DeNami Blog Hop-Pretty Pastels

Welcome to the DeNami Designs monthly blog hop.  This month the theme is Pretty Pastels.  What's this blog hop all about?  It's a way to see the work of many artists with one purpose:  to inspire stampers to create pieces using DeNami Designs wonderful products.  You should have arrived from Lani's blog.  If you get lost anywhere along the way, hop back to the DeNami blog and you can hop where you want to be.

Who: Anyone who has a DeNami stamp and incorporates pastels on their card/ project.
When: The blog hop starts on May 20th at 6 AM, PST. However, you have until May 21st, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize)
Why: To be inspired by fun DeNami Design creations and also the chance to win mini shopping sprees on the DeNami Design website!

Prizes: DeNami is giving away THREE $20 gift certificates to our website:  one gift certificate to a random participant (DT members not eligible) and TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop! Be sure to leave lots of coments, especially here!

I have a confession to make about this hop.  I am currently in Massachusetts near Boston to attend a weekend of Tim Holtz classes at a fabulous store called Absolutely Everything.  While it is a wonderful store, they don't have DeNami stamps and my creation for this hop is sitting on my workstation in my studio in Albany, NY.  So I am recylcing a previous post with a pastel card made with a DeNami stamp. 




I made this folder to hold a card and gift for a colleague and his wife when they married. The folder includes beautiful pastel floral papers from Anna Griffith papers. The cover has a silver circle tag with a silver vellum sticker. Inside, I embossed a chipboard heart with silver embossing powder and added a rub on quote that I've always loved: Come grow old with me, the best is yet to be. The tag and pocket were just an embellishment for the side to hold the gift.

The card uses a retired DeNami wedding stamp layered on shimmery papers, silver and ivory plus ivory columns. I've included Memory Box ivory pearl accents and a DeNami sheer white/silver ribbon with a touch of silver cording.

Thanks for understanding about the recycled post.  It was a wonderful project and easy to make.  I'm having a blast in the Tim Holtz classes.  Lots to post later.

Next stop:  Nicki Scheck

Enjoy the hop and don't forget the leave lots of comments.  We LOVE to hear from you and you increase your chance of winning a prize.
