DeNami Pretty Packaging Blog Hop

Welcome to another DeNami Blog Hop.  If you're going in order, you should have come by way of Wendy Elliot's inspiring blog.  Don't worry, if you get lost or want to get all the hop details, just head over to DeNami Design
The one thing I make every year for gifts (& for us--hubby's favorite!) is pumpkin bread.  This year, thanks to the theme of today's blog hop, I've made my first decorative wrap.  I used my recently purchased DeNami image (on consignment at my LSS--lucky for me someone didn't realize what a great stamp this is!) with my stamp positioner inking with Versamark, embossing with Zing Glitter Green powder & coloring with barn door Distress marker.  The little sprig stamp is also by DeNami & is embossed with the same powder.  I used a pretty sheer white shimmery ribbon to tie on the wrap.  The tag is made with a MFT Fishtail Flags die.  Lots to see, so better keep this short.  Your next stop is the blog of super talented Deb W., & I know you won't want to miss it.  Leave me a comment to be in the running for a DeNami $20 gift certificate.  Happy Holidays!

Greta! This is so pretty! The kind of gift packaging someone (i.e. ME!) wouldn't want to open for fear of destroying the packaging. It's perfect!

Great gift wrapping for those homemade breads!

Seriously...I would have NEVER thought to make a wrapper for my loaves of bread. I just love how you stamped the edges to frame your focal stamp and layerd the cardstocks. What a great idea and what a score on that stamp image! Thinking now that I've seen it in action I just may need that one ;)

Emily Keaton said...
