DeNami Design's December Blog Hop: GIFT TAGS!

HAPPY BLOG HOP DAY!

I'm so excited! It's another fantastic blog hop from DeNami Design! I always look forward to these days. It's such a joy to see all the different creations and receive so much feedback.

If you've been following the hop from the beginning, you probably just came from

Beverly Montez' blog Sweet Sentiments. She is so talented! So many of her creations feature adorable critters and characters. SO CUTE!

If you are just joining the hop or you're lost, you may want to start at the beginning HERE. Not only is this a great way to get inspired, but you can also win prizes! Two lucky blog hoppers will be chosen to receive a $20 gift certificate to DeNami Design. For more details, check out the DeNami Design Blog.

...On to the HOP!

I was excited to make some tags using my DeNami stamps. I couldn't decide, though, if I wanted to make something sophisticated, elegant, or fun & festive. So...I decided to make three completely different tags!



My first tag uses two fabulous border stamps by DeNami to create a sophisticated pattern.



Supplies: Stamps: N112 Harlequin Border, N128 Three Line Border, Joy Dot (from TR22 Christmas Word Dots set) (all by DeNami Design) Inks: Lady Bug, Cottage Ivy, Tuxedo Black (Memento) Papers: Tag (unknown), Gold Foil (American Crafts), White (The Paper Company) Other: Copic Markers, Quickie Glue Pen, Red Glitter (DeNami Design), Gold Stickles, Gold Gel Pen (Pilot), Red Glitter Rickrack Ribbon (unknown)
My second tag features one of my favorite elegant stamps of all times: DeNami Design's Large Holly. It's such a stunning centerpiece, and then I used little leaves around it to complete the tag.



Supplies: Stamps: N95 Large Holly, Two Leaf Sprig (from PF37 Elegant Floral stamp set), Three Leaf Sprig (from PF05 Rosevine Flower stamp set), Peace Dot (from TR22 Christmas Word Dots set) (all by DeNami Design) Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento) Paper: Tag (unknown), Gold Foil (American Crafts), White (The Paper Company) Other: Copic Markers, Gold Metallic Pen (Pilot), Quickie Glue Pen, Green & Iridescent Xtra Fine Glitter (DeNami Design), Xmas Red Stickles, Red Cord (unknown)
My final tag is just fun, festive, and cheerful. I'm a sucker for Christmas lights, so this is a celebration of holiday lights, using some amazing retired DeNami stamps that I've been fortunate enough to find.



Supplies: Stamps: N53 Light Border (retired), Small Bulbs (retired), Cheer Dot (from TR22 Christmas Word Dots set), A89 Mini Starlet, A93 Teeny Swiss Dot, A92 Teeny Star Inks: Tuxedo Black, Cottage Ivy, Danube Blue, Lady Bug, Dandelion (Memento) Paper: Tag (unknown), Gold Foil (American Crafts), White (The Paper Company) Other: Copic Markers, Diamond Glaze, Gold & Silver Metallic Pens (Pilot), White Gel Pen (Pilot), Stardust Glitter Pen, Green Ribbon (American Crafts)
Thanks so much for checking out my blog today. I hope you enjoyed seeing my creations, and please continue to see more tags on the blog hop.

Again, if you're lost, start at the beginning.
