DeNami August Mini Cards Blog Hop!

Hello fellow followers in blogland!  It's that time again, time for another DeNami blog hop!  This months theme is to create some Mini Cards using DeNami Design stamps!
Hopefully, you came here from the wonderful, incredible, amazing blog of one Paulina Nakamura!  WOW I can't believe I have to follow her, but I'll do my best!  =)  Of course, if you need to start back at the beginning or see the full list, check back HERE at the DeNami Blog.    

So, this time around I chose to use my DeNami stamps to create a fabulous card set!  It's a seasonal/all occasion set containing five cards that all have similar elements!  Here's what I came up with: 

As you can see, each card is 3.25" by 3.25" and has 6 similar elements: a DeNami critter, a sentiment, pearls, baker's twine, glittered areas using the Spica glitter pen, and an accent panel on the inside!  Finishing off the insides was an idea that I got from this "All About Stamping" video of contributing designer Britta Swiderski!  She used patterned paper, but I chose to use solid colors that match some elements on the front for each mini card.  Here are the insides of the cards: 


I used several DeNami stamps, including three from the new release!  =)  Here's close up pictures of all of the cards: 

 
 

I love LOVE making mini card sets, and this one was no exception!  I really enjoyed the chance to have each card contribute its own look while still making each card a part of a set that has similar elements!  Did you spot the Lawn Fawn stamps in the holiday card?  I thought it was appropriate to use one card to show how well DeNami and Lawn Fawn work together after the fabulous Denami/Lawn Fawn blog hop this past week!  =)  

OK well you still have lots of hopping to do!  Your next stop is Heidi Spoelhof, whose cards are AWESOME!  You won't be dissapointed for sure!  =)  

Enjoy your hopping friends!  Don't forget to comment on each blog for a chance to win a $20 DeNami gift card!  =D  Have a happy, hoppy day!  =D

  18. So cute! I love that you took the same elements and mixed things up a bit . . . always a design with twine and with pearls or rhinestones . . . but not necessarily in the same place or in the same numbers. Very cool indeed.
