MIM- Diamond Wallpaper Stamping


Hello! This week's MIM focuses on background building, one of my favorite things! I pulled out lots of sets for my card but started with the diamond background, Tin Types. I love how delicate this background is. I then pulled out 3 different tiny images that would fit inside those little diamonds. The flower is from Mini Blooms, the heart is from Love Lives Here and the little leaf image is from the now vaulted Borders and Corners Rectangles. My flowers are from Fancy Folk Art and then I layered some die cuts using the scallop heart border from the Shakers and Sprinkles kit and Tag Sale #10. Finally, my sentiment comes from the anniversary set, Round and Round. My enamel dots were handmade using a recent tutorial by Heather Nichols. I love being able to make them in whatever color I want. Stamping my background paper was a lot of fun and I love how it came out...will have to make more of it! Thanks for stopping by :)

Fabulous stamping and gorgeous card. If you hadn't said anything I would have thought it was patterned paper.

Gorgeous card! Tintypes is one of my faves. Would love to know where you found Heather's tutorial on the enamel dots. I did a search of her blog, but couldn't find it. Thanks!
