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.

Love how you used the patterned paper on the card and with the butterfly. Love that you have turned up the wings of the butterfly, too. The pearls are a beautiful touch!

This is delightful, Greta! So airy and pretty for summer! (I'm a PP hoarder, too, so I can totally relate. I finally decided it would be OK to cut into some BasicGrey paper from 2008. Silly, right??)

WOW, what an adorably sweet card, Greta! I love the pretty colors and the circle panel with the gorgeous butterfly! You used the lovely paper so beautifully!

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.
