Hi Bloggers.

Today's card features a new Spellbinders Die Set called Lovin' Diamonds. This one really jumped out at me when I collected the new dies from Creative Expressions.

You get the gorgeous frame and a beautiful heart die in the set. Win, win!

So, I cut the frame out of Primrose Card. I cut a frame to go behind it out of Sky Blue Card using Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics B.

I embossed a piece of Milk Card using the Creative Expressions 5 3/4" x 7 1/2" Fantails Embossing Folder. I cut the heart from the Lovin' Diamonds Die Set out od Sky Blue Card. I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions All Occasions Stamp Set onto Milk Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using one of the dies in the Spellbinders Out on a Limb Die Set. I added a 3mm Cream Pearl to each corner.

I assembled the card as shown, piercing around the edges. Another easy peasy card!

Objective was achieved yesterday and all attendees left the premises totally hooked on stamping! Yay!

My next workshop at Creative Expressions is on Tuesday 17th March. This is the morning workshop with a really cool technique on the focal die cut -

This is the afternoon workshop featuring a bunch of Sue's new dies including her weaving dies -

For more details and to book, please contact Tracey on 01536 481778 during office hours.

There's still a couple of places left on my workshop this Saturday at Yardley Gobion. Email me at if you'd like to join in.

Phill Martin is back in Create & Craft again today at 8am and 1pm with his Decadent Collection. Hope you can tune in.

Thanks for stopping by.
