  •  This colorful card was fun and fast to make. It was made with the new Stephanie Barnard, Slimline Stamps of Life Card Die Set and Kingston Crafts cardstock.

I've become very fond of Diamond Press dies in the past couple of years.  These cards were made totally with dies and no stamping.  This type of card goes together quickly.  Diamond Press has many sets that include enough dies to complete cards without any stamping needed...even the sentiments.  It is a plus to have all the elements included in one set. 


A very simple card that I have in mind to send to a very dear friend with a long letter inside.  The simplicity made this a lot of fun to make.  There were only two dies to cut.

I decided to backfill the leaves for some added interest.

Sometimes you run across a great idea while working.  I put a chunk of styrofoam in the bottom of this little jelly jar and then put all my super sharp tools in it.  This serves two purposes, it keeps the points  and my fingers safe and my tools are easier to find since I'm not laying them on the desk and piling papers and things on top of them.

Diamond Press Cozy Cottage stamp and die set is featured in this card.  This set is so easy to work with.  The designer did a wonderful job of combining the small pieces into one die. It also prevents lost dies. 

I tried a few with craft cardstock.  I really enjoy working with it.

The little flowers are made using a die from the Nesting Sentiments set by Diamond Press.

The teal color card stock mixes well with the craft cardstock color.

The background die with the scallops and little holes is from Lawn Fawn.  Absolutely one of my favorite go to dies.
