DeNami Floral Frenzy Blog Hop


Hello, friends and hoppers!  I'm so excited to be participating in my first DeNami Blog Hop!  This month the theme is Floral Frenzy, and there is sure to be tons of inspiration at every stop.  You should have arrived from Jaclyn Miller's blog, but to start at the beginning of the hop head over to the DeNami Design blog.  Two lucky commenters will receive a gift certificate to the DeNami store, so be sure to leave some love as you hop along!


I recently won a gift certificate to the DeNami store and had the opportunity to purchase this large Lilac stamp.  I love that it makes a large focal point, so the rest of the card came together quickly.  I stamped the lilac branch onto white cardstock and colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and OMS, outlining the image with a T1 Copic marker.  I cut it out with the largest Spellbinders scalloped oval.

The sentiment is the Friends stamp, also from DeNami, stamped and heat embossed in white.  Using a Stamp-a-ma-jig made it easy to line up.  

The Plum Pudding card base is debossed with PTI's Linen & Canvas impression plate, and the dotty paper is from PTI's 2008 Bitty Dot Basics.  A strip of white satin ribbon and a couple of white pearls finish it off.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Plum Pudding, Ripe Avocado, white)
Patterned paper:  Papertrey Ink (2008 Bitty Dot Basics)
Stamps:  DeNami Design (Lilac, Friends)
Ink:  Inkadinkadoo (Black), Clearsnap (Frost White), Copic (T1)
Tools:  Spellbinders (Scalloped oval die), Papertrey Ink (Linen & Canvas impression plate)
Accessories:  Michaels (ribbon, pearls), Stampendous (embossing powder), thread
Coloring medium:  Prismacolor Premier pencils, OMS

Your next stop on the hop is the sweet and talented Karen Baker!  Thanks for visiting, and happy hopping!
