DeNami Birthday Party Treat Box

Hi Everyone! Elizabeth here with a project for any birthdays you might have this year. Give your guests a little treat in these cute little pillow boxes that are easy to make and don’t take a lot of time.

BirthdayTreatBox

I decided to go with a summer theme for this box since it’s so hot outside and chose a summer plaid pattern paper From Lawn Fawns Perfectly Plaid collection and used the Lawn Fawn Pillow Box die. Assembling the pillow box is easy because all the score lines are made when you run the die through your machine. I used a liquid adhesive but you can also a tape runner. Next, I stamped 3 of the images from the Happy Desserts stamp set and Happy Birthday in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and used Copic markers to color in the images. I punched out everything with a scalloped circle punch and adhered the circle to the pillow box with some liquid glue. All together this project took approximately 10 minutes. It would be very easy to make a bunch of them at once for a party and shouldn’t take very long. I hope that this project inspires you to use your stamps for more than just cards!

DeNami Design Surprise Monster Birthday Shaker Card!

Hi Everyone! Elizabeth here with a fun surprise birthday card! I decided to shake things up a little with this card and have the main scene be in the inside of the card with window that you can get glimpse that there’s something inside.

To create this card I stamped the window on some green pattern cardstock from Lawn Fawns Polka in the Meadow and fussy cut it out and used a knife to cut out the inside. You don’t have to use pattern cardstock for the window. You can also stamp it on colored cardstock or white cardstock and color it in. I chose the fast and easy way of the pattern cardstock. Next, I die cut the yellow pattern cardstock, also from Lawn Fawn, with a stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp. While I had the die out I went ahead and used it on some white cardstock for the inside panel. I stamped the white panel with the Happy Monster Party stamp and Happy Birthday in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and then colored in the monsters with Copic markers. To line everything up I held up the stamped panel with the yellow panel in front and then the window in front of a good light source so that I could see the monsters. I lined up the opening of the window with the monsters and carefully used some washi tape to hold the window where I wanted it. I used a knife to cut out the opening using the window as guide. Do the same thing with the card base and you are ready for assembly. To create the shaker part used very thin double sided tape and adhered the acetate to the back of the window. Then, I used foam tape to create the well for the sequins and adhered another piece of acetate. I attached the panel on the inside of the card and the yellow panel on the front of the card being careful to line up the openings. Lastly, I added the shaker window to the front of the card. I hope that you enjoyed this card and it inspires you to think outside of the box when it comes to your stamps and cards!

DeNami Design Garden Birthday Card

Hi Everyone! Elizabeth here with a pretty garden birthday card. I was inspired by all of the pink and metallic colors that I’ve been seeing lately. I thought that combining pink and rose gold would be really pretty and I love how it came out!

To create this card I heat embossed the Elegant Floral Circle in Rose Gold Embossing Powder from Simon Says Stamp and my brand Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush  to color them in. Then I used a scalloped hole punch to punch it out. Next, I die cut some pink cardstock with a stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp. I embossed a pattern using 3 of the stamps from the Ornamental Flowers set and embossed them in the same rose gold embossing powder. Also, I embossed Happy Birthday that I stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink and used clear embossing powder. Next, I adhered the pink panel to the card base and used foam tape to pop up the Elegant Floral Circle to give the card some dimension. This card would look great in lots of different colors so try it out and see what you come up with!

DeNami Design Teacher Card

Hi Everyone! Elizabeth here with a great thank you card for your kids teachers! It’s fast and simple so you can make one for each teacher.

To create the card I stamped the Apple Basket, Thanks a Bunch and the apple from Happy Fruit in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. To color the apple basket and the apple I did very simple Copic shading coloring by using only 2 shades of each color (see supplies listed below for colors used). Underneath the apple basket and apple I used a light grey to ground the images so it didn’t look like they were floating in space. I used 2 of the rectangle stitched dies from Simon Says Stamp to die cut the panel I stamped on and the plaid paper from Lawn Fawns Perfectly Plaid collection. Next, I adhered the plaid panel to my base and then offset the stamped panel to add some interest. I hope that this card inspires you pull out your stamps and make some thank you cards for kids teachers!

Stampaway USA 2016!

