DeNami CHRISTMAS Theme Challenge

It's October, but it's time to plan ahead for Christmas Cards.  The DeNami Blog is packed full of Christmas Creations... check it out!  Who know's what they are making this year?  I thought I would use an "all in one" stamp for my card.  This is one of my favorite Christmas images -Leafy Christmas Scene. I love how easy it is to ink 1 stamp, stamp, emboss, glitter, DONE!  You could easily change the color scheme to do a more traditional Christmas Colors.  Wouldn't it look gorgeous embossed in gold, maybe red/green or burgundy/hunter.  I used the quickie glue pen and some extra fine glitter to fill in the open leaves on the trees, and added some rhinestones to the top of each tree.  
Cardstock: Silver, Charcoal, Amythst

DeNami Feautred Product -CORNSTALKS

It's time for the featured product on the DeNami Blog.  The Cornstalk stamp is the chosen stamp.  Make sure you visit the DeNami Blog and see the variety of projects the Design Team made using this 1 stamp.   I stamped the Cornstalk across the cream paper, and a few more times onto some scrap paper.  I cut a few cornstalks out to add dimension.  The little turkey is stamped, cut out, and I put foam tape to give him some pop.  The yellow Citrone glitter is a perfect accent for the cornstalks and turkey.  I love the brown glitter ribbon, perfect way to bling up a traditional Thanksgiving card.

DeNami Supplies:
Stamps: Cornstalks, Turkey, Happy Thanksgiving
Cardstock: Cream, Kraft, Chocolate,
Ink: Versafine Sepia
Misc: Brown Glitter Ribbon, Orange Rhinestones, Tombo Markers, Foam Tape

2 Sketches 4 You OTWC #28 Challenge

 It's been a few weeks since I've participated in a 2 Sketches 4 You sketch - so I made it a priority to make time today.  I used Kazan's Sketch #63 with the colors from Off The Wall Craftiness #28.  Somehow the sweet little DeNami Turkey made it onto this card too... just can't get enough of him!   He fits perfectly inside of the Give Thanks Circle Stamp.  The Citrone glitter looks so cute on his feathery wings... love it!

OTWC Challenge #27

Off The Wall Challenge #27 --- Blue, Cream, Chocolate.  How gorgeous are these colors together?  Seems simple, but sure makes a statement!  I had the pleasure of teaching at Papertrix in Nashville, TN this past weekend. Cindy & Wayne are wonderful store owners and friends.  Cindy knew I liked this cute little bicycle stamp from Great Impressions, so she was kind enough to send me home with one.  I paired it with WPlus9 Background II Set.  The image reminds me of a tread mark of a bike/car - so I thought it worked perfectly. I've been hoarding this gorgeous Chocolate ribbon from SU for a few years... so pretty. Rhinestones to add a bit of bling.

Wee Memories Tutti Frutti Challenge

I couldn't resists participating in the Wee Memories Challenge this week - Tutti Frutti Challenge.  DeNami has a big selection of fruit stamps, so I narrowed it down to the: apple basket stamp & apple and pear set for this card.  I added some pretty Red DeNami buttons and twine, and 5/8 emerald grosgrain ribbon.  Perfect fall card for anyone.... especially those hard working teachers in our lives!!

DeNami Ribbon Challenge

Such a fun Challenge at the DeNami Blog --- Ribbon!  I love ribbon, but I wanted to use it in a different way than I normally do..... so I came up with this fun ribbon tree.  I used my handy ATG gun to create a tall triangle shape and just started piling and twisting on the ribbon --- Paulina has an awesome video on her blog using the same technique.  Check it out if you need some instruction.   I kept the remainder of the card fairly simple: red buttons, Gold Glittered Star, and tiny glittered stars in the background.   Thanks for stopping by --- make sure you visit the DeNami Blog for more inspiration from the DeNami DT and participate in the challenge.  You have until Oct. 15th to create a project with ribbon.
