Nuvo Glitter Drops :D I didn't have enough of the colours I wanted ready, so I made them by placing them on a backing sheet from some double sided adhesive! And they're actually ready to place on the card after an hour, then I left them overnight to completely dry :D :D :D Hope you liked the cards!!
