simon says stamp diamond pattern - create a pattern 1

Thanks, Simon, for sending me a Diamond Pattern background stamp from the new release, Friendly Frolic, to play with. My next idea was to see what I could come up with in terms of patterns by moving/rotating the stamp. I must admit the simplicity and large empty spaces of the stamp daunted me a bit.

So I played.

Move the stamp to connect the lines.
Stamp as is, then turn 45 degrees.
Stamp randomly and make confetti.
Picked a pattern and stamped it just to create a barely there BG for some pretty blooms. I used SSS Fog ink. Then I colored the die cut pieces and built the flower. Added the sentiments and fell in love with the result :)

I'm on a mini-vacation before vacation (lucky me) but I'll have a couple more creations for you next week if you stop by again.

Check out the Simon Says Stamp blog for all the products in this release and tons of inspiration too. Thanks for visiting.

I'm playing at:
SSS Wednesday - AG
Happy Little Stampers - AG with Dies
Always Fun Challenges - #68

WOW Maria I LOVE what you have done on this card. The background is so soft and subtle and those flowers - simply beautiful and in my favourite colour. Love the way you did your die cut and stamped sentiment. Thanks for sharing with us at ATSM this week.

I can see why you fell in love with this little beauty Maria! Your pretty flowers are magnificent and the two-toned die cut sentiment is the perfect finishing touch.
Thanks for sharing with us at ATSM.
