June DeNami Blog Hop-Patterned Papers

Welcome to the June DeNami Blog Hop.  This month's theme is patterned papers and there is sure to be lots of fabulous ideas throughout the hop.

You should have arrived from the blog of Kanani Kawamura. She's another talented artist on the DeNami Design Team and has posted lots of inspiring cards.  

If you get lost along the way, just hop back to the DeNami blog site and you can jump in wherever you want. 

The details of the hop:


When: The blog hop starts on June 9th at 6 AM, PST. However, you have until June 10th, 2013, 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 will giving away THREE $20 gift certificates to our website! They be giving away one gift certificate to a random participant (DT members not eligible) and TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop (one each)!

This week I had to create a wedding card and I went back to an all time favorite, the wedding block design stamp. I really wanted to use the Authentique Remembrance papers. They are so rich and elegant.  The elegant DeNami stamps are my favorites, so it was easy to pair them together. 

I used a solid green base and layered the Remembrance 3 paper (a floral grid pattern) on top. Then a layer of the reverse side of Remembrance 3 (a deep purple), then Remembrance 1 (a large floral with a patterned scalloped bottom).  What can I say:  I wish they chose different names.

Next another layer of the purple layer mounted with foam tape then a cream layer with the block designed embossed in gold.  I stamped another image of the block embossed in gold then cut each block individually and cut away as much white space as possible.  I layered solid green behind the cut away piece and mounted them with more foam tape. 


This side view shows where the dimension is added with the foam tape.


The inside has a cream liner on both sides for lots of good wishes and a message embossed in gold and layered on the green and Remembrance 2 paper.



While you are hopping on Sunday, I'll be finishing up with the Nakamura family at the Syracuse, NY stamp show.  During a quiet moment I snapped this shot of Nami, Bryant and Evan.



And in another quiet moment, Nami created this fabulous folding card with lots of layers of one of the new stamp images.  I won't spoil her idea more but will say Paulina should definitely show this card on the blog in more detail.   

In the meantime, hop over to Jennifer Harris  and continue to get your DeNami fix.  Make sure to leave me a message and enjoy the rest of the hop.  You're half way through!  Enjoy.

Annette
