DeNami Design's June Blog Hop: FABULOUS FRAMES!

Hop, Hop, Hoppity Hop! It's Blog Hop Time!!!!


My life sure has been busy recently, which is why I haven't had any blog posts since last month. However, I am so excited to return to the blog world with my favorite time of month: DeNami Design Blog Hop Time! I seriously love this. Not only does it mean SO MUCH to me that I'm a hop stop, but I also LOOOOVE actually hopping around and seeing all the talented bloggers! If you've been following this blog hop in order, you should have just arrived from the incredible Karen Baker's blog: The Bald Dragonfly. She has mastered the art of sophisticated and gorgeous clean & simple designs. If you're lost and want to start from the beginning, make sure to go to one of my favorite websites in the universe: DeNami Design. You've got two days to leave comments on all the blogs for your chance to win a gift certificate! Wowza! Who wouldn't want that?

Now, on to my project. I was lucky enough to find this vintage DeNami frame stamp a few months ago. This was the perfect opportunity to finally use it! I love it! However, I couldn't decide just what to make for this blog hop. I knew I definitely wanted to make a bright and cheerful card, but for some reason, I also was drawn to my Christmas stamps. I felt an urge to make a rustic Christmas card, which is usually not my style, but I felt the need to try it! So, here are my two opposite cards using the same fabulous frame!







Next up on the blog is the wonderful Paulina Nakamura's blog: Pretty Pink Posh. Paulina is a huge inspiration to me. She is so sweet and supportive, and she makes DeNami truly come alive through her blog and the DeNami sites. She is also phenomenally talented. I am constantly "Ooooh-ing" and "Ahhhhh-ing" over her cards. So make sure to check out her project and leave her a lovely comment!


Thanks for stopping by!


Amy
