DeNami Product Spotlight: Onesie

Welcome to the DeNami Product Spotlight --- using the onesie stamp.
This stamp is 10% off for the next week == or you could win it! Simply leave a comment on every blog along the hop. Easy!

My card was inspired by Debbie - so I must give her total credit for my layout and color combination.  I loved how she punched 3 holes into the kraft cardstock.  I used a pencil to draw marks onto the white cardstock so I would know where to stamp the onesie, then I simply erased the marks.  Don't you love the upright congratulations stamp - so unique!  I stamped the gingham background onto the petal pink cardstock using versamark - its hard to see, but its there!

10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge #16

WOW! I didn't know Paulina was on her 16th Challenge!
I always love her challenges, just seems like time goes too quick and I don't get to participate as often as I'd like. 

I purchased this fun chevron print paper at Michaels last week.  My mom was here and we had a blast wandering around the aisles.  I got a whole multi pack of colors, so I'm sure you will see this again!  I use this hibiscus stamp often, hope you aren't sick of seeing it.  I added the Hello Friend sentiment and stapled it on with a purple staple.  It was a dash today -- I completed this is 5:22!

DeNami FANCY FAVORS April Blog Hop

Welcome to the April DeNami Blog Hop - FANCY FAVORS.
I must admit, I have zero "fun" food or chocolate in my house, so I had to compromise and I used fruit leather and a gift card.  They could easily be used for some yummy chocolate or other sinful treat!

 The 1st week of May is teacher appreciation week.  I always try to give the teachers a little something each day of the week to show our appreciation.  
I stamped For You in Red Ink and punched out with a scalloped circle punch.  I added the apple stamped in black in the center. Colored in with copics and put crystal lacquer on the top to make them look like shiny apples.
The bag on the left is holding 4 fruit leathers and is the 3 x 8 1/2 sized bag from DeNami.   I tied it at the top using 3/8 lime ribbon and tied the apple circle on using twine.
The one on the right has an I-tunes gift card and measures 3 3/8 x 4 3/4.  I folded the bag down and closed it with  a strip of washi tape.  The For you circle is popped up using foam tape.
Simple, yet thoughtful.
The next stop on the hop is to visit Pam.  I'm sure she has something fabulous for you to see.  Make sure to leave her a comment and every other blog along the way- - you could win a DeNami gift certificate!

DeNami Photo Tutorial - Pearl Pens

I shared a Photo Tutorial using --PEARL PENS-- on the DeNami Blog.  Here are two other projects I made using the pens.  It's similar to crystal lacquer, but it is colored and the pen has a very fine tip so you can make  polka dots like I did on the bookmark and card below.

DeNami Product Spotlight -- Elegant Oval Frame.
Lucky you - it's 10% of for one week!

I stamped the Elegant Oval frame onto white cardstock using black ink.  I colored in with a copic marker and added extra fine glitter with a quickie glue pen.  Foam taped onto some Washi Tape strips that I made using more white cardstock.  Dry embossed kraft cardstock layered onto white card base.  I added a happy birthday sentiment. Quick, easy, simple, and perfect to wish almost anyone a Happy Birthday!

DeNami Pin-Spired #5

I love pinterest. I also love the Pin-spired projects by the DeNami Design Team - check it out!

I loved the stack of pastel chalks tied with the pretty ribbon in the photo.  I used what I had on hand to recreate it -- Birthday candles tied with a pretty pastel ribbon.
I die cut a PTI tag with white cardstock.  I glued the candles onto a white scrap and then tied the ribbon around them and secured them onto the tag.  Added a bunch of bakers twine to the tag.  The Lavender card was stamped using the medium polka dot background.  I added the happy birthday sentiment in black.  Washi tape layered onto white cardstock and then pink.  
Thanks for stopping by today!