Hi Everyone! On Saturday I got to attend Stampaway USA 2016 here in Cincinnati, Ohio at the Sharonville Convention Center! I was so happy and excited that I got to attend and do some shopping! I got lots of goodies from some of my favorite shops and one new one that is growing on me. I made purchases from 4 different shops but it was so hard to decide what to get. I made purchases from Simon Says Stamp, Stampers Anonymous, Creative Vision and Simply Said Rubber Stamps. At Simply Said Rubber Stamps, I was able to purchase stamps from Lawn Fawn and Stamping Bella. When Simon Says Stamp does a show they only bring there products which I think is great. Also, This year Heidi and Shari were at the booth! That was very exciting for me! I may have geeked out a little bit! I made a haul video of all the goodies that I purchased and you can watch it below. I have to say that every year this show gets better and better! If you get a chance and you can attend next year, you definitely should!

 

 

I hope that you enjoy my video! Until next time!

DeNami Design Noah’s Ark Shaker Card

Hi Everyone! Elizabeth here with another fun project for DeNami Designs! Todays project is my absolute favorite kind of project! Shaker Cards! I love making shaker cards! They are so fun and easy to make!

For this shaker card I used a gender neutral plaid from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid 6×6 pack, so that this card can be for someone expecting a boy or girl baby, or even twins. I used a frame die from Taylored Expressions Frame in Frame die set to create the shaker frame and kept the inside piece to use as the background in the shaker, that way I’m not wasting any paper! I stamped Congratulations on the background piece in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. Next, I cut a piece of acetate just slightly smaller than the frame and used a Scor Tape to adhere the acetate to the frame. Then I cut some Scotch foam tape to go around the frame and adhered it the frame making sure that I didn’t leave any gaps in between the foam tape so that the sequins couldn’t escape. I set this aside to work on the ark. I stamped the Noah’s Ark on some white cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. I kept the coloring fairly simple with Copic markers. For the zebra, I used a very light grey and very light blue on top of each other and then went over that with the colorless blender to lighten it some more. This gives the effect of some shadow and the zebra still looks white. For the lion, I colored him in a yellow and then for his mane, I used a darker yellow that has hint of orange and brown, and flicked the color on his mane. Next, I fussy cut the ark out and to give it a finished look, I went around the edges, from the back, with a Memento Tuxedo Black marker. By doing this from the back, if I slipped then the black would be on the back of the ark instead of on the front! I adhered the ark to the frame with Scor Tape and Zots Bling Dots. To make the card, I adhered the background to a top folding A2 card base with Tombow tape runner after carefully lining everything up. Next, I lay out my Doodlebug sequins on the card and spread them out over the background. I like to place the frame over the sequins to get an idea of whether or not I need to add more sequins and if so which color. Once I have the right amount of sequins, I carefully line up the frame with the background and adhere the frame to the card base.

I loved making this card! I hope that it inspires you create some shaker cards! Until next time!

DeNami Design: Missing You 3D Frame Card

Hi Everyone! Elizabeth here with another cute card for DeNami Design! This week is about adding some dimension to your cards. For my card I went back to my style of keeping it simple and easy!

The dimension on this card is in the frame. To create my card, I first die cut my frame from Taylored Expressions Frame in Frame die set out of pink paper from the Doodlebug Sugar Shoppe 6×6 pack. I then die cut the frame 3 times out of white cardstock and I made sure that I kept the center piece from one of those pieces to do my stamping on. Next, I stamped the Happy Daisy, Happy Flower Pot and Missing You on the piece that I kept in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. I kept the coloring simple for the flower and pot and did no shading Copic coloring (see supplies list below for colors). So that the flower and pot weren’t just floating around on the panel, I anchored them by coloring some grey across the bottom and some shading for the pot and flower. I set this aside while I worked on the rest of the card. I trimmed my pattern paper from the same Doodlebug pack down to 4”x5.25” and adhered that to a top folding A2 card base using Tombow runner. Next, I adhered all the frames together using Tombow liquid glue and stacking them on top of each other with the pink one on top. The 3D frame is adhered to the flower pattern paper using liquid glue. Next, I added some liquid glue to back of the panel with the pot and flower and placed it inside the frame. I like to use liquid glue for this so that I can shift it around a little bit before it dries. The key is to put on a small amount of glue, otherwise your cardstock will warp. To finish the card, I used a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen and added some glitter to the flower. I tried to get a good picture with the sparkle but it’s very hard to capture that sparkle! I hope that my card inspires you to add some dimension to your cards! Until next time!

