Bouquet Birthday Card

Hello DeNami Friends!

Today, I've got a card that is the perfect summer birthday card!  I love the little elements in the Flower Patch clear stamp set; they are perfect for building a little bunch!
Here's how I created my card:
  1. I die cut a rectangle from a piece of white cardstock.
  2. I used red and orange ink, and an ink blender tool to blend ink on the entire panel.
  3. die cut a circle towards to upper part of the ink blended panel.
  4. I played the ink blended panel on top of another piece of white cardstock, and then lightly traced around the inside of the cut out circle with a pencil, so I could use it as a guide for my stamping.  I set aside the ink blended panel to work on the white cardstock.  
  5. I stamped the medium birthday circle sentiment with yellow/orange ombre ink inside the traced circle.  Then, I carefully erased the pencil traced circle. 
  6. I stamped three of the floral images, and some leaves from the Flower Patch stamp set inside the birthday circle sentiment with Memento tuxedo black ink.   
  7. I colored in the images with markers, and added some red dots for berries.  
  8. I added some foam tape to the ink blended panel.  I carefully aligned the circle opening with the stamped images on the white cardstock, and adhered the 2 pieces together.
  9. I glued the entire thing to a white card base.
  10. To finish off my card, I added a piece of natural twine.  I thought it went really well with the flowers.  
I hope you like my card!  I love sunflowers and "country style" bouquets, so that was my inspiration for the colors!

Donut Worry Be Happy Card

Hi Everyone!

Elizabeth here with another fun and simple card. I don’t know about you but I love donuts! My personal favorite are custard filled with chocolate frosting! I was wanting some donuts when I remembered the donut stamp and thought I would make a card with donuts and then maybe I wouldn’t eat any! That didn’t work! I still had a donut! 

To create this card I first stamped the Stitched Border stamp in grey dye ink, leaving enough room for the donuts. Next, I stamped the donuts in three different dye inks between the grey stitched lines. After that I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die. I used a larger stitched rectangle to cut out the grey cardstock to go as the bottom layer of my card. For the circle, I stamped Donut Worry Be Happy stamp in black dye ink and stamped the donut in another dye ink color. Next, I cut it out using a stitched circle die. When I was designing this card in my head I really liked the of having the stitched look through out the card to bring it all together. To assemble the card I used a tape runner for the two rectangle panels and foam tape for the circle to add some dimension. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week! Don’t forget when your creating a card to “Donut worry, be happy” and eat a donut!

Owl Always Be Your Friend Card

Hello, DeNami Design friends! 

It’s Lisa P. Today I’m sharing a card using one of my all-time favorite DeNami Design owl images, the G147 Owl Trio. Aren’t they the cutest?!?!

I die-cut a bubble box tag twice (once from white cardstock and once from patterned paper). I stamped the G147 Owl Trio onto the white tag, added color with markers and then stamped the sentiment underneath. I cut the top ¾” and the bottom ¾” from the patterned paper tag and adhered them to the top and bottom of the stamped tag. I then die-cut a slightly larger bubble box tag from patterned paper and layered it together with my stamped tag. To finish, I attached this to a blank A2 white card base and rounded the corners.

Here’s a closer look:

I kept this card nice and flat to make it super simple to drop in the mail.

Hope you like my card for today! Thanks for visiting!!

Graduation Owl Card

Hi Everyone!

Graduation season is upon us and I was completely not prepared for it! This card is my favorite kind of card: fast and simple! I wanted to make a card that could be used for kids under high school because it is hard to find graduation cards for them.

To make this card, I found some cute pattern paper in my stash that I have had for a while. It came from paper pad that had papers for all the seasons of the year. I stamped the owl in black ink on white cardstock and colored him in with Copic markers. I stamped the dot circle border around the owl in yellow die ink and used a scalloped circle paper punch to cut him out. Next, I stamped Congratulations on white cardstock and trimmed it out with with scissors to have a flag end. Lastly, I adhered to an A2 card base. I used a tape runner for the the pattern paper panel and the sentiment. For the owl, I used foam tape to add a little dimension to the card. On the envelope, I stamped the owl in black ink. I hope that you enjoyed my card and I will be back next week with another card!

Cute Pony Thank You Card

Hi, DeNami Design Friends! 

It’s Lisa P. On May 7th my husband and I attended our first Derby Party. It was so much fun!! I wanted to create/send a handmade thank you note to the party hosts and found the perfect images in my DeNami Design stash! Here’s what I came up with:

I stamped the CL-GD006 Leafy Square onto white cardstock, colored it in with markers, and then die-cut it out with a double-pierced square die. I stamped the horse from the PF25 Farm Animals Stamp Set as shown and colored him in. I die-cut a banner from white cardstock, stamped the sentiment, two roses and leaves, and added color with markers. I attached the banner just below the horse and then adhered this focal point to the front of my card base with foam tape. To finish up, I added a touch of sparkle to all of the images with a clear glitter pen.

