Diamonds, Diamonds, Diamonds


Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I'm playing along with the brand new challenge #1 at Scrapy Land, and it's "anything goes" using dies that are sold in their store. I'm using the Crafty Cutts Diamonds #1 & 2 for this card. I love using up those random snippets of card stock or dsp and cutting diamonds for cards. I used a card base of crumb cake for this one, stamping an Art Impressions Chihuahua image and coloring with Copics. I added a sentiment from MFP, and randomly placed the diamonds just for fun. I decided to make a 2nd card....


This one is a white card base, and I added the Art Impressions Dachshund image to this one. I make cards like this for cards for hospitalized kids, and the embellishments are restricted due to choking hazards, so I added some negative die-cut card stock bits instead of sequins or gemstones. I used primary colors because the kiddos seem to enjoy those more.

I'm also sharing these cards over at the Snippets Playground #140. I'm sure Parsnip will enjoy these furry friends to play with :)

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

Love those brightly colored diamonds! I think you're right, kids do seem to prefer bold, basic colors.

So cute and fun. They are both great but my fave is the second. I like the idea of the second dog trotting over to see what the first is up to...like they really do!

Ha, ha - great cards Carol! Darling little dogs and the diamonds are a great touch!

Off to get Parsnip down from the tree he shot up before - scaredy cat/bear :)
