Hello Everybody!

We are so thrilled that you could join us here at Poppystamps today! Today I am sharing a bright and cheerful summery card that's full of fun and color! Take a look!

I love using the Diamond Background for so many projects, especially for spring and summer garden themes. It reminds me of a pretty garden trellis, and it's a beautiful backdrop for these tiny blooms and hummingbirds.

After cutting the Diamond background in a "base" lime green, I adhered it to my card base, then cut additional Diamonds in multiple colors. Originally I had planned on a more colorful background, but after seeing how my tiny flowers were shaping up, I decided to make all the diamond inserts white, to really make my flowers pop.

After gluing in all the diamonds, I added the Little Hummingbirds with tiny foam dots, then went to work on the Poinsettia Minis. I cut out all of the petals, curled them inwards with a ball burnisher, glued them all together, added them to my card, and finished them with tiny blue jewel centers.  It's not very hard work. but it is a little time-consuming, and it takes a delicate hand and some craft tweezers. The results are always eye-catching!

Thank you all so much for joining us today!
