Cowboy Sequin Shaker

Howdy DeNami fans! Lisa E. here today and I'm shakin' things up in the west! As you all know our sweet Paulina has the prettiest sequins in her Pretty Pink Posh store. Not only that, she has a HUGE blog hop coming up and our very own Denami Design happens to be one of the sponsors! That's a win win in my book!

For my post today, I've paired some of those pretty sequins and fun DeNami stamps into a wild west card perfect for the guys in your life!

To build the shaker portion of my card, I stamped the Cactus Trio on a white panel (3"x 3") then added the cute sentiment from the Cowboy stamp set. Next I rubbed on a bit of light blue and brown chalk to add a soft sky and sand. Foam tape was placed around the edges, sequins added then topped with the acetate panel. I added a yellow frame stamped with the Teeny Star Background that is topped with a Spellbinders Postage die cut. After wrapping it with a bit of rustic twine, I added the shaker to a card base stamped with the lucky horseshoe from the Southwest stamp set.

The Cowboy Chickie was stamped, colored then trimmed out before adding him to a canvas die cut star. Speaking of stars. Paulina does carry star sequins in her shop, but these on my card were given to me a couple of years ago by my SIL!

If you want to learn how to make a sequin shaker card, Paulina put together a video!  

Watch it above   I   Watch it on YouTube

I hope you enjoyed my card today. We always appreciate your visits and hope you can join us for the PPP blog hop on the 26th! Click the graphic below for all the info on sponsors and how you can participate!

Caveman Chickies!

Hello! Lisa P here with a brand new installment of Chickie Couture! Oh my goodness...I had LOTS of FUN with this one! I hope you like it!!!

Introducing Caveman (and Cave-woman) Chickie:

I can't help but giggle every time I look at them!

I stamped the Large Chickie image twice onto a cream cardstock panel and twice onto yellow cardstock scraps. I added some color to the yellow chickies with markers and then fussy cut them out. I drew their outfits by hand, "dressed" the chickies and then adhered them to the cream panel. I stamped the Doggie Bone, fussy cut it and tied some orange embroidery floss around it before adhering it to my Cave-woman Chickie. The club was drawn by hand and embossed with a woodgrain pattern.

Here's a closer look:

Don't they make a darling little couple?!?!

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! 
DeNami Design Supplies

Other Supplies
Wax Paper
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. 

Have you been following along with the Photo Tutorials? If you have missed any of them, CLICK HERE.  Whether you need some inspiration, want to learn new techniques or just need a refresher course in crafting, this is the perfect resource. 
Thanks for popping by the DeNami Blog today!

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.
