10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge #7

Prize: $20 DeNami gift certificate 
Colors: Sky Blue, Navy Blue, Kraft 

Since Thanksgiving is in a few days, I'm onto the next holiday.  Christmas will be here before we know it! I stamped a Merry Christmas sentiment in Versafine Majestic Blue in the center of the Sky Blue Cardstock.  (I apologize that the saying is retired, I didn't realize it until I started to type up this post.) I stamped the berry vine stamp in Versafine Sepia around the saying.  This stamp is 10% off for one more day!  I used a light blue marker to fill in the leaves of the vine stamp, then used the quickie glue pen to fill in a bit, and dumped extra fine glitter over the card.  Added a bit of elegant bling.  Finished off with a navy blue 5/8 grosgrain bow.  I love these 10 minute craft dashes!  I must make a better effort to complete more of them.  A HUGE thanks to Paulina for hosting this challenge and letting me play along this week!

Time spent: 6 minutes and 24 seconds.

 Thanks to DeNami Design for sponsoring the Craft Dash this week.  You could win a $20 Gift Cert.!

DeNami Product Spotlight: Berry Vine

Product Spotlight: Berry Vine.
I know I say this every time ... but isn't this a gorgeous stamp!?

I stamped the Berry Vine stamp in Versafine Olympia Green onto Sage cardstock.  It is a gorgeous image alone, but it is even better all prettied up with some glitter.  I used gamma green and cranberry glitter with a quickie glue pen.   I die cut a cream piece of cardstock and added the Wishing you peace and joy this holiday season using Versafine Crimson Red Ink.   I used the quickie glue pen to trace around the outside of the die cut to add some gold glitter.  Layered onto a large square burgundy card and kraft layer.   I think it would be pretty to frame, and change out the sentiment for a photo.  Thanks for stopping by!

DeNami Thoughtful Thank You's Blog Hop

 Welcome to the November DeNami Blog Hop: Thoughtful Thank You's. 
You should be arriving from my friend Amy's blog, if not, visit the DeNami Blog to get back on track. 

I've never used washi tape... until today... and I'm loving it!!  DeNami has an amazing collection of it -- check it out!!
The washi tape I used: pink chevron, teal chevron, and black stripes directly onto a white card.  I added black 5/8 grosgrain ribbon.   Upright Thank You sentiment stamped in black onto the white card base.  I used a corner rounder on the upper right corner.  Literally, you could recreate this card in under 5 minutes, but it's perfect for a quick thank-you.

 Next stop on the hop is to visit the talented TAMMY.   Make sure to leave everyone a comment along the way... you have a chance to win a DeNami Gift Certificate.

DeNami Sketch Challenge #14 by Dana

Sketch Challenge #14 by Dana

I just couldn't put the yum yum sentiment where it should have been according to the sketch.  I didn't want to cover up the ice cream cone!  This seemed to work okay, so hopefully it's close enough.
I used the Ice Cream Stamp and stamped it a few times to make it a SUPER tall tower of ice cream.  Colored in with markers to coordinate with the pink and brown theme.  
Hope you get a chance to try out this fun sketch!!
OH, in case you haven't heard.  10% OFF EVERYTHING online at DeNami  ---for the month of November!!!!
Cardstock: White, Pink, Magenta, Kraft and Chocolate.

Merry Christmas.... DeNami Style

Facebook fans chose the Poinsettia Vine stamp -- so it made my job of creating a pretty Christmas card easy.  Isn't it a gorgeous image?   Poinsettia Vines is a new cling stamp set that was released this summer.  It is a set of two, but I only used the larger image. I stamped it using Versafine Olympia Green ink.  I intended on using Red Glitter for the poinsettia centers, but it took away from the detailed image.  SO, I emphasized the dots of the image using a quickie glue pen and gamma green glitter.  This glitter matches the sage cardstock perfectly!  Other cardstock used: Red, White, Hunter. 
I added the Merry Christmas sentiment in Versafine Red and the border stamp in Olympia Green to finish it off.   So, make sure you become a  DeNami Fan on facebook --- so you can choose what stamps we use in the future.  Happy Friday --- Have a great weekend!!
