DeNami Design: Get Well Owl Card

Hi Everyone! Elizabeth here with another card for DeNami Designs. For todays card I decided to use the same layout and main image stamp to create a get well card but using different technique. This will show you how you can take a card that you have made before and completely change the look by using a a different technique. The original card is from June 1, 2016 and was the Outdoor Adventures theme. When I made that card it was intended to be a friendship card. When I looked at the card I thought that it would be good get well card by changing the sentiment and I would do more stamping on this card.

This is the original card:

OwlwithFlower

This is the new card:

 

To create the new card I stamped the Medium Owl with Flower and Happy Sunshine with Simon Say Stamp Intense Black Ink on smooth white cardstock. Next, I colored in these images using Copic markers (see supplies list below of colors). Also, stamped the Under the Weather in black ink after I colored my owl and sun. Next, I grabbed 2 different green dye inks and used the grass stamp from the Flower Patch set to stamp the grass under the owl. I started with the darker green first and then filled in with the lighter green. The panel was cut out with a stitched rectangle die and then I trimmed down the cloud pattern paper with my paper trimmer. I adhered these to my card base using my tape runner. on the inside of the card, I stamped Get Well Soon in black ink and the Medium Owl with Flower in a grey dye ink. To add some sparkle to the card I coated the sun with a clear sparkle pen. It is hard to see in the pictures, but I promise that it’s there! I hope you enjoyed my remake of a card and that you get through your cards and think “how can I remake this card?” Until next time!

DeNami Design: Coffee Gift Card Box

Hi Everyone! Elizabeth here with another post for DeNami Designs. I know a lot of coffee drinkers but personally I’m not one of them. I don’t like coffee at all. So I struggle with what to get coffee loving friends and family. Then I figured out that there is no better gift than a gift card to their favorite coffee shop and for most of my friends and family that is Starbucks. I used Starbucks colors as the inspiration for making a gift card box.

CoffeePillowBox

This project is very easy and fast to make, so you can make lots of them for birthdays, holidays and even parties! First I made the gift card box using the Lawn Fawn Pillow Box die. I chose a pattern paper that is white with green polka dots. Assembling the boxes easy! Just fold the 2 score lines that die creates for you and use tape runner or liquid glue on the tab. The ends of the box have flaps that you just fold in. One of the flaps has a notch and I do recommend folding that flap in first to get a clean look. Next, I stamps the Medium Happy-Cino on smooth white cardstock and colored it in with Copic markers. I kept the coloring simple by not doing any shading but if you want to, you can because the image is large enough. I used a scalloped circle punch to cut out the coffee and then adhered it with liquid glue. I hope that you enjoyed my project for today and that it inspires you to make some fun gift card boxes!

DeNami Designs Sneak Peek #6: Sip and Savor!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to day 6 of DeNami Designs Sneak Peek  on my blog! Todays theme is Sip and Savor! I know a lot of people love coffee so I thought would make this card for all the coffee lovers out there including my husband.

LoveYouMoreThan

To create this card I stamped the Stitched Border in Lawn Fawn’s High Dive dye ink at an angle across my panel leaving enough space for the Coffee Latte Espresso stamp in between the lines. To get two different colors on the Coffee Latte Expresso stamp I used Tombow markers in red and brown. I colored the words in brown and then the hearts in red and stamped. I did this to cover the entire panel. After I finished stamping the panel, I die cut it with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die. On a strip of white cardstock, I stamped my greeting and the Medium Coffee to Go in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. I colored in the coffee cup with Copic markers and then trimmed down the strip to be a little thinner. Also, I trimmed down a piece of teal cardstock that matched the card to be a little wider than the coffee and sentiment strip. I cut both of these with the same die so that I would have stitched detail all the way around on the card. Everything was adhered using Tombow tape runner. This card is great if you love coffee and want to tell someone how much they mean to you.

DeNami Designs Sneak Peek #5: Chickie Bugs!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to day 5 of DeNami Designs Sneak Peek on my blog! Todays theme is Chickie Bugs! Now normally I don’t like bugs but these bugs are so cute! She combined her adorable chickies with bugs and came up with these adorable designs. My favorite is the Chickie Bumble Bee! For my project today I thought it would be fun to do a quick and easy little gift box that could be used as a party favor for a summer party!

ChickieBee

To create this adorable box, I stamped the Medium Dot Circle Frame in Lawn Fawn’s Sunflower dye ink Then I stamped the Chickie Bumble Bee in the middle of the circle using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. To color in the chickie i used Copic markers and added some sparkle to the wings using Wink of Stella in Clear. Unfortunately, you can’t see the sparkle in the picture but I promise it’s there! Next, I used a scallop circle punch to cut out the chickie bumble bee. For the favor box, I used a the Pillow Box Die and sheet of plaid paper from their Perfectly Plaid collection. The die has score lines so that assembly is easy. I used Tombow Extreme Adhesive to assemble the box and adhere the chickie bumble bee to the top. This box is fun and colorful and would make a great favor box for any summer party! See you tomorrow!

DeNami Designs Sneak Peek #4: Outdoor Adventure!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to day 4 of DeNami’s Sneak Peek Week on my blog! The theme for today is Outdoor Adventures. For this project I decided to do a nice simple card. As you can tell, I like simple cards that don’t take long to make!

OwlwithFlower

Ever since I found the best cardstock for ink blending, I have been obsessed with ink blending! For me the best cardstock is Strathmore Bristol Smooth. The smooth surface really allows the ink to go on easy and blend easily as well. Now, I have not tried ink blending with other inks besides the Distress Inks but I have a feeling this cardstock will work well with other inks. To create this card, I stamped the owl with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and very,very carefully blended the sky and grass background around the owl. In hind sight I should have created a mask for the owl and then did the ink blending but I REALLY hate to fussy cut and I was being lazy. After I blended the background, I sprayed it with the Distress Sprayer filled with water and picked up the water with a clean paper towel to get the splatter effect. Next, I colored in the owl with Copic markers and stamped the greeting in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. After that, I die cut the panel with a Mama Elephant Framed Tags Madison Avenue frame die and kept the frame piece to layer the yellow polka dot frame on top of to add a little dimension to the card. I adhered the frames with Tombow Lquid Gel glue to the A2 card base and used Tombow Extreme Adhesive for the panel. This card will make anyone smile! See you tomorrow!
