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.

Sail Away Gift Box



Hi Everyone!


Elizabeth here with another project for DeNami Design. Summer is here and everyone is having summer parties so I thought I would give you a great idea for a little party favor for your parties. I made a Sailboat Owl Gift Favor Box. If you are having a nautical themed party this will be perfect for you but you can easily change this for any party!









This is a quick and easy project so making them won’t take that long! To make this box I die cut the stripe using a milk carton die. To create the milk carton you will need 2 sheets of 6x6 paper. You want to make sure that you use a good quality paper so that the box will hold up. To assemble the box, I creased all the fold lines before I adhered everything together. I used my tape runner to assemble the box. For the Sailboat Owl, I stamped the Medium Dot Circle Frame in blue dye ink and then the Medium Sailboat Owl in black ink on smooth white cardstock. To color in the owl, I used Copic markers to do some quick coloring. I used a scalloped circle punch to cut out the owl and agreed it to the box with foam tape. I found some clothes line clips in my stash and there just happen to be yellow, so I used it to close the top of the box. 

I hope that you like this project and that you get some ideas for any parties that you have this year!

Happy Gift Packaging Idea

Hello, DeNami Design Friends! 

It’s Lisa P. Today I’m sharing a cute and fun way to decorate a gift package. The idea is to create a hand-stamped gift wrap sash. This works especially well for wrapping up books and/or journals.

I cut a 3” x 16” strip of white butcher paper and stamped a bunch of images from DeNami Design’s newest release onto the strip (Note: The size of the strip will vary depending on the size of the item you’re wrapping.). Since I’m wrapping up a children’s book, I chose images that coordinated with the theme of the book. The fun part of this is that you can decorate the sashes any way you want to. If the gift recipient loves owls, you could use owl images. If it’s for a birthday, you could use cupcake and candle images. If it’s for a particular holiday, you could decorate the sash to go with whatever holiday you’re celebrating. Fun, right?!?!

Here’s a look at my sash:





I used markers to add color to the images and folded the sash along the long edges to create a nice clean look. To finish, I wrapped up a children’s book in kraft butcher paper, wrapped the gift wrap sash around it, and tied on some baker’s twine. Check it out:







So simple, but a great way to add a personalized touch to your gift wrapping!

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

Flower Patch Garden Card- Guest Designer

Hello DeNami Friends,


Here is our next installment of Anika Lerche's lovely cards for us. Today, she features the Flower Patch Clear stamp set. She created a garland to create a unique decoration that you can use with a sentiment. How clever is that?!

The set is great for making backgrounds, bouquets, garlands, gardens, flowerboxes, or as accents. It's a great one to add to your collection for that "go to" set.

She will be back next Friday for her next inspiring project. Be sure to come back for that.





  • I stamped the flowers on watercolor cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed them in white. 
  • I colored the flowers with watercolors and fuzzy cut them.
  • I die cut a curved edge from white cardstock and arranged the flowers on the edge. I adhered the cardstock to the card base with dimensional adhesive.
  • For the sentiment I choose matching alphabet sticker.

Card Remake Inspiration



Hi Everyone!

Elizabeth here with another card for DeNami Design. For today's card I decided to use the same layout and main image stamp to create a get well card but using different technique. This will show you how you can take a card that you have made before and completely change the look by using a a different technique. The original card is from June 1, 2016 and was the Outdoor Adventures theme. When I made that card it was intended to be a friendship card. When I looked at the card I thought that it would be good get well card by changing the sentiment and I would do more stamping on this card.

This is the original card:




To create the new card I stamped the Medium Owl with Flower and Happy Sunshine with black ink on smooth white cardstock. Next, I colored in these images using Copic markers. Also, stamped the Under the Weather in black ink after I colored my owl and sun. Next, I grabbed 2 different green dye inks and used the grass stamp from the Flower Patch set to stamp the grass under the owl. I started with the darker green first and then filled in with the lighter green. The panel was cut out with a stitched rectangle die and then I trimmed down the cloud pattern paper with my paper trimmer. I adhered these to my card base using my tape runner. on the inside of the card, I stamped Get Well Soon in black ink and the Medium Owl with Flower in a grey dye ink. To add some sparkle to the card I coated the sun with a clear sparkle pen. It is hard to see in the pictures, but I promise that it’s there! I hope you enjoyed my remake of a card and that you get through your cards and think “how can I remake this card?” Until next time!

Sending You Sunshine Rainbow Card

Hello, DeNami Design Friends! 

It’s Lisa P. This week our DT projects are all about the great outdoors. I created a card featuring several of DeNami Design’s newest stamps.




I think this would be a sweet card to send to a friend or family member who’s going through a tough time. All of those happy faces are sure to bring a smile! Here’s a closer look:





I stamped the images and sentiment onto a die-cut rectangle, added color with markers, added sparkle with a glitter pen, and tied on some baker’s twine. I die-cut a slightly larger rectangle from patterned paper, adhered it to a white card base and then added my stamped panel on top with foam tape. So simple!

Thanks for visiting today! Hope your week is off to a fantastic start!

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.