Here’s a closer look:

I hope you like my card for today! If you’d like to see a couple of photos from the party, hop on over to my blog.

Thanks for visiting!!

Mimi Baby Shower Card

Hi Everyone!

Elizabeth here with another project for DeNami! This week I thought I would pull out one of my original stamps that I first purchased from her! So I pulled out Mom-to-be Mimi. I love this stamp because it is great to use for a baby shower card.

For my card I stamped Mimi in black ink and colored her with Copic markers. Next, I trimmed her down and found some lavender cardstock that matched adorable glittery button pattern paper that I found in my stash. I cut down the button paper to be the front panel of my card. For the base of my card I decided to to use kraft cardstock instead of the usual white. Also, in my stash I found some green cardstock that matched the button paper. I cut it into a banner and thought it would be cute with Petit Four Baby stamp set. I stamped those in a dye ink that was just a little darker than the paper. I placed Mimi on the lavender paper and adhered her to the right side of the card and adhered the banner on the left side of card. I hope that you enjoyed my card this week and it inspires you to pull out some of those older stamps that you haven't used in a while!

You are Sweet Donut Card

Hello, DeNami Design Friends! 

It’s Lisa P. Today I’m sharing a card featuring the NEW CL-B124 Happy Donut image! I absolutely LOVE this stamp! It totally makes me smile!!!

I die-cut a 5 ½” x 4 ¼” panel from white cardstock and then die-cut the bottom of the panel with a stitched scallop border. I stamped the NEW CL-B124 Happy Donut repeatedly across the bottom of the panel, colored the images in a rainbow of colors, and added a touch of sparkle with a glitter pen. I die-cut a banner from white cardstock, stamped the sentiment onto it, and adhered it to the panel. I added a strip of rainbow patterned paper to the bottom of a white card base, attached the stamped panel on top and rounded the top right-hand corner as a fun little detail.

Here’s a closer look:

I think this would make a great little thank you card!

Hope you like my project for today! Thanks so much for visiting!!

Ice Cream Birthday Card

Ice Cream Paper Piecing Birthday Card

Hi Everyone!

I scream, you scream, we scream for ice cream! I don’t know about you but I love ice cream. Ice cream is great for birthdays and DeNami has this great Ice Cream Shoppe Set where you can create your own ice cream or cupcake treats. I love this set and was waiting for the right time to use it. I recently purchased some pattern paper and thought that it would perfect to use with this stamp set!

Creating this card is simple and fast! My favorite kind of card! First, choose the pattern paper that you want to use for the card. For my card, I chose a pastel plaid for the background, orange stripes for the cone, yellow with hearts for the first scoop and green with polka dots for the second scoop. Next, stamp the images that you are going to use on the paper in black ink. Luckily, these images are easy to fussy cut out because that is next step. To create a nice finished edge on the pieces after I cut them out, I carefully run a black marker around the edges of the images. You will need to cut down the background to your desired and then you can adhere your cut images to background. Next, I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in the bottom right corner of the background in a nice black ink. Lastly, I adhered some enamel dots that I found in my stash to the top right corner. Adhere the panel to your card base and voila you have a great birthday card! I hope that you enjoyed my project!

Pastel Cards

Hello, DeNami Design Friends! 

It’s Lisa P. This week our design team is sharing “pastel cards.” Such a perfect theme for spring!

For my project I created two circle-shaped cards featuring the NEW CL-C110 Latte Owl. Isn’t he/she sweet?!?!

I die-cut two 3” circles from white cardstock and scored one of the circles 1” down from the top. I die-cut a 2 5/8” circle from celery cardstock, heat embossed the N109 Polka Dot Border in gold across the bottom, and stamped the sentiment about ½” above the polka dots. I adhered the celery circle to the center of the white circle (the one that was not scored) and added a die-cut scallop circle frame around it. I stamped the CL-C110 Latte Owl onto a separate sheet of white cardstock, added color with markers, fussy cut it out and adhered it as shown. To finish, I used some strong adhesive to adhere the scored circle to the back of the decorated front panel. Ta-da! A cute little circle-shaped card!

Here’s a closer look:

And here’s the same card in pink:

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

Guest Designer- Amy Tsuruta "I Need Coffee" Card

Hi Friends,

We welcome Amy Tsuruta for another installment as our guest designer. Today she creates this cute coffee card using the technique of masking. Masking is when you create the illusion of groupings by blocking a stamp or several stamps and stamp another image overlapping the blocked stamp, making it appear they were all in the same "scene".

