Hey



Hello there! I'm up on the DeNami Design Blog today! 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!

Summer Party Invitations



Hi! I'm up on the DeNami Design Blog today! 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!

Gift Wrapping Idea



Happy Monday! I'm up on the DeNami Design Blog today 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!
