Product Spotlight: Leafy Squares

Product Spotlight: Leafy Squares 

I used the smaller of the two leafy square stamps with versamark to create a gold embossed background for my wedding card.
I love sequins, but I'm a bit intimidated by them!  I don't know how to use them in a "cool" way! I tried to use them on this card, not sure about it though!

DeNami Product Spotlight: Turkey

DeNami Product Spotlight: Turkey
10% Off for one week only!

Who remembers Magic Mesh?  I've had it in my craft stash for years!! It made the perfect backdrop for my cute little turkeys.  I stamped the turkey 3 times onto cream cardstock.  Colored with copics, cut out, and foam taped on top of the cornstalks I stamped and colored.  I used the circle interlock embossing folder on the brown cardstock.... isn't it pretty?  Quick and simple, perfect fall card for anyone.

Muse Challenge #43 Snowflakes

This is the pretty inspiration  card this week at the Muse Challenge.  

I was instantly inspired to stamp and emboss in white onto purple cardstock.  That is exactly what I did!  I grabbed a bunch of pretty DeNami Snowflake stamps and stamped them in versamark and embossed in white.  I added rhinestones to the centers and used my finger to dab some white ink around the snowflakes.  PTI die and accent stamp and then the Merry Christmas stamped in Versafine Grey. Matted a few times with some cardstock to look like the original card.  SO simple, I love it when my idea turns out as planned. 

10 Minute Crash Dash #29

Paulina at Pretty Pink Posh has totally revamped her blog  - its FAB!  I can't wait to see what she has planned for her new store!  She has a fun new Challenge - to use buttons on a project and keep it under 10 minutes. I found a few extra minutes to play along today.  

I wanted to use buttons on this card, but the more I messed with it the more I hated the multiple buttons. SO, this card has 1 single lonely button.  I stamped Holiday Cheer in versamark and embossed in white powder.  I stamped the leaves and cut them out as fast as I could and put foam tape behind them.   I was able to place them where I wanted quickly and changed my mind a few times on where they looked best.  This card looks so simple, but I think it is one of the more time consuming ones I've made for the craft dash.  I finished this card is 9 minutes and 10 seconds.

DeNami November Blog Hop: A Touch of Twine

Hopefully you just hopped here from Jennifer's' Blog --- if not you need to start at the beginning by visiting the DeNami Blog.

I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest that had lots of twine tied in bows. I thought it was a fun way to use the twine.  I used the circle interlock embossing folder on yellow cardstock.  This is a new one I picked up from DeNami, I love the pattern!  I tied 5 different colors of twine onto my card. I stamped the upright Happy Birthday sentiment using Deep Lagoon Versafine ink.

Have fun hopping along!!  Your next stop on the hop is to visit Tenia - I'm sure she has something fun for you to see!!

DeNami Pin-spired Project

I admit it, this photo stumped me.  I think its a great photo and all, but I couldn't figure out how to use it for inspiration on my card.  This simple Thanksgiving card idea finally came to me! 

Fun, fall themed patterned paper was cut into long triangles and taped onto the kraft cardstock front.  I then added a bit of twine and tied a few little bows.  The Happy Thanksgiving was stamped in sepia inside of the orange stitched rectangle.  I noticed the Happy Thanksgiving stamp is available as a cling now too - in case you don't prefer wood mounted.  As soon as I finished the card, I realized I should have embossed the kraft cardstock to add some interest/dimension.  Maybe next time!!  I don't have patience to re-do a card, call me lazy.
