Sweet & Simple

Welcome to my blog & today's cards for the DeNami Blog Hop. If you're going in order, you were just wowed by Emily! I hope she's happy to see I've started to make use of the purple Washi tape I won in her giveaway. For the first card I made it into a flower topped with a button & a pearl. The background is made with one of the stamps in the Retro Borders 1 set using Memento Grape Jelly ink. 
I used the sketch from the new Seize the Sketch challenge & since I included a button I'll also enter over at CAS-ual Fridays.
My next card is super simple with Washi tape flags, a DeNami sentiment, tiny pearls & ribbon. 

My last card was actually the first one I made--not complicated, but not CAS.  I made it for Melissa's baby shower over at CASology--hope she likes it. I repeatedly stamped & white embossed the double circles, sponged on Distress Ink spun sugar & die cut. The darling giraffe was sponged with the same ink & before it totally dried I heated some white embossing powder & colored with a pink COPIC, so it has a bit of texture. I love the plaid stamp which I stamped in VersaMagic Pixie Dust & clear embossed. The border punch is Martha Stewart. 
Lots more blogs on the hop & next up is the DeNami Addict, Tina. If you want to see the entire line-up & prizes, head over to DeNami. Happy crafting!
