Tropical Drink Set - DeNami Product Spotlight Blog Hop

Hi there!

Today DeNami Designs is spotlighting the Tropical Drink set. You get a 10% savings for one week only! It's also a Design Team Blog Hop and I am your LAST STOP on the HOP! Hopefully you have hopped along the way and left a comment for your chance to win this stamp set! If you are just wondering in, no problem, you can find the list below!
I started with a DeNami Designs Emearld Green card base onto which I added my DeNami Designs Watermelon patterned paper along with a panel using the Letterpress technique. This stamp set screams summer to me!  I stamped my sentiment on a die-cut panel which I trimmed in half.  
On pink cardstock, I stamped the Dot Circle Stamp adding the delicious drink glass from the Tropical Drink Set. Final finishing touches include a Boutique Button and a trim of Hot Pink Grosgrain Ribbon.

The Ribbon Reel 56 - Thinking of You!

Hi and Good Evening!

Hopefully this post is making it's way to you as I will be away for a bit and this post is scheduled. It's another bi-weekly challenge at The Ribbon Reel! It's Lenet's turn to host and she ask us to make a card or project inspired by the picture- plus add ribbon, flowers and lace. 

Here is my take:

 The Products Used From The Ribbon Reel:
I used a sentiment from Paper Sweeties Occasions sentiment set. I made a flower from tissue paper. I used a variety of papers from my stash and distressed the edges. 

Here is the inspiration photo.

DeNami June Pin-spired #2 - Celebrate

Hi and welcome to the DeNami June Pin-spired showcase.  

Here is my card:
Here is the Pin-spired photo:
I started with a white card base which I trimmed a 1/4 inch shorter which leaves a peek of the back panel of the card.  I then cut a panel from DeNami Emerald Green cardstock and stamped it using the Gingham Background. (Can you see it?) A white doily and scalloped circle was added to the center of the card.  A thin yellow strip cardstock was placed at the lower portion of the card. 
Using a peach ink, I stamped the Celebrate Circle to the center of the decorative die-cut panel adding an image from the Tropical Drink set which I finished decorating with some Tutti Frutti Boutique Buttons

I took a length of Melon and White Baker's Twine and wrapped it around the left side of the card face tied in a bow and embellished with a Boutique Button

Please be sure to stop by and visit my teammates and leave them some love!

10 Minute Craft Dash - Dropping You a Note

Hello Friends!

I am sharing a card I made very quickly for the 10 Minute Craft Dash which is sponsored by DeNami Design Stamps.  The DeNami Design Team was invited to play along. 

Here is what I have....

That started with this.....  
I had a card concept in my head, but it turned out totally different when I tried to get my layout to fit. I didn't have time to re-cut the die pieces, but I like how it turned out...I almost didn't make it. I totally broke a sweat and thought for sure this was going to be a fail! I am so glad you can pull your supplies first. Otherwise, I would never make it.

I started with a pink card base onto which I added my white panel.  I cut three different hexagons. Next I ran the cuts through again using the size down to cut the centers out of each.  I played around with my layout for the hexagons until I got them how I liked. I then stamped my sentiment in the lower left corner.  Next I stamped the mini butterfly in my pink, yellow, and gray ink. Finally I added three small solid hexagons to the left side of the card front above my sentiment. 

Final time to completion: 9:59.5

Here is the color graphic! :-)

You're Swell...

Hi there!

It's that time of year when Father's Day and Birthday's sneak up on having said that I had to get cranking and slowly cranking it is...I am finding it hard to sneak crafty time right now. 

