Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop


 Welcome to the Fall Coffee Lovers BlogHop!

So happy to have you stop by. We are sponsors of the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop. You can enter for the chance to win lots of prizes HERE. 

When I think of fall, I think of the deep rich colors that surround us here in the Pacific Northwest (Seattle). I wanted to incorporate those colors in this card.

The card has a ribbon tie to enclose it. You can use it with or without an envelope. This was a simple and quick card to make. You can easily change the theme by swapping out the Petit Four stamps I used for the background and changing the large focal stamp.

Here are the stamps I used:
PF21 Autumn Stamp Set
CL-GD010 Solid Leaves Stamp Set
I53 Medium Dot Circle Frame
A93 Teeny Swiss Dot
TK-VF012 Habanero Versafine Ink Pad
TK-VF054 Vintage Sepia Ink Pad
TK-VF062 Spanish Moss Ink Pad
PC32 Chocolate Brown Cardstock





Here's a close up. I stamped half the oak leaf in the Spanish Moss ink pad and half in the Habanero ink pad to create this variegated look.  The background was stamped in Vintage Sepia then colored in with markers. I stamped the Teeny Swiss Dot in the Habanero to balance out the color.





 Here's some of the supplies I used. The colors are so pretty!

Garden Birthday Card

Hi Everyone!


Elizabeth here with a pretty garden birthday card. I was inspired by all of the pink and metallic colors that I've been seeing lately. I thought that combining pink and rose gold would be really pretty and I love how it came out!









To create this card I hear embossed the Elegant Floral Circle in rose gold and used watercolor markers to color them in. Then I used a scalloped hole punch to punch it out. Next, I die cut some pink cardstock with a stitched rectangle die. I embossed a pattern using 3 of the stamps from the Ornamental Flowers set and embossed them in the same rose gold embossing powder. Also, I embossed Happy Birthday in black. Next, I adhered the pink panel to the card base and used foam tape to pop up the Elegant Floral Circle to give the card some dimension. This card would look great in lots of different colors so try it out and see what you come up with!

Missing You Heart Flower Card

Hello, DeNami Design Friends! 


It’s Lisa P. Today I’m sharing a card that features the recently released CL-D199 Little Heart Flowers and CL-E214 Missing You sentiment.






That little trio of flowers melts my heart! Isn’t it sweet?!?! And I absolutely love the font of the “Missing You” sentiment. So pretty!

I embossed a 5.5” x 4.25” white cardstock panel and adhered it to the front of a blank white card. I cut a 1.5” strip of white cardstock, stamped my images and sentiment across it, added color with markers and added a touch of sparkle with a clear glitter pen. I layered the stamped strip onto a 1.75” magenta cardstock strip and then adhered that to a strip of petal pink cardstock that had been die-cut with a stitched scallop border. To finish, I added the layered strips to the bottom portion of my card front and tied on some baker’s twine. Here’s a closer look:





I hope you like my creation for today! Thanks for stopping by!

Back to School Teacher Card

Hi Everyone!

Elizabeth here with a great thank you card for your kids teachers! It's fast and simple so you can make one for each teacher.






To create the card I stamped the Apple Basket, Thanks a Bunch and the apple from Happy Fruit in black dye ink. To color the apple basket and the apple I did very simple Copic shading coloring by using only 2 shades of each color. Underneath the apple basket and apple I used a light to ground the images so it didn't look like they were floating in space. I used 2 rectangle stitched dies to die cut the panel I stamped on and the plaid paper. Next, I adhered the plaid panel to my base and then offset the stamped panel to add some interest. I hope that this card inspires you pull out your stamps and make some thank you cards for kids teachers!

Planner Stickers for Back to School

Hello there, DeNami Design Friends! 


