Group Thank You Owl Card

Hi Friends,

This time of year is a great time to thank people and share how much they mean to you. Group thank you cards are a great way to express this and share your appreciation.

Today DT Val shares how she created this colorful owl card. I love how she used textures and dimension to make this a gift in itself.


How about a Group Thank You card today?! That's what I have using this cute image of the group of owls, the Sweety Owl Scene stamp. And the sentiment is from the Assorted Greetings stamp set.

I used patterned paper for layering. I die cut the circles and used enamel dots, roses and leaves as accents.

I used a black burlap ribbon as the band. I added little white polkadots around the red circle with my White Broad Uniball pen. And I dabbed a little but of glitter glue on the yellow colored circles in the image. The images are colored wth Copic markers.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful week, and Happy Crafting!

Happy Holidays Owl Card

Hi Friends,

Today, DT Lisa created an adorable Owl card. HOO whouldn't love this?! Lol.
I am so in love with owls these days. You might be seeing some more in the future.

Have you started your Christmas cards? The best way to get started is by getting some inspiration. Seeing ideas can start an idea for your own project. This card was so sweet. I loved how she double stamped the pine sprig to give it a snowy feel to it. I might have to try that myself!

Read about what Lisa did below. Thanks for visiting!

Hello! It’s Lisa P. We’ve had several snowfalls here in the mountains, so I’m getting really excited about the holiday season! Today I’m sharing a card I made using a few of my favorite holiday images from DeNami Design!

I am absolutely, without a doubt, in love with those adorable little owls!!!

To create the background, I stamped the pine branch from CL-CH003 Winter Pine in white, let it dry, and then stamped it again (slightly off from the first image) in green. I’m super happy with the results! What a fun technique! Here’s a closer look:

So…what do you think?!?! I hope you like my card for today and feel inspired to get inky! Have you started making your holiday cards yet? We’d love to hear about what you’re creating!

Have a great week!

One Stamp Two Ways Christmas Card

Hi Friends,

Have you started your Christmas cards yet? Some of you are already done! It's not too late to get started on your cards.

Today, DT Val created two variations using the same stamp. For those who like simple, one is just perfect for you. For those of you who like layers and details then she has the perfect one for you.

Follow along to find out how to make these cute cards.


Good Morning, Crafters! I've created two similar Christmas cards. One is more simple, and the other has a little more going on on it!
The two stamps I'm using on both cards are Chickie Christmas Trio and Merry Christmas

On this first card (an A2 size) , I created a bunch of layers with the patterned papers, and added the tag with bow. 

I die cut the rectangular shaped from a die sets.

I wanted to have a similar card, but more simple, so I made a second one! This one would be much easier to make a bunch of!

This one is smaller than the first one; it's only 3 1/2" x 5". I also rounded the corners on this one.

Thank you for stopping by today, and Happy Crafting!

Thanksgiving Place Cards

Hi Friends,

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week? Well, you are in for a treat as DT Lisa created some simply cute placecards for your special occasion. It will be so fun to make and use. One idea is to write a personalized note on each card sharing what you are thankful for in them. Whether it is their sense of humor, thoughtfulness, generosity, their smile, etc. We don't hear genuine compliments often enough and Thanksgiving is a great time to share your appreciation.

Thank for stopping by! Follow along to see how Lisa made them.


Hello there! It’s Lisa P. Today I’m sharing some cute and simple place cards to decorate your Thanksgiving table!

I had so much fun putting these together!

To start, I cut three 3” x 6” panels from kraft cardstock, scored and folded them in half, embossed them with a basket weave pattern embossing folder, and rounded the corners. I stamped the sweet little images from the PF49 Thanksgiving Chickies Stamp Set onto white cardstock, colored the images with markers, and die-cut them with a circle die. I die-cut three scalloped circles from patterned paper, adhered the stamped circles to them with foam squares, and then attached them to the tops of my place cards. I die-cut three flags from white cardstock, adhered them to the place cards, punched a couple of holes in each and tied on some jute twine. To finish, I wrote our names on the flags with a fine tip black marker.

Here’s a look at each one individually:

I hope you’ve enjoyed my project for today!

Will you be making any table decorations for Thanksgiving this year?

Happy Monster All Occasion Card

Hi Friends,

I love happy cards! Getting them in the mail is in a whole category all by itself. Since I rarely get hand written mail anymore, they are all the more cherished and are so appreciated. It is even more surprising when it is not for any special occasion, but a "just because" card.

Being a card maker, we have a special opportunity to spread so much love and encouragement through the mail. The card that DT Val made is so happy and cheery that it is sure to brighten up even the cloudiest of days. I love these little guys because they are always smiling and ready to have some fun!

Read about how Val created this little lovely:

Hello Crafters! How about a cheerful one for DeNami Design today?!
I pulled out several DeNami Design stamps for this one:

The Mini Monster and the Circle Scallop are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto decorative paper, and colored with Copics. I added 4mm & 6mm sequins and accents. 

