Diamond Shapes & Enamel Dots

Hello again my dahlings

I've been a bit absent online lately.  Partly due to the usual excuse of "being busy" and also because in my spare time, I haven't sat down and made anything. I've been catching up on a backlog of TV series plus I've been reading and meditating. It all eats into crafting time.

However, last night I decided to relax with stamps, scissors and coloured card.

I dug out a sheet of red card and my Clearly Besotted Geometric Style Stamps. I tried a couple of other ink colours before settling on my default when it comes to red, black. It's design-wise, my comfort zone. Must try and make a red card with another colour combo next time.

The black enamel dots are Sprinkles by Doodlebug Design Inc and are absolutely gorgeous as an embellishment, I just love the sleekness of them and the perfect glossy sheen.

Right, well the weather is perfect for a day out. Blue skies and fluffy white clouds. I'm off on a little adventure. One of my Word for the Year trips. I'll hopefully come back with photos to share in the next post

Until then, have a great weekend

Great design, Paul - I bought a diamond stamp once, intending to do something similar, but it was compressed and has never stamped properly, unfortunately. I did alter another stamp, though and made a Serendipity card that way...x
