Valentine Shaker Card

Hello DeNami Friends! 

Today I wanted to show you these tiny shaker cards that you could give to loved ones on Valentine's Day. I think the little owl holding a flower is just perfect for a Valentine's themed card.

First of all I die cut a little piece of mix media paper. I then applied a coralline ink with a blending tool trying to let it fade at the top of the panel. To give it a little bit more interest, I splashed some water droplets on the ink and dabbed it away shortly after. Then I die cut a circle that was large enough for the little owl. To create a shaker card, I adhered some acetate behind the circle window as well as enough foam tape to create the needed space for the shaker material.  

Then I stamped the owl on white card stock with black ink and colored it in with alcohol markers. To finish off the card I used super tiny coralline star sequins and filled up the shaker card.

Monster Hugs Valentine's Day Card

Hi everyone! Francine here!
 Today, I'm showcasing the Monster Love stamp set! 

These three cute monsters are perfect for a Valentine-themed card! I started by coloring the image with Copic markers. I then cut it with sharp scissors. The tiny heart is also from the Monster Love set. I stamped it on a speech bubble and colored it in red. Next, I die cut a cloudy border from white cardstock and stamped the “Monster Hugs” sentiment on it with black ink. I glued a piece of patterned paper to a top-folded card base. To finish off my card, I adhered the monsters and the speech bubble with foam pads to the white panel and the white panel to the card base (also with foam pads). I really like how the red paper shows behind the cloudy border! 

I hope you got inspired! Happy crafting!

Sending You Love Valentine Card

Hello DeNami Friends!

Today, I've got a Valentine card that is perfect to give a friend!  While at Starbucks the other day, I saw these cute heart gift cards, and I thought they would be so cute on a hand made card!  Immediately, I thought of 2 DeNami stamps that I thought would be perfect: CL-C118 Owl in a Tea Cup and CL-F171 Sending You Love.  I hope you like my non-traditional Valentine's day card!

I cut a piece of watercolor paper to make a top folding A2 sized card (11" x 4.5").  After scoring the paper in half, I masked off the back portion of the card base, and blended some coral ink.  I concentrated the color more on the bottom creating an ombre look.  Then I repeatedly stamped the Owl in a Tea Cup image with black ink.  On a few of the stamped images, I colored in the hearts with a glue pen, and sprinkled some Sparklets glitter on top.  After dusting off the excess, I set it aside to dry.  I die cut another piece of watercolor paper with  a rectangle stitched die.  I stamped my Sending You Love sentiment with Versamark ink and heat set with gold embossing powder.  I then popped up the sentiment piece up with foam tape and adhered it to the stamped coral card base.  I threaded some orange twine through the hole in the gift card, and attached it on top using just a tiny piece of foam tape, so it'll be easy for the recipient to remove.

Quick tip:  When repeatedly stamping, it's best to start in a corner and work out.  If you just randomly start stamping, you might get a few spots where your spacing is not quite right.

Adorable Valentine Owl Gift Box

Hello DeNami Friends!

Valentine’s day is coming up fast! If you need a quick and easy little gift for some one or for your kids to hand out at class this project is perfect for you!. I LOVE all DeNami’s valentine themed owls and you can use any of them for this project. This project takes about 10 minutes to complete one but you can easily mass produce if you want to do to make them for your kids class.

First, I used my milk carton die to cut out the box. You will need 2 pieces of the same paper and run it through you die cut machine twice to make the milk carton. To assemble the carton you can use any adhesive but I used a liquid adhesive. Leave the top of the carton open so that you can put treats or a small present in the carton. I stamped my owl and the “xoxo” on white cardstock in black ink. To color the owl, I used Copic Markers. I kept the coloring simple and didn’t do any shading because I didn’t think it was needed. I used a scalloped 1 1/2” circle punch to cut out the owl and adhered it to the carton with foam tape. I found these little clothes pins with Valentine sayings at my local craft store and used it to close the carton. TIP: for the clothes pin to hold the carton closed hold the lip of the carton and push downwards carefully. This will help the paper keep its shape and the clothes pin to keep the carton close. If you don’t do this there’s a good chance that the clothes pin will pop off! This happened to me a few times before I figured out! I hope that you enjoyed my project! Until next time!

