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!
For 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!
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 hope that you enjoyed seeing 3 totally different cards created with one stamp set. As you can see, Dotted Diamonds is full of possibilities. I can’t wait to explore some more with this stamp. Thank you for stopping by!
