DeNami Photo Inspiration

It's funny, but as soon as I saw this photo, I knew what I wanted to do...working it out took a bit of fiddling, but I just love these DeNami roses.  I used the bouquet underneath and then added some single ones to pop off.  Then just had to use my new vine and berry stamp again!

It's a little twist to a normal fall color card, but I like it!  Thanks for stopping by.  The camper is getting packed and soon we'll be off looking for our own real fall color!  A couple of weeks in the New England area will be a great place to look!

Baby Shower

This Saturday I'm going to a baby shower for my friend's daughter.  Now our family is small and I don't really have wedding/baby/graduation stamps, so I have to be creative with what I have.  Luckily I have a few stamps from sets that always include some of these stamps I don't need.  Today I got to use them!  I thought I'd also use this in the Anything Goes DeNami Challenge!

Since I had my favorite background already out from earlier this month, I thought I'd use it again!

And this little saying was just perfect for my new DeNami scallop heart!

Ok, I better go get some actual housework done now!  Thanks for stopping by!

Fall Theme Challenge

When I bought the DeNami say: Sending you smiles across the miles, I thought it was cute but I suddenly had a great idea last night in bed thinking about a fall card.  Don't you all think about stamping in bed?!  LOL!

Anyway, I wanted tumbling leaves to sail "across the miles".  So, I did the tedious thing of using a word or two at a time and had some fun this morning.

And the beginning is actually saved for last inside the little note card...

One photo just doesn't show this card very well, but I'll still try entering in the DeNami Fall Theme Challenge.  Just too much fun is stirring these parts lately!  Don't you just love it!?  Hope you're busy entering some fun cards too!

National Stamping Month!

Ok, so this month is made just for us stampers!  Gotta love it!  And DeNami is really getting in on the fun and challenging us!  I am hoping to get a few cards done before we're off to do our fall vacation of camping!

This card I needed for a friend's Anniversary coming up.  So why not satisfy two challenges!?  That kind of makes it a three for one!  A one for three?! Hmmm...anyway

DeNami Monochromatic Color Challenge and DeNami Addict Button Challenge!

The front of the card was shortened so you see the lovely swirl and leaf pattern from the inside. The inside verse and the front verse are both popped off to add just a bit of dimension.  And I really had a hard time stopping myself from wanting to color the leaves on the front with a touch of green!

I'm not great with the camera, so the dark navy paper looks black and I can't see the glitter on the flowers, but it's there.  I do love the DeNami swirls!  Thanks for stopping by to see my work.