For the base, I rubbed a mustard colored ink on white paper with my blending tool, then stamped all the images on top with the same ink. Then I added white dots. The final touch was adding a little brushed shimmer. 

Hope you like, have a wonderful day, and Happy Crafting!

Happy Thanksgiving Treat Bag

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Hi Friends,

Thanksgiving is a great time to show your gratitude and give little gifts to show that appreciation. On Monday, Lisa shared how to create a simple but cute gift card holder. Today, she creates a cute treat bag. It can be given as a gift before Thanksgiving, or can be given to your guests on Thanksgiving as a party favor.

Imagine filling it with a decorated sugar cookie, a pumpkin scone with an orange glaze, or store-bought ginger snap cookies or as simple as some candy corn. It's not hard to make it look adorable.

Here's what Lisa did:
Hi there! It’s Lisa P. Today I’m sharing a little glassine treat bag that I decorated for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

I absolutely LOVE this adorable turkey stamp and the whimsical font of the sentiment!

I die-cut two PPPD09 Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Tags – one from rustic white cardstock and one from patterned paper. I stamped the D125 Turkey image onto the tag and colored him with markers. I die-cut a banner from gray cardstock, stamped the sentiment onto it and adhered it below the turkey. I layered my tags with a doily and clipped them all together with a clothespin that I dressed up with a twine bow. Now it’s ready to be attached to a glassine bag full of seasonal goodies!

Here’s a closer look:

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

Thankful for You Gift Card Holders

HI Friends,

What do you give to someone you don't know what to get for? Gift cards! Basically, there is a gift card for just about anyone and anything you can think of!

If they drink coffee, there is Starbucks or their favorite coffee house. If they like to build things, there is Home Depot or Lowes. If they like crafting, there is Michael's, Hobby Lobby or JoAnn's. If you really don't know, there is always Amazon, which is my personal favorite, in case you were wondering;)

Finding a creative way to give that gift card can be challenging, BUT DT Lisa made it so easy. You can easily change the theme on the front, but use the pocket she designed for the inside. Take a look and see how simple, but pretty these cards are. You can whip them out in one afternoon for all those you need to give a gift to. With Thanksgiving coming up, now is the perfect time to show your appreciation to those who have done things for you, those who have served faithfully, or those you just appreciate.

Comment if you have people you plan to give thanksgiving or thank you cards for this coming Thanksgiving.


Hello there! It’s Lisa P. Today I’m sharing a couple of gift card holders I made using a new (to me) technique. Let me start by showing you the finished product.

I created two blank A1-size cards (measuring 3 ½” x 4 7/8”). I stamped one leaf from DeNami Design’s CL-GD010 Solid Leaves onto each card in autumn colored inks. Then, using a fine tip black pen I drew in (very loosely and artsy) the outline of the leaves. Isn’t that a super fun little detail?!?! This was my first time trying that, and I’m really thrilled with the results! YAY!

I stamped the E144 Thankful For You sentiment below each leaf. LOVE the beautiful font of that sentiment stamp!

Inside each card, I created a pocket using the PPPD02 Pretty Pink Posh Pocket Border Die. To make the pocket, I cut a strip of white cardstock to 3 ½” x 2 ¼” and then die-cut the pocket edge at the top (centering the die on my strip of cardstock). I then adhered the strip to the inside of the card using adhesive only around the edges in order to form a pocket. It’s perfect for holding a gift card. Here’s a look:

To finish off my gift card holders I tied them closed with some jute twine. Here’s a look at each one:

What do you think?!?!

I hope you like my project for today, and I hope you’ll give this technique a try with some of your solid stamps!

Hugs for a Sweet Friend Encouragement Card

Hi Friends,

Encouragement cards are so appreciated by recipients, especially during times of need. I like to send out a note of encouragement any chance I get. I belong to a homeschool co-op and carry around some note cards and a pad of pretty paper. Sometimes I just give a note to someone that comes to mind, I hear has a birthday or if I am aware of something they are going through.

I don't limit it to close friends or even people I know. I have been known to give a little note to someone that I don't know well at all. Sometimes it even means more when they least expect it.

Today, DT Lisa P created a heartfelt card for a fellow stamping friend that is facing the challenge of her life, cancer. I know it means the world to her friend knowing that she is not facing this fight alone and that people are praying for her and thinking of her.

Here is the card that she made. This would be such a nice one to have on hand for those times.


Hello there! It’s Lisa P. Today I’m sharing a card I made for one my sweet inky friends, Michele, who was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer. A bunch of us Colorado crafty girls got together for lunch with Michele a few days before her surgery to give her big hugs and shower her with love, laughter and support.

I used the CL-F249 Medium Awareness Chickie as my focal point and added lots of sparkle (because if you know Michele then you know she loves her bling *wink*). I framed the focal point with a die-cut tag that I stamped repeatedly with “hugs” and hearts.

