DeNami Design Sneak Peeks

Hello there! It's a SUPER exciting day here in blog land because today is the first day of sneak peeks for DeNami Design's newest collection!!! What a brilliant way to kick off the new year! And trust are going to LOVE LOVE LOVE what DeNami Design has in store for you!

Today we're giving you a glimpse of the brand new "Woodland Friends" collection, which will be available for sale starting on January 10, 2014! It's full of ADORABLE little critters, whimsical natural elements, and fun sentiments! Perfect for ANY occasion! Let's get to it!

First up: a pillow box I made and decorated with the new D163 Woodland Gnome and E176 Woodland Mushrooms!

Doesn't that little gnome just bring an instant smile to your face?!?! What a handsome little guy! 

I created the pillow box using a template sold by DeNami Design (see supply list at the end of my post). The templates are super simple to use and fun to dress up with stamps, ribbon, baker's twine, washi tape, etc. They're also the perfect packaging for gift cards!

Next up: a set of Woodland Friends Valentines featuring the new D164 Little Fox, D166 Little Beaver, and D168 Little Skunk!!! A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!

I instantly fell in LOVE with these critters the moment I saw them!!! Here, I've used a combination of old and new DeNami Design stamps to create little Valentines that are easy to mass produce and therefore would be perfect for your kiddos' classroom Valentines.

For each card I simply die-cut two rectangles, one in colored cardstock and the other in white cardstock. I stamped the polka dot background on the front of the colored rectangle in VersaMark. On the back, I stamped the following:

I then stamped the images onto the white rectangles and added color with markers. I tied on some baker's twine and attached the white panels to the colored panels with foam dots. Ta-da!

Finally: a little gift bag featuring the new E177 Little Fawn! Isn't she precious?!?!

When I saw this little fawn, I knew I wanted to create some kind of baby card or giftie item with her! This time around I used my newly acquired Gift Bag Punch Board (from We R Memory Keepers) to create a tiny gift bag that would be ideal for wrapping up booties, a onesie, a bib, or a cap for a new little one.

I hope you enjoyed my projects for today!!! What do you think of DeNami Design's "Woodland Friends" collection so far?!?! Anxious to see more?!?!
