DeNami Design Blog Hop


Easter is almost here, so I made a couple cards for friends.  The Easter greeting will be inside. For the first one I used one of my old & favorite DeNami stamps--the 3 tulips.  I colored the blooms with a Crystal Lacquer Pearl Pen & the leaves with markers & then used my Wink of Stella pen.  The sentiment is also by DeNami & is black embossed.  The stitched dies are by Lil' Inkers.  

Card number 2 also uses an old DeNami stamp--the solid egg.  I inked it with Brilliance Coral (it's actually pink--no idea why it has that name!) & then stamped it with the Solid Leaf Sprig inked with VersaMagic Aloe Vera.  I had to use an applicator to add more of the green ink to the leaves before using my Wink of Stella pen.  The design would have been better using an egg die, but I had to make do with an oval & I still like it. Memento Gray Flannel was used for the sentiment & was sponged on the dry embossed piece. The beautiful pink & green twine was used by Lisa on the blog candy I won & worked perfectly here.  


The Verve challenge color combo inspired me & I'm entering SSS Wednesday.
If you didn't get here by way of Deb & Leah, be sure to check out what they have for us today--always a great stop on the hops!  If you're going in order, next up is Linda's Blog & I know you'll enjoy what she's made. The entire participant list & details on the prizes are on the DeNami Design Blog.  Have a great Sunday & enjoy the hop!  I'll catch up with you when I get home from work.