Love Owl Valentine's Packaging and Tag

Hello, DeNami Friends!

It’s Lisa P kicking off another week of inspiration from the DT! This week we’re featuring DeNami’s totally adorable collection of Valentine’s Day Owls! Love, love, love these critters!!!

I bought a little Valentine’s Day gift for my 3-year-old niece and decided it would be fun to make my own hand-stamped wrapping paper. She loves owls (could have a little something to do with her mom working for the National Aviary), so it was a perfect fit for this week’s DT assignment.

I started by cutting a piece of white butcher paper big enough to fit the box I was going to wrap. Butcher paper is sold in rolls. I bought mine at Michael's, but if you Google it you can find other sources as well. I spread the paper out on my craft table and went to town stamping a bunch of Valentine’s Day Owls, hearts, and sentiments from DeNami’s Valentine’s Day Collection. I added color to the images with markers.

I used the paper to wrap my gift box:

Then, I created a coordinating tag. I die-cut some hearts from cardstock. I stamped one of the owl images in the center of the smallest heart and colored her with markers. I stamped Happy Valentine’s Day and To/From on the back of the scalloped heart and layered all of the hearts together. I added some sparkle with a clear glitter pen, punched a hole in the top and threaded some twine through. Here’s a look at the front and back of the tag:

To finish, I wrapped some baker’s twine around the gift package and attached the tag with a bow.

What do you think???

I hope you like my project for today and feel inspired to try hand-stamping your own wrapping paper!

Thanks for visiting!!!

Floral Flourish Resist Technique Card

Hello DeNami Friends! 
For this card I wanted to create an ebmoss resist background. I used the three filigree stamps from the new release and I think they are absolutely gorgeous for backgrounds! 
To create the card I started off stamping the stamps with sticky ink on white card stock and embossed them with white embossing powder. I didn't pay much attention to where I placed the individual stamps. Instead I stamped them irregularly on the card stock. 
Because I didn't just want to create a monochrome background, I decided to devide the cardstock into three parts. I used three rectangle dies, cutting two larger frames and one small rectangle. 

Using a blending tool I colored the different pieces with different inks. When applying the ink you are able to see the embossed floral stamps more easily, contrasting with the ink.
To assemble the card I adhered a piece of dark grey card stock to a card base which was slightly larger than the largest frame. I also adhered the red frame on top and used fun foam to give the other two pieces a little bit of dimension.

Monster Celebration Card and Guest Blogger from Switzerland

Hi Friends,

I am excited to introduce a crafter from Switzerland today. I saw her word on Instagram and enjoy seeing her lovely projects. She will be doing several guest posts for us so stay tuned!

We asked her to share a little bit about herself so you can get to know her better. Below that is her description and project. Please welcome her!


My name is Francine. I live in Switzerland in the wonderful Three Lakes Region with my sweetheart and our cats (I'm an animal lover!). I'm bilingual in German and French from birth. I discovered scrapbooking and cardmaking in 2009 by leafing through a book and it was love at first sight! I like playing with different styles and techniques. It depends on my mood and inspiration. bit I always love coloring rainbow and bright colors, making splatters, using stencils and blending tools, paint brushes and watercolors. I started my blog called 1001 Cartes (1001 cards) in 2011 and my YouTube Channel in 2014. I'm also sharing work in progress pictures on Instagram @francinevuilleme

Hi everyone! Francine here! 
Today, I'm super excited to share my first card with you. I'll be back the next two Thursdays with more creations. Thanks so much to Nami for the opportunity! 

For this card, I decided to feature the Monster Celebrations stamp set. These monsters are TOO CUTE! 

First, I colored the monsters with Copic markers and fussy cut them. To make the image pop against the background, I kept the design simple. I chose to make tiny splatters with a spritzer tool over a top-folded white card base. To accentuate the effect, I also sponged a thin layer of Salty Ocean Distress ink in the center. Next, I adhered the monsters with foam pads to the card for more dimension. To finish off my card, I added some adhesive pearls here and there for a festive look.   

