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 Designs: Donut Worry Be Happy Card

Hi Everyone! I don’t know about you but I love donuts! My personal favorite are custard filled with chocolate frosting! I was wanting some donuts when I remembered the donut stamp and thought I would make a card with donuts and then maybe I wouldn’t eat any! That didn’t work! I still had a donut!

DonutWorry-1

To create this card I first stamped the Stitched Border stamp in Lawn Fawn Hippo dye ink, leaving enough room for the donuts. Next, I stamped the donuts in three different Simon Says Stamp dye inks (see below in the supplies for the colors used) between the grey stitched lines. After that I die cut the panel with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die. I used the larger stitched rectangle to cut out the grey cardstock to go as the bottom layer of my card. For the circle, I stamped Donut Worry Be Happy stamp in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and stamped the donut in another Simon Says Stamp dye ink color. Next, I cut it out using the Simon Says Stamp stitched circle die. When I was designing this card in my head I really liked the of having the stitched look through out the card to bring it all together. To assemble the card I used my Tombow tape runner for the two rectangle panels and Scotch foam tape for the circle to add some dimension. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week! Don’t forget when your creating a card to “Donut worry, be happy” and eat a donut!

DeNami Design Mimi Wedding Card

Weddings are such a special day for the happy couple and giving them a thoughtful and beautiful card for their wedding day is a great way to show them that you love them and are happy for them.

Wedding-1601-1

The card that I made is simple yet beautiful and great for a bridal shower or wedding day. First, I stamped the Mimi Bride on white cardstock and colored her in using Copic markers and I did a little shading to add some depth and dimension to Mimi. Next, I die cut her with a stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamps because I wanted the stitched edge around her. After going through my large stash of paper and cardstock, I found a very pretty pearlized rose pattern paper. I cut it to cover the front of an A2 card and adhered it using my Tombow tape runner. After that, I adhered Mimi to card with part of the right side hanging off the card and I trimmed the part that was hanging over. For the sentiment, I stamped Congratulations on white metallic cardstock and die cut it with a banner die from Lawn Fawn. The banner was adhered to the card with Scotch foam tape to add some dimension. To add a little sparkle, I placed three white glitter enamel dots that I got at Michaels in the top left corner of card.

I hope that you enjoyed my card today. Below is a list of supplies that I used, along with links where you can purchase them. Enjoy!

DeNami Design Monster Birthday Card

Hi Everyone!

I always feel like birthday cards for boys are little harder than ones for girls. This week I made a birthday card for boys using Happy Monster Party and layering 2 border stamps to create my background. I have to say that this one of my favorite boy birthday cards that I have created!

hbd-1610-1

To create the background, I used the Three Line Border and Stitched Border stamps to create a fun plaid background. The colors for background are Sunflower, Love Letter, Summer Sky, and Freshly Cut Grass dye inks. I chose the colors to coordinate with the monsters. The monsters were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored in with Copic markers. Next, I cut out the frame using the Frame in Frame die set from Taylored Expressions and the monsters using the same die. The die creates both a frame and the panel so I used both the panel piece for the monsters and the frame that it cut out of the white cardstock. I ran the die through again with the red polka dot pattern paper to create the red frame. Next, I adhered the red frame using Tombow Liquid Glue to the white cardstock frame to add a little dimension. To assemble the card, I adhered the plaid panel on my base and then my frame at an angle on top of that. Last, I placed the monsters in the frame with some Tombow Permanent Tape Runner.

I think this card is so cute and fun to give to a boy for his birthday! I hope that you enjoyed my card today!

DeNami Design Spring Birthday Shaker Card!

