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!

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!

DeNami Designs Sneak Peek #3: Summer Delights!

Summer is here! Time to go to the beach or the pool and just chill! In the new release Nami out did herself with the summer themed stamps and the Poolside Owl is one of my favorite! When I saw this cutie, I thought it was time to try a new to me technique, no line watercoloring. This is my first attempt at this technique but I think it came out pretty good!BeachsideOwl-1

I have watched many videos on YouTube on how to do this technique but I like watching Kristina Werner’s (you can visit her blog by clicking on her name) videos the most for this technique. The watercolor paper that I used for this project is some that I had purchased at Michael’s. Also, used a waterbrush and many different colors of Distress Inks. To stamp the images so that you get a light image to color in I used Antique Linen. This ink is very light and works well for this technique. I stamped out my entire scene using the Antique Linen ink. Next, I squished a couple of the colors that I was using on an acrylic block and used my waterbrush to color in small areas of the scene. It is very important that you work on one area at a time and that the areas that you work on aren’t touching otherwise you risk the colors running together. For example, I colored in one seashell and then the chair that the owl is sitting in and then another seashell and then the umbrella. I worked around the entire scene and did touch ups where needed. I let it dry completely overnight and came back the next day to finish the card. I stamped the greeting in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and ran the panel through my Big Shot with the largest Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die. I adhered the panel with Tombow Extreme Adhesive to an A2 card base. I love this card and wish I was sitting on the beach somewhere listening to waves! See you tomorrow!

DeNami Design Sneak Peek #2: Yummy Food

Hi Everyone! Welcome to day 2 of DeNami Designs Sneak Peek Week! Todays theme is yummy food. Nami created some really cute food theme stamps for this release and as soon as I saw the hamburger and fries I knew what I created for my project.

This card is fairly simple and easy to make. The first thing I did was some ink blending on Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock and used my Distress Sprayer to create the splatter look. Next, I die cut it with Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 2 dies. I stamped the sentiment at the bottom using Versafine Onyx black ink. To line up where I was going to stamp the hamburgers and fries, I trimmed a piece of white cardstock to go underneath the top panel and lightly traced circles with a pencil. The hamburgers and fries were stamped in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored in with Copic markers. In my stash, I found some polka dot pattern paper and trimmed it down to be bottom panel of my card. I used my Tombow tape runner to adhere the hamburger and fries to the polka dots and Scotch foam tape to adhere the top panel. This card is cute and fun to give to a friend or someone special! See you tomorrow!

DeNami Design Graduation Owl Card

Hi Everyone!

Graduation season is upon us and I was completely not prepared for it! This card is my favorite kind of card: fast and simple! I wanted to make a card that could be used for kids younger than high school because it is hard to find graduation cards for them.

To make this card, I found some cute pattern paper in my stash that I have had for a while. It came from paper pad from Michaels that had papers for all the seasons of the year. I stamped the owl in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white Copic friendly cardstock and colored him in with Copic markers (see the supplies listed below for the colors used). I stamped the dot circle border around the owl in Lawn Fawns Sunflower die ink and used a scalloped circle paper punch to cut him out. Next, I stamped Congratulations on white cardstock and trimmed it out with with scissors to have a flag end. Lastly, I adhered to an A2 card base. I used my Tombow tape runner for the the pattern paper panel and the sentiment. For the owl, I used Scotch foam tape to add a little dimension to the card. On the envelope, I stamped the owl in the same black ink. I hope that you enjoyed my card and I will be back next week with another card! Below is a list of supplies that I used along with links where you can purchase them.
