Happy Thanksgiving!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner I decided to post another card using DeNami's Pumpkin Patch Border stamp. This is one of my favorite stamps in their fall line. I used DeNami's Cream Cardstock as my base and then added a little color using SU's Kiwi Kiss and Pumpkin Pie. I created a diamond pattern on the Pumpkin Pie cardstock using my Scor Pal. This is one item I can't live without. Love it! I colored the pumpkins with some Copic Markers and then added a little Chocolate Brown ribbon to finish it off.

I hope you and yours have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Sketch Challenge #5 at DeNami Design!

Today is sketch challenge day over on the DeNami Design blog. DT member Ayana chose a great sketch for us this month. I decided to stick with a Fall theme and make a quick card featuring DeNami's Pumpkin Patch Border and Thinking of You from the All Occasions Sentiment stamp set.

This card came together quickly using DeNami's white cardstock and some of SU's pumpkin pie and a scalloped piece of kiwi kiss cardstock. I stamped the Thinking of You and the Pumpkin Patch Border stamp with some Rich Cocoa Memento ink and then colored the pumpkins with Copic markers. Using some gold twine and one of my espresso buttons I was able to create the fun crisscross look. Isn't this a fun sketch? I am anxious to see what you all do with it.  

Have a great weekend!

Featured Product At DeNami....

Hello my friends! I hope you are all doing well. DeNami is featuring their Elegant Floral Arch stamp on the DeNami Design Blog today. This stamp truly lives up to its name. I love the elegant flair this gives to whatever you stamp it on.

I decided to make some party favors for my Christmas table this year and I thought this stamp would fit the bill. I stamped the Elegant Floral Arch  and For You stamps with Memento's black tuxedo ink onto a piece of white cs that I ran through my Cuttlebug using PTI's Mat stack #1 die. I colored the floral image with various Copic markers from my stash. I dotted the interior portion of my flower with some White Opal Liquid Pearls by Ranger and then covered them with DeNami's Extra Fine Sparklets Gitter. I finished it off with 3 small Black Buttons topped with pearls.

I cut some of DeNami's red cardstock using my party favor it box #1 die from PTI and created my party favor container. I adhered the stamped piece onto the front of the favor with Scor -Tape and finished it off with a bow made out of red and white Baker's Twine from PTI.

I found some cute Peppermint candy at Target in the $1 section and I think that they finished off my project nicely. Hope you like it. :)

Blessings to you and yours,

One of my favorite things......

I don't know about you but I think some of best things come in small packages. One of my favorite gift ideas is decorating hinged tins and filling them with candy, cards and other goodies. 

I chose DeNami's Small Daisy Blossom stamp in a Fall color theme to match some ribbon that I have had in my stash for quite a while. This project came together very quickly. I plan to fill it with some Hershey nuggets and give it to a good friend.

Thanks so much for stopping by my friends. :)


Supplies Used:
Stamps: DeNami
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie(SU)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Copic Marker
Hinged Tin(PTI)
