DeNami Product Spotlight

Hi there! It's Product Spotlight Day at DeNami Design, and today (just in time for Mother's Day) we're featuring this elegant "Mother" stamp!

Now, I have to say right away that this card is SO PRETTY in person, but I was really unhappy with the way it photographed. I think it's the glitter that makes it a bit tricky. If anyone has any tips they'd be willing to pass along for photographing cards with glitter, I'd be really grateful!

I used a glue pad to stamp the Swirl onto a Charcoal Gray panel and then added Extra Fine Glitter. "Mother" is heat embossed in Powder Blue Zing! And the Charcoal panels are matted in shimmery Iridescent Blue Ice Cardstock---LOTS of sparkle in person!!!  

I hope you like my card for today and feel inspired to get inky! For some more FANTASTIC ideas head on over to the DeNami Design Blog and check out what the rest of the DT gals and our Guest Designer have created!!! WOWZERS! You will NOT be disappointed!

Have a GREAT day!

This card is stunning, Lisa! Love the way you used the glue pad on the Swirl, and that Zing embossing powder on the Mother stamp is gorgeous!!
