Hello Chickie Tags- Guest Designer

Hello DeNami Friends,

Today we have a special guest from Germany, Anika Lerche. She is an avid card maker and creator. You will see she has a keen eye for color and design. She uses many mediums from colored pencils, to markers to watercolors.

She will be joining us on Fridays for the few weeks so be sure to visit.






Hello, I am Anni and I’m from Germany. For 15 years now I´ve lived in the beautiful city Berlin and I am married. I work as a math-teacher at a vocational college. Making papercrafts is a perfect balance to that.
I have been stamping since 2008, I love clean and simple cards, and yet eventually my cards often turn out to be somewhat more complex. I love the therapy of paper piecing and resist techniques. You can see all my projects at www.anikarten.blogspot.de.



Here's my monster tag projects:




  • I die cut tags from Copic friendly paper.
  • I stamped the birds with Memento ink and colored them with Copic markers. I also created a ground and a sky around them with copics.
  • I choose one color for every bird/tag and left the tag monochrome.
  • I die cut the sentiment from matching cardstock.
  • For some contrast I added black and white twine.

Panda Traveler's Notebook

Hello DeNami Friends!

Today, I've got a DIY traveler's notebook for you!  If you follow my blog or instagram, you'll know that I have been obsessed with traveler's notebooks, especially making my own! Today I will show you how to make your own, and embellish them using DeNami design stamps!

You may or may not know that my family & I are joyfully expecting baby #3!  I wanted a place to document my pregnancy.  I used to have a pregnancy journal that I used for both of my previous pregnancies, but I can't seem to find it, so I decided to make my own "baby bear/bump" traveler's notebook.  

I really hope you enjoy my project, and I hope I inspired you to DIY your own traveler's notebook!

To make the traveler's notebook:
  1. I cut down a piece of craft cardstock to 9 x 8 inches, then scored down the middle, so my traveler's notebook would measure 4 1/2 x 8 inches.
  2. I cut down some graph paper (torn out of a spiral notebook) down to 9 x 8 inches, then scored down the middle.
  3. I placed the paper inside the cardstock, then sewed down the middle/fold using my sewing machine.  (Note: if you don't have a sewing machine, you can hand stitch or staple your project together.)  You may need to trim down the sides of the graph paper due to the folding and bulk.
  4. I took a corner chomper tool, and rounded the right edges of my notebook.
To embellish my traveler's notebook:
  1. I die cut a heart from a piece of white cardstock.
  2. I stamped the panda image repeatedly onto the heart.
  3. I attached the panda heart to the front of my notebook using low profile foam tape.
  4. I also stamped the various panda images to the bottom right corner of some of the graph pages in my notebook.  (I lightly colored some of the images as well.)
  5. To hold my notebook closed, I got a piece of pink & white twine, and tied it in a pretty bow.

Coffee Gift Card Box

Hi Everyone!

Elizabeth here with another post for DeNami Designs. I know a lot of coffee drinkers but personally I’m not one of them. I don’t like coffee at all. So I struggle with what to get coffee loving friends and family. Then I figured out that there is no better gift than a gift card to their favorite coffee shop and for most of my friends and family that is Starbucks. I used Starbucks colors as the inspiration for making a gift card box.




This project is very easy and fast to make, so you can make lots of them for birthdays, holidays and even parties! First I made the gift card box using a pillow box die. I chose a pattern paper that is white with green polka dots. Assembling the boxes easy! Just fold the 2 score lines that die creates for you and use tape runner or liquid glue on the tab. The ends of the box have flaps that you just fold in. One of the flaps has a notch and I do recommend folding that flap in first to get a clean look. Next, I stamps the Medium Happy-Cino on smooth white cardstock and colored it in with Copic markers. I kept the coloring simple by not doing any shading but if you want to, you can because the image is large enough. I used a scalloped circle punch to cut out the coffee and then adhered it with liquid glue. I hope that you enjoyed my project for today and that it inspires you to make some fun gift card boxes!

Independence Day Celebration Card

Hello, DeNami Design Friends!

It’s Lisa P. The 4th of July holiday here in the United States is right around the corner, so this week our DT is sharing projects with a “Patriotic” theme.

Do you remember having Rocket Pops as a kid? Those were my favorite kind of popsicles! Well, for my card today I decided to turn a couple of the new popsicle images into Rocket Pops. Here’s what I came up with:






I added some small starbursts as my fireworks! And I thought the “You’re A Blast” sentiment was super fun! I also added sparkle to all of the images with a clear glitter pen! It really shimmers!!!








