I started out by die cutting a bunch of diamond shapes, from the Photo Play Paper Crane Collection Pack, and the Tonic Tangerine die cutting machine, using the Mixed Edge Diamond Layering Basics Die Set. I cut a bunch of diamond shapes, then arranged them on a card base, and trimmed off all the pieces that went past the edge. After adhering them to the card base, I rolled on some Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen around one of the diamond shapes, and sprinkled on some Pink Fizz glitter. I also squeezed on some Nuvo Simply White crystal drops in the corner, and Copper Penny crystal drops at some of the intersections of the diamonds. I also die cut additional layers using the Mixed Edge Rectangle Layering Basics Die and layered these all together along with the card base.
I stamped out the sentiment, using my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I loaded up the stamp into the stamp platform, and then inked up part of the stamp with Panama Rose hybrid ink, and then Spring Heather, and then Polar Ice. I inked up just a few letters of each color, to have an effect of multiple colors for the whole stamp. Once I had the ink colors stamped, I cleaned off my stamp, inked it again with Versamark ink, and then stamped it again, over the colored ink. I sprinkled on Clear Detail embossing powder and heat set it. This made the ink colors shiny and sparkly! Then, I fussy cut the sentiment and cut a frame for it too. I layered these together, popped them up, and adhered them to the card base. I also squeezed on a few drops of White Blizzard crystal drops along the letters too.

I love this big bold thanks sentiment. I definitely can use it for tons of cards and look forward to all the fun and creative things I can do with it.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
