Diamond & Gems Light Up Card ft. Winnie & Walter + Chibitronics


Hi everyone! Welcome to Winnie & Walter and Chibitronics' collaborative blog hop! I'm super excited to share this colorful light up card with you; I decided to use the diamonds and gems from the My Precious set and really let them shine. I've also got a step by step video tutorial linked below if you are interested in how I created this card.





I ended up using two different sets of circle dies to die cut the images after I stamped and heat embossed them. Here are the sizes I used (with approximate diameter measurements of the die cut circles so you can use other circle dies you may have):

Heart Gem Circle: 4th smallest die (2 3/8'') from Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Circles Dies

Diamond Circle and Yellow Hexagon Gem Circle: 3rd smallest die (1 5/8'') from Spellbinders Nestabilities Small Circles Dies

Tear Drop Gem Circle: 2nd smallest die (1 3/8'') from Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Circles Dies

Red Octagon Gem Circle: 2nd smallest die (1 3/16'') from Spellbinders Nestabilities Small Circles Dies


You can watch the entire ink blending process in my video, but here's a quick reference photo of all of the distress inks I used. (The ones in grey mean I only used them sparingly. You can probably substitute with other colors.)


Here is a complete list of the colors I used to watercolor the gems and the circles. I really enjoyed the coloring process and I hope you find it relaxing to watch, too.
