Denami Designs Mini Cards Blog Hop



I'm excited once again to be a part of Denami Designs Blog Hop, as I love their stamps (especially those little chickies).  You should have arrived here from Tina's blog.  

If you are looking to start at the beginning of the hop, you can click here to get to the Denami Designs Blog where the fun and creativity begins.  It is also link you can click if you get lost along the way.  You have until 11:59 p.m. PST August 15th to leave comments on the blogs to be eligible for prizes.  They are giving away three $20 gift certificates to their website.  

Big decisions on my project for mini-cards.  I had just gotten the Thanksgiving Chickies stamp set a few weeks back, and those little chicks were chirping away at me.   When I pulled them out . . . well, let's just say that birds of a feather flock together.  They brought their friends with them:  Pilgrim Chickies and  Pumpkin Chickies.  I had so much fun with these little stamps!  


I created six mini-cards.  I plan to use them to spread some Fall cheer and will probably punch one corner and tie with curling ribbon onto a loaf of pumpkin bread or some Fall treat or treasure (maybe on a pumpkin).  You could also use these for Thanksgiving Place Cards for your dining table.  


I used . . . 

  • Brown Bazzill cardstock but into 3" x 6" pieces and scored for 3" x 3" cards
  • Pattern Paper (double-sided) from Reminisce's new Fall line, cut into 2 3/4" squares
  • Bo Bunny Dark Orange Dot paper (punched into circles and scallops)
  • Cream Bazzill cardstock for stamping
  • Small Scallop Circle Punch
  • Medium Circle Punch
  • Olive Green Ribbon
  • Twinkling H2O Paints from Creative Imaginations
  • Stazon Black Ink


My designs were stamped in Black Stazon Ink, and then I used Twinkling H2O's to paint my chicks!  They've got a bit of a sparkle to them that you don't really see in the photos . . . but if you have used Twinkling H2O's, you know the sheen I'm talking about.  It is awesome! I punched my designs using a small scallop circle punch, and then adhered to a larger circle punch (cut from the Bo Bunny Dot Paper).  

Each card is a little different . . . I altered backgrounds, altered the stamps used, and altered where my "Give Thanks" sentiment was placed.  






I can't wait to put my little gift cards to use!  

Your next stop on the hop is the creative Larissa . . . who likely has something fabulous to inspire you!  

Don't forget to leave your comments to be eligible for the prizes, and I welcome you to become a follower of my blog as well.  Hope you were inspired to put your DeNami Design stamps into action!  

Keep creating!
