Only one more sleep to launch day

After a little housework this morning we had some friends come round for coffee and a catch up so I'm a bit late posting today's sneak peek. Just one more sleep and then you will be able to order the gorgeous new SWALK and Humphrey stamps.

I wanted to make one of these diamond cards after I saw one on Create and Craft using a template. I couldn't find a tutorial so worked out how to make one. I've set up a tutorial page so if you want to know the measurements check out my page. I've also added tutorials for a joyfold card and a circular easel card. If you find them helpful please leave me a comment here.

I've used papers from the SWALK 2 CD and one of the new SWALK stamp sets called Deserve a Treat. I used a Nestie for the sentiment and then stuck it behind the diamond. I used distress ink and WOW glitter embossing powder on the edges of the image. Punched flowers and pearls to finish.

I would like to enter this into the challenge of food and drink at Card Makin Mamas and Happy Birthday at Dutch Dare.

I had a lovely surprise today as I won 4 digis at
and some gorgeous Wild Orchid flowers at

Both wins were with my teddy bear card which I got into both challenges with about an hour to spare.
Don't forget my candy which is in the post at the top of my blog.