It’s Lisa P. This week our design team is sharing “Back To School” projects. DeNami Design has a ton of super adorable mini stamps. So, for my project, I decided to use an assortment of these mini stamps to create my own planner stickers. Here’s what I came up with:








I purchased some Avery Multi-Use Labels (3/4” round) from my local office supply store. Then, I selected a bunch of mini stamps and went to town stamping and coloring. I chose images that work well for tasks in my planner: cupcakes for birthdays, paw prints for vet appointments, coffee drinks for getting together with friends at the coffee shop, pencil for writing up blog posts, etc. I love how you can totally customize the stickers to fit your needs by selecting different stamped images! So much fun!!

Here’s a look at each individual sheet:














You could also stamp the images in different colored inks instead of coloring them. That would be a time-saver for sure!

I hope you like my project for today! Thanks so much for visiting!!!

Noah's Ark Shaker Card

Hi Everyone!

Elizabeth here with another fun project for DeNami Designs! Todays project is my absolute favorite kind of project! Shaker Cards! I love making shaker cards! They are so fun and easy to make!







For this shaker card I used a gender neutral plaid so that this card can be for someone expecting a boy or girl baby, or even twins. I used a frame die to create the shaker frame and kept the inside piece to use as the background in the shaker, that way I’m not wasting any paper! I stamped Congratulations on the background piece in a black ink. Next, I cut a piece of acetate just slightly smaller than the frame and used a strong tape adhesive to adhere the acetate to the frame. Then I cut some foam tape to go around the frame and adhered it the frame making sure that I didn’t leave any gaps in between the foam tape so that the sequins couldn’t escape. I set this aside to work on the ark. I stamped the Noah’s Ark on some white cardstock with a black dye ink. I kept the coloring fairly simple with Copic markers. For the zebra I used a very light grey and very light blue on top of each other and then went over that with the colorless blender to lighten it some more. This gives the effect of some shadow and the zebra still looks light. For the lion, I colored him in a yellow and then for his mane, I used a darker yellow that has hint of orange and brown, and flicked the color on his mane. Next, I fussy cut the ark out and to give it a finished look, I went around the edges, from the back, with a black marker. By doing this from the back, if I slipped then the black would be on the back of the ark instead of on the front! I adhered the ark to the frame with strong tape adhesive and glue dots. To make the card, I adhered the background to a top folding A2 card base with tape runner after carefully lining everything up. Next, I lay out my sequins on the card and spread them out over the background. I like to place the frame over the sequins to get an idea of whether or not I need to add more sequins and if so which color. Once I have the right amount of sequins, I carefully line up the frame with the background and adhere the frame to the card base. 

I loved making this card! I hope that it inspires you create some shaker cards! Until next time!

Happy Hula Shaker Card

Hello, DeNami Design Friends


 It’s Lisa P. Today I’m sharing a shaker card. I absolutely love making shaker cards, and I thought pairing up the NEW CL-F252 Medium Hula Owl with the shaker idea would be super fun!





I used the PPPD10 Stitched Banner Duo 1 Dies (available at DeNami Design) to create my shaker focal point. I was so excited when I realized that the G121 Aloha sentiment fit so perfectly in the bottom portion of the banner! YAY!

There are lots of great video tutorials out there on how to create shaker cards, so I won’t get into details on the step-by-step process. But here are a couple of more photos of the shaker card all “shook up” and a close-up view too.








I had so much fun making this card!! I think I’ll send it to my niece who is about to turn 4 later this month! I think she’ll get a real kick out of it!

Hope you like my creation for today! Thanks for stopping by!

Missing You Flower Card



Hi Everyone!

Elizabeth here with another cute card for DeNami Design! This week is about adding some dimension to your cards. For my card I went back to my style of keeping it simple and easy!








