Product Spotlight- Balloon Trio 
Hello and Happy Wednesday! 

Today is a bittersweet day... it's the last Product Spotlight until September and that has us a little sad. However, the design team has really knocked this one out of the park with inspiration!

We're featuring one of our newer stamps this week- the adorable Balloon Trio. This image works SO well with our critter images (as you'll see in the blog hop), but it also can shine by itself. Don't the the size of this stamp fool you; it can make a big impact on your cards!

Let's take a peek at what the team made.....

If you purchase this stamp this week and you win, I'll refund your money back! *Winner will be announced next Wednesday!  

This week, you'll save 10% on this adorable stamp. PLUS, you can choose whether you'd like it in a cling or wood mounted option! No coupons necessary!

 Okay, let's get hopping....your first stop is Lisa Petrella's blog! 

Be sure to leave a comment on this blog and all of the others for your highest chance of winning!

Embossed Elements: Cloudy Skies

Greetings, DeNami friends! It's Emily coming to you today with the June edition of my monthly Embossed Elements feature here on the DeNami blog. Today I'm featuring a truly versatile item: the Cloudy Sky Embossing Folder from the DeNami store. There are just so many different ways to use this awesome design!

My first card is a sweet all-purpose card. It uses just one DeNami stamp (Noah's Ark), and two embossing folders: Cloudy Sky and Beach Waves. I think this would be so cute as a baby card, a baby's first birthday card, or even a thank you note for a Sunday School teacher!

My second card is perfect for the 4th of July! I again used the Cloudy Sky embossing folder as a backdrop, this time for an outdoor celebratory scene featuring Chickie in Balloon, Chickie w/ Sparkler, and Patriotic Chickie. The sentiment comes from the Everyday Greetings stamp set.

I hope this gives you some ideas you can use with the Cloudy Sky embossing folder! Thanks for taking a peek at my embossed projects today. Be sure to check out my giveaway!

Please hop on over to my blog, My Little Slice of Bliss, and leave a comment there for a chance to win your very own Cloudy Sky Embossing Folder I have one up for grabs! Commenting will be open until midnight on June 25, 2014.

Thanks for dropping by!

Fishing Chickie Tag

Hello DeNami friends, Lisa E. here today sharing an easy masculine tag. This would be great for Father's Day (a day or two late, or maybe next year!) even a birthday!

First I added a piece of decorative paper to the tag. Next I cut a strip of Orange Stripes Washi Tape  length wise. I didn't cut it in the center, I wanted one strip to be wider than the other. These were added at the top and bottom of the decorative paper. The To: From: sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

After die cutting a piece of adhesive cork, it was stamped with the Small Dot Square Frame then affixed to the tag. I stamped colored and punched out the Fishing Chickie then added him to the cork piece with foam tape. Using a regular hand hole punch, I punched three cork dots to add to the tag. And finally a length of twine was looped through the top opening.

We're happy you could stop by today. Please join us tomorrow for an Inspired By post!

Gracias Chickie

Hello, DeNami Design friends! It's Lisa P here with a brand new installment of Chickie Couture! Can you believe this is my 17th Chickie Couture post?!?! Wowzers! THANK YOU to all of you who have been so supportive and left so many sweet comments on this feature over the past seventeen months! I have had SO MUCH FUN creating each and every one of these new chickies along the way!!!

To show my appreciation, please welcome Gracias Chickie:

I stamped the I60 Large Chickie image onto yellow cardstock. Then, I placed a piece of lightweight printer paper over top of him to hand draw his sombrero and maracas. I fussy cut the hand drawn elements from the printer paper and used them as templates to create the same elements from cardstock. I added color with markers and a touch of sparkle with a glitter pen. To finish, I cut everything out and added it to my card base along with some colorful cardstock strips and a simple "gracias" sentiment.

I think he's pretty darn cute! I hope you do too!

Washi Tape Gift Wrap Tutorial

Happy Friday!

As crafters, we may have a bunch of cards in our stash. But how often do we have gift wrap that fits the occasion, too? Today, I have just the solution you may need to quickly come up with gift wrap that meets your gift giving needs.

It’s best if you start off with a neutral gift box: kraft or white is best. For my project, I created my gift box using my Martha Stewart Score pal using the instructions provided with the scoring tool. My finished box is 4x4x2 which only required 2 sheets of 8x8 cardstock.
DeNami Design Supplies
Ruby Red Boutique Buttons

Other Supplies
gift box
old book pring
2" scallop circle punch


You can also embellish your gift wrap washi box using stamps. DeNami carries a bunch of coordinating washi and stamps like Camera and Film Strip washi.
The possibilities are endless! Have fun creating!

Patriotic Chick

Hi DeNami Friends!
It's Tammy, and it's my turn to share a card with you today. It's a little Patriotic number.

I started with a navy blue card base. I took white cardstock and placed it in the Stars Embossing Folder and ran it through my Big Shot. Next I took Fired Brick and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks and blended them onto my embossed star images.   When complete, I added to my card base.  I added a piece of patterned paper cut from a Spellbinders Label 1 cut in half to the left side of the card front.   A length of Red Baker's Twine was wrapped around the card front and added to the left side. 

The Celebrate Circle was added inside a die-cut circle which I layered onto a a red scallop circle and white embossed star using the Stars Embossing Folder.  Lastly, I added Patriotic Chickie inside and colored him with copic markers. 
A final finishing touch was adding a patriotic star ribbon embellished with a Sapphire Boutique Button. 

I hope you are inspired to start working on your patriotic cards! 

Thanks for stopping by the DeNami Blog today! Have a wonderful day!

Butterfly Friends

Hello DeNami friends! It’s Deb here and I have a CAS but bright card to share with you today. I used only 2 stamps but sometimes I think that is all you need.

I inked up Large Butterfly in Tuxedo Black Memento ink off centered twice and then colored them in with copics. I opted not to color in the butterfly border or body because I really like how the colors stood out. Then I selectively inked up Hello Friend and trimmed them out. I ran a few stitches with my sewing machine through each sentiment to attach them to the card front.  

I hope you have been able to visit this month’s blog hop participants. It’s the last one until the fall. You still have time to comment and be eligible to win.  

Have a great week!