I hope you like this card! See you soon with other fun creations showcasing DeNami Designs stamp sets!

Floral Filigree Thank You Card

Hello DeNami Friends!

Today, I've got a floral thank you card featuring the E204 Flower Filigree stamp and K24 Thank You Script stamp.  I hope you like my pink, floral, feminine card!  I didn't really realize how much I love pink until I started card making, LOL!

On a piece of white cardstock, I repeatedly stamped the flower filigree stamp with versamark ink, creating a floral background.  I heat set the flowers with white embossing powder and my heat tool.  Then, I did some ink blending using pink and various red toned inks.  The white embossed flowers will resist the ink making the flowers pop against the ink blended background.  I die cut a scalloped rectangle out of another piece of white cardstock, then die cut a circle within the rectangle, and stamped the Thank You sentiment.  I added some foam tape to the back of the white cardstock and attached it to my ink blended floral background.  Then, I adhered it to a pink card base.  To finish off my card, I added some glitter glue to the center of the floral images, and added some clear sequins.

Quick tip:  When you are using white cardstock, make sure your fingers are not inky!  After all the ink blending, you may end up with some inky fingers.  Take the time to wipe or wash you hands, so you avoid ink smudges!  That's something I have to constantly remind myself, LOL!  I love the look of white negative space on my cards, and I have often had to re-make a card panel because of ink smudges!

You're In My Prayers Watercolor Card

Hello DeNami Friends!

This week is all about flowers and I have to admit that I struggled with this one for a while. My creative mojo wasn’t working. I pulled out all of DeNami flower stamps and started going through my pattern paper. In the end I created this simple sympathy card.

I created a top folding vertical card by cutting a piece of cardstock in half and scoring it 5.5”. The flower watercolor pattern paper is cut to 4”x5.25” and the polka dot vellum is cut to 3.75”x5”. The trick for this card was how to adhere the vellum to the pattern paper. To do this I used a ball point glue pen and placed a dot of glue behind each of the dots on the vellum. The stamp that I used is the Garden Prayers Circle. I stamped it in black ink and colored it using color pencils. I hope that you enjoyed today's project! Until Next time!

Glamorous Floral Gift Tags

Hello, DeNami Friends!

It’s Lisa P. here! DeNami’s newest release included several absolutely gorgeous floral images, so this week the DT's are sharing projects with a floral theme. For my project, I created two pairs of tags.

First up, a couple of layered tags.

To begin, I die-cut two tags from white cardstock using PPPD09 Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Tags Dies. I stamped the sentiment and flowers in VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in gold. I colored the images with Souffle pens and allowed the ink time to dry. The ink from the Souffle pens “puffs up” adding really fun texture (as well as color) to the image. I layered each of my stamped tags with two larger tags, one die-cut from foiled vellum and one die-cut from white cardstock. To finish, I added a few gold sequins, punched a hole in the top of each tag and threaded some gold sparkle hemp cord through. So simple, but so pretty!

Here’s a look at each tag individually (as well as a close-up of the aqua tag):

For my second pair of tags, I used only the larger tag (die-cut with PPPD05 Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 1 Dies). I die-cut the tag twice from white cardstock. I stamped the NEW CL-J157 Flower Filigree Trio and sentiment in VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in gold. I colored the images on the pink tag with Copic markers (just to try out something different) and colored the images on the aqua tag with Souffle pens. To finish, I added a few sequins to the pink tag.

Here’s a closer look at the pink tag:

And here’s a look at the pair:

I intentionally left these two tags as they are…without any holes punched in the top. This way, I can save them to use at a moment’s notice. I can easily add them to a card base for a quick and easy card for lots of different occasions. Or, I can tie them onto a gift bag to quickly dress up a package for a friend/neighbor.

I hope you like my projects for today! Thanks for visiting!

Photo Booth Chickie Card and Guest Blogger from Russia

Hi Friends,

Today I am delighted to introduce to you a popular card maker and scrapbooker from Russia. I saw her lovely projects on Instagram and asked her to share her talents with us. Be sure to scroll down to see all her lovely pics.

