Hey, crafty friends! Happy Thanksgiving to all of you celebrating today!

Now, how about a bit of inspiration with the new Diamond Botanical stamp set that you can earn free with a purchase of $175 or more this weekend?

The beautiful floral diamond frame in the Diamond Botanical stamp set fills up your card front and is stunning for a clean and simple design like the Jill Hawkins created here. She stamped the frame in Oreo ink and used Karin Brushmarkers to watercolor the florals and foliage that surround the diamond frame. She added a few splatters and the ‘thinking of you’ sentiment in the center of the frame and cut it out with a Petite Scallop Rectangle die to add it to her card base. A few Bits & Pieces – Clear Drip Drops add the perfect finishing touch!

I created this next card (Heather Nichols) and stamped the diamond frame from the Diamond Botanicals stamp set onto the 111 lb. Watercolor Cardstock (if you haven’t tried this new watercolor cardstock, it’s so nice!) using Versamark ink and embossed it in white. The flowers and foliage on the frame are colored with liquid watercolor and where the image is embossed, it resists the color. The background is painted with a wash on the using Toffee liquid watercolor and I stamped the ‘thinking of you’ sentiment in the middle of the diamond frame with Oreo ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by the TE Blog today and I hope that all of you have a wonderful holiday and have so much fun shopping the great sales! I have plans to get crafty this weekend, how about you? (There are a few new products on my desk waiting to get inky!) Keep watching the blog this weekend for reminders about the doorbusters happening, our Cyber Monday promotion, and then more crafty inspiration next week!
