Stamp Resist Tutorial by Tammy

 
Hi DeNami friends! 

Have you wondered how to add a little texture to your cards? This easy technique it not only simple and inexpensive, the results can also add so much interest to your cards!

Other Supplies
Cardstock
Wax Paper
Iron
Distress Ink
Ink Blending Tool
 











 
 







 
 












NOTE: No damage to stamps will occur from using an iron as you are only applying heat for 3 seconds. Another fun thing to note is the more wrinkled your wax paper the more variation with the resist, but you have to be careful to not wrinkle too much as your image may not be visible.

Inspired By....Barb!

 
 Barb's original post can be found HERE

It's the 3rd Wednesday of the month and that means it's time for a new Inspired By feature. This monthly feature is unique because we are using YOUR DeNami creations as inspiration. If you missed the news on how you can submit your cards, don't worry, you can still link them up! CLICK HERE for all the info.  

I'm excited that we are highlighting one of our customers that has been a long time participant in our blog hops and challenges (when we had them). Let's give a warm welcome to Barb! 

For those featured, we're giving them the opportunity to share a new card, inspired by their previous creation. Not only will it have them re-inventing the wheel, they'll also get to take the spotlight!

Barb used the same stamps and paper pack from the original card, but look at the vast difference in look. Isn't it amazing how adding certain elements can change the whole feel of a card? LOVE this aspect of being creative!

RV Chickies

Hello DeNami friends! It’s Deb here and today I have a quick and easy card to share with you using only two stamps: RV chickies and Make Way! It's Your Day!
 

To create my card, I stamped RV chickies onto some grey cardstock. I selectively colored in the chickies and the wheels with my copics and then trimmed it out with scissors. The reason why I kept it gray is because my dear sister and her hubby recently purchased an RV, so I wanted it to look like “Miss Peggy” as much as possible. Then using some patterned paper from a digi paper pack, I placed my long rectangle nestability onto half of the sheet. I ran it through my cuttlebug and then trimmed out the border around it. Then I took my frame attached it to the card front with foam adhesive. I stamped Make way! It's Your Day! in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins with Crystal Laquer. Lastly, I added my RV chickies using foam adhesive as well.

That is all for me today. I hope you have had the chance to visit the blogs participating in the Buttons and Bows blog hop. If not, there is still time to comment and see everyone’s fabulous creations.

Salon Chickies

Happy Thursday!

It's Tammy and I have a bright and cute card to share with you today here on the DeNami blog. 


I am showcasing Salon Chickies today which was released in January. As we look down the road towards the end of spring and start of summer, we think about graduations. I thought it would be cute to share some inspiration if you needed a card for someone who may be finishing up Cosmetology School. Wouldn't this be darling?  I used a sentiment from the Thoughtful Greetings Stamp set. The yellow cardstock is embossed using a Chevron Embossing Folder. A length of aqua and green ribbon was added to the left side of the card front which was embellished with a Lucky Green Boutique Button.

Thank you for visiting the DeNami Blog today!

Product Spotlight- Happy Easter

Good morning! 

I hope you all are enjoying the longer days and hopefully are getting some sunshine. We are scheduled to get a few days of sun here in Seattle and I am getting very giddy. There's something about rays of sunlight coming through the window that makes a day happy. 

Today the team is showcasing an older sentiment, but it definitely is a classic. With Easter right around the corner, we're featuring the F160 Happy Easter, which is done in Nami's beautiful handwriting. It works with so many of our images, let's dive right into the DT samples!