Her Instagram handle is @umichka and her website is


My name is Anna and I live in Russia, Saint-Petersurg with my sweet family. My scrapbook life started in 2011, when we were expecting our daughter. I tried some styles and techniques for the first year, and then the Clean and Simple style stole my heart. I equally love to create scrapbook layouts and cards, and also I’m a project lifer since 2014. Recently, I spend more time cardmaking – cards are easy and fast to create and it relaxes me as I start to play with my favorite supplies. I like to make cards with funny scenes and combine some small elements from different sets to get the result I imagine.

I just adore the Build-A-Chickie Clear Stamp Set set! I love the possibility of building my own chickies and even sweet scenes! So for my first post I chose this set and made a "photo booth" style card - it shows the story of one funny guy, his girl friend and his friends.
I used stitched film strip die and stamped some "pictures" inside of it. For making the crowd I used simple masking - just covered some places with the sheet of paper.
For the background, I blended with Distress inks, sprinkled with water and then added some stamped dots with Teeny Swiss Dot stamp and the One of a Kind sentiment.

"Will You Be My Valentine?" Card and Design Team Member Introduction

"Will You Be My Valentine?" Card and Design Team Member Introduction


 Hi Friends,

I am delighted to introduce our fourth team member from Germany! I saw her super creative projects on Instagram and saw her enthusiasm for crafting there. She did some very interactive cards and often even had a little video showing how it moves. I was impressed by that very much. I think you will enjoy her fun cards as you see what she creates from week to week. Her fun personality also comes through on her cute and fun cards, too.

Be sure to follow her on Instagram  @some_bits_and_pieces and see all her fun creations there.

Hello crafty peeps!

My name is Jeanin,  I am 27 years old and live in Germany. I work at the university as a researcher where I mostly work at the computer. Therefore, I love to be able to actually create something with my hands in my leisure time. 
I've always loved arts and crafts since I was a little girl but after finishing school I somehow lost my creative mojo. I started sewing in early 2012 after seeing the great creations of some friends of mine. Later I also got into baking and crocheting. In October 2014 I slowly found my way into crafting and card making after buying my cutting machine, the Brother Scan'N'Cut. I first heard about it (or cutting machines in general) in a Facebook sewing group and was a fool to believe at first that I would never need it. Thanks to YouTube I quickly realized that I had to get one and found tons of card making tutorials. 
Now I craft almost every day. Sometimes I enjoy listening to music, on other days I watch an episode of one of my many TV series I enjoy, sometimes I call my family or friends. I love that I can combine crafting with so many other activities. As I said earlier, I am in love with my cutting machine. The second greatest thing, at least for me, is heat embossing. I can actually recall the first time I saw heat embossing in a crafting tutorial and I was absolutely amazed by it. 
I hope you'll get some great inspiration out of all the cards and projects the DeNami Design Team will show. Happy crafting!

~ Jeanin

Hello DeNami Friends!
Today I am showing you this fun and interactive Valentines card. I used the sentiment "Will you be my valentine?" that I printed on vellum and wanted the question to be answered right away. Therefore I came up with the idea to include the answer in the card. The recipient of the card is able to pull on the golden flap on the right side of the card and the "lonely" coffee cup will change into the picture of it and a donut. I think the little heart above the two images let them seem to be in love. I really liked that.
To create this card I used this heart background that I actually found in a magazine. It has foiled hearts in it and I thought it would be just perfect! I cut out a circle from the paper that was big enough for the second image of the coffee cup and the donut.

I stamped the little coffee cup and the cup and donut on white cardstock and spaced them accordingly. I also stamped the a little donut individually because I thought it would be fun to adhere him near the sentiment as if he is asking the question. I colored the images with alcohol markers.

I adhered the patterned paper to a card base making sure not to apply the adhesive where I want the flap to be. At first I wanted the word "yes" to appear on the white flap but I didn't like that and covered it with golden washi tape later.

To finish of my card I adhered the vellum and the little donut to the patterned paper.