The dimension on this card is in the frame. To create my card, I first die cut my frame out of the pink paper. I then die cut the frame 3 times out of white cardstock and I made sure that I kept the center piece from one of those pieces to do my stamping on. Next, I stamped the Happy Daisy, Happy Flower Pot and Missing You on the piece that I kept in black dye ink. I kept the coloring simple for the flower and pot and did no shading Copic coloring. So that the flower and pot weren’t just floating around on the panel, I anchored them by coloring some grey across the bottom and some shading for the pot and flower. I set this aside while I worked on the rest of the card. I trimmed my pattern paper down to 4”x5.25” and adhered that to a top folding A2 card base using tape runner. Next, I adhered all the frames together using liquid glue and stacking them on top of each other with the pink one on top. The 3D frame is adhered to the flower pattern paper using liquid glue. Next, I added some liquid glue to back of the panel with the pot and flower and placed it inside the frame. I like to use liquid glue for this so that I can I shift it around a little bit before it dries. The key is to put on a small amount of glue otherwise your cardstock will warp. To finish the card, I used a clear sparkle pen and added some glitter to the flower. I tried to get a good picture with the sparkle but it’s very hard to capture that sparkle! I hope that my card inspires you to add some dimension to your cards! Until next time!

Happy Birthday Cappucino Card

Hello, DeNami Design Friends! 


It’s Lisa P. This week our DT projects are all about layers. Using die-cuts is a fun and simple way to add layers to your cards. And foam tape is a great way to add a 3D effect to this layered look.

My card for today features the NEW CL-E207 Medium Happy-cino stamp, one of my favorites from the most recent release!!!




I die-cut the scalloped rectangle frames from white cardstock. I then cut a 3” x 4” panel from patterned paper and adhered it to the back of the smaller frame. I cut a 4” x 5” panel from patterned paper and adhered it to the back of the larger frame. I mounted the larger frame directly onto a blank kraft card base and then used 3D foam tabs to mount the smaller frame on top. I stamped the NEW CL-E207 Medium Happy-cino image onto a circle die-cut from white cardstock, added color with markers, added sparkle with a glitter pen, and adhered it to the top center of my card with 3D foam tabs. To finish, I die-cut a banner from white cardstock, stamped the sentiment in the center, folded the edges of the banner and adhered it to the card with a strip of foam tape.

Here’s a closer look:





And here’s a better look at the 3D layers:




I hope you like my project for today!

Happy Under the Sea Card



Hi Everyone!

Elizabeth here with another fun card for DeNami Design! This week’s theme is the beach but I decided to take it a step further and make a fun under the sea card! Lately I have been trying different techniques and combining them together. This card combines ink blending and watercoloring! I love how this card came out!







I will tell you upfront that this card is more involved than most of my cards and it took me about 2 hours to create it. I blame all the fussy cutting! For this card, I stamped out all of my images, and a few extra, onto some masking paper using a black dye ink. You can use any ink that you have on hand and if you don’t have masking paper you can use post it tape. I fussy cut out all of the images, which if you know me, I hate fussy cutting but it was worth it for this card! Next, I created my scene by placing the masks on smooth white cardstock. I did some ink blending over the masks to create the sand at the bottom of the sea and the water. At first, I was applying the ink using the circle motion but the edge of my masks kept coming up so I switched to pouncing instead and I love the results that I got! After I finished the ink blending, I spritzed the panel with some water and let it set for about 20 seconds and then picked up the water with a paper towel. I removed the masks and my sea animals were mostly clean so that I could watercolor them. Before I colored them in I die cut my panel with a stitched rectangle die. Next, I colored them in using dye inks as my watercolor with a water brush. After I colored them I adhered the panel to a top folding A2 card base. To finish the card, I add some glitter with a sparkle pen on top of all the sea animals and sea shells. It’s very hard to photograph the sparkle you get the from glitter from the glitter pens but I promise you, it’s there and it’s gorgeous! 

I hope my card inspires you to try a new technique and combine techniques to create some fabulous cards! Until next time!

Summer Surfer Owl Card

Hello, DeNami Design Friends! 

This week our DT projects are all about the beach. I couldn’t resist creating a card with a little scene featuring the NEW CL-F253 Medium Surfer Owl. Isn’t he cute?!?!






