Product Spotlight: Cornucopia.  This stamp is 10% for 1 week! 

I used the cornucopia as my focal point, and stamped a matching background using some smaller coordinating stamps.  Kind of a busy card for me, but I guess that's what I was feeling like that day!   I do enjoy combining different stamps and making unique patterns, I even had some fun coloring too!   In case this one is too crazy for you...  there are 2 cards below that I made this summer for the sneak peaks on the DeNami blog.  A bit more simple looking.  Thanks for stopping by, and make sure you visit the DeNami Blog for more inspiration using this cornucopia stamp!

Stamps: Cornucopia, Steam Curl, Demi Double Circle, Grapes, Apples & Pears Set, Elegant Floral Leaf Sprig.
Ink: Versafine Sepia,  Toffee, Crimson Red.
Cardstock: Cream, Chocolate, Sage.
Misc: Yellow Ribbon, Ivory/Gold Ribbon, Tombow Markers.

DeNami Product Spotlight: Wheat Stalks

It's time for another fun Product Spotlight at the DeNami Blog.  I am seriously impressed at how my fellow DT girls used this little stamp in such a BIG way! Very versatile... and it's 10% off for one week.

What stalks just seem so perfect for a fall or thanksgiving day card.  I stuck with the standard fall colors on this one and added some fun bling with the glitter ribbon and rhinestones.  This could be used anytime in October or November to thank someone in your life.  Don't you just love that chocolate glitter ribbon? It's my favorite color of glitter ribbon.... for sure!

Cardstock: Kraft, Cream, Irridescent Gold.
Stamps: Wheat Stalks and Thankful for you.
Ink: Versafine Toffee and Versafine Sepia
Misc: Brown Glitter Ribbon and Rhinestones.

DeNami FALL Bloghop

Welcome to the DeNami Fall Blog Hop. What a perfect way to start off the month!
You should be arriving from Tenia's Blog.  If not, you can start at the beginning of the hop.

DeNami has such a fun collection of Halloween, Thanksgiving, and General Fall stamps.  As usual, the hardest part for me is choosing what stamps to use.  I decided on the new Thanksgiving Chickies.   They make such a fun little fall scene.  I also love the sentiment, perfect for anytime of the year - Thankful for you. Are you shocked? Yep, I used my sewing machine.  I don't do it very often, now I remember why.  I always seem to have some sort of mishap!

Now it's time to visit SUZANNE she is the next one on the hop.

Stamps: Thanksgiving Chickies, Thankful for you, Wheat Stalks.
Cardstock: Kraft, Cream, Iridescent Gold, Chocolate.
Ink: Versafine Black and Versafine Sepia.

DeNami Color Challenge #8

 Color Challenge time at the DeNami Blog.
You have until Oct. 24th to participate. Use the colors in the swatch, along with 1 DeNami stamp. Link your creation up on the DeNami Blog and you will have a chance to win a $20 DeNami Gift Certificate!! 

This color combo was fairly challenging for me.  I love making fall cards, so that helped a bit. I inked up about 2/3 of the polka dot background stamp and stamped on the lime cardstock.   4 little squares were a perfect match for this cute little Thanksgiving set.  Colored them real quick (had to get grey in there somehow!) added a bow... done. Perfect little card for anyone.  

Stamps: Thanksgiving Chicks Stamp Set, Polka Dot Background
Cardstock: Cream, Lime, Chocolate,
Ink: Versafine Sepia
Misc. 3/8 Orange Ribbon, Scalloped Square Nesties.
