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!

Wedding Week- Day 2 "Beautiful Bride Card"

Hi Everyone!

This week’s theme is wedding. Weddings are such a special day for the happy couple and giving them a thoughtful and beautiful card for their wedding is a great way to show them that you love them and are happy for them.

The card that I made is simple yet beautiful. First, I stamped the Mimi Bride on white cardstock and colored her in using Copic markers and I did a little shading to add some depth to Mimi. Next, I die cut her with a stitched rectangle die because I wanted the stitched edge around her. After going through my large stash of paper and cardstock, I found a very pretty pearlized rose pattern paper. I cut it to cover the front of an A2 card and adhered it using my tape runner. After that, I adhered Mimi to card with part of the right side hanging off the card and I trimmed the part that was hanging over. For the sentiment, I stamped Congratulations on white metallic cardstock and die cut it with a banner die. The banner was adhered to the card with foam tape to add some dimension. To add a little sparkle, I placed three white glitter enamel dots in the top left corner of card. I hope that you enjoyed my card this week! Until next week!

Wedding Week- Day 1 "Congrats Card"

Happy Monday, DeNami Design Friends!

It’s Lisa P. This week our design team is featuring projects with a wedding theme. DeNami Design has a wide variety of images in their collection for creating whimsical and elegant cards for weddings and engagements. I used a combination of three stamp sets on my card for today.

I started with a blank piece of white cardstock and then went to town stamping the cake, hearts, flowers, and doves. I didn’t follow any particular pattern, I just had fun with it. Then, I took a rectangle die and die-cut a portion of this stamped panel. I colored in parts of each image with markers and added a touch of sparkle with a glitter pen. I matted the stamped rectangle with a 4.25” x 5.5” black cardstock rectangle, and adhered that to an A2 white card base. To finish, I die-cut a stitched label, stamped the “congrats” sentiment onto it, and adhered it to the upper right-hand corner of the card.

Here’s a closer look:

I had so much fun making this card! I hope you like it!!!

Have a wonderful week!

Guest Blogger- Kay Miller "Watercolor Flower Card"

Hello and Happy Friday
I am excited to be guesting with DeNami Designs stamps this month! I have a  fun card to share with you today using some super sweet stamps!

Aren't those stamps just adorable! I love the little bunny with the flower! For this card, I stamped everything in waterproof ink right onto my watercolor panel. I watercolored the background and the pretty pink flowers with Peerless watercolors. 

I stamped the little bunny on a separate piece of paper, colored him with Copic markers and fussy cut him out. I adhered him to my watercolored panel with foam tape. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! All of the products I used for this card are listed and linked below!

Have a wonderful weekend!

All About Layers- Day 3 "Congrats Owls"

Hi DeNami friends,

This week I created a card for you with a lot of layers. To create this card I used stitched scallop rectangle and rectangle dies in different sizes and for a bit of color I blended red ink on the largest and the third largest layer and sprinkled it with water to get the ink to react and lift to create this nice splatter effect.

On the smallest rectangle I stamped the three little owls standing around a cupcake and colored them in with alcohol markers. For a bit more interest I also used a glitter pen and applied some glitter on the cupcake and the little party hats.
After adhering the different layers together, I also wanted to include a sentiment. I used another die to cut the sentiment "congrats" from gold mirror card stock and adhered it to the second smallest layer.
To finish off the card I also adhered some gold sequins using tiny glue dots. I really prefer using glue dots over liquid glue because 1) I don't create a huge mess (which I usually do) and 2) I can remove them and stick them to another place when I am not satisfied with the look.

I hope you liked the card that I made this week! Have fun crafting!

Guest Designer- Amy Tsuruta "Don't Worry Be Happy"

 Hi Friends,

Today, we have the privilege of having a Seattle designer join us on the blog. Her name is Amy Tsuruta and she is co-founder of the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog, a papercrafting blog that incorporates the love of anything coffee/tea with cardmaking.

She will be joining us these next few weeks to show us how she uses DeNami for her unique cardmaking style. This week's theme is All About Layers and her card is not exception. She uses various layers to create her fun and crafty card. This card design would be great for using up those scraps you have around.

This freestyle card is also good if you are one of those that have a hard time centering or lining up layers. There is no wrong way to do this card. If you notice, she has a layer using a recipe. How fun is that?! 

Be sure to check out tomorrow's post to see Jeanin's layered project. See you then!

All About Layers- Day 2 "Monster Birthday Card)

Hi Everyone!

I always feel like birthday cards for boys are little harder than ones for girls. This week I made a birthday card for boys using Happy Monster Party and layering 2 border stamps to create my background. I have to say that this one of my favorite boy birthday cards that I have created!

To create the background, I used the Three Line Border and Stitched Border stamps to create a fun plaid background. The colors for background are yellow, red, light blue, and green dye inks. I chose the colors to coordinate with the monsters. The monsters were stamped in black ink and colored in with Copic markers. Next, I cut out the frame and the monsters using the same die. The die creates both a frame and the panel so I used the both the panel piece for the monsters and the frame that it cut out of the white cardstock. I ran the die through again with the red polka dot pattern paper to create the red frame. Next, I adhered the red frame to the white cardstock frame to add a little dimension. To assemble the card, I adhered the plaid panel on my base and then my frame at an angle on top of that. Last, I placed the monsters inside the frame.

I think this card is so cute and fun to give to a boy for his birthday! I hope that you enjoyed my card this week!
