More Joy Fold Cards.....Diamond and Octagon version

I am having so much fun digging around in my papers to create these cards. I have used my Octagon Spellbinder Nestabilities for this card. The stamp I received from my secret santa at Christmas time and the first time I have tried it out. A pretty image isn't it. I have coloured it with my watercolour pencils. The flowered background paper is again from a magazine. I have matched it with a lovely plain blue paper in my collection which I have run through my cuttlebug using my 'Bloom Dots' embossing folder.

This time I just placed the small square card on an angle so it took on a diamond shape. I have used Kaisercraft 'Fun in the Sun' paper. A cute cupcake image from Stacie over at All Things Crafty. I have coloured it with my watercolour pencils and added a touch of glitter to the icing. Finished the circle with some leftover circle from my silver greeting sticker sheet.

You can't really see but the one side of the yellow card has been embossed with Swiss Dots. For the flower card I have used Bazzill Bling on the inside of the small card.


  1. You seem to have a gift of putting paper together really well. And so quickly! I take all day just to muddle through making four cards! I'm indecisive I think in paper selecting! lol

  2. You've certainly got the art of joy fold cards down to perfection,I should give it a try.I love the stamp on the octagon card it looks very much like an Egyptian design.I've been looking for a stamp which is no longer made called Nile Lotus.If I'm lucky I might find one on E-bay.
    Have a good weekend.
