This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

I love this technique!

You know how sometimes you find something that you are so tickled with you just can't stop sharing about it. Well, this is one of those things for me. This might be something you already know how to do, but for those of you who don't, I am going to hook you up with a really great video at Tami White's Blog that show you how to make this. Ta-Da, Diamond Crimped Background!
Here is my card: (sorry about the blurring, this one is tough to photograph)



Supplies: Stampin' Up!'s "Blooming Beautiful" stamp set, SU's Very Vanilla and Close to Cocoa card stock, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Copic markers, crimper and Stampin' Up! Dimensionals.
Now... run over to Tami's and learn how to make this background!

Oh my gosh that is amazing and beautiful!! I'm off to check out how to do this-maybe I'll finally get my $$ worth out of my crimper.

Oh, I have never seen this before. That is interesting! Very pretty, so simple and you get such a different look and so much texture. I LOVE your card with the flower and bee, it's just beautiful!

That is so cool and your card is gorgeous!! I totally thought it was different pieces and was surprised to see how she folded it and did it that way. I'm going to have to go get a paper crimper!
