DeNami Classic Christmas

Thanks to those of you on Facebook that wanted to see us use this pretty Classic Christmas Stamp Set!!  Paulina made some SUPER cute treat boxes... I love the pattern she stamped using this set.
 I stamped the pinecone in Versafine Sepia and the Evergreen Sprig and holly  leaves in Versafine Moss. The  holly berries looked "weird" stamped in the traditional red tones, so I changed it up and went with gold glitter.  This stuff A-MAZING in person!! I used the glue pad to stamp the berries and then sprinkled on the glitter.  SO pretty!  Merry Christmas Circle also stamped in Versafine Sepia.  Cardstock used: Kraft, Cream, Hunter, Chocolate, Irridescent Gold and Sage.

DeNami Halloween Blog Hop

Welcome to the DeNami HALLOWEEN Blog Hop!
I'm 1st on the list - so you should be arriving straight from the DeNami Blog. 

Okay, 1st off I must say this decorated tree is SO much cuter in my house... and not so cute in this photo. I had a VERY hard time capturing a photo in good light showing all of the little details. I apologize up front for the lack of an awesome photo.
I saw this Halloween tree on pinterest  and thought it would be fun to re-create one for my house.  I purchased the tree at Michaels for $10. You could easily spray paint limbs and stick into a fun container too!  

I gathered some Halloween stamps and my daughter and I stamped, punched, colored, and glittered some spooky images.  I used embroidery floss to hang them onto my tree.  
Stamps Used: ghost, 3 houses, bat,  Halloween stamp set, dotted circle.  The ghosts are stamped onto vellum so they look "real" and the others were stamped onto white and lime.   
Your next stop on the hop is to visit TENIA's BLOG.  Enjoy hopping along! Make sure to leave comments along the way -- you have a chance to win a $20 DeNami Gift Certificate!

DeNami Apple Basket Card

DeNami Facebook Fans voted on what stamp they wanted to see featured this week. They chose the apple basket stamp.   I'm lucky enough to get to show you a simple card using this apple basket.  Perfect stamp for a fall themed card.  It's still hot here in Vegas, so my card is more colorful and would even work for a teacher note, or just because.  
I stamped the apple basket and coordinating apple and leaf stamps in black ink.  Colored with copics, added some red rhinestones, and red twine.  I cut 3/4 of an inch off of the front of the card and lined the inside of the card with line green patterned paper.

Retro Sketches RS #32

Here is my card for Retro Sketches #32   

I've always loved this Cherry Blossom Garland stamp.  I've posted a few others you can see here and here.  Seems to be the perfect fall floral stamp.  I stamped it using Versafine Sepia, colored in with copics, added colored pearls and then finished it off with some gold glitter.    Thinking of you was embossed in gold. A few cardstock layers later and a bit of PTI ribbon and I was done.   
We are FINALLY cooling off here in Vegas.  It was in the 60's this morning, my kids put on hoodies to go to school.  Supposed to get up to 80's... perfect!!

DeNami Product Spotlight: Three Houses

I love how the design team used this Three houses Stamp so differently.  Make sure you visit the DeNami blog to see more Halloween cards, and even a few all occasion cards. 10% off for 1 week,

Who owns some of this gorgeous glitter ribbon?  I haven't used any in awhile, I'm actually out of black!   I decided to give the silver a try.  I stamped the three houses stamp in black and then added some purple using a marker.  I stamped the Halloween fence  in black and the three winter trees in smoky grey.  Happy Halloween stamped in Versafine Purple.  Amethyst Card Base,

10 minute craft dash: Challenge #4

Thanks Paulina and Ginny for this awesome challenge! I  was so excited to see these fun colors!!
10 Minute Craft Dash: Challenge #4. 

WPlusDesign Studio is the sponsor this week... so I figured this was a perfect time to ink up some of Dawn's gorgeous stamps.  I used Magical Moments & Backgrounds II. 
I used a card Maile made recently for my layout.  The 6th one down in this post. 
Total time start to finish 6 minutes and 10 seconds. 
Happy Birthday is a DeNami stamp, stamped slightly crooked, whoops.    I added some extra fine glitter to the peacock feathers.

CAS-UAL Friday: Toot your own horn

CAS-UAL Friday s CFC72: Toot your own horn.

I love this theme! Blog headers are a peek into our personalities... so this card shows a little bit of "Wendy".    

I used 2 DeNami stamps to creat the background. Medium Solid Filigree and  Solid Decorative Crest. I used some big green ribbon and  an embossed sentiment for my focal point. .  

DeNami Color Challenge #11: By Deanna

DeNami Color Challenge #11.  Isn't this an absolutely gorgeous fall color combo?  We haven't quite officially hit fall yet here in Vegas. Still in the 90's during the day.  Lots of flip flop wearing ... but don't be too jealous.... we have to pay the power bill for the AC to run!

I love using this autumn stamp set to create fun background papers.  Super easy to stamp in black ink and add some color using markers. Quick and easy!  I added in a few elegant floral leaf sprigs to fill in the empty space.  Happy Thanksgiving sentiment in Sepia Versafine ink onto Kraft cardstock. I added some big brown buttons and twine.  Mounted it all onto an orange die cut shape that I stamped using the basic borders set.  I roughed and inked up the edge of the cream cardstock and mounted it onto a green cardbase.

In case you need your chickie fix for the day ----
I found this older card --- works for the color challenge too!  
Hoping you are inspired by the colors -- join in on the fun!!