I hope you like my project for today!

Thanks for visiting!

Popsicle Party

Hello, DeNami Design friends! 

It’s Lisa P. Today I’m sharing several ideas for creating a Popsicle-Themed Party! This idea was inspired by the super adorable popsicle stamps that were recently released by DeNami Design! LOVE them!!!

Here’s a look at the collection of goodies I created:






When I was making one of my tags for Sneak Peek Week, I realized that the PPPD07 Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 3 Dies look just like a popsicle (minus the stick). That sparked the idea to add a craft stick to the bottom of the die-cut and turn it into a popsicle. That, in turn, sparked the idea to create some popsicle party invitations. Here’s what I came up with:





For each invitation, I die-cut the tag five times (once from patterned paper, twice from coordinating colored cardstock, and twice from white cardstock). I used a couple of border dies to trim the bottom of the patterned paper tags. I adhered the patterned paper tag to the coordinating colored cardstock tag and then to a white tag. Then, I glued a craft stick to the back side of the white tag. I stamped the F82 It’s A Party sentiment and the F83 Party Info image onto the second colored cardstock tag, adhered it to the second white tag, and then adhered those to the back of the previously layered tags. Ta-da! A popsicle invitation!

Here’s a look at the back side of the invitations:





Instead of using envelopes to package up the invitations, I thought these glassine bags were perfect! They measure 3 3/8” x 4 ¾”.




I also made some little treat bags using the mini version of the same tag. I followed the same process I used for the invitations, but left out the extra white cardstock layers. And for the popsicle stick I used a die-cut for a snow ski (just the bottom portion of the die-cut). I cut a stitched label from white cardstock, stamped the sentiment and clipped everything together onto a glassine treat bag with a tiny wooden clothespin.





Finally, I made some little place cards or food/snack labels. These were super simple and feature many of the new popsicle images from DeNami Design (see supply list at the end of this post). I die-cut three stitched rectangles from white cardstock, stamped the images, and added color with markers and a touch of sparkle with a glitter pen. I cut three coordinating pieces of colored cardstock to 3 1/8” x 4 ¼” and scored each at 2 1/8”. To finish, I attached the stamped rectangle in the center.




I hope you like what I’ve shared today!!! I had so much fun putting this little popsicle party together!!!

Here’s one more look at the whole ensemble:

Father's Day Card- "You're the Best"

Hello DeNami Friends!

Today, I've created a card using the Little Leaf Filigree stamp and the You're the Best sentiment.  I didn't set out to make a Father's day card, but as I worked with the colors, it kinda morphed into the perfect masculine card for Father's day!  Win win, lol!  

Here's how I created my card
  1. I die cut a heart from a piece of white card stock.  Then I ink blended a light blue ink with an ink blending tool.
  2. I used Versamark ink to stamp the You're the Best sentiment, and then heat set it with gold embossing powder.
  3. I die cut a rectangle from another piece of white cardstock.  I used 2 different blue inks and 2 different green inks to blend inks onto my panel.
  4. I stamped the little leaf filigree stamp repeatedly with Versafine ink, creating a beautiful background panel.
  5. I adhered the heart to the background panel with foam tape.
  6. I adhered the entire piece to a navy blue card base.
I hope you like my card!  I love that I created a Father's day card, and I can't wait to give it to my husband!  I think the sentiment says it all, and the little leaf filigree adds just the perfect background detail without being feminine!

Father's Day Card- "Cheers"

Hello, DeNami Design Friends! 

It’s Lisa P. This week our design team is sharing Father’s Day projects featuring images from DeNami Design’s brand new release! (Isn’t the new release amazing?!?! If you missed the sneak peeks and release…you’ll definitely want to check it out! It’s filled with over-the-top cuteness!!!)

When I travel back east to visit my parents and brothers, we have a tradition of going to Primanti’s for beers and sammies. So, when I saw the NEW CL-PF69 Happy Drinks set I knew that bottle image was perfect for my dad’s Father’s Day card this year.





I stamped the bottle image twice, angling each to make it look like they were clinking, and added color with markers. I masked the images and stamped the J16 Small Splatter over top. Then, I stamped the bottle image two more times onto a scrap piece of white cardstock, colored them with markers, fussy cut them, and adhered them on top of the previously stamped bottle images with foam tape. This adds a bit of dimension to the card. I stamped the CL-F211 Happy Father’s Day sentiment below the splatter. To finish, I die-cut a PPPD19 Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Speech Bubble from white cardstock, stamped the word “cheers” onto it and added it above the bottles.

Here’s a closer look:





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