3 Different Card Styles with Dotted Diamonds Stamp Set

by Virginia Lu

Hello, friends! This is Virginia here. It gives me great pleasure to share a Stamp Focus post featuring the NEW “Dotted Diamonds”.

This large background stamp allows you to add glitzy details and fine design elements to your cards. You can emboss and stamp and apply it with many techniques. With my 3 examples, I am sure that you can think of many more ways to use the awesome “Dotted Diamonds”. Let’s get started!

Altenew-Dotted Diamonds-Virginia#3For my first card, I stamped Dotted Diamonds in Antique Gold Pigment Ink. The subtle gold sheen from the ink is perfect with this background stamp.  I then proceeded to stamp and die cut the flowers from Watercolor Blooms Stamps & Die Bundle.

The flowers and leaves were stamped in blue (Lapis Lazuli), pink (Cherry Blossom), orange (Golden Sunset) and green (Tropical Forest).  I also stamped the small branches in brown (Almond Butter) and filled up the images with smaller stamps. The sentiment from Ornamental Bliss is just the right font and style!

To add the extra shine, I applied Golden Trim Washi Tape at the bottom. For the card base, I used my favorite Parchment Cardstock.

I took a different approach with my 2nd card. The Dotted Diamonds was first stamped in Persian Blue. I then cut out the square within Dotted Diamonds and set it aside. For my focal point, I created a cluster of flowers with Vase Fillers Die Set.

This was made easy thanks to the Cherry Blossom & Green Meadow Gradient Cardstock Sets. Lastly, I use part of the “Framed Thanks Die” with Silver Glitter Tape and completed this card with some blue splatters (Ocean Waves) and Cool Summer Enamel Dots. I love how Dotted Diamonds elevates this fun and whimsical floral design.

My last card is an eye-catching one. I love doing the emboss resist technique. My first step was to clear-emboss (Crystal Clear Embossing Powder) the Dotted Diamonds. I then applied colors generously with the new Artists’ Watercolor 24 Pan Set.

To make the watercolor brighter and more prominent within the diamonds, I applied some Metallic Watercolors. Next, I stamped the Watercolor Halftone in Silver Lake and die cut an extra two pieces to create a chipboard-like focal point.

I stamped the sentiment from Watercolor Halftone and added them on top of the flowers. The gray enamel dots are just perfect for this.

Love all three cards highlighting the Dotted Diamond stamp set I especially like the first card with the gold stamping, the brightly colored flowers, and the thin gold washi tape. It is a very elegant card! Seeing 3 such different cards definitely shows the versatility of the stamp.

These cards are amazing. The 3rd card almost has 3D look to it. But I really like the first card the best. The soft background with the flowers is stunning. Every time I see the Dotted Diamond Background I want it more!
