The sentiment is from Crafty Friends (shop Altenew, Simon Says Stamp) Love that one so much!

  The focal images are stamped with the new stamp Budding Thanks (Altenew, Simon Says Stamp). You can get the entire Best Bud and Budding Thanks bundle here.

 I used white Nuvo Droplets to add the white accent in each diamond.

I love the ease of using pattern paper. I utilize the pattern paper from New Day Card Kit (shop Altenew, Simon Says Stamp)

That diamond set really is versatile. Love it with the white embossing and those gorgeous buds. You're right, that 1st card looks just like an argyle sweater. It's amazing how many varied looks you got with this new stamp set.

Wonderful post, each card shows your talent -- yes, a man's sweater is a perfect description. I think my favorites are cards 2 and 3. My the white embossing powder is wonderful.
