Cards Denver and Akron show

Hi All,

Although I haven't posted most recently, I've been creating cards galore. We just returned from a fab show in Akron, OH and will be headed out to Milwaukee, WI.

Here are some cards done at the Akron show.

These following boxes were made by Jen who works with After Midnight. She used our paisley collection of papers to create custom boxes for goodies.
Here I am among our stamping friends from Christy's Main Street Memories located at 25 East Main Street New Concord, OH 43762

Card Design contest

Hi All,

This week 2sketches4you will be featuring a card "sketch" contest. How this works is that you design a card based on the "sketch" posted. It's amazing the creativity and results of how each card designer envisions their card based on the "sketch".

By submitting your card, you will be entered to win a DeNami Design prize. Be sure to let me know in your comments that you entered. DeNami stamps are not required to enter, but I would love to see what you submit using our stamps. Good luck!

Special thanks to Kazan and Laura for their incredible blog and great work!

BTW, we will be in Denver, CO this weekend for the Stamping to See You stamp convention.

Card Inspirations

Hi All,
Here is a special pocket card. It can be used as an invite or a special greeting card. The fruit slice is stamped in the Impress Cherry pink on the Magenta cardstock for a nice tone on tone effect. Stamp the drinks in the Versa Fine Onyx Black and color in with water based markers. Tombow markers were used here.

Cards Tucson and Portland Show day 8

Hi All,

I had fun designing this card. I used the versatile circle stamps. You can change out the center image to make it suit any occasion.

This "cake" was using our new scallop rectangle stamp. It's versatile. You can stamp the long stemmed flowers on is when upright or as a background for all kinds of uses.

Cards Tucson and Portland Show day 7

Hi All,
I enjoyed layering the punches on this card. The center dot was punched in the 1 inch circle punch with mounting tape and each layer of the scallop circles had mounting tape. Fun colors.
This was stamped in the Brilliance Platinum and with the 3D Lacquer on the tips of the filigree stamp background sprinkled with the iridescent silver Sparkletts glitter. The card was the eggplant. It is very elegant and easy to make.
