a bit of bling...

Happy Wednesday A Jillian Vance Design fans!!  Hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Easter!!  Rosemary here with a card I made using the Dazzling Diamond and Hoop It Up die sets and the Diamond in the Rough stamp set.  






When I set out to make this card I had a different idea in mind, but as I started making the card I decided to change up my idea and create a diamond ring.  The Hoop It Up die set was designed to help you frame up the faux cross-stitch images from the Home Sweet Home and Cross Stitch Love stamp sets.  But it also helps you create a beautiful diamond (or any other jewel for that matter!) ring.  I die cut the diamond from some silver glitter cardstock and then additional diamonds from scrap cardstock and then adhered them all together.  The ring and the prongs for the diamond were die cut from brushed gold cardstock.  A panel was die cut using a Polka Dot Rectangle backdrop die and then stamped with the sentiment using black ink.  I then adhered the ring to the panel, trimmed off the portions that hung over the edge and then adhered the diamond.  For a bit more interest I angled the panel when I adhered it to the card base.  This would be a great design for an engagement card, but since I don't own the AJVD With This Ring stamp set I used it in a bit different way.
