DeNami Cards for Guys Blog Hop

If you're visiting me on the DeNami Cards for Guys Blog Hop, you're right on track having arrived from Tenia's jazzy blog HERE.  If you're lost, just head to the DeNami blog for a complete listing HERE.  My brother-in-law has a summer birthday & he loves to go out in the woods camping or panning for gold, so I used one of my all-time favorite stamps--this DeNami branch.  I stamped it multiple times with peeled paint Distress Ink, often not re-inking.  The DeNami pine cone is then stamped on the panel with gathered twigs Distress Ink.  I also stamped it on a scrap of kraft cardstock, colored it with a Memento Desert Sand marker, cut it out & mounted it with foam tape.  I added some Clear Rock Candy Distress Stickles which gives the effect of glistening rain--common here in Oregon!  I distressed the edges with my fingernail & inked them with shabby shutters Distress Ink.  The card front has the dots from the new DeNami Retro Borders 1 set stamped in walnut stain Distress Ink for a little texture.  The focal piece is mounted with foam tape.  I love the font of this DeNami greeting stamp which finishes off the card along with some twine & a couple little brown buttons.
 
Time to hop over to Annette's for more inspiration HERE.  Don't forget, two gift certificates will be awarded to people who comment along the hop--good luck!
