DeNami Product Spotlight: Graduation & BLOG HOP

Welcome to the DeNami Product Spotlight & Blog Hop!
We are featuring the Graduation Cling Set.

I used the graduation cap and decorative stamp from the Graduation Set.  I stamped the Congratulations Stamp in SU Lilac ink and the background stamp in Versafine Black.  I used DeNami White, Amethyst and Black Cardstock.  I added extra fine glitter to the decorative stamping using a quickie glue pen.

Welcome to the DeNami MAY Fresh Florals Blog Hop.  You should be hopping from Jennifer's Blog.  If not, feel free to start at the beginning by visiting the DeNami blog.  Make sure you leave a comment on EVERY Blog for a chance to win a DeNami Gift Certificate!

I struggled with the theme of this hop -I have too many Floral DeNami images that I love!!  Choosing one was nearly impossible.  I tried to pick one I thought not too many people would use.  I chose the rosebud trio stamped in grey onto white cardstock.  I colored the flowers in with copics and added crystal lacquer to the flower portion.  I roughed up the edge of a piece of green patterned paper and adhered it to the bottom portion of the card.  I tied some twine around the card to finish it off. 
Thanks for stopping by,
 your next stop along the hop is to visit Barbara.

DeNami Product Spotlight: Garden Bouquet

DeNami Product Spotlight: Garden Bouquet.
Remember - this stamp is 10% off  for one week!
Stop by the DeNami Blog to see how my fellow design team gals used this stamp!

I thought this was such a pretty stamp - I may as well stamp it multiple times to get an even bigger WOW!  I stamped the Garden Bouquet 3 times across the top, turned the card 180 and stamped it 3 more times. Easy!  Colored in with copic markers.  I added  an additional piece of white cardstock stamped with Mother to cover up the stems.

CARDS Blog Color Challenge

These gorgeous colors are for the CARDS Blog Color Challenge! 
DeNami is sponsoring the PRIZE -  go check out all of the details! 

You can't go wrong with this color combo!  I did seem to pick a more orange toned coral color, but hopefully it is close enough to the swatch above.
I wanted to use some of my new ribbon that I bought from Little Free Radical.   Thanks to Paulina I found this gorgeous ribbon at a great price and purchased it from an awesome seller that shipped it ASAP.
I stamped the garden bouquet stamp  onto white cardstock using Memento Ink.  I added the hello friend sentiment to a K & Company Adhesive note strip.  Embossed the PTI Hawaiian Shores cardstock using a SU embossing folder.  Added the ribbon, colored in with copics, 1 strip of PTI coral cardstock, thats it!

This card is also for the Retro Sketch #62.

DeNami Pin-spired

Denami Designs + Pinterest = Fabulous Inspiration!
You must see the projects my fellow design team members made -- they are super fun!

Somehow I managed to get the idea to use the flip flop border stamp instead of birds - I think it worked out okay! I love the sending you sunshine stamp, it works beautifully with so many DeNami images.  Since I live in Vegas, I really do have sunshine to send out on almost a daily basis!  I added the black stitched background by stamping a background image 3 times, from the basic borders set.   I used a yellow marker to add some color to the sentiment.  I also added rhinestones to each pair of flip flops.  I layered the white cardstock piece onto an orange card.
