Featured Product At DeNami....

Yes, its time for another featured product over on the DeNami Design blog. Paulina chose one of my favorite stamps from the fall/winter line.... the Winter Evergreen Tree. This stamp is so versitile! I put together a simple gift card by stamping my image on some Sky Blue cardstock with Cloud White Versa Magic ink and then sprinkled it with some of DeNami's White  Embossing Powder to make it pop. Using some Ruby Red liquid pearls I added some ornaments. This technique is so easy and effective!

To finish off the card I stamped and embossed the "for you" sentiment from the Everyday Greetings petite four collection and then added a touch of ribbon from my stash. I hope you are all having fun getting ready for the holiday. DeNami's line of holiday stamps sure makes it easier!

Have a blessed day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Holiday Tag.......

I hope you are all doing well today. I have been working on getting all of my Christmas presents wrapped and thought I would share a tag that I made.

I love DeNami's Medium Lacy Flake stamp. I used The Essential Glue Pad to stamp my image on a 1 3/4 " circle made from white cardstock and then sprinkled some of DeNami's Silver Glitter to give it some bling. I adhered this piece onto some red cardstock that I punched out using the 2" scallop circle punch. I then glued that piece onto a white tag that I had in my stash and added some red, white and green thread.

This came together so quickly that I made many more and just changed the colors to match my gift wrap. So fun and easy! I hope you are getting a chance to enjoy the season.

Blessings to you,

Laurie :)

Product Challenge At DeNami!

It's DeNami product challenge time again and this time Paulina decided to challenge us to use DeNami's paper punches. I chose the 2" scallop circle punch by Marvy. This punch is so versatile and coordinates beautifully with a 1 3/4" circle punch.

I used DeNami's white cardstock as my card base and then I cut a 5 X 4 piece of sky blue cardstock and stamped the Small Classic Christmas stamp in SU's craft white ink and embossed it using DeNami's white embossing powder. I stamped and embossed the Medium Lacy Snowflake on 3 pieces of 1 3/4" circles on sky blue cardstock and then adhered them onto 3 of the 2" scallop circles in white. Then I adhered them to the front of the card. Easy peasy! Hope you like it.

We had four inches of snow today! Winter has definitely arrived here in the Midwest.

Thanks so much for visiting me today! :)

Seasons Tweetings!

Hi Everyone! Just wanted to pop in and show you a card I created using DeNami's Season's Tweetings and Christmas Tweety Birds stamps. DeNami's whole line of chickie stamps are just adorable aren't they?

Starting with DeNami's white cardstock as my base I used PTI's March and April Color Couture printable paper line for my patterned paper choices. I stamped my sentiment and the tweety birds with Memento's black tuxedo ink and then I used various Copic Markers from my stash to color in the images.

I finished the card off with some red saddle stitched ribbon and various DeNami Boutique Buttons. The scallops were added using my Fiskars mini scallop scissors. Hope you like it!

Thanks for making me part of your day.

Laurie :)
