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!
