Still loving the Glitter Ribbon

Today I have one more DeNami card using the new floral images.   Black, silver, and white... perfect combo for a wedding card.  I used the ultimate glue pad and silver glitter on the silver cardstock.  Black ink and extra fine glitter on the oval shape.  One silver rhinestone & silver glitter ribbon finishes it off.  For the background stamp I used the elegant floral blossom and the elegant floral arch stamp for the main image.

Elegant DeNami Floral Card

Yikes this is an awful picture... I think the card base is actually navy, but it sure looks like black.  Oh well, you can see the pretty stamped portions, sparkly ribbon and bling... that's what counts anyway-right?
I love the glitter ribbon that DeNami carries.... such a fun way to add texture and sparkle to your card.  I used the silver here.... along with some extra fine glitter and silver rhinestones.  No need for coloring, so this is a quickie.   Focal image is the Elegant Floral Circle, and the image on the white strip is the elegant floral blossom - both from DeNami Designs.

Put your sunglasses on... this one is bright!

I don't exactly know what kind of mood I was in when I created this card - but it is bright!  Turquoise, Purple, Tangerine Cardstock & Hot Pink ribbon - all from DeNami.  I absolutely adore these new floral stamps, I could probably use them on almost every card!  I added some Xtra fine glitter to accent the flowers, and then a touch of bling with rhinestones for the center. The focal image I used is the elegant floral circle.  The elegant floral vine is stamped in Versafine Purple along the side of the card base... just to add some texture.  I have a few more cards using these same stamps... I'll post them tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by, I feel like most of my blogging friends are at CHA.... yep, I'm a little jealous.

I must give credit to my daughter for this card. She just turned 6 a few weeks ago.  I let her stamp with me, and she made the card below.  I LOVE how she thought to stack the cheerleading chicks up into a pyramid.  I told her I thought it was such a good idea, and she looked at me like -duh? That is how they do it on tv.  Silly mom.

Birthday Wishes for Paulina

Today is my friend Paulina's Birthday.  Stop by her blog and wish her a Happy Birthday! She loves pink, so I had to make her a pink card... with polka dots too!  This card is inspired by Dawn's card on page 43 of the July/Aug. Paper Crafts magazine.  I finally received my Papertrey Ink Anniversary Set on July 1st, so I was excited to get it inked up. I've seen so many great samples with it, I waited patiently for it to arrive.

DeNami Color Challenge #3- Laurie

DeNami Color Challenge #3 - by Laurie.  This color challenge was a tough one for me.  For some reason I just have a hard time putting red and pink together.  I think my card finally turned out okay, but this was a challenge for sure!! I'm excited to see what other people can do with these colors, and make it look so easy!  $25 DeNami Gift Certificate is up for grabs... so get inky!  Notice the lady bug on the center of the bow?  That is a pink button with a ladybug circle.  Looks like a cute little brad.  One of my new "fads" is finding small stamps I can fit onto a button.

Stamps: Bitty Bugs, Grass out of the Easter Set, wavy stem trio.
Cardstock: Red, Lime, Strawberry Freeze, and Cream
Ink: Versafine Black, Lime
Misc: Red Buttons, Bubblegum Buttons, 5/8 Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Quickie Glue Pen, Extra Fine Glitter, Tombow Markers

2 Sketches 4 You #55 and Paper Dolls Challenge #11

I've missed participating in challenges this summer, so today I was able to make one card for two challenges. 2 Sketches for you - Laura's Sketch #55.  Paper Dolls Challenge #11  to make a card using a non-standard card size. This card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 Square.  I really like this color combo, so I was excited when Papertrey made this Beautiful Blooms paper. Used some die cuts and felt. Easy, fun card, no stamping on this one!
We have had our puppy now for 2 weeks. This photo was taken on my daughters 6th birthday.  10 Week old puppy - we named her Abby.  We love her to pieces!!