Amy created this "scene" using coffee cups and making them appear they are in a cluster in the middle and bottom of the card. Isn't this clever?!

You can create these circle windows using die cuts or paper punches. It is a great and easy way to create interest on your card without too much work. This little strip can also be used to make a simple bookmark as an added gift.

Thanks for joining us today and
have a great weekend!

Monochromatic/Neutral Cards- Day 3 "I'm Sorry Card"

Hello crafty friends! 

Welcome back for another card that I created with stamps by DeNami Design. For today's card I used the three beautiful flower filigree stamps. 

I wanted to use the ink lifting technique for this card so I started off applying three colors of the orange color family on mix media cardstock. After the ink was dry I stamped the three stamps randomly on the cardstock using VersaMark and embossed them with clear embossing powder. Then, I spritzed the paper with water and lifted the ink from the paper leaving a softer touch of color behind. Except for the embossed area which still shows the intense color. 

I then cut the cardstock so I could create two cards. I adhered the inky panel to a white piece of cardstock and used a sorry die to die cut the word from both the colorful and the white cardstock. To create a little bit of dimension, I cut the word two additional times from white cardstock. To finish off the card, I die cut the panel with a scallop die and adhered it to a standard white notecard.

I hope you enjoyed my card for today. Have an amazing week!

Monochromatic/neutral cards- Day 2 "Gold Dots"

Hi Everyone!

This week is all about neutral colors or monochromatic cards. I decided to go with a neutral color and use kraft paper. Neutral colors are great because the card can be specific or for anyone. I like kraft paper because you can make it as colorful or neutral as you want and still create a great card.

The base of my card is kraft paper. In my stash, I found some paper that is kraft with gold foil polka dots. I decided that this would be wonderful for this card and it helped me with designing the card. The next layer is another piece of kraft paper that I heat embossed with gold embossing powder because I don’t have any gold paper. For the top layer, I stamped the Elegant Floral Vine stamp and embossed it with the same gold embossing powder as the layer below. The sentiment that I used is the Small Happy Birthday and I heat embossed with white embossing powder. This card is a quick and simple card that you could easily change for other occasions. I hope that you enjoyed my project this week! Until next time!

Monochromatic/Neutral Cards- Day 1 "Birthday Stripes"

Hello, DeNami Design Friends! 

It’s Lisa P. This week our design team is featuring neutral or monochromatic cards. My sister-in-law’s birthday is coming up, so I decided to create a card for her using four different shades of her favorite color: purple. Here’s what I came up with:

The N128 Three Line Border stamp continues to be one of my go-to stamps from DeNami Design. I absolutely LOVE it!! 

To make this card, I simply inked up the N128 Three Line Border and stamped it repeatedly, switching to a new shade of purple ink every few times and working my way from the lightest shade of purple to the darkest. Then, I inked up the Happy Birthday sentiment from the TR16 All Occasion Sentiments Stamp Set in the darkest shade of purple and stamped it in the upper left-hand corner. To finish, I tied on some hemp cord and added some sparkle to the stripes at the bottom of the card.

What do you think???

I hope you like my project for today and feel inspired to get inky!!

Have a fantastic week!

Wedding Week -Day 3 "Wedding Owls"

Hi DeNami friends,

Today I want t show you this wedding card that I made using the cute owl love birds. I wanted to make a really simple and easy card and didn't want to include too many colors. I started off stamping the owls on white cardstock and colored them in with alcohol markers. 

For the card itself, I die cut a banner from white cardstock and stamped the sentiment "Congratulations you  tied the knot" with black ink. Using an embossing folder, I embossed the front part of a standard white notecard and adhered the banner piece to it using foam tape to give it a little bit of dimension. The owls were adhered to the bottom center of the banner using glue dots. 

To finish off the card I included white and gold baker's twine and tied a bow (or a knot...) at the bottom of the card. I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did.

Guest Designer- Amy Tsuruta "Hoppy Spring" Striped Card

Hi Friends,

We welcome Amy Tsuruta back for more stamping fun. She created a unique spring card today. From the initial impression, it appears the background is on a striped cardstock, but what she actually did was use half inch (.5 inch) strips of alternating cardstock and mounted it to the base layer card creating her own unique background. It makes it more special, but at the same time it is a simple way of creating that special card.

This is a great way to use your scraps of paper that you may have. If you are a papercrafter then you have always hoped to use your scraps, so this is the perfect solution!

What ways do you use your scraps? I'd love to hear.

Thanks for joining us today!