I die-cut a stitched rectangle from white cardstock and some waves from two shades of aqua cardstock. I stamped the surfer owl and then added the speech bubble, “hey” sentiment, clouds and sun around him. I added color with markers and a touch of sparkle with a glitter pen. I adhered the waves to the stamped panel, tied on some baker’s twine and then adhered it with foam tape to a card base covered with patterned paper.








A simple but cute card that can be used for any occasion!

Hope you like my project for today! Have a fabulous week!!

Happy Monster Birthday Card- Guest Designer

Hi DeNami Friends,

We welcome back Anika Lerche for another cute and fun card. She created this adorable birthday card using the monster and balloon stamp. This is great for sending cheer or any kind of celebration.

She was so clever to make a bouquet of balloons with the one balloon that is on the stamp itself. So creative! You can also just create a balloon bouquet for any other kind of cards separately. The possibilities are endless.

We are so delighted to have featured Anika with us. Be sure to subscribe so you don't miss any of our guest posts. You never know who will be next.




  • I stamped the monster onto Copic friendly paper, masked it with a post it note and stamped some additional balloons. After that I colored the image with Copics. 
  • I masked the monster once gain, this time with masking fluid and added some inkblending to the background to create a sky.
  • I stamped the sentiment with Versafine.
  • I die cute the square from that piece of paper, added a layer of kraft cardstock.
  • To the cardbase I adhered a piece of patterned paper an assembled the card.

Summertime Fun Card



Hi DeNami Friends,

Elizabeth here with another project! It's hot here in Cincinnati and I thought it would be awesome to be by the pool with a nice drink so I'm using that for inspiration this week! It's always more fun hanging out by the pool with a cool drink and some friends!







To create my card I created the background using the Stitched Border and happy cocktails set. For the stitched border I used orange and green dye ink. For the cocktails I used a Copic friendly ink and colored them with some bright Copic colors (see supplies listed below for the colors used). The owl is the new Medium Chillin' Owl with the new You Make Life More Fun stamp. Both of these are stamped in Copic friendly ink and colored in with Copic markers. I die cut it with a stitched circle die and then with a stitched rectangle die to keep the stitching all the way around. I also used the stitched rectangle die on the background piece. I made an A2 card base from some yellow cardstock and adhered everything with my tape runner. I hope that this card inspires you to create some summer themed cards using the new stamps! Until next time!

Summer Barbeque BBQ Invitation

Hello, DeNami Design Friends! 


It’s Lisa P. This week our DT projects are all about food and drinks. I absolutely ADORE all of the new food and drink stamps that DeNami Design recently released and couldn’t resist inking them up to create a super fun Summer party invitation. Here’s what I came up with:





I die-cut a stitched rectangle from white cardstock, stamped the images, added color with markers, and added a touch of sparkle with a glitter pen. I die-cut a slightly larger rectangle from patterned paper and adhered the stamped panel on top. These would be very easy to mass produce, and you could easily change up the images to coordinate with whatever food and beverages you plan to serve at your party. Here’s a closer look:





I hope you like my project for today! Thanks so much for visiting!

Monster Car Card- Guest Designer

Hi DeNami Friends,

Anika Lerche returns for a whimsical and fun card using the monster in car stamp. They are doing a little joy ride and sharing the joy here.

The card is simple, but the colors are exquisite. This card would be easy to make into a birthday or celebration card just by changing the sentiment and adding a bouquet of balloons to the car.

These little monsters are busy and have many fun activities. You can add to your collection to use for any and all occasions.

She will be returning next Friday for another card surprise. Be sure to check back.
Thanks for stopping by!




  • I took a piece of white cardstock and added some ink blending. I splattered some water on it to get the droplets effect and cut it it down a little bit more narrow than my card base.
  • For the image I chose to go for no line coloring: I stamped the image in a light ink and colored them with colored pencils. I adhered the monsters in the car with a action Whobbler to the card panel.
  • I adhered some patterned paper with black and white stripes to the card base and added the card panel.
