Welcome to the DeNami Gift Tag Blog Hop. I'm so excited to share my pieces with these wonderful artists. I've barely begun my holiday shopping and decorating and this was a great way to jump into the season. Hopefully you take way some great ideas for adding your personal touch to your gift giving. You should have made your way here from the blog of Ann Cox. If you get lost along the way, you can start again or jump in at a specific spot by going to the DeNami Blog site.
Finally, I wanted to use the wreath stamp as the basis of a gift tag and I decided to use the espresso stamp set (and a coffee bean stamp) as the focal points. I added a little color and some rhinestones. Both the wreath and the background paper were punched with Marvy craft punches. Because I wanted to show that sharing a cup of coffee can be a special treat between friends, I used two tags on this card which were liked by the coffee theme and the background paper. The green grosgrain ribbon is wrapped around the bag of coffee and both tags are hanging like stockings on the mantle.
I hope you enjoy the hop and appreciate your stopping by my blog today. Please leave a comment to have a chance to win a DeNami gift certificate. I would have no problem using that up quickly.
The next stop on the hop is
Enjoy the day and have a happy holiday season and new year.

Whew. Lots of camera issues getting my cards posted today and this weekend so please bare with me. I don't think the shots do justice to the cards. In the morning I'll try to get a better shot of the cards posted.

For the ribbon challenge I really wanted to use the crazy orange and black ribbon I purchased with the intention of using it for Halloween. The combo of the ribbon and bling made a quick and cheery card. So, OK the ribbon isn't from DeNami, but the stamps and bling are.
Have you ever purchased something to make a card then somehow the supplies just sit in your studio? Hey, I'm sure I'm the only one to have ever done that. Well I've purchased all three of the DeNami card kits and just finished the Halloween set.

I was lucky to take a wonderful altered art class with Melanie Phillips and Marilyn Rock. Attached are photos of the sample cabinet Mel made and my delayed picture sharing with classmates. I took this class the day on Eygpt Marie Raybine's wake and funeral and my dear fellow artists stopped at noon to pray for her and her family. This wasn't my most productive art day but it was therapeutic to be with my friends and create with my hands. I'll be posting my cabinet. In the meantime, looking at these pictures reminds me of the hugs and prayers we shared that day. Thank you ladies.
