DeNami Summer Blog Hop



Welcome to another DeNami Blog Hop--my 4th one!  If you came from Andrea's inspiring blog HERE, you're right on track.  You can find the whole line-up & details at the DeNami Design Blog HERE.  Lots of inspiration to check out, so I'll get right to my card.

I'm one of those "Printed Paper Hoarders"--LOL, but today you can see that I made myself cut into this wonderful SEI sheet.  I love DeNami's new cling set, Fancy Flutters.  I stamped the butterfly with Distress Ink pumice stone twice & quickly added clear ep.  The same ink is used to color in the sections of the bottom image.  The other one is paper pieced & attached with glue dots only on the body so the wings can be turned up.   Spellbinders are used to cut white & pumice circles which are stamped with DeNami double circle & dotted circle.  The circles are attached with foam tape to each other & the card front over a strip of the pp & pink grosgrain ribbon.  The butterfly is attached to the white circle & tiny pearls are added.  The sentiment is also a DeNami stamp.  Glad you came by--don't forget to leave a comment to be in the running for a prize.  I know you'll enjoy what Jennifer has for you at the next stop HERE.

    I can relate to your patterned paper comment. It seems like there are just too many I can't live without. However, I do enjoy using it when I can.
