Poppy Sketch #9

Hey there! It's time for a brand new Poppy Sketch Challenge! I think this sketch is one of my all-time favorites! Check it out:

Isn't that elephant sweet?!?! And so perfect for paper piecing! The dotty border and hearts are also from the same stamp set. You will definitely be seeing more creations using these images (and the other images and sentiments from this set) in the very near future!

Balloon Trio

It's Product Spotlight Day at DeNami Design! Today we're featuring this SUPER CUTE balloon trio:

 
I decided to pair up the E175 Balloon Trio image and a masking technique to create a GIANT cluster of balloons:


 I think this would make a fabulous wedding card! You could easily change up the colors of the balloons to coordinate with any wedding color combo. I also added glitter to the white balloons for a touch of pizzazz!

What do you think?!?!

June "Inspired By" Feature With DeNami Design

Hello there! It's time for the June "Inspired By" Feature with DeNami Design! Today my fellow DT gals and I are sharing creations that were inspired by this ADORABLE card by Jennifer Loftfield:


Such a happy creation! Totally makes me smile!

I was inspired by the sweet little duck, the dots and the twine. Here's what I came up with:




I think this would make a darling thank you note for a baby gift. You could change the twine and ribbon colors to coordinate with shower or nursery colors, for baby girls or baby boys, etc.

You can see Jennifer's original post HERE. And be sure to stop by the DeNami Design Blog to see how the rest of the design team was inspired by Jennifer's fabulous work!

Thanks for stopping by!

Chickie Couture #17 and a Giveaway!


Hello, DeNami Design friends! Popping in today with a brand new installment of Chickie Couture! Can you believe this is my 17th  Chickie Couture post?!?! Wowzers! THANK YOU to all of you who have been so supportive and left so many sweet comments on this feature over the past seventeen months! I have had SO MUCH FUN creating each and every one of these new chickies along the way!!!

To show my appreciation, please welcome Gracias Chickie:


I stamped the I60 Large Chickie image onto yellow cardstock. Then, I placed a piece of lightweight printer paper over top of him to hand draw his sombrero and maracas. I fussy cut the hand drawn elements from the printer paper and used them as templates to create the same elements from cardstock. I added color with markers and a touch of sparkle with a glitter pen. To finish, I cut everything out and added it to my card base along with some colorful cardstock strips and a simple "gracias" sentiment.

I think he's pretty darn cute! I hope you do too!

Now how about a GIVEAWAY?!?!

Just leave a comment on this post for a chance to win: one D135 Crab stamp and one CL-E179 Feeling Crabby sentiment stamp. Comments must be received by June 30, 2014 at 11:59PM PST. I'll announce the lucky winner here on my blog on July 1st. GOOD LUCK!!!