DeNami Design: Under The Sea Fun!

Hi Everyone! Elizabeth here with another fun card for DeNami Designs! This weeks theme is the beach but I decided to take it a step further and make a fun under the sea card! Lately I have been trying different techniques and combining them together. This card combines ink blending and watercoloring! I love how this card came out!

I will tell you upfront that this card is more involved than most of my cards and it took me about 2 hours to create it. I blame all the fussy cutting! For this card, I stamped out all of my images, and a few extra, onto some Inkadinkado masking paper using a black dye ink. You can use any ink that you have on hand and if you don’t have masking paper you can use post it tape. I fussy cut out all of the images, which if you know me, I hate fussy cutting but it was worth it for this card! Next, I created my scene by placing the masks on Bristol Smooth white cardstock. I did some ink blending over the masks using a variety of Distress Inks (see supplies list below for colors) to create the sand at the bottom of the sea and the water. At first, I was applying the ink using the circle motion but the edge of my masks kept coming up so I switched to pouncing instead and I love the results that I got! After I finished the ink blending, I spritzed the panel with some water from my Distress sprayer and let it set for about 20 seconds and then picked up the water with a paper towel. I removed the masks and my sea animals were mostly clean so that I could watercolor them. Before I colored them in I die cut my panel with the largest die from the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die set. Next, I colored them in using Mini Distress Inks as my watercolor with a water brush. After I colored them I adhered the panel to a top folding A2 card base with Tombow Extreme Adhesive. To finish the card, I add some glitter with a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen on top of all the sea animals and sea shells. It’s very hard to photograph the sparkle you get the from glitter from the glitter pens but I promise you, it’s there and it’s gorgeous!

I hope my card inspires you to try a new technique and combine techniques to create some fabulous cards! Until next time!

DeNami Designs: Summertime Fun!

Elizabeth here with another project! It’s hot here in Cincinnati and I thought it would be awesome to be by the pool with a nice drink so I’m using that for inspiration this week! It’s always more fun hanging out by the pool with a cool drink and some friends!


To create my card, I created the background using the Stitched Border and Happy Cocktails set. For the stitched border, I used Lawn Fawn Carrot and Jalapeño dye ink. For the cocktails I used Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and colored them with some bright Copic colors (see supplies listed below for the colors used). The owl is the new Medium Chillin’ Owl with the new You Make Life More Fun stamp. Both of these are stamped in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and colored in with Copic markers. I die cut it with Simon Says Stamp stitched circle die and then with Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die to keep the stitching all the way around. I also used the stitched rectangle die on the background piece. I made an A2 card base from some yellow cardstock and adhered everything with Tombow tape runner. I hope that this card inspires you to create some summer themed cards using the new stamps! Until next time!

DeNami Design: Sailboat Owl Party Favor Box

Hi Everyone! Elizabeth here with another project for DeNami Design. Summer is here and everyone is having summer parties so I thought I would give you a great idea for a little party favor for your parties. I made a Sailboat Owl Gift Favor Box. If you are having a nautical themed party this will be perfect for you but you can easily change this for any party!

This is a quick and easy project so making them parties won’t take that long! To make this box I die cut the stripe pattern paper using Lawn Fawn Milk Carton die. To create the milk carton you will need 2 sheets of 6×6 paper. You want to make sure that you use a good quality paper so that the box will hold up. To assemble the box, I creased all the fold lines before I adhered everything together. I used my tape runner to assemble the box. For the Sailboat Owl, I stamped the Medium Dot Circle Frame in Memento Danube Blue dye ink and then the Medium Sailboat Owl in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink on smooth white cardstock. To color in the owl, I used Copic markers to do some quick coloring. I used a scalloped circle punch to cut out the owl and agreed it to the box with foam tape. I found some clothes line clips in my stash and there just happen to be yellow, so I used it to close the top of the box.

I hope that you like this project and that you get some ideas for any parties that you have this year!