Spring is finally here! Yeah! April showers are here and the flowers are starting to bloom, well if you don’t have deer like I do! Haha! For this weeks project the theme is spring and I have been wanting to do a shaker card for a while now and I thought why not now?! Not only is this card a shaker card but I also did watercolor for the card.

hbd-1609-1

To make my card I created my watercolor panel first. To create watercolor panel I used Distress Ink in three colors, which are listed below in the supplies. Next, I die cut the panel with a frame die from Taylored Expressions that creates a frame and the main panel. I stamped happy birthday in Versafine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. For the flowers and bugs, I used the Flower Patch and Bitty Bugs stamp sets. I used Lawn Fawns Hippo die ink so that it would be soft on the background. Next, attach the acetate to the frame and then attached Scotch foam adhesive around the frame. After that, I attached the back panel to the card base with a Tombow Extreme Tape Runner and then placed my shaker bits  on the back panel. For my shaker bits I used a selection that I had picked up my local Michaels. Last, I placed I attached the shaker window to the card base making sure that everything was lined up perfectly.

DeNami Design & Lawn Fawn: Adorable Little Gift Boxes

Giving small treats is always fun and when you have a cute little box to put them in it’s even better! A lot of DeNami’s designs are perfect for projects like these! You can make these for all kinds of occasions and holidays!

For these projects I used Lawn Fawn Pillow Box Die and Milk Carton Die to create the boxes. The pattern papers are 6×6 pads from Doodlebug that I bought specifically with these in mind. I assembled the boxes using Tombow tape runner. For the images, I picked a couple of different stamps and stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock. I kept the coloring simple with Copic markers and did not do any shading. To cut out the images I used a scalloped punch and attached them with Scotch foam tape to the boxes. To add a little sparkle and shine I used Pico Embellisher in Shimmer on the balloons. If I would have though of it I would have added it to the ice cream also. These are fun and simple little boxes that you can create in a snap!

DeNami Design: Shake It Up With Gift Tags!

You just wrapped the perfect gift for the birthday party that you’re going to and you need gift tag! You could go to the store and buy one but why do that when we are crafty. Shake things up with a shaker gift tag! You don’t need a lot of supplies, so you can make quickly!

You need a set of dies that nest to create your shaker. I used the two smallest dies in the balloon die set from Simon Says Stamps. You will use the largest die tree times. Once to create the back of the shaker and again for the front with the smaller die nested inside to create the window. Then the last time that you use the largest die is to cut the acetate for the window. You may need to run this through your Big Shot a couple of times to get it to cut all the way around. Adhere the acetate to front to finish making the window. On the back of the of the back piece I used the Small Happy Birthday in Versafine Onyx Black ink. Next, cut Scotch foam tape to go around the window to create the enclosure that will hold all your shaker bits. I place my shaker bits on the back piece and adhere the window to the back my peeling off the tape off the foam tape. I used twine to finish them and give them that nice finishing detail. I hope that you enjoyed my project!

DeNami Design Spring Time Thank You Card!

Spring is coming! I can’t wait for the flowers to start blooming but since I have to wait I decided that I would great my own little piece of spring with a watercolor flower box window card. This was my first time working with watercolors and masking at the same time so there was a steep learning curve! If you saw my sneak peek on Instagram with a lot of fussy cut flowers, this is the card that I created with all those little flowers!

To create this card I stamped the flowers on masking paper and fussy cut them out. I placed all of the flowers on some Tim Holtz watercolor paper where I wanted them and then stamped the window with Archival Black ink. Next, I carefully removed and stamped all of the flowers in the same ink. I was careful to start with the top layer of masks and work my way down. To color the flowers I used a set of watercolors that I purchased from Michaels. After that I watercolored each of the flowers making sure to not to color flowers that were next to each other so that the colors wouldn’t bleed together. I did this with each of the images until everything was colored in. Also, I let each image dry before completely before I would color an image that was next to it. This is what took a while. I could have used a heat tool to dry everything but I chose to let everything air dry. After the coloring was complete, I used a stitched rectangle die to trim down the piece and adhered it to my card front. On the inside of the card I stamped the Thanks a Bunch sentiment in black ink. I hope that you enjoyed my project!
