DeNami Product Spotlight BLOG HOP: Balloon Trio


DeNami Product Spotlight: Balloon Trio


I love stamps, but sometimes I have TOO many - I can't decide which ones to use! I love versatile stamps and this balloon trio is definitely one of them!  I chose to have the elephant hold them with his trunk to say Happy Birthday to a little guy.  Perfect for a young boy....or change up the colors and it's perfect for a girl.  I added crystal lacquer to the balloons so they look shiny.  I have THOUSANDS of Project Life cards so I used one to stamp the balloons and saying onto.  Maybe someday I will start using them for scrapbooks too!

DeNami JUNE Inspired by: Jennifer



June Inspired by.... Jennifer.
Her original card and post can be found on her blog.


Isn't Jennifer's card SUPER fun!? I was inspired by it by using the cute little giraffe stamp and the cloudy sky embossing folder.  I used the embossing folder to make a textured blue sky - nice and soft and perfect for a baby card.  I stamped the giraffe in black and colored in with copics.  I added a cute little congrats stamp too.  Tied a bit of twine around the edge and that was it.  Make sure you visit the DeNami Blog to see the other fun cards the design team made!

DeNami Product Spotlight: Congratulations Circle






DeNami Product Spotlight: Congratulations Circle


I stamped the congratulations circle in cherry pink impress ink. I stamped the hat from the graduation set into the center.  Colored in with copics. Patterned paper is from a big pack I picked up at Michaels last year. Sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh. I'm still trying to get the hang of sequins - I think they should be more spread out now that I look at this card... Oh Well!

DeNami Blog Hop: Bright Blossoms



You should be arriving here from Greta's Blog.  If not, start at the beginning of the hop by going to the DeNami Blog. 


I used the whimsical wreath stamp as my "Bright Blossom" for the hop.  I always try to use a stamp someone else might not use, so we can showcase LOTS of DeNami stamps!   The summer flower leaves set was stamped in green and colored in with a copic marker. I added some big buttons to the center and twine, that's it. Easy!

DeNami Product Spotlight: Diploma

Product Spotlight: Diploma



The Diploma stamp is a great one to have on hand. I seem to get a graduation announcement every year. I paired it with the Congratulations stamp.   I kept my card fairly simple because I know most graduates just want the money that is inside.  I know that's an awful assumption!  I tied a bit of twine around the diploma.

DeNami MAY Inspired by: Tina M


May Inspired by.... Tina M.
You can see her original post and entire card by visiting her blog. 


I kept my color scheme exactly like Tina's. Why mess with something that looks so good!  Black and White with a touch of grey.  I stamped the flower bloom across the white cardstock in black ink.  I colored the flower in with a grey marker and added some extra fine glitter to the center of the flowers. I used black and white gingham paper and twine to add more of the color combo to the card.  It's hard to see but I stamped the solid grass stamp in grey at the base of the flowers. The white cardstock layer was embossed using circle interlock folder.

DeNami May Blog Hop: Sky's the Limit!

Welcome to the May DeNami Blog Hop:  Sky's the Limit!
I'm first on the hop! If you get lost along the way you can always check the DeNami Blog for the list of participants.


As always, I feel the hardest part of making a card is choosing which stamps to use.  Sky's The Limit works for insects, balloons, birds, rainbows, clouds, hot air balloon, rockets, airplane, helicopter etc... I'm lucky enough to own all of those!  I narrowed it down to this pretty set of butterflies. Fancy Flutters is a cling set, all 5 of these stamps are included. I stamped them each on to cardstock vellum using versamark ink and white embossing powder. 
I layered the butterflies onto some older basics grey 6x6 patterned paper,. and added some PPP sequins
Make sure you leave her a comment, and on every blog you hop to.  You have a chance to win a DeNami gift card.
