Try That Technique: Scored Diamonds

Are you keeping out of the wind today?  This lovely Fashion Lady diva, from I Brake for Stamps, is trying to cope with the spring wind.  I live in a city, right off the lake, so we get what is called “lake effect.”  This is when I miss the Annapolis Valley, in Nova Scotia (Canada) with very little wind.  I pine away for the city of Halifax, and all their crazy coloured houses.  I miss those steep roads that I fearlessly drove  with my stick shift car.  I miss Mahone Bay, a quaint village.  Oh heck, I just miss the Maritimes.  Now that I am done crying my eyes out getting side-tracked, let’s talk about my card.


This Scored Diamonds technique was developed by Pat Huntoon herself.  Thanks Pat, for another wonderful technique.


Each week Diana Enns and I challenge each other to using a technique from one of our previous issues. of the Technique Junkie Newsletter.  Scored Diamonds can be found in our April 2010 issue, and can also be found on our new Emboss or Die CD.  Know what I love about the crazy coloured houses in the Maritimes this CD?  All 79 embossing and cutting machine tutorials are in one place, which is perfect when I’m travelling or visiting a girlfriend.


To order your CD, click on the upper right of my side bar.  Costs include shipping, so that’s a great deal.  Another reason to purchase this CD.

Have a terrific Thursday.

I´vealways wanted to live near by the sea, but never has, but always lived in the middle of the country, even far from the sea LOL. That´s how it goes, when we fall in love with someone, who doesn´t live there, then we grls tend to go where they are, don´t we? he he he.