Here’s a closer look:

Remembering You Cancer Card

Hi Friends,

It seems many of us are touched by friends or loved ones we hear that have cancer. Today, DT Val created a lovely card for her online friend who is battling cancer. She used the Medium Awareness Chickie. We also have a small version if you wanted to coordinating one to do tags or have more variation. This chickie can also be used for many other kinds of causes. Just color the ribbon to highlight your cause to make it personal. 

Here's what Val wrote:

Hi Crafters! I'm over on the DeNami Design Blog today!
Here's a card today for anyone who is battling Cancer. Unfortunately, I needed to make this card for a dear on-line friend, but fortunately I had the perfect stamp to work with! 

I decided to make the DeNami Design image, Medium Awareness Chickie, the only thing with color; it is colored with Copics. The sentiment is the DeNami Design Hello Friend stamp.

The scalloped oval die and the pretty shape it is enclosed in, are both the new (and gorgeous!) Pretty Pink Posh Decorative Tag 1. I also used a rectangle and scalloped die for the background. Accents are cupped sequins. 

On the inside of the card, I used a sentiment from the DeNami Design Heartfelt Blessings clear stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Halloween Treat Pillow Box

Hi Friends,

I am enjoying fall. There are some things that really make it great like Pumpkin everything, scarves, sweaters, the fireplace, hot drinks, the colored leaves on the trees, and the anticipation of the holidays to come.

Today, DT Lisa created an adorable Fall treat pillow box. It can be used for Halloween or anytime this fall. She used the downloadable pillow box that can be printed as often as you need.

What kinds of ways can you think of? Comment below.


Hi there, DeNami Design friends! It’s Lisa P. Halloween is right around the corner, and if you’re looking for a quick and easy gift idea, I’ve got just the project for you!

I made a super cute Halloween pillow box that can be filled with candy or a gift card! Here’s how I did it.

I used the Small Pillow Box Gifts and Favors Template from DeNami Design. You can download it from their online store and print it out onto cardstock. I cut the template along the solid lines and scored/folded it along the dotted lines. I flipped the piece over to the blank side and stamped it with a bunch of DeNami Design’s seasonal stamps.

I colored the images with markers and added some sparkle to the candy corn with a glitter pen.

I assembled the box, filled it with goodies, and tied on some jute cord. Now the box is ready to give to a friend, family member, or co-worker as a special Halloween gift!

Here’s a closer look at how the candy corn really shimmers when coated with glitter:

I hope you like my project for today! Have a FABULOUS weekend!!!

Monster Celebration Card

Hi Friends,

There is always occasions to celebrate so having a "Congratulations" card on hand is always a great idea. DT Val created a fun and colorful card using the Monster Celebrations clear stamp set. This is perfect for school report cards, best effort in sports, a new promotion, a new milestone...

Here's what she used to make the cards. 

My card for DeNami Design today is a super bright & fun one for sending someone a Congratulations!

I'm using the fun Monster Celebration stamp set, and the Mini Berries stamp & Teeny Holly Berries stamp for this card.

Several Pretty Pink Posh products are also at work here: the Storybook 2 die, the Stitched Borders 3 die, the Gold Stars confetti and 6mm Silly Eyes.

After stamping the images with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, I colored the images with Copics.

I think this card will make someone smile, especially when they deserve a big Congrats!
Thank you for stopping by today, and Happy Crafting!

Halloween Doggie Treat Tags

Hello Friends,

I know so many people that consider their furry friends as their furry "children" and like to give them treats. How fun would it be to give treats to your friend's furry babies! DT Lisa P had a great idea to make cute treats to give them. She recently added her own furry baby, so furry babies are definitely on her radar.

Follow along as you hear her describe how she created this cuteness!

Hello! It’s Lisa P. I recently took my puppy, Pepper, to a play date with two of her best puppy friends in Golden. Since Halloween is right around the corner I couldn’t resist taking along a little treat bag for each pup. I decorated the bags with tags I created using a bunch of DeNami Design stamps and Pretty Pink Posh dies.

Here’s a look at the tags:

Don’t you just love how perfectly the new C108 Solid Pointy Hat fits on those playful puppies?!?! I tried to choose a puppy that looked like each of Pepper’s friends to further personalize the tags. Goldie is a chocolate lab.

On the back of each tag I stamped “Happy Halloween” (selectively inking the sentiment so I could split it up onto two lines), some fun splatters (to coordinate with the front of the tag), and To/From.

Thumper is a blue heeler/australian shepherd mix. I didn’t have an exact stamp to match his breed, but I did the best I could with what I had.

I tied the tags onto some kraft gift bags. I put a smoked marrow bone (one of Pepper’s favorites) in each bag and finished off the packaging with some orange tissue paper. They were a big hit!

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

DeNami Design Supplies:
Stamps: NEW CL-C108 Solid Pointy Hat, PF30 Playful Puppies Stamp Set, PF36 Halloween Stamp Set, J16 Small Splatter, A86 Doggie Bone, D122 To From, F206 Happy Halloween