Most of you know I tend to create more shabby layer upon layer cards..., but truly, I am an eclectic crafter...I craft by mood, and today I was in a fun and cute kind of mood. I did jump start my mojo with the current Paper Smooches Designer Draft Challenge, however my creativity got going with the scene, so I took some creative liberty with the sketch if you will! :-) The bones are still there!:-)
Here is what I have to share! 
The entirety of my card with created using items from my scrap pile. Sadly, I never make a dent in "said" scrap pile.  I started with a yellow card base (not even sure of the color name/brand as it was in the stash), and I added my striped patterned paper. (DCWV). I added some fun glitter ribbon to the top.  Next I created my scene on a piece of white cardstock.
I used Paper Smooches Surf and Turf...I had to use the Pelican because it reminds me of my home state of Florida. I miss home tons. Besides the obvious of missing my family, I am a coastal gal at heart! :-) I then added Mr. Crab holding the fun sentiment "You're Swell!
I die-cut the clouds and added a touch of white paint to them. Being a girl who loves buttons, I added a row at the bottom...all of which have been laced with twine. 

I hope you enjoyed my fun little share. I am joining in at: Paper Smooches Sparks. I added my pelican and cloud to the left side verses the right, and well, I needed another cloud and my sweet crab in there. :-)

The Ribbon Reel #55 - Happy Birthday


{This is my second post of the day, if you are looking for the DeNami Designs Patterned Paper Blog Hop click here)

Hard to believe it's time for another challenge at The Ribbon Reel already! Zuzana is our host and she has asked that we create a card with pearls, plus ribbon, lace and twine. The Pearls can be adhesive, brads, pins...whatever your heart desires as long as you show us your treasured pearls.

Here is what I created today.
The Supplies from The Ribbon Reel used:
I started with a white card base next adding my white lattice rectangle cut.  I added some patterned paper from Pink Paislee Bayberry cottage collection to the center. I stamped DeNami Designs Decorative Crest Circle with Peeled Paint distress ink onto my green cardstock. I added three beautiful rose buds to the center embellishing with some pearls from my stash. I die-cut a fancy flourish adding to the top of my Decorative Crest. 

I tied a double Mauve Mesh bow which I further embellished with an Ivory Button Twine double bow, vintage pearl button and a sentiment tag stamped using DeNami Designs Thoughtful Greeting Set. I just love how perfect these little sentiments are for tags. :-) A final finishing touch was adding some crochet trim across the top. 

Here is the new inspiration photo to kick start your mojo.
Please head over to The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog to see what the other talented ladies have created for you.  We hope you join us in the gallery over the next two weeks for your chance to win some Ribbon Reel goodness.

Paper Sweeties June Post Release and Rewind

Hey there!

Yesterday was the Paper Sweeties June Release and today I have one more share using a new and previously released stamp. I hope you have had a chance to check them out and added a few to your shopping cart. 

My share today is rather CAS with touches of embossing. I just wish wish wish I could photograph white cards well. I used Faith, Hope, and Love and the sentiment from Spring is Here.

To keep with the wedding theme, I wanted to make a card that would be perfect for a Bridal Shower.  It has a simple elegance to it.
As you can see, I embossed the lower portion of the dress adding color to the sash and flowers. I added a length of blue ribbon and tied in a bow adding a simple white rose to the center. 
Please be sure to stop by the Paper Sweeties Blog and the rest of this talented team to see one more Paper Sweeties creation!  

I hope you have enjoyed looking at the new creations for Paper Sweeties the last few days! I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day that is showered with love!

Paper Sweeties June Release Party


It's Day 3 of the June Paper Sweeties release and that also means all those fabulous sets you have been getting sneak peeks at are available in the Paper Sweeties Store! Today I am sharing the  LOVE set! This is a "builder" set where you can create your own stamps and postmarks. But there are other possibilities as well as with any stamp set.

Inspiration for my card started with this vintage image I had in my stash. It sure was an awesome jumping point to build my colors and design. I just love the vintage/distressed images of the stamps. 

Don't forget that today is the day to get your hot little hands on some new Paper Sweeties goodness! Please head over to the Paper Sweeties Blog and the rest of the Design Team to see what they have whipped up for the release.
We will be back tomorrow with one more creation where we will be mixing some previously released sets with the new, so I hope to see you back here!
